Now that Irex are starting to close their web site down we really need to get a system image that is version 2.12 - I would imagine that you wont be able to update to that version online any more. Its quite an important update because it has the DRM mobipocket reader on it.
Anyone know if there is a version 2.12 file system image out there somewhere?
I wonder if the 2.12 firmware image could somehow "replace" (as in write to eprom) the native boot rom version 2.10? Also, why not include "developer/shell access" to all at the same time and avoid needing to download anything afterward. This way the latest firmware version (2.12 or 2.12.1) would
then be the default boot rom version.
Using their IDS, I think this should be done by iRex prior to shutting done, so that everyone has the ability to reflash or reformat when they're gone....
I went through something similar before. When GEMSTAR, the maker of my hardware ebook reader, the REB1200, went bankrupt and shut down their content servers, they gave us a HUGE parting gift; they opened up the closed
content server to be able to upload personal content!
So if iRex decides to shut down FOREVER, what else do you think should be done to enable the iLiad to properly function afterward?
