In my country, the PocketBook is distributed under the "Vivlio" brand. I*figured that this would not be a problem but I*realise that I*don't have the Dropbox sync on my Vivlio PB632. Is there a way to install the original PB firmware on it?

Did you try to install the firmware manually? Download the newest firmware from here: https://www.pocketbook-int.com/int/s...ook-touch-hd-3

I got these steps from PB support once. Maybe they'll work for you too:
1. Download the software file.
2. Unpack the content of the archive, file SWUPDATE. BIN, and copy it to the root folder of the device.
3. Switch off the device by pressing button On/Off.
4. Press and hold both Backward and Forward buttons.
5. Switch on the device by pressing On/Off. Hold both Backward and Forward buttons until the message Updating firmware… is displayed on the screen.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions with pictures.

Hello,

did someone succeed flashing a Vivlio HD plus with original pocketbook firmware ?

The local 'french touch' Vivlio has removed dropbox & pbsync functions on the device... I suppose to constraint readers going through commercial library for automatic loading of bought files...

Vivlio = ancienne TEA
Oui. Si vous n'utilises pas les libraires Vivlio/Cultura, vous pouvais.
TEA bondonné développement de leurs firmware, alors ils ont préféré changer leur nom pour Vivlio.
* Je recommanderais plutôt d'acheter les liseuses directement à partir de Pocketbook, comme chez les revendres TEA ou Vivlio..

----------------------------------------------
TEA = Vivlio.
Yes .. If you do not use booksellers Vivlio / Cultura, you could.
TEA bonded development of their firmware, so they preferred to change their name to Vivlio.
* I would rather buy the eReaders directly from Pocketbook, like at TEA or Vivlio ..

Yep, but the most annoying bugs for me have not been fixed. For some books the device will still freeze when it's calculating the page count, and Norwegian hyphenation has still not been added despite this being a quite popular device in Norway. I reported these to support about a month ago.
The PB reader is just buggy and slow in general for me. I thought this was just a natural limitation considering the hardware, but Coolreader functions much more smoothly.

But it's nice that they're still updating the firmware, hope they will keep it up

You can add your own (Open-/LibreOffice) hyphenation dictionary by simply copying it to the corresponding folder on the device, at least on PB631.

Hyphenation CAN be the cause for crashes while calculating page numbers. I found that strings like 1956-ban, 2000-ben, etc. caused crashes (may have been fixed since then), so as a precaution I replace those hyphens with non-breaking hyphens before uploading. No crashes at all for me, I only use the stock reader app, I don't care about CR.

That's nice, I didn't know that. I got a Norwegian hyphenation dictionary for Libreoffice, but can't get it to work. The only folder that contains hyphenation files are in PB626/system/adobe/hyphenDict The pattern of the file I have looks exactly like the others.

Seems like a strange location for hyphen files, though, since Adobe Reader has been deprecated.

First, I forgot to write that I only read ePubs. No idea for hyphenation in other formats.

Codepage matters. UTF-8 works for me, check your dic file (it's just text). Also the name must be hyph_XX.dic where XX is the two letter mnemonic for norwegian.
And yes, I put it where all the other hyph files are, under adobe. Try it with a freshly loaded book, turn hyph. on-off-on to force a refresh.

I'm pretty sure the reader app uses some Adobe code: no support for small-caps, a typical Adobe issue.

This solution worked for me for HU language also with ADE. Since then PB added proper hyph_hu.dic to the firmware, but I keep overwriting it with mine (OpenOffice) because the stock one does not support non-standard hyphenation (like: vissza - visz-sza).

Thanks for the explanation. Sadly it doesn't work for me. I tried every variation of hyph_no.dic that I could think of, and I formatted the files in UTF-8 and tried it with some Norwegian books that I've never loaded before. Maybe the TL3 just doesn't support this.

Installed Pocketbook firmware for Vivlio version of Inkpad 3

I followed the instructions of Lykke(many thanks for them) and installed the new firmware from pocketbook on my Inkpad 3 that I ordered from https://www.decitre.fr/liseuses/lise...152095542.html
I do not understand why they would remove chess and Sudoku which I play occasionally. Also, I guess as many others, I am not too keen on some of these commercial interfaces.

But now, my Inkpad has been set free into the matrix.

Lykke, I thank you for the instructions and my Inkpad 3 seems to be working well for the moment being. Maybe I will read some Knausgård. Love live e-readers.
