can someone explain what "limited" means (the things that i wont be able to do after the update)

also

5. Limited options for dumping items from the LCD to the e-ink side.
(again how it is limited)


i know i can easily downgrade to dingo if i didnt like this upgrade , but i am just afraid that something happens to the tablet during the process
I'm glad that you are happy with your EE.

A word of warning, if you do update it make sure you get the update file for the EE NOT the ones for the PE - check before downloading and check after downloading.

I have never had any problems with marking a PDF on the e-ink screen be it lines, squiggles or anything else. Can't comment on landscape mode, I've only used it once in all the time I've had my EE.

I think the answer to your second concern is along the lines of, it depends what you want to move from the LCD to e-ink. I tend to use the built in facility in the default browser to dump information from the net to e-ink.

I do know that I've not lost functions of the e-ink by upgrading to the standard Ermine for EE. We have lost the ability to take still pictures though - they are distorted green images, the video does work without problems.

I will let someone that has updated to version with the market on it comment on that as I am not interested in accessing the market so haven't tried that update.
