Android 4.4 for Kepler Pro?

The eReader online store (the one associated with Booxtor) is offering the Kepler Pro. In the description of the Kepler Pro, it is said that an upgrade to 4.4 "is possible". This line does not appear in the description of the C67ML Carta 2+.

Is Onyx doing an official upgrade to 4.4 for the Kepler Pro? Or will this be like one of the unofficial upgrades for other devices already on the eReader site?

Hi,

don't worry. Upgrade to 4.4 for Kepler is available too. I am just testing it before release. I am going to upload it within of the next 2-3 days

Thanks, Booxtor!

I don't currently have a Kepler Pro. However some of its specs are tempting (the 1GB of RAM, the 16GB of internal storage). If the K-Pro had 4.4 available, I'll probably order one. Main reason? One of the apps I would use on it (besides the reading apps) runs better on 4.4 than on 4.04 or 4.2.2. Thanks again!

Hopefully it functions better than 4.4 for the T68. My T68 is still laying dead on a shelf after installing it.

I decided to finally bite and ordered a K-Pro from Booxtor's store. I live in the USA, and it arrived 48 hours after I placed my order! Impressive. Anyway, I emailed Booxtor's store to ask about the promised 4.4 upgrade. I'll pass along any answer I get.

So far, I like the K-Pro a lot. The only drawback I see is that Onyx went back to 4.0.4 for this device - odd, as the C67ML Carta has 4.2.2.

I had a message from the eReader Store that the upgrade should be posted in 2-3 weeks.

I'm starting to suspect the Booxtor store is http://ereader-store.de/en/.

Just a heads up, BangGood seem to have Kepler Pro in stock for $208.

You're right! I bought my Onyx Max from his store.

Yes, that is Booxtor's store. (I assumed that everyone here knew that!).

You could save a bit by ordering from Banggood. (I've done that before.) This time, however, it seemed better to support the store that might give me a 4.4 upgrade. Besides, I got my K-Pro in 48 hours. That's worth a few pennies right there.

Yeah, I was surprised to find out there's different update tracks for the vendor and the retailer. Does Booxtor install their own build of Android on Kepler (with different signatures I'd assume) which can only be updated with Booxtor's updates and the regular caught in the wild Keplers can't?

Totally, sadly for your neighbours up north, faster delivery = courier services = outrages fees for "brokerage/customs clearance" (this is separate from the government duties/taxes) sometimes exceeding the value of goods.

I don't know the answer to your first question. It's not clear from the eReader-store site. Is the update their own build, or is it a pre-release of a future Onyx update? (If you see this, Booxtor, feel free to answer!!) My best guess is that it's an in-house build, but I wouldn't bet a lot on that.

There are different Keplers running around in the wild (I've seen some, shall we say, 'interesting' discussions on that topic), but perhaps it is safe to say that all K-Pros are basically the same? The specs seem to be identical to the K-Pro that Banggood offers - though some vendors aren't careful with the specs they post.

Yeah, I hadn't thought of the very high brokerage fees that some folks (like you) have to pay for some imports. That really is outrageous.

Are you in Canada? I went to school in Ottawa, and at one time lived in Calais (right across from St. Stephen, NB) and in Fort Kent (along the northern border with NB). For folks in Maine, going to Canada is no biggie. It doesn't feel like a foreign country to us. Many of us have roots in Canada.
