Earlier this week we reported (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4017) that some Linux folks (http://developer.berlios.de/projects/librietrans/) were working on a firmware hack to "englishfy" the user interface of the Sony Librie e-book reader. The first firmware patch is now available and at least one Librie owner could tell me that he was successful in applying the hack. Only a few japanese letters, the USB and powersaving message boxes have not been translated yet.

Make sure to read the HOWTO (http://download.berlios.de/librietrans/HOWTO_FW06160R1EN.txt) carefully! Screwing up a flash update could easily render your device useless (in that case don't throw it away, but send it to me - I have a thing for broken devices).
