Upgrade mode on DeVo eVreader found. Hardware?

Hi to all!

I just purchased a DeVo device, which appears by all means to be a clone of the Hanvon n516.
The problem is that, as far as I noticed, it uses a different firmware, which does not start in serial mode when booting and pressing the rotate button. Also notice that what is the rotate button on the n526 is actually a volume- button on my device.

I have the original firmware image: would it help in understanding how to reboot in serial usb mode? I have already tried every button combination when powering the device on, but still no success.



Thanks in advance!

Update: I discovered that while the product's model name is EBK001-DZTEP-V5, it says "Explay TXT.Book" in the Info dialog, and judging by the form factor it should be a TXT.Book.B63. Does anybody have the same model and perhaps more info?

I finally found out how to enter the upgrade mode: keeping the power and menu button pressed and connecting the usb cable shows it as a Samsung CPU device.

It looks like Orsio's firmware can be put on it, but the only place where people seems to try these things is www.the-ebook.org, and Google Translate shows its limits...

This device just looks like Hanvon N516, but it's completly different piece of hardware.

Isn't that what I wrote in the second post? It's an Explay TXT.Book.B63.
What I want to know is if anybody here does have this reader and/or knows something about it's upgradeability.
