Smile M96 Universe Optimization

Hey All,

New here, so I just wanted to say hello!

Thanks to your threads I pulled the trigger and got an M96 Universe and it came in the mail today

I was wondering if you could all help me optimize it and get it smoothed out? The first thing I will do is update to the newest version (1.6.2) and reset to factory defaults (thanks Booxtor!).

I have most of the apps and add-ons I want so those are not necessary but definitely could use help with the default hardware and bloatware I can remove. Also, any tricks and useful advice you guys have for a newbie booxer would be appreciated.

I will be using it almost solely for scientific papers and books and need all the help I can get towards my PhD FYI My tech skill is decent but my programming skills are weak.

Lastly, can anyone confirm that the M96 can support a SDXC > 32gb in FAT32?

Cheers!

Hi,

Welcome to the e-ink world.

Apart from the play store bug which can be easily resolved with a factory reset, I guess the 1.6.2 update from Sept 2nd is good enough.

For basic reading of the ebooks, I don't think you'll require much add-ons (apart from MarketHelper apk to install otherwise incompatible apps). If you do feel the need to try out something different, you can always add them later.

Thanks for the welcome!

Unfortunately, I could not install the 1.6.2 update and will have to wait a week or so for the Arta Tech release.

Thanks for the MarketHelper suggestion. I forgot about that one- that will be quite helpful. When I posted my optimization request initially I figured the M96 would be slightly buggy because I read about the problems with the M92 and T86. I guess they figured out enough of the issues to give you a quality e-ink reader out of the box. And the rest I will have to play around with and figure out myself.

As for the SD card, if any one is interested, I just ordered a 32 and 64GB card so I will have an update when I test them out.

Almost forgot about this query.

I believe, you should be able to. Just keep in mind to format it with 32K cluster size. You will need to format it either from the windows command line or a 3rd party utility.

Anyone could test it on real hardware? I would love to use a 64GB SD card

Hi Heres,
Did you stay with this firmware or change?
Can you share the apps that you are using?
Cheers

Have you tried it?
Really curious about the reason why 32k would be the best.
