Smile NEW ALEX FIRMWARE

THE RUSSIAN HISENSE ISSUED A NEW FIRMWARE BACK IN JANUARY. IT HAS FBREADER AS MAIN READER YOU CAN READY MORE FORMATS, ROTATE THE BOOK. Pretty cool Android 1.6.
Just change the language in the settings to English.
I was not happy as the Fbreader has Russian icons. I managed this month to edit the icons to English script so the rom is fully English now. It also features nook style Icons. Also you can install open home 5 which works fine, facebook, stock email and browser on both screens. K9 email works fine on the lcd.
after you install the rom, run the fbreader. will give you a force close after install but works perfect on reboot.
Download the firmware from http://highscreen.org/uploads/Alex/03012011.zip

tried to updload it here but no luck.

just uninstal the original fbreader using titanium backup (you can backup first) than install again. it will install perfectly

it is very simple
1. write the new firmware as per instructions.
2. go and change the language from settings (this is tricky if you do not understand russian, but take an android phone and follow the same steps, little bit like playing blind chess)
3. boot in the recovery than use the root update.zip to update the root.
4. install after the titanium backup.
5. install stericson busybox
6. run titanium backup than remove the fbreader
7. install the new fbreader with english icons I provided. at this stage will forceclose on you.
8. reboot or reset.
9. on start run fbreader. new english Icons will be showing.

It's been impossible for me to diwnload rusian firmware upgrade. ¿Could you please put another link?

It's been a long time since your post, and web have been down, but Alex e-readers are coming lowcost in Spain (near 99€ ;-)

I'll try a direct message to you too. Regards.
