Hello guys,

Bricked my Kobo few weeks ago (crash during an upgrade)
Tried every "soft" resets, every available method (buttons, bottom reset small hole with paper clip, tapping the two bottom angles...), still can't make it work...

Am I right saying the only available option for me now is to put back a factory image on the internal SD card ?
If so, can you please send me one ? Thanks

PM sent. But...

A factory reset (tapping the corners) should work in the circumstances you describe. That's because the chances of crash during the very brief time that something was being done that would block this is tiny. Doing the factory reset is a pain because when I have done it, I usually miss the timing and have to try several times to get it right. Of course, you need to make sure the battery has power. Don't rely on what the state was before this happened. It is very likely the device didn't "crash", but a process "hung" and used lots of CPU and ran the battery down.

But, unless there is another hardware fault, the image should fix the problem.

Hello guys,

My Kobo Aura H2O (first edition with external SD card slot, stock firmware) won't boot anymore. LED lights up for a few seconds and turns off, screen does not gets updated and displays an ebook page, regardless of the factory reset method employed. Tried all the factory reset methods described in Kobo Reset: Aura H2O, including the one involving tapping on screen corners while holding the power button.

I think my internal SD card might be dead. Could someone provide an SD image I could flash to a replacement card? Thanks.

Hi davidfor,

Thank you very much for your fast reply.
Replacing the internal SD card using factory image successfully unbricked my Aura H2O.

Disassembled my H2O as described in disassemble kobo aura H2O, and flashed SD card while expanding storage as described in Glo Memory Upgrade, using dd and gparted. Now it even boots faster since the SD card is now class 10 while the original SD card was class 4

I think I'd rather just cut a hole in the back where the SD card is or something if I had to.

The cutter shown in the video wasn't necessary. You just need a plastic card and some patience to properly remove the front frame. And always pushing laterally, not perpendicularly to the frame, with the card to avoid damaging it. Then, only 4 small screws to remove and that's it. Then, if the front frame is not damaged and you use the right glue (not double-sided tape) to put back the frame, the readed should still be waterproof.

Making a hole in the back seems waaay scarier to me. You'd have to push hard with a knife or cutter to make a hole, and would likely break something on the motherboard sitting behind.
