I had written recently about the fact that my ereader had died and I was wondering if I needed one or not. Last night, I was getting ready to throw it away when I decided one last time to see if I could get it to work. It was broken already, so what harm could I do? So I used a little more force to try to get the internal SD card out, and I was rewarded with it flying out and on to the table. Then it was a matter of getting an image file to replace the corrupted one I had. It took very little time once I got the file.
So now it is up and running fine. And I find I am more angry with Kobo than I was before. They basically had told me it was too old and couldn’t be fixed. And yet I fixed it with the help of some folks over at mobilereads and a new SD card that cost me $5.
But now that I have done this, I am thinking about trying to put Debian on it. My husband would be ecstatic if I did! Guess we’ll have to see if I am brave enough to try that.
