Unhappy How does it work*?



Well, I already ask for help some months ago, and had some good answers but my problem remained. I give up and said to myself that, well nothing can be done. But no, I’m stubborn and I do want to read epub on my Hanvon N516 and I will.

So what’s the problem ?
I’m in China where I bought a N516, though I wanted a Hanlin V3, big mistake. It’s all in Chinese, ok, no big deal, but the firmware sucks big and I want to change it to OpenInkpot.
I followed the Installation guide but Windows (not mine, I’m on Ubuntu) can’t detect it. I tried on two computers.

# Connect the device via USB.
Ok

# Push the 'Rotate' button and power on the device.
What does that mean anyway ? I pushed it, pressed it, push up and down, two seconds, two minutes, pressed before after in the same time as the power on button, with a previous reset, and then :

# New device will appear in your system, point to this directory for driver.
No. Nothing appeared. Two times two hours trying that and nothing appeared.

Where am I wrong ?



For information, my N516 have this firmware : N516标准版 升级包V24210
and I used these files to do the upgrades : flash.cramfs, flash.cramfs.md5.

That mean: push and hold the 'Rotate' button and then press power button rapidly (you can also press reset button instead of power button). Then release the 'Rotate' button.

Hm. I don't know about devices using .cramfs uprade files. Either flashing OI or flashing original firmware back might brick such a device. I do not recommend you trying that.

Thanks. I will not try it so. I think that the first version of the N516 were using it and that Hanvon quickly changed it to what is it today.

I will keep reading PDF and wait for an update.

There is an original firmware with epub support:
http://www.hanvon.com/de/download/Eb..._2.2.7.2.0.rar

But it is not the .cramfs update. Try asking Hanvon if it is possible to install this update on your device.
