Please don’t link to licensed firmware in the open forum.

Hi, Waldy. You might want to check the Kobo forum and see how davidfor handles requests for firmware images by using private messaging. While I doubt that Kobo/Tolino would have strong objections to posting links, the private messaging helps to ensure that MobileRead will not come to the attention of corporate sharks lawyers.

My apologies if I am stepping on anyone's toes by posting this message.

Shine1 there are two different motherboard. Basically, everyone has number 1 on their hands. The images that I posted are suitable for number 1.
I also have for number 2, if necessary.

Hi guys
I would like to jailbrake/root my tolino shine. But for the method I have found (via recovery-file) the software on the tolino needs to be on v1.0 or 1.1, mine is still on 1.2.0 after factoryreset. Can anyone help me with finding some way of further downgrading it?
maybe @waldy , it seems you have something helpful

on the other hand, if someone knows a way of rooting with newer versions of the software, I'd give it a shot as well

thank you in advance

I have a Tolino Shine 1 updated to the latest firmware.
I would like to put an image with android or get root to be able to install apk.
Can someone send me instructions and downloads privately.
Thank you

I see you opened the shine as well. My Tolino Shine 1 is no longer booting. So I have searched for the error.
The built-in SD card is defective. Did someone send me a data image of the card (Linux dd)? Then I can replace the SD card.
