You can root the PRS-T1 by copying certain files onto the reader and resetting the device. The details are here:

The method with "resetting the device" is what I meant by "booting the e-reader with the Home and Menu buttons pressed". That would probably work, but I'd like to get the reader_msc tool to work for this and other purposes too.

I've managed to make it work now, had to do two things:

(1) Installed the "Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable MFC Security Update" from Microsoft. This is a 5-megabyte file from their web site, dating from 2012. I ONLY installed that, not the older version, since it seems that this version replaces the older ones, but with some security holes plugged.

(2) While reader_msc.exe itself then runs, the other component it uses, DeviceAccessor.dll, requires msvcr100.dll which belongs to a version of MS C++ later than 2008! Putting a copy of this dll (which I got off of a newer PC) in the same folder as the rooting tool finally got it to work.

I've now run the actual rooting and it seems to have worked!

Good morning.
Is there anybody that still uses this reader?
After more than two years I would like to root my T1. Is there a way to do a backup of my settings\bookmarks\notes\? Because I think that rooting will delete everything, right?
Thanks in advance.

not sure if it works with this tip, be sure to ask someone experienced.

Dear All,

I understand that this thread is quite old but I am trying to root my wife's prs-t1 version 1.0.05.11130 in order to run moon reader and be able to sync locations between the reader and android phone. I got a bit lost with all the available tools (?) , if version 1.0.05.11130 is actually supported, as well as wether the "russification" will turn the reader to Russian language?

Any suggestions would be very welcomed!

It will install fonts that enable you to display books in Russian and other languages.

Disclaimer:
If I remember correctly. I was installing "russification package" on older model PRS-500.
