The above link does not work...I took this one from the general firmware update thread (seems the folder path is incomplete)

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23593310/Up...e-20120626.zip

Can you describe the changes/enhancements for this version? Thanks

Updating is similar like M92:

Firmware Updating:

- Copy the file to a sd card and put it into your device
- Just for case if your battery is not charged properly connect the reader to the wall charger (or USB Port of your PC)
- switch off the reader
- hold the HOME button pressed and switch on the device.
Wait approx. 10 minutes till the device restarts


The release notes will be published later

Thanks for the update of i62HD. The device is really great but there are still some minor annoyances:

I noticed that some icon labels have an unwanted line break in some localizations. So, some two line labels become a three line label, now. The third line is nearly unreadable because it reaches out of the icon spaces.
I am not shure, if it was the same way before, I just mentioned it.

Also some dictionaries crashes immediatly, now. They work in the last firmware. Now, only the original built-in dictionary works flawlessly.

Unfortunately, CoolReader has serious problem with several epubs. CoolReader crashes suddenly when it tries to open an epub. When it opens an ePub it has some problems with special characters, which FBReader opens just fine. But FBReader show other problems like inconstitent page numeration and has some other features missing, I like on CoolReader and vice versa.

Even if the above might sound so bad: It isn't. The device is still beautiful and I hope to give some feedback will improve future versions of the firmware.

Many thanks,
Frank

Thank you very much for emphasizing of this issues!
Could you please provide me the dictionaries and epubs with problems (if they are not under copy rights). We have to test them to figure either the problem is in the software or in the files and try to avoid crashes in the future.
We will also shorten and optimize the icon labels if you can tell me localisation and menu points.

The software will be definitely improved.

Other thing must be added is hyphenation for CoolReader, at least a standard way to disable it, but it will be a great option to be able to enable other languages than current hardcoded one.

I do not know how FBReader detects book language and applies hyphenation, but CoolReader could do the same.

Other i62HD problem is it does not like MAC OS X Lion (and possibly other OS X versions). It shows strange behavior once disconnected. MAC says it hasn't been able to successfully unmount disks (when you mount Boox with SD inserted, you get two mounted disks and once you order dismount one, Boox dismount both and MAC complains).

Thanks for your feedback.
I tried the dictionaries from the M92 thread:
http://abloz.com/huzheng/stardict-dic/
especially from this page:
http://abloz.com/huzheng/stardict-dic/freedict.de/
I downloaded the German-English and English-German
After that I unzipped the packed .dict-files, too, like it is described in the M92 thread.

The epubs are DRM-protected, so I can not send them to you, I am sorry about that. But they are about 1.5 to 3 MB in size with some pictures in it, which is larger than most other eBooks I already tried. Hope that helps.

The long item labels are visible in the german localization. It happen in the popup dialog boxes, e.g. open a .doc-file -> Notizen -> Notizen zusammenführen.
I forgot to mention that I have set the default font in the general settings to Myriad Pro which is nicely readable in the GUI. With this font it also happens in some of the popup entries that are some weird word wrapping occurs.

Many thanks for taking care.

@rfog:
On my Mac with Lion the i62HD behaves like any other USB flash drive. Absolutely no different when connecting or disconnecting. What you can try is to wait a little longer pulling out the UBS cable after disconnecting. Maybe there is Spotlight still writing some indexing stuff on the "drive". Also, make shure that the i62HD is disabled in the Spotlight privacy under the system settings on you Mac. Hopefully that helps.

Frank

Another little typo which I mentioned today: The german translation of "encoding" is shown as "Verschlüsselung". This is wrong. "Verschlüsselung" is similar to encryption.
The correct translation of "encoding" in this usage should be "Kodierung".

Cheers,
Frank
