What files determine the Kobo Glo HD serial number? I have 2 Glo HDs, and I've upgraded both of them to 128 GB sd cards and even though I thought I was using different original images, they're both showing the same serial number. If I can fix that by just copying a couple files off the original image, I'd like to do that. Thanks!

Sorry, I don't know where the serial number is on the card. In the image, it is at offset 0x200. You can change that using a binary editor. You could probably do the same directly on the card, but, I've never tried.

hey good people,
my Kobo Glo HD froze last night. searching the internet and finding this forum gave me hope that there might still be a chance of reviving it.

any chance to share a SD image with this newbie?

thanks so much

Firstly, you need to enable Private Messaging. This is in the "Edit Options" of the control panel. If this isn't there, it has to be added somehow. A recent person who had this issue solved it in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=319819.

But, unless you they were installing the update over a device just after a factory reset, that shouldn't have happened. The upgrade checks to make sure it only installs the correct kernel. The main part of the upgrade is common. But, it could be that the kernel on it is to old and needs to be updated. It is possible a manual factory reset will get it going. Follow these instructions.

Tried this, not worked.

What happened:

My friend installed this:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=314220

Then a factory reset occurred, when configuring the wifi connection an error occurred, "Firmware update not found", so my friend downloaded the wrong firmware, sadly.

Now the Kobo does't show up on PC (Ubuntu) to put the right firmware package.

David,

Any chance of a link for the SD card image for the Glo HD? My backup seems to be corrupt.

Thanks!
