Yes, I've verified right after dd'ing. I didn't even unplug the microSD+dongle from my PC. I'll try unplugging and plugging back before verifying.

Unless you're making a mistake like putting the image on /dev/sdx1 instead of /dev/sdx

Other than that I have no ideas... if you are located in Germany, I could send you an old 4GB card correctly preloaded with H2O image (and verified to boot in my own H2O, as in - the original H2O, not the later H2O2v12)
Nope, I've dd'ed to /dev/sdc, not any of the partitions inside.
I'm actually in Japan, and going back to my country tomorrow, so if I cannot fix it (or buy another card in time, I'll have a hell of a boring flight

Thank you for your offer though, much appreciated.

EDIT: Even unplugging before verification, still have a difference in line 1, byte 308. Very weird. I'll guess I'll read from my phone.

You can try a convenience store (7/11, familymart), sometimes they do have microsd cards, or you could probably find one at the airport. If you have a laptop you could put the image in mid flight...

Well, I don't know. Have a safe flight in any case!

I finally solved it with a new microSD. Back in my country I will try to see why the old one failed to be written (and expand the FAT partition of the new one, and install KSM and KOreader again, and...). If I find something of interest, I will post a new thread.

Thank you all for your help!

Would someone be kind enough to PM me re: an SD card image for a Gen1 H2O?

To be clear, I have followed troubleshooting instructions: the basic reset (multiple times), the 2 finger tapping reset (multiple times)... the power light comes on, the screen turns white but no dots appear on the screen: the reader won't boot. I press and hold the power button and the unit powers down. The reader is stock/ no mods. Does this sound like a typical case of 'bricked'?

Newbie that I am, I appreciate all of the information on these forums and especially the contributions of the regulars so thank you in advance.

And, unless there is damage to the screen, restoring the image has a good chance of working. But, it might need a new SD card.
