Hello guys,
I updated the firmware to version 1.8.1 20121113 and I also installed the aggiornarmento PDF reader, before the following UPD. 12.12.12 and after the UPD version 2.1.2013, as indicated by the first post of Booxtor.

How do I see the installed version of the pdf reader?

Now I want to install English-Italian translator, where can I find the link?

No, but you can access the hidden partition using OTFM. Just double tap the ".." element few times and you will be there.

I'd still like to know the answer to this.
Sure, you can edit firmware (for example remove shutdown.png and place your own picture on its place) and then reflash it.

But, much simpler, you can replace this picture using OTFM. Just use long tap or menu and choose Copy/Paste.

\usr\share\gui_shell\images\shutdown.png is used when your device is turned OFF.
\usr\share\system_manager\images\screen_saver*.png - these images are used when your device is in a sleep mode.

All images should have a 758x1024 resolution (for I62HD or I62ML models)

Ok, thanks for your help.

What about the warning? What's so dangerous about replacing the shutdown.png?

I think this is the warning about replacing the Boot image (it used when you are waiting while Onyx is turning ON). I don't know where it is placed (probably on another hidden partition or it can be embeded into some system file), and so, this may be dangerous.

I don't see any danger in Copying/Pasting few images. Just do not do things which you not understand.

Ahh I see, I dont know why but I thought that the boot image was the same as the shutdown image, but yeah you must be right.

Hyperlinks in stardicts in M92 1.8.1 20121113

Hi!
I've installed a host of stardicts in my M92. They work fine, except that when an entry contains a hyperlink, clicking on it doesn't send you to the right entry. Sometimes it seems to send you to the next one, sometimes to a fixed one, sometimes nowhere.
Examples:
Using the Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary, the entry for was contains a link to be. Clicking on be, sends you to bynot to be.
Using Britannica Concise Encyclopaedia, the entry for Byatt, A. S. contains a link to Iris Murdoch. Clicking on it causes no effect.
I've checked these dictionaries with Golden Dictionary in my laptop. Links work ok.
Any suggestions?

Thanks iampiti. Is there a place where you can (un)officially report bugs for the m92 soft to get a fix?

I have a question about the functions before buying the M92. I read somewhere that you can use instant dictionary by pointing to a word with stylus when reading pdf files. Is it possible though to use joystick instead of stylus to search dictionary (like in kindle keyboard)? Since there are new firmwares, I do not know if this function is integrated. I personally prefer not having to use the stylus when reading.

Also, would firmwares of M92 work on the M92S ?

You can't select word with joystick when reading a PDF file. The joystick is programmed for different functions : move the page, zooming, validate, but not select a word.

I suggest that this can be improved in the new firmware. (This is a drawback for me deciding to buy M92 or not)

Hi Booxtor

I guess an Android release is coming isn't it ?
I have been waiting for a while for a new release that would have an all in one file that would include the latest changes in the new PDF reader
Is such a release close or it will take a while since the developers are focusing on the Android firmware?

thanks

Android was canceled/postponed for the M92. Instead, the current firmware will be enhanced.

Hi,

porting of Android has been currently postponed because of some hard to solve issues. Most of work is already done, but the most annoying bottleneck of current version is the power management - the developers can not stop rapid discharging of battery. Even in suspend mode the battery is empty within of 3-4 days. As long as this is not solved it won't be released.
We decided to finish improvement of the current software first and then go back to Android. Unfortunately as a rather small company Onyx lacks on engineers to work in parallel on many tasks.
The first big task is implementation of multitasking. It is already in work for some weeks. Hope be able to present it soon (together with some other fixed issues)
