360 plus, 360 plus new and manual

while researching where to buy a 360+, I came across the existence of a 360+ new (model 512), with a firmware dated 29 February: any ideas of what this is, and what is the lastest firmware version?

Also, I could not find a manual in English for the 360+, has anybody got a copy?

Hi Paola,
My fw is 15.4 (17.10.2011)



http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39132661/Use...0_Plus(EN).pdf

EDIT:

I watched a bit and found that
my pb360+ is model 511 with processor FreeScale i.MX35 ARM11 533MHz,
and yet there is a new model 512 with fw 15.6 and processor Freescale 800MHz.

I'm wondering if I could install 15.6 fw on my model???

thanks Nausica - I am not sure whether it is a good idea to put the firmware of the 512 model, just in case it messes up your machine completely: I'd first ask the guys who sold you the device (by the way, where did you get yours?)

I thought about it, and came to your own opinion.
I did not think to try it, just wondered... (I'll wait until someone else does a guinea pig )
I think this difference between the processors, certainly influence the differences between the fw.

I bought mine pb at PocketGoods....... It arrived in 7 days

In the 6" and 9" series the 0X and 1X versions were the same, so I guess 360+ and 512 will be compatible as well, but I can understand you not wanting to be the guinea pig.
I'll try to contact Forkosigan in the german section if it will work.

thanks a lot - just ordered two of them from the Pocketbook site, which is the cheapest, and glad to report that upon registering I also got a €5 discount coupon that I could redeem immediately with the purchase. And thanks to google translate, I managed around German (totally misterious to me ).

pity they only have one colour available, at least I am forced not to be sexist!

I love my little pb to much, to risk breaking it.
Hope that forkosigan knows something about this fw.
Thanks

512(with the 800mhz processor)'s firmware is NOT compatible with 511(with 533mhz processor). Read it here.

To be honest I dont why they still choose Vizplex over Pearl for this hardware upgrade when they are promoting the new 622 with pearl screens. they also need to work on a better product name, i mean are they just gonna name the next version "Pocketbook 360 plus New Improved"?

I've just reveiced my order: arrived really quickly, considering I ordered them on Wednesday night and by Monday they were already here (while I was not ): so, great service from Pocketbook Germany, I have to say!

I am now getting ready to prepare them for my parents, but being a present I'd like to keep them as pristine as possible: the 360+ does not come with a charger, but I could leave the USB cables in their wrappers (plus, I don't want to leave the laptop on all night just to charge the readers, btw) and use the chargers from the 360: does anybody know whether using a charger from the 360 will "fry" the 360+? Perhaps this is a pathetic question, but I am that ignorant!

If they still charge via USB there should be no issue.
I charge my (original) PB360 from my XBOX, PC, Kindle charger, or cellphone booster battery, whatever happens to be handy.

thank you guys - only now I realised that I was not clear anough, what I meant was whether the 360 wall charger is going to fry the 360+: what do you reckon? Sorry for being daft!

For my PB360 PocketBook supplied generic USB charger. Nothing special. Not even bearing PB trademark.

PB360+ can be charged with any generic USB charger of reasonable quality
