Can anyone tell me how to make a backup copy of the existing f/w ?

I am not any sort of Linux geek; mentioning this because when my Jetbook went nutty some folks told me it would take a bunch of Linux command-line wizardry to gain access to it, and that is just beyond my skill level.

Thanks.
The EZ Reader should be a rebranded Hanlin V3. Check out this
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/EZ_Reader If your EZ Readers are like this then the "official" firmware is available at :

If it isn't then you probably can't run OpenInkpot on it anyway.
