Sony prs t1 updating
Failure to fully charge the Reader before installing the firmware update may cause the Reader to be unresponsive or to require repair.The Sony Reader™ must be fully charged before installing this update.I managed to corrupt certain parts of the OS and now USB and Wifi doesn't work.My reader is on the latest 1.0.07 firmware and there isn't any rescue package made by the community for this firmware.Maintaining updated Sony PRS-T1 software prevents crashes and maximizes hardware and system performance.Using outdated or corrupt Sony PRS-T1 drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail.
The main thing the update does is swap out the Reader Store link on the homepage with a link to the Kobo store.
The update also removes Facebook sharing and syncing for bookmarks and annotations, since those were functions linked to the Reader Store as well. Signing into my Kobo account did not give an option to add my existing Kobo ebooks to the device.
I went ahead and installed the update on my PRS-T2 because I was unsure if it would actually link the library on the device with my Kobo library or if it would just add a link to buy ebooks from Kobo. Plus there’s no way to access the Kobo store at this point.
I have tried hard resets, replacing the system partition with files from another firmware version, rescue packages but none of those solves the issue - probably due to kernel incompatibility across different firmware versions.
Can Sony Support help me to reinstall the firmware?
