Upgrading Book Sense XT from 2.1 or earlier

 

Caution: Only for Book Sense XT users and only for those who have not yet upgraded to 2.2.

 

Please note: This procedure is very different than those listed above. Please read the instructions in their entirety before proceeding with the upgrade.

 

Download the upgrade file from the following link:

 

www.himsintl.com/Upgrade/BookSenseXT_Eng_v221_From_V21_110113.zip

 

Please note the following:

 

1. Before upgrading your Book Sense, back up all the data from your flash disk to your PC, an SD card, or USB memory stick as a format of the flash disk is required to complete the upgrade process, and the format will erase all your data.

2. The Upgrade procedure must be performed twice--this is not a misprint. Once the first upgrade is complete, you must repeat the upgrade process again for the firmware to install fully.

3. The Upgrade will take about 5 minutes. When the upgrade is complete, the Book Sense XT will restart, so please do not press the reset button or disconnect the AC adaptor during the upgrade process.

4. After you go through the upgrade process twice, you must format the flash disk. (To do this, navigate to Format Storage Device under the Global Options Menu, and choose "Format Flash Disk")  

5. Keys for NLS, FB&D and Serotek should remain intact as these are installed in a protected area of the Book Sense not affected by the flash disk format. If you use Audible.com, please be sure to back up the Audible folder before formatting the flash disk, and restore it once the format is complete.

 

Follow the instructions below to upgrade your Book Sense XT:

 

1. Download the zip file containing the firmware from the link above to your PC.

2. Extract the firmware file on your PC; be sure it contains 5 things- a folder and 4 files.

3. Copy the 5 things (a folder and 4 files) from your PC and paste them into the root of your SD card; be sure that all the contents, a folder and 4 files, are placed in the root of the SD card.

4. Insert the SD card into the Book Sense XT.

5. Connect the AC adaptor to the Book Sense XT.

6. Power on the Book Sense XT.

7. Press the MENU button and navigate to "Advanced options" using the Up or Down arrow.

9. Press the Right arrow; when asked "Do you want to upgrade??? choose ??Yes".

10. Press the MENU or the OK button and the system will reboot and start upgrading.  

11. When the 1st upgrade is complete, repeat the above steps 7 through 10. Note: the Book Sense will inform you that you are already running the firmware found on the SD card and ask if you wish to upgrade anyway. Please press the OK key to continue with the upgrade.
