Good to have your company, BKelley. I think you'd do well to post your specific question in one of the dedicated sub forums here. Luck and best wishes. Neil

Welcome

Which Model EzReader?
Note the firmware is not interchangeable between models.
There is firmware for other branding of the Hanlin V3 or V5 based units.
Lbook and BeBook are some

Please I need help.

I have the firmware 090907 - EZ reader pocket pro 5.

It lacks many features.

Since the new firmware is not posted anymore on their site - what are my options?
Hanlin, BeBook? Would it work?
And in case I have to rollback, still need the old firmware download file.
Or could I save a backup before trying another firmware?

Try the Lbook firmware. It doesn't have TTS but I really like it since I switched to it a few months ago.

Thank you

That's what I did, too - figured it out after a little Net travel.
I can live w/out TTS, but on the Lbook site an older 2010 FW update for V5 includes TTS as a new feature.
It seems they've got rid of it in later updates, strangely
