The Elipsa's ID is 387, and it's a kobo8. The codename is europa. The hardware identifier is b300-ntx.

Note that this kfwproxy post was triggered by my scanner, so you won't find it on the Kobo firmware page yet (but I'm adding it right now).

I do not recommend installing this on non-Elipsa devices until I do some research into the firmware.

In addition, the filename version has a "-TF6412" suffix. I don't know what this represents yet, but I'll currently be dropping it from the version shown on the firmware page. Some initial guesses (I'll narrow these down later): a suffix added to prevent my scanner scripts picking it up early (this might be a partly-intentional side-effect of another reason), an additional build number for something other than nickel in the builds (I'll know once I inspect the firmware), an additional build number purely for the initial release (if anyone has an Elipsa, I'd like to know the factory version), or maybe a indicator for a special build of some kind.

Yes, it is Elipsa only. I would not put this on another device unless you know what are doing and are prepared to recover. This is much more likely to need an updated kernel or something that won't be available for the other devices.

And it seems like it makes no sense to install it on other devices, since all updates concern only Elipsa. It makes sense to wait for geek1011 to write about this)

And fyi it seems that at least one person with the device confirms that this WAS the build on his device when it was shipped

I installed it (after removing the drivers) because noticed a lot of new things in the firmware, such as export Notebook to Dropbox, and other innovations...
But alas, this is only for Elipsa, I did not find any changes in the menu.
