Old Cybook / upgrade firmware to ePub

I have an old Cybook Gen3 which I haven't used since the time that there were threads on this forum wondering when the new firmware upgrades would arrive. I don't see a firmware version on the About screen, but the Cybook version number is s3c2440 (400MHz) and I'm pretty sure I had the last available firmware upgrade.

It still works, and I would like to know whether I can still upgrade the firmware so that I can read ePub books on it. Is this possible, and if so, how?

As a bonus would it be possible to change between ePub and mobi firmwares; if it is possible how would I do that?

I've been to the Bookeen website but can't find any information there. I've sent an email to Bookeen, but unless they've improved over the past little while I'm not holding my breath.

Regards, Alex (the possibly returning prodigal)

PS Will the ePub firmware upgrade give me folders?

You can install firmwares 1.5 (mobi and pdf) and 2.0 (epub and pdf) without problems. You can install one or the other as often as you wish, and both will give you folders.

Bookeen's website is kinda broken right now.

Jellby posted the files for 1.5 and 2.0 there if you need them.

Many thanks to you both. I've downloaded both sets of firmware, and now I'm off to get a clean SD card.

Regards, Alex

Thanks again. I've been able to install the 2.0 firmware, and am playing with my new toy.

I have a couple of questions, but will put them into a new thread.

Regards, Alex

Hi there!

It seems that even from the now updated site the files are not available. Would anyone who got them before it broke care to share them?

Thanks

Shev
