Need Kobo Glo Image File Please

Hi All,

Girlfriend dropped the Kobo Glo Model N613 in the tub (true story). Dried it all out, and tried reading the memory card in Windows but it did not recognize the card. Formatted it and am now am looking for an image, and pointers on how to mount the image.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Scott

PM sent with the link. Have a look at Memory Upgrade Mod Guide for instructions on writing the image to the card.

I don't expect that you will be able to recover from this as the water has probably damaged other parts of the device. At the least, you should disconnect the battery and let everything dry properly. Some people recommend putting the devices in rice to absorb the water. The times I've needed to do this (apple juice spilt on a laptop), I put it in a nice warm dry spot for a couple of days.

If you can't get it going, I recommend a Kobo Aura H2O. Dropping one of those in the bath won't be a problem. And a nice bunch of flowers to cheer her up

Kobo Glo Alive!

I took the cover off the Kobo Glo and put it in a bag of rice for a few days, and then hit the board with electrical contact cleaner and scrubbed the board with a stiff 1/2" brush. It would power up but had a blank screen. I was suspecting that this was because the memory card was corrupt.

I took out the 2GB card and formatted it. I then installed Win32DiskImager and wrote the image file to the card and put it back in the Kobo. It is alive and seems to working fine.

Thanks for the image file and the advice.

Memory Upgrade Mod Guide Updated Links

Hi,

I was giving the Memory Upgrade Mod Guide a once over at: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=209122

It shows links for Flash Drive Image Creator and Flash Drive Image Writer that don't point to the correct pages.


http://www.vconsole.com/client/?page=page&id=28
"Flash Drive Image Creator"

http://www.vconsole.com/client/?page=page&id=29
"Flash Drive Image Writer"


The working links are:

"Flash Drive Image Creator"

"Flash Drive Image Writer"
