Onyx Boox Kepler Pro Recovery?

Hello, im new here as a poster, but i have been helped by posts on this forum trough the years, so first off thanks for all the input.

Right now I own an Onyx Boox Kepler Pro. Recently, Ive been making some bad choices as I changed some settings and fooled around too much without a backup (I did tried for several days, but cant get ADB Devices to recognize the device and show the device in the list, so couldnt do anything at all and quit the idea of having a backup in hopes of being a zip available online anyways)

Right now, my device boots, but once it gets to the home screen, I get a "Unfortuntately, ContentBrowser has stopped"

It doesnt seem like theres anything I can do about it from within. So I want to go straight to reflash it. So the question is, does anybody has a link to a zip file with the android 4.0.4 designed for the Kepler Pro?

I have found in this forum the link to https://ereader-store.de/en/content/8-downloads but cant find a zip file for the Keplr Pro.


thanks!

Email the eReader Store, and ask them for a link. They have it, and may give it to you.

on a similar line, I have been wondering if I can install TWRP into my Kepler. I have it on my phone and it has saved me countless times, plus its a fantastic tool. does anybody has experience with it? I am running into a lot of troubles trying to make a backup of my system so that I can try and tweak settings and come up with interesting mods, but no backup no fun. I mean, I can now just do what I just did, but Ill get back to basics instead to a recent version of my changes.

thanks

TWRP is a great tool - but TWRP needs to be customized for the device it will be used on. Someone needs to make a version that is designed for the Kepler Pro. I haven't seen a version of TWRP for the K-Pro in my online travels - or not yet, anyway.

Yes, those updates you found are the entire system. It's an older version of the K-Pro firmware, but it was good enough to get your device working again.

If they don't, here is a link to the Onyx official (Chinese) site. If you can translate on your browser, you should be able to find the right link to download the most recent firmware (1.8.2):
http://bbs.onyx-international.com.cn...extra=page%3D1

Sometimes, download speeds can be slow on Chinese servers.

Here is a link to the latest version of the Kepler Pro firmware (1.8.2), which uses Android 4.0.4.

eBay, huh? Unfortunately, there are different versions of Kepler devices. For example, Onyx sells a 'stripped-down' version of the Kepler in Russia. If you got a Russian Kepler, then the firmwares in these links will not work.

Yes, you need to find out what kind of Kepler you have and where it came from. Then, you may be able to track down firmware that will work on your device.

P.S.: I was also sent those eReader Store links. I was hoping that their 4.4.4. firmware would work well (even though I know it's beta). Unfortunately, when I tried 4.4.4, neither WiFi nor the frontlight would turn on. YMMV!

yeah, I bought mine from a seller on Ebay, im pretty sure I got the chinese version of some sort, as it came with chinese books and dictionaries.. so I figured your china links would do, but theres the signature problem anyways... its so unfortunate that the wifi doesnt work, because im sure that the OTA would fix that...

lets see what my ebay vendor has to say
