IMPORTANT !! Don't use the old firmware with the new Opus !

Very important message: I've heard from Michaël Dahan (of Bookeen) that the reason the firmware updates are not currently available on the site is that the old versions (1.5 Build 1093 & 2.0 Build 1094) are NOT COMPATIBLE with the new colour Opus, and can brick the device, because the new Opus is not using the same hardware as the old Opus.

So please DO NOT INSTALL THE 1.5 OR 2.0 FIRMWARE ON YOUR COLOR OPUS !!!

A NEW firmware update which will be compatible with ALL Opus models will be available on Bookeen's site in the very near future.

Why would someone want to downgrade their new Opus?

Well, switching to 1.5 to read mobi, for one.
Or need to re-install (that shoudn't happen).

good question... i can only imagine someone who wants to stick with mobipocket firmware might try to do that without waiting for the new firmware.

Would someone be so kind to post the old firmware anyway? I recently bought the white opus, but it has the super-old firmware, so that it can't display Polish fonts correctly

On Monday? By the way, thanks by the warning. A friend of mine is buying an Opus, but I don't know if it's the white one, and she intends to use it for Mobipocket.

Thank you! I just got a new opus, I like it very much -- but I *am* looking forward to switching to mobi format again. If I understand correctly, one can use bookmarks with that format.
Anyone knows if the new firmware will enable bookmarking with epub format?

please be sure to tell her to be careful ; a white opus can be v1 OR v2 !! she should check the version of the firmware installed when she buys it, before trying to do any install. or, to be safe, she can just wait for the new firmware ; that one will work on all Opus.

Nope, no bookmarks or multi-level TOC's (assuming you mean the v.2 that the new ones have and not some future version).

I'll look at it but there will be a small problem with that solution. She has bought Opus because she can use it with Mobipocket, she doesn't have to do any different of she did with her Palm, a small detail that people usually forget when they say you must move to ePub because it's the best thing after the chocolate.

thanks (and thanks for the welcome .
Well, I hope there will be bookmarks in future versions... in the meantime, it's still a nice reader, my first (blackberry and PDA before).
