When was the first time Onyx promised to release an update to Android 4.4?

Whoa, yes I am, and suddenly a little disappointed and worried. So this has been on the table for close to two years with no delivery?

I wonder what makes it so hard?

Some people learn about backups the hard way. You don't need 4.4 to do regular backups.

Indeed isn't it a great advantage then to use a tablet for making notes, where you can always very easily backup it, instead of paper notes which can be easily lost forever.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is A2 mode?

In essence it disables grey scale, this makes screen refresh much faster since fewer pixels are involved (I know that pixel may not be the exact term for e-ink) and that makes web browsing or video play almost bearable.

There are few videos that are watchable in 1-bit mode, though. Pure black or pure white - no greyscales at all.

Oh I don't disagree, just answered the question. I could never enjoy watching YouTube on my Onyx Max Carta. But if I was in a pinch and had to check a video to figure out how I switch screen modes I'd be able to suffer through it.

Thank you, I should have searched on e-ink a2 instead of onyx a2.

That would be fewer bits, not fewer pixels. I suspect it is not the fewer bits, but that it is faster to slam the e-ink pixel full black or full white without having to precisely show a fractional black portion of the pixel.

I would think smaller fonts would look kind of ragged without the anti-aliasing gray scale allows.

I can't discern any difference in text depending on the A-mode. But I don't use glasses when reading on it.
