So hey LikeBookers! Here are links to download firmware files of SW updates for the Boyue LikeBook Plus T80s.

📓Instructions to install update:
1. Download the zip file from the link.
2. Rename it as 'update.zip' and paste it in the parent directory of your device.

💡Note:
1. The provided updates are specifically developed and intended for the T80s only. Users of the Icarus Illumina XL HD should note that I shall take no responsibility if updating their devices with the T80s update causes any issues.

Lightbulb E-ink Launchers!

So here are two (and probably the only) great Launchers developed specifically for e-ink displays.

Downloads:
> ReLaunchX
> ReLaunch

ReLaunchX Sources:
> GitHub:https://github.com/Leszek111/ReLaunchX
> MobileRead: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=284418

ReLaunch Sources:
> GitHub: https://github.com/yiselieren/ReLaunch
> XDA: https://forum.xda-developers.com/noo...n-1-4-t3060782
> 4PDA: https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=270909

Finding APK files for the above two launchers was a bit of a tough job due to dated uploads and broken links. I have hence uploaded the APKs to my own cloud drive and mirrored the same here for easy download. I have provided necessary source links for easy identification of respective projects.

I am in no manner responsible for the development of these launcher apps. I am only sharing these downloads out of community needs. I do not take responsibility for issues caused by installing these apps.

Note: Both, ReLaunch and ReLaunchX were initially developed for the Nook Simple Touch and Onyx Book. The former was developed by a Russian developer yiselieren and later abandoned due to reasons unknown. The latter was then created as a fork of the former by the developer Leszek111 and is still in active development. Both launchers are powerful tools, if well optimized, can provide a great user experience.

P.s., I can help out to the extent of my personal usage of the launchers. Cheers!

Hey, yep. Nothing changed with the language database. Just a few translation updates I presume.

Thanks.

Just updated my Illumina XL to V1.0.2-* with no ill effects. Startup screen now reads Likebook instead of Illumina.
