How to update firmware
1. Could you instruct me how to update firmware (I know where to find RC4 and 800+, but I don't know how to physically proceed: where to copy files, which files I should delete etc). Irex page with update instruction does not exists...I saw
2. Which version whould you recommend? (priority: battery life, then functionality)
Many thanks in advice!!!

Well, its kinda like this .... The 800/1000 and irex in general are 'dead' ... so try searching the mobiread wiki for digital reader software ... also the 800 and 1000 irex forums ... If you come up with anything that is useful, let me know as the 800 I have is not responding to power on/off reboots (it stalls before starting the "spinning" logo) ...dead battery, changed battery, recharged and discharged .. rinse repeat ... and I did follow the reboot/reload directions on these forums

to update the firmware, put the contents of the zip files on the SD card:
it should have a series of *.bin and *.dat files (like boot.bin, kernel.bin etc)
restart the dr800, and it should automatically update...
I put the latest versions here: https://www.wuala.com/wpauli71/iRex%...y=hzy7DBCsMZqH
RC4 is the unofficial one, that has a real "turn off device" feature. After 24 hrs it will turn off completely... this means it must do a complete reboot after that, but it will save the battery

Although I wasn't the one requesting it, I want to thank pauli for posting the firmware files. I just updated my wife's dr800 to rc4 and I am looking forward to the results!

I did the update some time ago and the battery life has improved substantially. Thanks for sharing this update, pauli!
