How to update M92 Firmware

Could anyone provide a detailled description for what is actually required to update the firmware on the M92? It used to work for me at least two times but it does not work any longer (with the latest update in Booxtor's thread). After showing the "Checking for updates" message, the device just goes about booting as usual. After all, the updates are of little use if they can't be applied.

For what it's worth, the reader appears to at least recognize the card. After it has booted I can browse the SD card on which the device lists the file "update-20130717.zip" as expected.

If the sd card is ok, the zip file could be corrupted (during the download).
Verify the checksum of the file: the MD5 value should be
8f635738bf15f862156d3f2f8d1cc940.
(md5 can be computed using TotalCommander).

BTW, a checksum such as MD5 should be mentioned by Booxtor
because the file being passworded there is no other way to verify
its integrity.

CHeers, the file I downloaded was all right but turns out the file on the SD-Card was not (for the third time, that must be). Now it worked!
