My silence here on some days in last time is just because I am heavily busy with it, so please don't be frustrated and confused by it.

Next step will be implementing of some advanced settings and GUI optimisation.

It concerns both - M92 and i62 series. They are using same software.
No worries, I had no doubt you guys were at work. Hope Onyx is too, the dictionaries software could sure use some improvements.

I am really looking forward to multitasking. I just bought a I62HD and am really pleased with it. But I do a lot of switching between (opened) books/articles. If there's a way to make that more efficitent, that would be very welcome.

Some issues new owner Firefly

Hi! Just yesterday I got the Onyx Firefly and installed the PDF patches from Booxtor; now the lighting is dimmer and I don't know what to do (tried reset to fabric settings etc.) Firmware version is 1.8.20121228, 4GB int.memory.
Also I was wondering if it is possible to install apps (for ex. library tools) or is there allready something like that on the device (can't find it..)?
Thanks in advance!

Exclamation A suggestion



Might I suggest that we split this thread up into:
  1. A thread for only the updates themselves (stickied); and
  2. A thread for discussion of (actual and/or potential) updates (not stickied)

That way, somebody looking for software updates doesn't have the needle-in-a-haystack task of searching through 20 pages of discussion to find them.

Hi Bezid, welcome to MR!

Your reader already has the latest firmware available. The first post of this thread informs about all updates.

hi

I have the newest firmware on my firefly and I tried to patch the pdf reader. First I tried the newest patch (2013) and i couldn´t open the books I last read (Or to be more precise: I could open but only got a white page and the page number was jumping from 46 to 66 to 77 and so on). Then I tried the older patch in the hope this will fix the problem, because booxtor said that it is a beta, but the problem is the same..
HELP!!

Also I cannot use CoolReader or FBReader on this book, but I had this problem before too (maybe because of drm-protection?)

Edit: The books in question already have some markings with the old pdf-reader. If this helps...

Hi,

just a question, did you install just the onyx_pdf_reader or the libonyx_ui.so too?

Hi
I followed the instructions on the first page.
The first try (newest patch) was only with the 2 files from the zip-file (without libonyx_ui.so).
The second try (older patch) was with libonyx_ui.so, onyx_pdf_reader and update.oar

Edit:
I tried various things now and the new pdf-reader style is working (with the version from 12.12.12) only when I check the option "use old PDF Reader". Then I have bigger Icons and no exit message.
But it cannot read drm protected book! Failure message about wrong drm password setting appear.
With the newest update I have the failures I mentioned earlier.

Any idea?
Or at least a way to restore the normal pdf reader?
I need a specific drm protected book and I don´t have everytime 2 monitors for my laptop...

Well, 4 months and two weeks since last full firmware and 3 months since last pdfreader update ...
Any estimation about next update?
Any improvement for FBReader and Coolreader?

Sssssh. They are working on anything and everything. But asking questions is not appreciated.

Quote from Booxtor (from a relatively long time ago; no news since):
