Database and SD Card Images for 1.8

Dear MRers,
We have a brand new, clean database for those of you who have upgraded to 1.8 and either a) are having problems post upgrade, or b) want dictionary functionality in the pre-loaded books (as this will upgrade your books to our new format, which the firmware update will not)

The steps for installing this update (as well as the caveats) are the same as in the sticky posted in this forum, except that the download link is different.

You can get it here:
http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...tabase-1.8.zip

For those of you who are more Linux savvy, or want to follow timlegge's instructions on creating SD cards, we have a link to the SD card image for this software as well.

You can download this from here:
http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...estore-1.8.tgz

This will literally reformat your device, so make sure you have anything you want off the device first.

I hope this helps with your 1.8 experience.

JC, did the release notes for the 1.8 firmware appear anywhere. I'm planning on upgrading but tossing up whether to finish the book I'm reading first (as well as a heap of Calibre "magazines") or just jump ahead. There were a few "hypothesised" upgrades that would get me to do it tonight, but just wondering whether they were implemented.

Got the sd card image. Thanks. Since 1.4 works like a charm,
I will consider upgrade at some period when I feel boring and
ready for adventure.

Thanks for providing us Linux users with SD images we can use to upgrade our devices.

The directions for updating both the firmware and the DB worked flawlessly.

Thanks again.

Please note: when you are installing a new database, in 1.8 you will replace 3 things: the entire images directory, kepub directory, and database. this is different than 1.4 which did not have a kepub directory.

Hm! The link to sd card image is obviously there and the file itself is
150+ mb. I read people asking when the image would be available.
Why the image has to be geographically specific? At least, has some-
one used posted file to upgrade?
