Hi! I've just updated my device to 1.8.20121113 from 1.8 20121101. The good news is that the new PDF reader now actually works. The bad news is that it doesn't work on most files I'm interested in. Take, for instance the FreeBSD Handbook:

ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/do...ooks/handbook/

It just hangs at some point. The old reader opens the file, but throws errors all the time. Is this thread the right one to report this problem? If not, could you please point me into the right direction? Thanks!

I guess it has to do something with number of documents.

I have many and the circle is there for a minute or two. Generaly, I do not mind it, because I do not switch it off. I use in most cases sleep mode.

It is for sure in 1st release of 1.8, but I think it started with later (cca post June) 1.7 releases.

I tried it and it only works partially. I set auto crop in the reading menu and page turn in the key mapping menu. The joystick first moves the page up, showing me the bottom margin, and only on the second press it actually turns the page. The page turning buttons work properly. Am I doing something wrong?

Question: In the new pdf reader, there are seemingly random dotted lines across the text. How do I get rid of these?

Onyx Boox M92 Firmware question

Hi, absolute newbie here.

A have two questions about firmware:
1. According to the official EU Onyx Boox site "Firmware varies depending on M92 edition and also on country zones, so if you decide to update your device make sure you install the right firmware!!!"
The new firmwares liked here (by Booxtor) works for which edition / country zone?
2. Back to the official site again. The latest firmware there is from September. Is it because the ones linked here are too beta / not official or simply because they are lazy to update their site?

Cheers.

It's not the offical website. Look at the disclaimer.

Okay, it's just an "R&D and software development partner and official distributor" then. :)
Nevertheless, my questions still stand.

OK. There are at least 3 different channels for euroatlantic region. Booxstor (Germany), Artatech (Polland) and Russian one.

Firmware from Booxstor is also offitial. It can be installed in devices from his channel and most probably also from Russian channel, but for sure it is not possible to Artatech channel devices. For Russian devices there might be a problém that some configurations are without sound output And maybe even without pen support. On those devices the instalation was not possible. Maybe it changed later on or there is a hack to do it.

Artatech firmware is not possible to install on devices from other channels. Maybe there is a hack to do it, bit normally it shouldn't be possible. Tis firmware seems to be based on Booxstor's, but if it will be li ke that forewer I am not sure. They do not seem to contribute to common development of firmware, they have features, that could be in other firmwares, but are not. Cloud storage for example. Artatech firmware is released much Les frequently than Booxstor's.

Russian firmware, I do not know.

Back to your problem. Did you try to restart your device? Was the installation of update successful? You can also try to recalibrate the stylus (in device settings).

Hi booxter

I 've tested the "book.pdf.zip" : 1120 pages ! I've some troubles with it too. I must wait few minutes before stroke a key. I can turn the page 1,2,3, but at the page 4 : blank page and nothing. I can exit the PDFreader with the exit menu key.

Split the document, extract 100 pages or so around the page where it sticks
Upload the new document (100pages) and see if it stops at the same page, then you know it is the document
If it doesn't then the doc might be just too big

Russian firmware, I do not know.
As an owner of Russian device (M92M Perseus, pen, no audio) I can tell that Booxtor's firmware fits pretty well. I've encountered no problem apart from repoted in this thread. Sure, I've got shortcuts for software that cannot possibly work, I've just never touched them. Frankly speaking, I'm more interested in getting rid of them, than in discovering my device's reaction to an attempt to run music player.

Hello,
I'm pleased that the firmware of M92 becomes better and better
But since version 1.8 the reader asks me the following question when I'm trying to close a book:
Quote:
"This book will be closed. Are you sure?"
I'm always sure what I'm doing. How can I disable that qestion?

Thank You!

This upsets me too. Perhaps it is possible to leave this behaviour as it is when user closes the book by pressing "cancel" button (this eliminates accidental closing of books) - and remove it when book is closed from menu (little chance to close the book accidentally in this way)
