How to Download

Download the upgrade file by clicking on the "Download" button.
Extract the content of the downloaded zip file.
You should get a file “update_kernel”; this is the firmware upgrade utility.
Copy the file “update_kernel” to the root of an SD card.

How to Install

Make sure your Cybook has enough power to operate.
Switch off your device.
Insert the card into your Cybook.
Switch on your device.
When the boot image is visible (Cybook & Bookeen logotypes), press the “Enter” key and keep it pressed for a few seconds until the screen flashes.
When the screen flashes, you can depress the key; the upgrade process is launched.
Only the needed sections are updated. The upgrade should complete after a couple of minutes.
When the upgrade is completed, the Cybook starts normally.
Delete the file “update_kernel” from the SD card and from your computer. This file will not be useful anymore.
Congratulations! Your Cybook has been upgraded with software version 1.1.

What's Next

New directory view.
Improved Mobipocket, PDF, HTML & TXT support.
New user interface features.
User interface translations.
