update to latest firmware or to Linux

Hello,

I've got a PRS-T1 since 2012. I do not see any newer updates from Sony after 2014 (1.0.07.05070 - released on 19 June 2014). Is this really the latest one? Or are there any FOSS versions based on Linux?

Thanks

matthias

What features are you missing from the old FW that you need a new one?
Or what bugs of the old FW bugs you?

I have some issues with the device, sometimes it just locks-up and I have to push the small reset button. This could be as well hardware faults after such a long time. In any case the software (1.0.04.12210) is very old and for example the webbrowser can not render pages I'm used to read (example: www.jungewelt.de). That's why I was looking for a recent version, but even the last available is old (2014).

May be it's time to buy another device.

You could look into getting a used T2 or T3. I had a T1 that eventually started locking up when trying to look up words in the dictionary. My T3 hardly ever locked up - I stopped using it only because it stopped being able to get Overdrive library books directly. From what I've read on this forum, the T2 is also reliable.

I got a T1 from CEX. I decided after updating to the last version FW, that it was inherently unreliable. I demonstrated it freezing.
They refunded.
The PRS350 is fine. Kindle PW3 is fine, Nook simple Touch OK, Kobo H2O original OK.
I've read many threads on the T1. It seems to be a lemon.

My T1 worked fine for a few years but once it started having the frequent dictionary lockup problem that was pretty annoying. Then it stopped being able to get library books direct after an Overdrive change so I moved on to a T3.

The T3 was much more stable and only rarely locked up. Unfortunately it recently lost the direct Overdrive capability so I switched to Kobo. However, the T3 still works well otherwise so I am keeping it as a backup.
