Hi There,

I've been looking over these forums for over a week now, I've tried a lot of things but my ereader keeps on saying opening book... and nothing happens. There is a yellow light blinking.

The ereader is able to get into recovery mode and it's accessible via serial com port.
I've tried to look at the partitions and see if it's broken with e2fs but all seems in order. no Bad blocks or anything.

df output is:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                 9719      3150      6569  32% /initrd

I've tried backing up using roadkills disk image app but this fails at 0,25%

I've been able to use the Boroda restore-set- .It failed making a backup when i used the flash_reader.bat. when I place the folder OS Firmware on the sd card.
I do get a message telling me it's updating, and afterwards that I need to reset. But then the above mentioned state is the same again.

The log of the update shows:

I don't think it's right that some images aren't found. Can anybody help me with this problem?

Kind regards
