You can update the firmware by performing the following steps.

  1. Download the latest update package from Onyx website.
  2. Save the update package on the SD memory card.
  3. Make sure the update package is located in the root directory of the memory card. You do not need to extract the package. Also leave the name of update package as it is.
  4. Insert the SD card into device.
  5. Restart the device and press and hold the OK button (the center of the joystick button). The OK button should be pressed before the device restarts. Hold it until you see the message Software update request detected, checking updates.... The reader updates itself automatically. It will restart once the update finishes.

[edit] Installing Dictionaries

[edit] Installation Procedure

Create a new folder named dicts in the root directory of the memory card (add picture of how root directory looks like).

Download the desired dictionary files to dicts directory. Make sure you download them in the StarDict format (what is this format?).

Open the downloaded file with an archive extractor like winrar or winzip and extract the downloaded dictionary files to the dicts. For every dictionary you should have a separate folder. The final folder structure should look something like this. For dictionary dict_a:

SDROOT / dicts / dict_a / dict_a.ifo
SDROOT / dicts / dict_a / dict_a.idx
SDROOT / dicts / dict_a /

and for another dictionary called dict_b here:

SDROOT / dicts / dict_b / dict_b.ifo
SDROOT / dicts / dict_b / dict_b.idx
SDROOT / dicts / dict_b /

The dictionary will be installed automatically.

Finally, open a file (what file? where? how?) and use the menu (what menu?) to enable the dictionary. Click on a word. Keep trying until it works (huh?).

[edit] Consulting the Dictionary

The Dictionary can be used in a standalone mode after you select it on the Home page of the reader or while reading books by pressing the dictionary look-up icon Onyx-boox-m92-toolbar-dictionary.png on the toolbar.

Once in the dictionary input the keyword in the text box. Press the Navigation Joystick upward/downward to select the desired word in the list. Press the Navigation Joystick rightward/leftward to move the cursor. Press the Dictionaries icon (insert the icon here) to select the desired dictionary. Press the Navigation Joystick to confirm the option and press the BACK Button to exit.

[edit] Installing Fonts

Create a new folder named fonts in root directory of the memory card. Download the desired font files (what format?) in fonts directory and restart the device. The font will be installed automatically (how can you verify?).

[edit] FAQ

  • How can I take a screenshot?
    • Press and hold the 'volume up' or 'volume down' button for five seconds. There is no visual feedback that a screenshot has been taken. Screenshots are saved as PNG files in a directory "snapshot" on the SD card. (Source)
