Thanks for posting this. After failing to upgrade my Note pro using the Onyx Boox instructions, I followed your advice and uninstalled the first driver (the original installer offers an uninstall function). After doing this the process completed as per the original instructions.

After the original flashing to Android 9 there was an additional update that installed via the in-built update routine. All now working well on Android 9 and it feels a bit smoother and more polished than the original Android 6 build.

Yes, they share a Google drive link with you.You can refill the form and generate the link again. I downloaded everything to my local drive, but it is also still there in my Google drive as a shared directory, iirc.

I also got the USB switch failure when updating a Note Pro. Uninstalling the first driver (driver assistant) then reinstalling the actual driver (zadig-2.5) worked for me too. I also removed all other usb peripherals other than the Note Pro

Only thing Ive noticed is the touch sensitivity has gone up maybe. I touch the screen to move forward and a lot of times it hits two pages forward. Not sure how to fix this.

Notes

Does anyone run still into trouble with notes, nowadays? Or is that thoroughly a thing of the past?

The Plunge: Some Highlights

Today I've taken the plunge, too.

Notes on backup
- Everything is wiped after the upgrade. Everything!!!
- The notes can be save to the cloud using a Onyx Book account. I gave my email and received a verification code, then I could do a backup. The same process for restore.
- I've done a local backup, which ends up in the directory local storage>note>backup.
- I've manually exported each handwritten note with the settings all pages and to pdf. They end up in in the directory local storage>note>NameOfNote. Remember there is also a tab with notes attached to documents.
- I've manually exported all annotations, both text and scribbles. Howto: 1) When you go to Reading Statistics>Annotations&highlights you get the list of _all_ your books with notes&highlights. 2) Click on it to go to the entries, 3) click on an entry to open the book, 4) Open menu. 5) Open Contents/bookmarks tab 6)Click on ...-subtab, select all in the lowest box, click export for text export, 7) Click Scribble-subtab, select all in the lowest box, click export for a pdf with all your scribbles, highlights and annotations. Rinse and repeat for all books.
-Finally, I've backed up the entire internal storage directory to PC.

Notes on flashing
- The DriverAssistant is for uninstalling previous Rockchip drivers. That's why some people find that uninstalling it after installing it works. However, just using it to uninstall a possibly present previous driver is enough.
- There is a new Zadig driver 2.6. It works, too.
- Remember to run Updater.exe with administrator rights.

Notes on restoring
- First upgrade to firmware 3.1, because Android 9 post-flash is still at 3.0.
- Restoring works for the notes. However, the annotations and highlights are part of the reader statistics and are lost entirely.
- Apparently, the full backup was only partially succesfull. Luckely, I do have most of that data, only spread around on my NAS. More work.

So, folks I'm thinking to upgrade my Nova Pro to Android 9.

Is the only route to flash the ROM using a desktop utility tool? If so, do I need a Windows machine to do so? (I run mostly Macs).

Hm, I think for the meantime I will just stick with firmware 3.1 on Android 6. I cannot see many advantages for my usage with an Android 9 flash. If Boox provide future firmware upgrades on Android 9 for the "Pro" line, and the Android 6 firmware is stranded, then I'll reconsider.
