Tutorial for Onyx Boox M92

Hi!
After having used my M92 with the original firmware it came with over a year ago, I recently updated it with the latest firmware, with the friendly help of Waledemar from http://ereader-store.de/en/, who mailed me these instructions:
.................................................. ...................
Hello,
please download and install this update first:

http://www.ereader-store.de/DATA/update-20121113.zip

Copy the file to a sd card and put it into your device.
Just for case if your battery is not charged properly connect the reader to the wall charger (or USB Port of your PC)
switch off the reader
hold the ok /joystick button pressed and switch on the device.
Wait approx. 10 minutes till the device restarts

Afterwards please install the new patch. It fixes most important bugs in the new PDF Reader

Please download this file:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23593310/pd...f%20reader.rar

Unzip it and copy those three files from archive to the internal memory of your device. In your device click on update.oar and the last update for PDFReader will be installed.
The device will reboot.

Best Regards,
Waldemar

Because it might help some others too, I would like to say this:

Because Waldemar did not mention anything about unzipping the update, I just copied it to an sd card and from there on my M92 as he instructed. It did work exactly as he said.

But to unzip the PDF Reader patch I first downloaded/installed WinRAR (64) as I have Windows 7, 64 bits:
http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-64-b...-10965579.html
This is the free trial version.

When I open the "pdf reader.rar" 3 items appear:

The one on top has under "Name" has only ".." (2 dots) and under "Type" it has "Filemap". The rest there is blank.
The second one has: under "Name": "onyx_pdf_reader" and after that more data.
The third one has "update.oar" and also more data.

In my "Downloads" I right-clicked on "pdf reader - WinRar archive" > "Copy to" > "books (G)". So I did not copy those 3 files separately.

But I don't see "update.oar" on my device to click on. Did I do something wrong?
