I had the same "issue" and was worried for a few moments until I found the "hide books" thingy...very strange.

Well, so far so good.

2 hours solid reading with no crash, bomb or even general flakiness.

I'm not sure but it does seem that page turns take longer. Well, not the turn itself, but the time between pushing "next" and anything happening. Its not instant and there is a definate lag.

Still, IT WORKS!!!!!!

Thanks guys. You rock.

Glad to hear it, I'll try and get a file together today containing all the files you need to carry out the conversion, and I'll compile the method that we seem to have perfected

I'll give you the tour if you like:

1.) Download the file Delphidb attached to his post
2.) Extract it to a folder somehwere.
You will find two subfolders, one containing the Cybook firmware, the other containing the Netronix firmware
3.) Copy all files from the Cybook firmware to the root of an empty SD card, put it in the STAReBOOK (or other OEM device) and start it.
With the STAReBOOK you don't have to do anything, with some of the other devices you have to hold doen the center key whily it boots.
4.) The flashing process should now start. Once it finishes successfully you will probably get a checkerboard screen and a non-responding device.

Don't worry, this is normal...

5.) Attach your STAReBOOK to your Computer as usual and you will see the internal memory and SD card just like normal even if you can't see anyting on the eink display apart from the checkerboard.

6.) Now you need to create a folder named "System" in the internal memory of the STAReBOOK and put a file into it that was originally up on Openinkpot but is now also gone. I'll put it up at the end of this post. After you have copied this files into the system folder in the internal memory of the STAReBOOK (I'll upload the whole Deal I got from OpenInkpot, there are some fonts included as well) you restart the device and should now have a fully working Cybook Gen3

Let me know whether it worked smoothly and if you run into problems let me know. You can always flash back to the STAReBOOK firmware or the Netronix one included in the file Delphidb provided, the bootloader works even if something else goes wrong.
Oh, and you will have to delete the fontcache file in the system folder to be able to use all the fonts. This seems to be a cybook issue.
Will this work on Astak Mentor Lite (a EB600 device)?

I'm sorry, but I really can't say. If the hardware is the same as the Cybook or the STAReBook, then your chances are quite good, if it's a newer and/or different hardware then you're out of luck. I don't know much about the Astak Mentor, from the picture I just found it looks like the STAReBOOK, so it might just work.
Use at your own risk though...
I'm not sure if the files are even still out there though...if you can't find them on the net then send a PN and I'll search my archives, can't promis I still have it though...^^

I tried but it did not work. It stopped at step 4. The flashing never begins nor finishing.
I suspect that STAReBOOK is a EB100 device whereas Astak Mentor is a EB600. The controller is different as suggest by http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/EB-600.
Thank you for your advice anyway.

delphidb96,
CommanderROR,

Thanks a lot for your posts, this solution worked for my old reader just perfectly! However, I failed to upgrade the Cybook software anymore (has tried v1.5 and v2.1). Has any of you guys managed to? I would appreciate learning the secret. Thanks!

Hi guys, I have a stk101 which I updated the firmware to Cybook gen 3 1.1 build 685.

Has anybody managed to get the cybook update to version 1.6 or 2.1? I cant seem to get it to work.

Please share the secret lol!

This is likely the newest version you will ever get to work on the STAReBOOK. It is of course possible to "port" other firmware version, but you would need somebody to modify the Bookeen firmware so that it is accepted by the STAReBOOK. That kind of stuff is beyond my capabilities and I doublt any dev is going to invest all the time and effort for a pretty much dead platform like the STAReBOOK...
