1.5 firmware with Opus?

Hi. As my son broke the screen of my Cybook Gen 3, I've been thinking about replacing it with a cheaper and smaller device, like the Opus, instead of repairing the screen.
However, all my dictionaries and e-books are in Mobipocket format, and I really loved the upgrade with folder view as well...
So, a stupid question: Will I be able to upgrade the Opus to use the Mobipocket firmware or is it just a future possibility that Bookeen mentions? And will it work as well with the Opus as it did for my beloved Gen 3?
Sorry if this has already been answered in another thread, I'd just like to be sure of my facts before deciding.

Yes, you can install the v1.5 firmware on the Opus. Both the 1.5 and the 2.0 firmware work on both the Gen3 and Opus.

Hi again. I'm trying to download the upgrade from Bookeen, but the link doesn't seem to work. Any ideas on where to find the upgrade?
(It's been one of those days... the courier couldn't find my house, either...)

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be a firefox issue, as I get the same result with the internet explorer. Well, perhaps I'll just let my computer sleep on it and maybe tomorrow all will be miraculously resolved. (ha)

There is an issue with firefox (last version) and the menu. And yes, the link for download are broken too.
Today is no working day for most people in france, so i guess that will have to wait until Monday at best.

Upgrading

Hi everyone!
I've decided to come out of Lurk-land (where I've been very happy for the last 2 years!) because I've been trying to upgrade to Version 2.0 for the last few days with the same results, and no answer (yet) to my email from Bookeen... I won't say I'm happy I'm not the only one but... you know what I mean! I can't wait to read epub files.

But that's normal. You can't access to download page unless you're signed at their page. It has worked always in that way.
