I 'bricked' my Cybook.

Yep. My Cybook Gen3 is locked up tighter than Fort Knox. I've tried to turn it on and off - that didn't work because it no longer turns on and off. I've tried pressing the Reset button. That works just long enough to get to the point where it freezes all over again. I've tried re-installing the 0.98 firmware update image. That works long enough to get right back to the point where my Cybook froze when I hit the reset button. I've tried holding the Reset button down for a minute. No go.

I've tried re-connecting it to my PC in order to take off the offending files. (I'd copied an .rtf and .pdb file into the /eBooks folder to see if it could open them. Note, I did not OPEN these files, just moved them to the Cybook.) Doesn't work because the PC no longer recognizes that the Cybook exists. I'm about to pop open the battery compartment and see if completely disconnecting the battery will work. But that's iffy because I don't know if I'll be able to re-connect it as the battery uses one of those weird connectors.

In the meantime, I'm without my ebooks!

I am NOT a happy camper right this minute!
