Prepare for upgrade – IMPORTANT

    • Check in Settings\System Information\Charge
  2. Connect the ReaderPen to your computer using the micro-USB cable and select U-disk mode.
  3. Backup your content by upload any data you may have on the device to a computer (the folders e_History, e_Music, e_Recorder, e_ScanFile). See THIS video for reference.
  4. On ReaderPen – go to Settings\Default settings and reset your device.
    • This operation will clean the ReaderPen from any user data – make sure you have secured it.
    • This step is important to secure sufficient space for the upgrade.
    • If memory space is insufficient, upgrade will fail and may cause the ReaderPen to malfunction.
  5. Check serial number of your ReaderPen
