Firmware update released for the Onyx Boox 60

Last week Onyx released a new firmware for the Boox 60. The improvements include:
  • Migrate to ADOBE RM 9.1
  • Add password support PDF
  • OTA support to enable user to purchase books from online shop
  • Notes support
  • Shortcut support
  • More text encoding support to reflowable content like plain text, mobi
  • More text size support
  • Clock support
  • Bookmark support to web browser
  • Wi-Fi deadlock issue during standby
  • https support
  • Add GPL declaration to about information
  • Fix reboot issue
  • Some small GUI bugs fixed

The second one is a biggie. So far as I know, no other device developer has implemented that part of Adobe RM. You can download the update from here:

Nate I believe the Brother reader does password protected PDFs. But thats a bit more dollars. As far as I know this is the only one under $400.

Fixing that wifi bug and web bookmarks is nice too.

It does passwords, yes. But password protected PDFs? I don't think it does.

But you raised a good point. I was referring to Adobe RM, not all devices.

I updated my post so it says Adobe RM. The statement doesn't apply to the Iliad.

The Hanlins can do password protected PDFs. However, this might only work with XPDF (i.e. not Adobe Digital Editions).

It would be bigger news if Onyx added passworded ePub, i.e. B&N ePubs, which is part of RMSDK 9.1. It is impressive to get any kind of 9.1 port out the door this soon after its formal release though.

Adobe has released an update to the Reader Mobile SDK, the software development kit that enables third-party developers to support PDF, EPUB and Adobe Content Server 4 protected documents on reading devices and in smartphone applications. Version 9.1 delivers improvements in performance and rendering, in addition to supporting password-protected PDF files. It simplifies the workflow for authenticating devices with Adobe Digital Editions. The Enhanced Reader Mobile SDK also supports password-protected EPUB files, including EPUB content sold by the Barnes & Noble eBookstore. For more information, please visit the Reader Mobile Developer Center.

If you don't already know. Onyx Boox is one of the first if not the first to use Adobe 9.1 with OTA.

Also due to some ebooks not being able to be opened and some other smaller issues after updating to 1.2, Onyx has released 1.2.1.

I don't think so. ADOBE RM 9.1 includes support for ePubs from B&N, but not eReader ebooks (which is what you get in a B&N .pdb). It isn't clear if Oynx actually added B&N ePub support, but it is available in ADOBE RM 9.1.

At present, the only way to get B&N ePubs appears to be to download them within the Windows B&N Reader, see Nook, B&N, ePub and PDB formats.

Sorry, should have clarified that Onyx Boox has been out before B&N Nook with Adobe 9.1 with OTA. Sometimes I forget that many people in the US has not heard of Onyx.

You should also mention that unlike the Nook, the Boox has a stable and relatively bug free implementation of Adobe 9.1.

But the last release of the onyx includes the Adobe 9.1 with OTA. So the problem is with the format or with the drm?.

Apart from that, does anyone know any good online library to purchase books?. I'm interested in english and spanish books.
