Latest Firmware and Font Suggestion?
#1  Acreo Aeneas 01-03-2012, 01:39 AM
Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've logged onto MR and it's been so long since I've checked up on any updates for my Pocket Pro (5").

What's the latest firmware for my Pocket Pro now? I see the EZReader site no longer is online and I can't find anywhere official where I could get the latest firmware download. Any one have a link?

Also, I'm rather tired of the thin fonts my PP offers. Any sans serif font suggestions that have bolder typefaces (something that would offer similar readability to the Kindles and whatnot mainstream)?

Just no TTS, otherwise it behaves nicely

Hi
Does the firmware you found let you enlarge the font size. If so how much? I have been thinking of getting one of these. I need to be able to enlarge the fonts sometimes when I am reading

thanks for your comments

9 levels
It looks like a better version of the last FW the PEZ was built with. (BTW it had NO MP# or TTS)

Yes I know this is an old thread.

Do you, or does anyone, have a copy of the firmware on hand they can send me or link for me? I just got a pocketpro and I would like to have more than 4 font sizes. The biggest is a little too small for my taste.

Thanks!

Thanks to a very nice mobileread member, I was able to get hold of the firmware update I wanted, and successfully updated my PEZ. Then in an experiment, I added my favorite font in a folder named "fonts" and that worked! I now have 9 font sizes, I think. Though I wish there was an in-between size. Still, I love the way the text is displayed on the PEZ. And I love the folders and subfolders I can put on it. And it's eink! Too bad the company is long gone, this is really a nice ereader.

No it doesn't seem to have worked, adding fonts. In fact even all the onboard fonts look exactly the same LOL
