Black lines on T76ML - Help

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 21:38:08 GMT

I got my T76ML last month and it's been working okay so far but now my screen has multiple horizontal thick black lines and the screen itself is unresponsive. I can't shut it down with a long press of the power button. None of the buttons are responding except the light is turning off and on. I see there is no hard reset button. What to do? I fully recharged it two days ago and used it yesterday with no problems. WIFI is off and the light was off too. Left it on my desk with the cover closed and now this. Is my screen toast? **I have the T76 ML Carta+ if it helps. Purchased from Banggood.

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 18:11:48 GMT

Nothing that even today does not stop what serves the button that has the pencil of the boox max letter. I've squeezed it everywhere but it does not do anything, so why did they put it on? some end will have but it seems that it is impossible to know what it is for. Does anyone know?

Question on reverting Firmware on Onyx Book Max

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:59:05 GMT

Hi everyone, I have the first version of the Onyx book Max. I've updated it to the lastest firmware this week (1.8.2.) and since then, my computer won't detect the device (both in Windows and MacOS, which worked perfect before the upgrade). Thankfully, I can still charge books on it by removing and loading the SD Card, but it's a bit of a nuisance. Does anyone know if there's a way to revert back to the original firmware? And where I could download it from? Many thanks! Pedro

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 13:36:34 GMT

Foreword: I'm quite happy with my Sony Readers, so suggestions that I buy something else will be ignored. Cheers! So, I am currently running the modified home screen and reader on my PRS-T1 but am considering rooting. Is anybody still using a rooted T1?

Unpack and rebuild the DPT-RP1 upgrade firmware

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 10:32:47 GMT

Hi guys! Before, i found something in the jailbroken DPT-RP1. Now, I pull out the FactoryReset.pkg and some scripts. (FactoryReset.pkg,, dec.key, sig.key) It means that, we could likely modify the .pkg file and make an upgrade. For now, I can unpack the .pkg file, the problem is how to rebuild a modified .pkg? Unpack command: Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- If you run it directly, may get an error likes this: Code: --------- ./ 50: ./ arithmetic expression: expecting primary: "" --------- It’s about the problem of anim section, remove anim stuff in the, we don’t need it. Just delete the whole of this part: Code: --------- ######################################## # start animation for package check ######################################## --------- And then run the command again Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- Or you can run the script which I have remove the anim stuff Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- Finally, you can get some files in the “out” folder (FwUpdater aes256.key iv sig.dat) The “FwUpdater” folder contains the resources. So,the problem now, is how to rebuild the resources back into a .pkg? All files has been uploaded to github Welcome to discuss together! My email: My skype:

Hello All, I have a KA1 with the firmware 4.7.10413.

PW2 Help on SERIAL JB Hardware

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:20:02 GMT

Hello everyone! Greetings from Colombia! I'm trying to JB my PW2 I'm not a overly technical person (only know very basic electronics and coding), but I'm confident I can achieve the Serial Jailbreak following the posted instructions. However, adquiring exactly the identical hardware described in some threads might be a challenge in my country (I usually have to wait months to get things shipped from overseas). I have this hardware laying around and I'm wondering if it could do the trick. *Option 1:* - NTC CHIP SoC Board: This one has UART and a 1.8v pin, but never used it as a UART "client" for other devices. * * *Option 2:* - Chinese PL2303TA USB-to-RS232 I bought this one to play around with an arduino board that I'm still waiting to arrive, so havent had the chance to use it, let alone know how to be certain it will communicate over 1.8v instead of 3.3v (in the spects it says its compatible with both voltages). * *¿Could someone point out which would be a better fit?* On a side note, would the Serial method work on Firmware Thanks all for any help you can provide!

Kobo Touch is stuck on one page

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 02:11:07 GMT

I was gifted a Kobo Touch that worked fine for about 5 days and then got stuck on one page. It's been there ever since. What I've tried in vain so far: Holding the slide button to the right on top which should start up the device. Holding the slide button to the right while simultaneously keeping the home button on front of the device pressed down which should factory reset the device. Reset the device with reset button/hole at the back of the device. Connect the device to my computer with a USB cable. None of these actions have worked. The screen does not appear to be damaged though ( see photo), so now I'm waiting until the device's battery is fully discharged hopefully the device will reboot then. Ideas are most welcome. Thanks in advance.

Replacement for Sony PRS-T2?

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:12:54 GMT

My mom's Sony PRS-T2 is getting temperamental so I need to find her a replacement. She uses it for hours a day and carries it in her purse whenever she leaves the house. She almost exclusively uses it for ebooks from the local library which uses Overdrive ePub mainly. Musts: Small Light Clear, non-glare screen Long battery life Native DRM ePub compatibility (no converting/cracking/etc required) Physical page forward/back buttons if possible iPad mini is too large and heavy, per my mom (my dad, on the other hand, has taken permanent possession of my iPad mini for his ebook reading). Kindle is out due to the library ebook requirement. Since 5" ereaders seem to be a thing of the past, I guess she'll have to live with a 6". I wish there was an option that would let her check books out from the library and download them directly to the device but I don't think there's anything Android based that would be small and light enough. Looked at the Fire 7 HD but it's almost twice as heavy as her Sony. Suggestions? We're in Canada, BTW. Don't have any objection to buying online as long as the seller will take back any lemons without argument.

PRS-T1 Sony Reader MP3 Playing

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:08:54 GMT

The Sony T1 and many prior units, except the 5" ones, had MP3 playback capability and a 3.5mm audio jack. How well do they work with a plug-in Bluetooth transmitter and Bluetooth headphones?

Aura H2O Sanskrit font

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:02:43 GMT

Sanskrit font in Bhagavad_Gita_As_It_Is.epub (downloaded from here ( does not show in my Kobo Aura H20. Using Calibre to do epub-to-epub conversion with "embed all font in document" option did not help. Calibre has KoboTouchExtended and Metadata Reader/Writer plugins installed. I tried some of the steps suggested in this ( 4-yr old thread, did not help either. I am wondering if someone here has figured this out by now. I use Bookerly font and Kobo software version is updated to the latest (4.7.10413). Thanks for any help.

Aura One Limited Edition - Patching

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 15:53:13 GMT

Good Morning - I just received the Aura One Limited Edition. The firmware version is 4.7.10364 and was wondering if there was a patch for this version or a new firmware version that I can install. I love the reader but like the flexibility that comes with patching. Thanks in advance. Trice

Finding your most recent Users’ Guide

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 02:34:57 GMT

On my kindle Oasis 1 there are preloaded 3 user guides, the original one and a version 2 and 3. I’m trying to edit the Household settings and the description of how to do it in the various guides do not fit with the way my device currently works (when I followwhat they suggest it just isn’t set up that way on my device).

Oasis 1 and Charging Issues

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 02:29:11 GMT

There are two things about my Oasis 1 I don’t like. The first is the shape of the screen and the second is how the charge is held partly in the case and partly in the device. I always seem to delink the two and it is quite maddening. It makes me prefer my old PW3. Are there tricks to holding the device so that the case and the device both stay charged as long as possible?

PW3 Unbricking some kindles, advice welcome...

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 16:19:57 GMT

Hi Bought a box of "defective" Kindles out of a whim... now I have 5 PW3s. I opened 4 of them, so I have the possibility to connect the serial console. (Working on a Debian system, with working fastboot connection, got that hurdle...) No1 had a dead battery... replacing it brought it back to life but I suspect the charging circuit might be broken, have to test that. No2 is starting up but then just showing the screensaver (no touch or anything). On the serial console I see U-boot starting up Code: --------- ... Welcome to Kindle ... info asr_setup:Not in asr mode::reason=flag file not present. shutting down asr_setup:: info hardware:no_wan::WiFi only device. No WAN found info board_data_file :/opt/ar6k/target/AR6003/hw2.1.1/bin/AR6003_wfo_calfile.bin:: [ 29.377434] ath6kl: ath6kl_fetch_board_file: Board calibration file fetched: /opt/ar6k/target/AR6003/hw2.1.1/bin/AR6003_wfo_calfile.bin [ 29.449979] ath6kl: MAC from kernel xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:C2 [ 29.859981] ath6kl: host only supports scatter of :1 entries, need: 16 [ 400.888536] pmic_soda_connects_notify_otg_out:423 --------- and that's it... if I connect it to a Win PC I see a drive detected, but I cannot access it. Any Ideas on what might be wrong and how to fix it? I've read about DO_FACTORY_RESET file but I cannot access the drive... No3 shows the same behavior as No2. No4 displays a page of a book but does nothing more, no reaction to reset via power button (>20sec). No5 has a whole in the screen and a bent motherboard... so no help there, but the batter was still alive. Then I've a WP63GW with a strange looking image on the screen, serial console shows Code: --------- [ 1.741247] max77696-epd max77696-epd.0: EPDINT: Regulator Fault Detected [12] [ 1.748534] Regulator Fault Occurred! Retrying powerup... --------- Guess this on is fatal as well... And I've a SY69JL with a kindle Power On picture and a D01100 with a drained battery on the screen, which I did not yet open up. Would be thankful for some tips/hints, I'm fairly new to this kindle stuff :poke:
