Hi seaniko7,

I appreciate if you could help me with a PM for those passwords? Or at least, what's the sub-project to look for under github? Thanks a lot.

The same thing happened to me - when I've switched from Artatech to Booxtor firmware via the mfgtool/recovery method. But after power cycling the device one more time, the stylus became fully functional.

In any case, if you wish to switch back, please see this post - very useful info from a nice guy named Klastes:

Ivona is the best tts software in the world (now bought by amazon).
In artatech soft I've used polish, german and english ivona - almost natural human voice.
Additional voices for m92 you can buy:

Kool. Any hope for an Ivona Romanian voice package (Carmen)?
I know it exists - contacted the folks @ Ivona and it's available at least for windows platforms. But they couldn't tell anything about the Linux/Artatech platform (hinted that they are selling their package to Artatech in the form of a business SDK / API).

Ivona Carmen is available (free for the moment, being beta) for Android,
so hopefully soon for M92 (or at least M96).
I used it on a tablet and it's quite nice. Unfortunately many romanian texts are typed without diacritics and the pronunciation is awful in this case.

Yes, I forgot to mention that Ivona Carmen is (freely) available for Android - being part of the beta program. It's very interesting that the names of the binary files seem to follow the same naming convention as in the Linux/Onyx platform (i.e. libvoice_ro_carmen.so)

Would the Android binaries be compatible with the plain/Linux version?
Android is a Linux flavour after all, and the hardware platform is the same (ARM).

The Carmen voice sounds awesome - based on what I was able to try via Ivona's web demo.

Thank you for your feedback on this.

Hi, Booxtor!
Maybe, your son grew up to a Man now.
I have a stupid question.
The updatefile 'UPD 20131204.ZIP' can be applied to the M92 black edition,
and how about to the M92 black 'pearl' edition?

With that tool you can also replace standard screen saver pictures in \usr\share\system_manager\images

Here you can pick some ready to use images from my collection http://www.flickr.com/photos/booxtor

New screen_saver images must be renamed to screen_saver0.png, screen_saver1.png, screen_saver2.png, ..., screen_saver9.png. (no more than 10 images at once). May be it works with more than 10 pictures, but I did not figure out how.
Hi all,

I would like to change my screen saver images on my M92 and I would like to know if the procedure reported here is still valid with the latest firmware (i.e., 2013.12.04).

If this is the case, installation should proceed as follows:

1. copy the otfm dir to the root of the sd card;
2. inside this dir, click install_sys_progs.oar;
3. restart the reader.

Right?

TIA

I think, it works. But, you should copy otfm dir to the root of internal flash memory (where you copy books, etc.) Maybe that SD card also works...

And it works with more than 10 pictures. I have several dozens. Just continue with ...10.png ...

Mono, I thank you for your reply but if I am not sure that it will work I will not dare to install it...

It would be nice to have a reply from Boxtor, who developed the firmware, but I understand that he is too busy.
