Geez, that's too bad - I'm finding my POS works really well.

I wondered why the download for 34c wasn't working. I can't get logged in to the ftp site, "anonymous" isn't doing it. Anyone have guidance as to how to get this downloaded? Got a new JBL coming tomorrow, love to have the firmware for it.

gilowyn, try this:

Hold down the power and right arrow key until the jetBook LED comes on. Then release the power key and CONTINUE to hold > until you see the upgrade confirmation page.

Thundergirls.

the 34b firmware is not for the jetbook 'lite' it is for the original full version jetbook with rechargable lithium ion batteries built in.

you want the lite_015.exe version

Thanks Kralik - didn't work either, unfortunately. It is going back tomorrow, the Kindle was shipped today. It is one month old, already freezes and has only one way to update/ flash the firmware... and if that doesn't work, you are basically stuck. Annoyed as hell.

Hopefully, the Kindle will be a tad better.... and I at least have Amazon in case of problems, who usually are good with those.

Best of luck with your new Reader.

I have two Kindle 2s, and one jetBook.

You might want to update your Profile to indicate what Reader you own.
