  • Firmware Update
    This firmware update addresses some minor bugs to the 700EB that may affect your enjoyment of reading.

    To complete the upgrade you need to use a computer and a mini USB cable to load the firmware onto the eBook. The upgrade will format the eBook and delete eBooks and files from your storage. You can reload your eBooks which will be stored in Digital Editions after the upgrade is completed.  Please ensure you back up all data as Elonex cannot be held responsible for data loss.
