    Question I have:
    How to reset if Firmwareflash failed and Hardreset does not work?

  5. can anyone help me in this as i am stuck .

    after downloading the prestigio firmware, when i try to flash it , it gives the message "no device that need to update" although i have mine connected

    the instructions for updating flash are in very bad English .

  8. Hi everyone.

    I am from Brazil and I am writing to ask some advice, in case you guys can help me.

    My mother got a TrekStor eBook Reader 3.0 Model No: EBR30-a as a gift from her German friend.
    Then she gave it to me. I have two sons and I thought I could enable it to play videos, so I downloaded the firmware of Prestigio and tried to "hack" it. I followed the instructions from the helper on a page I found, but I did a "stupid" thing: I downloaded the firmware in the device memory, not in the computer. So when I tried to "update/change" it stop working. I can't turn it on anymore, it shows it is recharging, the light becomes on when it is connected, but it doesnt respond when I try to turn it on.

    Do you have any idea how I can make it works again? It doesnt matter if it will play videos or not, it is just sad that we can't use it anymore.

    Thank you.
