Hi, just got a Max2 and try to update to the latest firmware, as it looks like there are maybe some enhancements (as I have some challenges, which I would like to sort out before asking more questions)
Actual firmware is listed as:
Build Number 2018-01-17_16-39_1.8.3_3322186
Going into the service are I find 2 'updates:
BOOX Max2 V1.8.3 update
BOOX Max2 V1.8.3 （20180129）update
I downloaded both files and placed them in the ‘root’ folder (/storage/embedded/0).
But the update procedure (settings / about / system update / check update from local storage) fails and cannot find one or the other.
After rename to the file “update.upx” it looks like it would work! (You should update your documentation with an advice, that the file must be named ‘update.upx’!)
a) Can you please explain the differences in the ‘1.8.3’ updates?
b) Is the ‘1.8.3’ (without a date) the same build as I already have?
c) Is there a risk going straight to the last update (cumulative vs incremental)?
d) Can I rollback any time?
e) Good practice would be to avoid system updates with the same version number. Here is my first enhancement request: Can you change to a better version / build number system? I mean, the second update should be 184.108.40.206 or having the build number included, not just saying ‘1.8.3’ with a date.
f) Can you provide the md5 sums of these files as it is not state of the art to update a firmware not checking the integrity of the files?
