Ey!! Two hours ago the SDK for MX31 was released ... A bit better

If it would be possible to get 1.6 and 1.7 firmware from openboox it would be a great surprise and I would get happier XD

There isn't a FAQ or compiled user guide for the M90 online yet, and I understand that the Openboox platform is just for the A60.

I just want to know if what I have (using the latest firmware) is as good as it is going to get.
Here is a revised version of firmware 1.5.1:

Could find two new features in this update, merge sketch and embolden glyph. Merge sketch is supposed to merge the scribbles and create a new PDF file, but it does not work at all. Says "Sorry, merging sketch failed. Maybe this book's content is not supported well by our program, you can contact our support for help, thanks!" Embolden glyphs makes the font look funny with a lot of jagged edges.

They have fixed the problem with the display refreshing several times on waking up from standby. I have left it in standby now to see if the battery drain persists.

I haven't detected any problem with fonts. I will revise to look at special letters, as "ñ".

Very buggy. Apparently, they are working on version 1.7 for all devices, including M90: http://translate.google.com/translat...-7-t11134.html

You sure they are working on 1.7 for m90? Someone called Onyx and they responded that M90, M91 were no longer supported and will receive no further firmware updates.

I have not heard mention of it anywhere else, if that is what you mean. But looking through the Russian and Polish forums it looks like they have sold a lot of M90's in those countries, unlike here. Mind you, I do not have statistics to back that up. Also, the 6-inch devices are still stuck at version 1.5.1, and they seem to have bugs too.

I have been reading the Polish forums, and it looks that there is active development. I'm quite happy with my M90 ... This make me be confident ...

I love the M90 too, inspite of the half-assd firmware.
