That's actually not 100% correct. Nova3 isn't supported by decryptor afaik. You need to first root the device to get the decryption keys, so someone has to do the honors with EDL
it is 100% correct... you don't need root to get the decryption keys, the /system is world readable

Yes, my bad, I edited the message not to spread confusion. I guess I was thinking of some other app I needed root to extract.

Hi guys, can you help me in understanding what root can be useful at? And also to understand what the tools you listed do?
I am a Max2 Pro owner and I really would like to personalise my Boox more.

Cheers

I imagine there's no real answer to that. The question was asked by someone else and there was no reply.

Take ownership of the device and ensure it actually becomes your property, empowering yourself to make practical use of the full potential of the device capabilities.

If the manufacturer is the only one who can decide what can be done and not be done on a given device, the buyer of the computer/phone/e-reader doesn't really own it and is not free to use it on his/her own terms.

This is at the same time a question of liberty and of technical flexibility.

Unfortunately, most people are only consumer minded and simply don't care, with all the negative consequences this includes, and that's what the manufacturers in the end cater to, effectively limiting and even prohibiting to use the inherent potential of the sold devices for everyone.

We live in very strange times indeed.

Actually I managed to decrypt the update with your strings without any problem. I attach decrypted boot.img partition. I zipped it, because mobileread doesn't take .img files

Maybe the reason for your problem is malformed update.upx file?
Hope it helps you.

EDIT: Use this file at your own risk of course. There shouldn't be any problems with it, but who knows.
Thanks!

For those of you interested, I was able to pull the following strings for the BOOX Note Air:

Code
'NoteAir': {	"MODEL": "NoteAir",	"STRING_7F00500": "U04vqHYo0LFoJQAvP3Rs1aBxySs7z4T1B+asamimEoAf", # settings	"STRING_7F00501": "VD1ZqgIl08305CVeftRI7qGBtq9bCMrJ3a1VkpkzjOu2", # upgrade	"STRING_7F00502": "PW8K6VI//Zt6iqjYQWN0LIwRTVYyDHJvHNEXFwWV" # local
},
The current firmware URL is:

Code
http://firmware-us.boox.com/3df6fad536d71c6e8fa2df5a7fc710fe/update.upx
Which was derived via the following URL:

Code
http://data.onyx-international.cn/api/firmware/update?where={"buildNumber":0,"buildType":"user","deviceMAC":"","lang":"en_US","model":"NoteAir","submodel":"","fingerprint":""}
I will post an update once I successfully decrypt the file.
