Thumbs down Beta 2.0.3 firmware 902 problems

I have installed the beta firmware from the forum, all went well, and there are some rather nice bonuses when using this, the RSS reader is
The show stopper is alas that he now 'forgets' the place in the last read book, it will open the correct book just always on page 1
Kinda funny/confusing if you have as boot img 'last read book' it will show the correct page (think it is a screen shot) and then just when you are happily reading jump back to page 1.. Sigh

Such a shame, hope Pocketbook will fix this soonish, it is a pain when you have many unread books and keep trying to find where the hack you where in the book

Before you ask Yes, i have already done a 'clean slate' and opened diverse books, same problem persists.
Any other suggestions would be VERY welcome!
Maybe even a suggestion at how to get back to previous version, since i rather loose the RSS app and keep my place in the books i read?

The strange and confusing part is that my 902(and 602) would not remember the last page on the 2.0.2 firmware but has every time since i changed to the 2.0.3 new firmware.

But let me ask- are you turning it off or letting it turn off automatically? Im not sure because I cant test it now but it might be that it(and the 602) didnt start remembering until I let the device turn it self off.

I had the same problem to find it here, but OphReader brought me to this... Thanks to him ones again.

Here are the download link:
http://pocketbook-global.com/downloa...ketBook902.zip
--http://www.mobileread.com/forums/private.php?do=showpm&pmid=165309

And here the original thread from the german section (also for the 602 with adownload link):
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=109726&page=3

My question to the admins : Can we make firmware threads to each model of pocketbook sticky, with download link of all working and beta firmwares at the first page ?

Letting it auto-shutdown also results in opening at page 1
I have tried it with several books to make sure it is not related to the book i was reading. Every time the same behaviour.

Strange... I tried it with pdf, txt, rtf, htm. And every time opened on the right last page. But i have similar problem with taking notes and opening them. When i try to open a note, it always opens the book on the first page.

Thanks for the link to the firmware, now can somebody please tell me how to install the upgrade? I found instructions for the 360, but not the 902.
