They're 1MB pieces of a large binary (ZIP file). I used "wget" to script the downloading (I used Linux to do it, but there's a Win32 version as well).

Code:
wget -c "http://download.kobobooks.com/vox/images/eng.CAN.20120604.161216/x000"
wget -c "http://download.kobobooks.com/vox/images/eng.CAN.20120604.161216/x001"
wget -c "http://download.kobobooks.com/vox/images/eng.CAN.20120604.161216/x002"
   .

   .
wget -c "http://download.kobobooks.com/vox/images/eng.CAN.20120604.161216/x165"
wget -c "http://download.kobobooks.com/vox/images/eng.CAN.20120604.161216/x166"
If you then concatenate the files together, you'll have a signed ZIP file of the firmware. You can verify that it correctly downloaded by unzipping it.

I rooted a 7" Vox using the process in the prior post. The trickiest part for me was setting up the "man-in-the-middle" webserver, but you also need to be able to mount the filesystem image to create the rooted image that you push back to the Vox.
