I bought my max 2 pro from onyxboox.com. I assumed at the time that that was the “official store”, and that I would get the “default” version of the device. However, I have been unable to update the device using the new firmware 2.1.2 from boox.com. After doing some digging, I’ve discovered that onyxboox.com is in fact some Russia-based reseller posing as the official Onyx store, and sells a “customized” version of the device with a different line of firmwares, and I would have to wait for them to produce their “customized” version of the 2.1.2 software. When I questioned them about this, they said that mine is the “international” version of the device, and the boox.com version is not supposed to be used outside of China. This sounds fishy, considering many of you seem to be from various parts of the world other than China, and seem to have the original boox.com version of the device.
Am I alone here? Did anybody else buy their device from onyxboox.com and end up with this mysterious “international version”? Does anybody know what the differences are between the two versions of the firmwares? Is it possible to “reflash” the device with the default version of the firmware? Am I right to worry that this whole thing with a Chinese-built version and a Russian-built “international version” seems fishy, especially since the difference is not advertised publicly?
