Do you know if it opens to the last book you were reading?

The all-important question!
I'll be trying it out soon and let you know if no-one else does.

Just got it installed - I'm still checking a few things, but so far:
* NTX Reader / ebrmain version 1.12.10-1
* And we seem to have re-opening the last book where it left off!

Good thing to see NTX updating their stuff.

Maybe ipad announcement make them think they need good software to back their hardware up....

I will check if pdf support is better, really for a 400 MHZ CPU, it can't even does pdf better than my 324MHZ Nokia! Clearly it is the software not pushing it!!

Anyway, lets hope they keep on improving!

Had a bit of a nightmare getting this firmware on - the zip file wouldn't extract on my Mac at all. Ended up having to fire up a Windows virtual machine to do it. Then the COOL-ER didn't want to read the SD card - it took about three goes of formatting the SD, copying the files over, and trying the upgrade process. And whichever genius at Interead who decided to make the upgrade key combination one that requires three hands has a special place on my death list now.

Anyway, I finally got the thing on. Thoughts:

* the "remember last page" thing doesn't. It seems to put you in the vicinity, but is usually a few pages out. No big deal though.
* font sizing increments seem to work better
* page turning seems a little snappier

I still think the surrounding software for moving around the file system is appallingly clunky, though.

Pageturning does indeed feel (much!) snappier.

I updated in Mac and no problem.
I have two sd-cards: one works good and the other not.
When you unzip the firmware, you must put the files in the sd-card, no in a folder.

PDFs are still a bit crap. Odd wrapping issue if you zoom to a comfortable text size, and the smallest zoom level - whereby page layout integrity is maintained - for some bizarre reason doesn't seem to use the entire screen. There's at least a inch border around the page so the font size is even smaller.

I'm not that dim. I couldn't unzip the zip on my Mac - kept getting Error 36.
