Thank you again for sharing!

my (very short) review
(I just installed the update and tested what I am using the most, nothing else):

+ device and screen seems to get more responsive with every update
- still no nightmode

At a quick glance, the top panel can now also be customised.

On a negative note, my own dictionaries that I have installed in PB Reader do not work for me. But I don't know if this is just my problem or a general problem.

You're right, self installed dictionaries doesn't work for me neither.

I have checked for updates, but my Era thinks it has the latest release, even though it is U700.6.7.1555.

Do they normally delay OTA updates like this?

I've never needed to manually download and install updates before.

(web site still shows 6.7.155 as latest update -- I will just wait for the OTA I think)

It is possible that 803 version is just a preview. Maybe officially will be posted next version.

6.8 is generally for users of Legimi. So it should be available as OTA in Poland and Germany.

I installed 803 on my Era and found dictionaries don't work. I can't look up any word by tapping on it as I could with prior version 1555. I can't seem to install 1555 now. Is there a secret to reverting to 1555?

Copy the SWUPDATE. BIN file of the firmware you want to install in the root directory. Connect the e-reader to the mains. Switch it off. With the forward and backward keys pressed, turn on the e-reader and do not release any of the 3 keys until the software update screen appears.

I think I've tried that, but I'll try again.

I reverted to software version 6.7.1555 with no problems (although it took a little longer than usual for the software update screen to appear).

I tried reverting again with this procedure, and it worked. Must have made a mistake the first time. Thanks.
