I'm still getting nowhere even with the image file. I suspect my memory card is corrupt. I've bought a new one but before it will let me use it, even to put the image file on, its asking me to format it. What should I format it to? FAT32? I have no idea is this will make a difference.

You don't forget the card. You need to use an image writing program that will access the drive regardless of whether it is formatted or not.

I've not done a restore for some time, but I seem to remember that I did use Etcher at one point; at least it's cross platform, and open source, and is still being developed.

See https://www.balena.io/etcher/

I´m new here looking for some help with my Kobo Glo N613. Hope I'm right here.
It not starting anymore showing the an empty battery symbol and the request to load the eReader. But the battery is loaded (4,15V).
Normal switching on leads to a blue LED light after a short green for a second.
Performing a factory reset leads to a red LED (not blinking) for some seconds.
I suppose the SD card image is broken. I´d replace the SD with a new one but I'd need an image and maybe a hint how to deal with it (already seen some posts about that here).
Can anyone provide an Glo image, please?

Thanks in advance.

Dear davidfor,

you´re a grand sorcerer, indeed.
Thank you for your immediate support.
I used Gergith's hints how to deal with it, and it took just a few minutes that my Glo was working again.
Greetings from the opposite side of the world.

May I receive the Kobo Glo (N613) image file to try and revive my bricked E-reader?
Many thanks in advance.

Thanks a lot! I was able to write the image to the sd card, apply the updates and bring my Kobo back to life!

Could I maybe get the image for the N613? My wife has fallen into the reader in the bathtub, the hardware is still working but the system has errors.

Best regards,
Tobi

Thanks for the image! Hmmm... Imagewriter (from vconsole) does not finish the job, says "a wite error occured". I tried Rufus but it also says the image file is corrupted. Tried re-downloading but same result.

Any suggestions?
