Device: Kobo N647 Wifi
Hi,
Believe it or not, I still have an old N647 Kobo wifi ereader that up until yesterday has been in good shape. I got the same error; when I turned on the Kobo (the WiFi has been turned off for years), I got that "Updating your software" message and now can no longer see the books. Is there any chance that anyone still has that SD image for the Kobo N647 and would also be willing to explain how to apply it to the device?

Thanks for any help on this one. I know my chances are super slim with such an old device and also an old thread.

EDIT: Actually reading the most recent posts I see I'm not the only person with an old Kobo!

And there are a lot of people who are happy with their old devices. If they work, why update? Then there is another group drooling over the idea that there might be another even slightly better device than the one they have in their hands.

I can't believe I'm not the only one with this old device! Could someone get me the latest firmware options for it?

As I said above, there is no reason to throw out a working device.

The last firmware was 1.9.11 or 1.9.12. The device should have downloaded and installed this. But, if you hadn't done this before the February 28 this year, I don't know if there is a link you can download it from. This thread is about reviving hung devices, or devices suffering from some particular issues, using an the full firmware image. If you aren't having problems with your device, you don't need this.

My Kobo is actually giving some sort of corrupt data looking screen, with some tiny lines all across it. It won't boot up.

Which model do you have N647B, N647, N289?
