It was a bug (or a feature) related with many-lines centred titles in lrf: the line's justification instead of the centring. Is it fixed?

How about modified /opt partition? Does the update overwrite it?

So they've broken rss2book? I don't want to upgrade yet then (perhaps never...). If it wasn't for rss2book I wouldn't even bother with the reader.

Heh, I think they mean display artifacts (which are white in color and linear in shape) that appear on the screen when the MP3 player is running, stxopher.

So you got your device working again? I was really worried for a moment that you bricked it ...

Here is some interesting news... the "PRS-500 Updater 1.0.02.01300.exe" executable turns out to be a winzip archive and can be easily unpacked (for instance by adding the .zip extension to it and unpacking it with Winrar). The content:

It's pretty easy to extract the content of cramfs.Fsk.img and cramfs.Rootfs.img (see attached files). Likewise, it would probably be easy to replace the images with our own images, meaning that this way we could also flash anything we want to the Reader. The checksum file would have to be adjusted, or, if we couldn't find out the checksum algorithm used, the flash executable would have to be patched to ignore wrong checksums.

Ahhh, that makes more sense. I had no idea since it was something that (oddly enough) never went wrong on my unit. Odd since I use it a lot for listening to recorded lectures and classes (but not when reading). Danka.

Excellent! This is a good start. Put a partial complete on my request for the update status to be more obvious.

Could be my imagination, but the page turn/ refresh on the device seems a little faster... Maybe I've had too much coffee today.

If it's not a bit faster, then I guess I've had too much coffee too ... and I don't drink coffee.
