I wasn't offended. I just wanted you to know that it won't be as easy as finding another firmware binary and loading it into the Kobo. The 2440 cpu chip has many jumper selectable options that change the memory address layouts, and Netronix takes full advantage of this. Check the photos at http://openinkpot.org/wiki/Device/EB600/Photos
to see some of the various boards that all look pretty much alike on the outside.
Fear not, you are not the only one working on new Netronix firmware.
