It only shows 'recently read' books that are stored on internal memory; mine are all (>1000 titles) on sd. I have to remember my last read title and search the book in the folder explorer each time I start up my pocketbook for reading. Hope there will be a solution for this.

Calibre doesn't recognize the 626 anymore, not even as Android.
Calibre deosn't reliable identifies Books already on the machine, if transferred again, they show up as on the pocketbook, after the checkmark is gone after the next calibre startup. Very dissapointing ...

The horrible 'collections' have made their entry. So far there is still the option to search by folders (one of my main reasons for using Pocketbook). Collections just don't do the job when you have over 10 of them and you can't subcollect (like in a folder tree structure).
Non removable Shop and Internet shortcuts on home screen. I don't use my reader for online anything and I don't 'shop' directly from these extremely slow and frickle devices where internet is concerned.

But I do like the new look! Hope there will be an important upgrade soon (remembering and showing my read books from sd-card).

To me the interface is a sort of Kobo look-a-like which doesn't have to be a bad thing.

But it's targeted at novice users and specific PocketBook goodies are lost; for instance the 'open with' functionality, just 3 line spacing and margin options and last but not least the lost of alternative readers.

Also count in some little bugs (adbosch: history ebooks sd-card and showing all fonts of a font-family).

I went back to FW4.4 and Cool Reader...

BTW. Am I the only one who's using Sergey's version of Cool Reader as I find the interface superior to the other one...

I might go back to FW4.4 too. Is this process exactly the same as upgrading?

Yes, same procedure: place firmware file in root ereader, shutdown ereader, hold up - and down button and power on the ereader.

If I cannot get Cool Reader to run on it the new firmware has no value to me.
