NEW ALEX FIRMWARE
#1  vicinc 06-19-2011, 08:26 AM
THE RUSSIAN HISENSE ISSUED A NEW FIRMWARE BACK IN JANUARY. IT HAS FBREADER AS MAIN READER YOU CAN READY MORE FORMATS, ROTATE THE BOOK. Pretty cool Android 1.6.
Just change the language in the settings to English.
I was not happy as the Fbreader has Russian icons. I managed this month to edit the icons to English script so the rom is fully English now. It also features nook style Icons. Also you can install open home 5 which works fine, facebook, stock email and browser on both screens. K9 email works fine on the lcd.
after you install the rom, run the fbreader. will give you a force close after install but works perfect on reboot.
Download the firmware from http://highscreen.org/uploads/Alex/03012011.zip

tried to updload it here but no luck.
