I've just tested the new firmware. The adobeviewer is improved indeed, however, it still takes too long (more than a minute) to open an Adobe Digital Editions epub. Is this a bug or s.th. related to the DRM nature of the file?

P.S. Why does the status bar show the epub page numbers and not the screen page numbers?

DRM is something like an encryption. IMHO It is that slow because of the DRM and the "slow" CPU (400 MHz) in the 360.

A quick note about upgrading the firmware and Adobe Digital Editions authorization. Before installing the new firmware I had de-authorized my Pocketbook (Ctrl+Shift+E in Windows, Cmd+Shift+E in Mac - for those interested) and then reauthorized it after upgrading the firmware. However, this is not sufficient. At first I was unable to open any DRM'd epubs on the Pocketbook. After a bit of investigation, I realized that there is a file tucked away in the root directory of the device - /Pocket301/.adobe-digital-editions/device.xml - that is not modified by the firmware upgrade leading to a mismatch between the identity of the device as reported in this file and the expected identity for the ADE authorization.

The solution:

1.) Deauthorize the device.
2.) Delete the directory /Pocket301/.adobe-digital-editions/
3.) Unmount and remount the device (Not sure if this is necessary, but it couldn't hurt)
4.) Re-authorize the device. This should recreate the directory and, more importantly, the file device.xml with the correct firmware information and device identity.
5.) Enjoy reading your fancy DRM'd files.

I hope that this is helpful to some folks.
Cheers.

All ADE devices show "ePub" page numbers. That's the whole point of them - that they provide a device-independent reference. "Page 20" in a particular book on a Pocketbook 360 will be the same as "Page 20" on a Sony Reader or an iRex DR800.

I've made a Spanish translation for the former firmware version. I'd like to update it now that the new FW has come, and as well substitute it for the Spanish official translation which is... seemingly wanting. Is there a way for me to extract the firmware files being in WVista? In the case that couldn't be, could someone post the firmware english version?

Thanks in advance

Hacking time!
Step 1.
install third party application poterm - terminal emulator for PocketBook
Step 2.
Make yourself familiar with the very, very basic Unix commands ls, pwd, cd, cp, df
Code:
ls - list the contents of the directory. If there is no parameter list contents of current directory, otherwise list directory that follows the ls command. Example ls /mnt/ext1
pwd - print (give on screen) name of current directory
cd - change the current directory
cp - copy file. In our case cp * /mnt/ext1 copies all files from current directory to /mnt/ext1 directory (here is mounted what you see as contents of the main memory when you connect PocketBook to the PC)
df - print where various partitions are mounted. I have used this to find out where the "main memory" partition is mounted
Step 3.
Start terminal emulator and enter following commands
Code:
/bin/ash: can't access tty; job control turned off


BusyBox v1.12.2 (2009-01-04 17:45:10 EET) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

$ pwd

I love Guys From Kiev. They strive to make our lives easier. Unlike the vast majority of other device manufacuters.

Step 4.
Connect PocketBook to the computer and copy desired files from the main memory.
The poterm log file is in directory /games - where the poterm.app is located.

Step 5.
Upload zip file with extracted files to Mobileread ;-)

Arigato gozaimaishita!

I wish I knew anything about programming... I would feel less out-of-tune some times. However, one of nicest points of this forum is exactly that: hypercompetent geeks like the designers of Calibre and Sigil and people acquainted to open-source helping the average reader, lay in all or most of those matters, to keep enjoying his or her books. K for you ^^

Thanks for the language files!
I prepared a Bulgarian translation out of them (let's say in a beta state :-) ) There are still some untranslated items.

Here is my new Spanish translation.

The Spanish one brought by the Guys from Kiev was actually shameful, I've seen even traces of English and Cyrillic on it, and the new update is not even covered but they just left the English version

Is there any way that the one here may be used in new shipments?

Are you sure it worked in Adobe Viewer before?
Cause I haven't updated and it doesn't work in Adobe Viewer for me. Never did.
For me, it only works in FBReader.

The firmware upgrade links are not working for me so I went directly to PBGlobal. But they have only the November release 101.14.2

Any suggestions?
