Requires New SD Image File for Kobo Touch 905C

Hi David. Last night I had the white screen of death on my Kobo Touch 905C. Can you send an image file?

On another note, for the new SD card, do I need specific specs for it? Specific size or from specific manufacturer? I have a spare 16 GB Kingston MicroSD so I'm wondering if I can use that.

Lastly, is the Kobo Touch supposed to get a little hot? I was charging it sometime before I did something stupid that made it go bonkers, i.e. when it was updating too slowly I pressed the reset button.

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. You can try posting in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=319819 to ask it to be enabled, or contact a moderator.

The image is for a 2GB card. But, it can be put on a larger card and expand the books partition. The Touch is old enough that it probably won't handle larger cards. I'm pretty sure 16GB will be OK.

Any battery is expected to get warm when charging. How warm depends on the battery and charging rate. I have noticed some warmth with some of my devices, but, never noticed anything I would call "hot".

Hi David. I went to "Your Control Panel" > "Edit Options" but I do not see an exact option for Private Messaging. So I ticked anything with, I hoped, similar functionality to Private Messaging while not touching the rest of the default options. From the default I ticked Login & Privacy > "Allow vCard Download" and Messaging & Notification > "Receive Email from Administrators."

That's good to hear that it should work with 16GB.

Should I format a new card (2GB or larger) first before copying to it your image?

If I were to use a larger card i.e. greater than 2GB but at most 16GB, do I need to do anything else to it that's different when compared to handling a 2GB card?

Oh, my bad. I was supposed to have said warm.

Hi David. Can you check if you can now send a PM? I had a previous post regarding this that's much more detailed than this but for some reason it's requiring moderator approval.

Thank you very much David! I'll keep your proscription in mind.

By the way, do you have recommended software for flash drive image writers? The 6-year old vconsole.com link from here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=209122 doesn't appear to have a link for the software anymore but rather for hardware.

On another note can you check my procedures for doing this properly? The posts that I've been reading are several years old so I want to check with you if they're still valid.
1. Format the new SD drive. I haven't formatted an SD drive before but with hard drives they have different format types. Does a Kobo SD drive have a recommended format type?
2. Use a flash image writer to copy the Kobo Touch 905C image to the new SD drive. Do I need to do anything else if using an SD drive with size larger than 2GB? I'll be using the 16GB one that I mentioned previously.
3. Open Kobo Touch. Replace old SD with new one.

There is no need to format the SD card; the imagewrite overwrites the entire card including the formatting.

Thanks Peter. By the way, do you have a recommendation for a flash image writer? I can't find the recommended one from an old thread a few year back.

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/
