Impossible read files or update
Hi.

I have a Wolder Boox (Onyx A60), that has the 1.4 20100901 firmware. I'm not sure if is a Wolder Boox-s (Onyx A60-s) firmware.

Now Ebook can't neither open pdf files nor doc files, and isn't possible to update.

I have tryed to use the Wolder_fix, but can't execute kernel_update.oar.

¿Are there any solution?.

Thanks

RE: Impossible read files or update
Seems to be a memory corruption.

What are the errors (if any) showed on the screen when you try to open a file or launch the update ?

You have tried to run the clear-settings-fake-update? (developed by Koudijs and posted by me here http://booxusers.com/thread-313-post-1149.html#pid1149 )

There aren't errors showed on screen. And yes, I have tried tu run the clear-settings-fake-update, but because my version doesn't permit updates, can't run.

Isn't there any way to make and reset or hard reset by hardware?

RE: Impossible read files or update
I don't know any method (if any) to perform an handware/deep reset.

Hence you have a wolderized boox.

how do you know that the wolder_fix cannot be executed?

The steps are described here http://booxusers.com/thread-301-post-1094.html#pid1094

The problem is that I can't execute kernel_update.oar. When I select the kernel_update.oar file, I try to execute it with the OK buttom or with the touch pen, but the clock that shows the execution don't appear in the screen. Confused

¿Is there any eay to make an autorun file on startup?

Have you extracted all files from the archive in the root of the sd card?
It will not work if you run kernel_update.oar from the fix_wolder directory.

RE: Impossible read files or update
Do a simple test

Create a simple and void text file named cmd.oar and write on it this

Code:
#!/bin/sh

dmesg >> $0.dmesg.txt

Then put the file on the root of the SD and try to execute it
return to the main menu and repoen the SD (without a refresh the new file could be hidden)
if works should be here a new txt file named cmd.oar.dmesg.txt who contains some debug information

This test is useful to understand if a script run in any case (against the clock)

First, thanks for the help.

I have done it, but without good results

when I click over the cmd.oar file the screen flickers for a moment (as with the other files like books, etc...), and the clock does not appear. Nor creates the text file oar.dmesg.txt.

RE: Impossible read files or update
What if you run the test script from internal flash instead of sd card?
