Astak firmware needed - if legal

I'm getting ready to flash the lbook firmware - v5 - and need the Astak for backup in case I don't like v5, or if disaster strikes.

I apparently deleted all my earlier, older versions. They are no longer available from Astak. The various searches I've done turn up nothing.

I'm not sure I have what you need. I've got several of the the older pocketPro V5 firmware versions.

that's probably a different model though.

Any stable, but later, version. (I have the Pocket Pro, which I neglected to mention in my first post.)

Do you recall the differences between the two versions you list?

I no longer have the Pocket Pro - I got it in the initial release and do not have the ORIGINAL firmward, but have three version of the firmware that were released in 2009:

V5setup.090907.astak.rar
v5setup.12122009.rar
and
V5setup.astak.09102009

I believe the 12/12/2009 was the final version I had on it before I sold it.

I'd be glad to email or upload any or all of these for you.

If you look at the stickies there is a firmware version thread. Looked after quite well and lists the version of particars in the firmware and also features etc.

From memory the dec 2009 firmware was the last real stable version. After that they had a march release that was buggy and the april which apparently fixed things but still didn't work as well as the dec 09 version. I have Bern using lbook and haven't looked back.

No idea. Sorry.
I have not found my Dec 09 copy (it is someplace safe ), but I remember the problems with a 2010 release.

I use Lbook, the only problem I have is it seems to lock up after switching between a dozen or so books. I use the Reset button and don't even have to reset the clock.

Dr D..

I still have all the versions for the V5 PEZ archived. If you want, I can send you whichever you want.

Check my sticky for the pros and cons.

I think, then, that the Dec. 2009 version is the one I would like to have.

Let me say "Thank you" to everyone who has responded. It's very kind to volunteer to send this to me, although it will probably take forever to upload it.

Again, "thank you" to all the members who have responded to this thread.

Dec 09....

I tried,

the 8.rar is 106,577 kb, and the V5bin is 130,048 kb, which, after I did my math, is larger than the 1 meg for bins and 20 megs for .rar that are allowed.

Any suggestions.....

I'm not sure my email will send that size.

got to go right now, will check back later.

AJ

Another possibility is to get the latest firmware from BeBook:

http://mybebook.com/a28/BeBook%20Min...icle_info.html

I confess that I am still using the Dec 1 2009 firmware myself... I haven't checked the bebook forums for problems.

If I can find my Dec 2009 firmware I can post it on my website and PM the address - no promises though.

When I ran BeBook FW it ran fine.
IIRC The 'feature set' was different. No TTS


To those running into sending file size limits. WNRAR (and others) has an option to split files into chunks of 'X 'size.
Opening any 'part' at the receiving end auto-reassembles the whole (if all parts are available) original file

If you are willing to give up TTS you can download the latest version directly from Jinke. They are all the same firmware but some have different features. I believe the lBook version does include TTS, last time I loaded one. The ADE and most other features of lBook are the same. They have modified the handling of the open book function and changed the association of files to use Cool Reader and they have a modified Cool Reader.
