Having successfully uploaded the .zip archive on my SD card I rebooted M92 with the card inside while pressing the joystick, as said in the instructions. However, instead of starting the upgrade, Boox shows the default boot screen with a line at the bottom that reads: "Update request received. Searching for an upgrade..." for a few seconds and then boots the device as it normally would, with the loading bar at the bottom and all. I know there already is a similar thread here on the forum (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=175658
), but my device, unlike the one described there, continues to boot. Should I return my Boox to the vendor right away, as recommended in a discussion under the above link?
It came out to be plain and simple. I have to use firmware that is produced by the reseller of Boox in my country.
I guess you bought your device by Arta Tech (onyx-boox.com) ?
They don't allow to install our free updates to their hardware (because of some licence agreements with IVONA), so you have to wait for their updates.
