You have to use modified firmware for the flash to be successful. Try reading through this thread:

All of the above options can be changed on the fly from within a book. I'm not sure what the TTS quality of other eBook readers is, but this seems pretty typical as far as computer-robotic reading goes.
Is there any chance you could record a sample of the TTS?

I no longer have use the Chinese firmware. It was pretty much typical computerized reading as far as I can tell... no idea on how it compares to other readers. You could change the rate, tone and voice style.

I am angry we don't have access to the source code. Linux is under the GPL. Legally we can't do anything about it, only the owner of copyrighted work (Linux and whatever else is on it). grrrrrrrrr

I have always assumed that the Libre runs Linux but is there actually proof that it does?

It does. You can extract the firmware, unsquashfs/unencrypt it and see/change the files.

Unhappy Fascinating idea....but....

My poor/tired jetbook rejected the Chinese firmware updates, sadly.

This may be complicated by the fact(s) of this particular JB.
It came with FW 0.33g, which has been upgraded to 0.35a through a very convoluted process and it is NOT a happy JB at all anymore !!!

In sheer desperation to find ANYTHING that works now I searched on -jetbook libre 0.33h- and found:

So you can not downgrade from 0.34 to lower version. but you can downgrade from any higher version to 0.34(coz version/model check is enforced in those versions already).

The bottom line is if your device is 0.33, you have one time choice to choose which line of firmware you wanna follow. otherwise you are binded to current firmware line. The only hope is some one come up with a crack release.
So just for yuks tried flashing DOWN to 0.34b - and it tells me it failed and I should use FW 0.31 or higher !!!
Also worthy of note is that now my FW upgrade messages are in both english and some Asian language...
(Tried 0.34c and got the same exact result ?!)

Anybody have any good clues for me here ???
