DR800 How to update firmware
#1  skrybo 09-16-2013, 07:42 AM
Hi guys,

1. Could you instruct me how to update firmware (I know where to find RC4 and 800+, but I don't know how to physically proceed: where to copy files, which files I should delete etc). Irex page with update instruction does not exists...I saw
2. Which version whould you recommend? (priority: battery life, then functionality)

Many thanks in advice!!!

Regards,
skrybo

Well, its kinda like this .... The 800/1000 and irex in general are 'dead' ... so try searching the mobiread wiki for digital reader software ... also the 800 and 1000 irex forums ... If you come up with anything that is useful, let me know as the 800 I have is not responding to power on/off reboots (it stalls before starting the "spinning" logo) ...dead battery, changed battery, recharged and discharged .. rinse repeat ... and I did follow the reboot/reload directions on these forums

to update the firmware, put the contents of the zip files on the SD card:
X:\System\update

it should have a series of *.bin and *.dat files (like boot.bin, kernel.bin etc)

restart the dr800, and it should automatically update...

RC4 is the unofficial one, that has a real "turn off device" feature. After 24 hrs it will turn off completely... this means it must do a complete reboot after that, but it will save the battery

Although I wasn't the one requesting it, I want to thank pauli for posting the firmware files. I just updated my wife's dr800 to rc4 and I am looking forward to the results!

I did the update some time ago and the battery life has improved substantially. Thanks for sharing this update, pauli!

Hi, would that all be the same for a Windows7 pc?

As soon as I connect my IREX it is listed as a connected device. I is also listed as a memorycard, however I cannot look on it. Furthermore, programs like ADE, Calibre and the explorer are blocked. They will work again as soon as I disconnect my IREX.

Any idea what I can do to solve this? Should I download this firmware also?
