Yes, there is a CRAMFS Tools package that can be run in Command Window. I believe this is it.

Thanks! It is so nice to have my clock back! I was waiting for a firmware update so I had the security of going back if things went bad but based on people's success decided to go for it.

If you don't remember where the AM/PM vs 24hr clock conrtrol is, go to the top menu, press Settings, press About, press 0 to toggle the value.

Well I gathered up the nerves and did the flash with the icons, unified menu font and the clock. Thanks gwynevans for the step by step instructions.

As long as you remembered to use the correct file name and the Font Family name you should be safe. But If you use eBookLib to load your books, the fonts in eBookLib and in the Reader must be the same, otherwise you will have page formatting problems.

Wait for an official update. As they are saying: Better to be safe than sorry.

Bet you skipped point 4 - "Check you have a "/tmp" folder in the root of the Reader when viewed as a USB device, (create one if you haven't,) then unmount the reader." :-)

Actually, not so brave. When I wanted a Russified Reader to give as a gift a few months back, I picked up a 505. But being too chicken to reflash it (fearing the brick result, although it would be more of a shingle than a brick!), I cleaned up and flashed my 500 and gave that as a present. (It was in very good condition, with original box and accessories, and it's for my SO anyway so the packaging doesn't even matter!)

I decided to flash the 505 after seeing a few others here do it, mainly because I really missed the clock, and the mixed menu font sizes were a bit annoying. The new icons and Russification are a bonus.

BTW, I also flashed the 'joystick' mod just to have the lower-right button as a page turn option. I noticed that this button does *not* go forward/back by 10 pages when the button is held, unlike the other page turn buttons.
