Ladies and gentlemen,
I found (although in Chinese and I don’t really read Chinese) a firmware update for the iRiver Story, that updates the firmware to 1.71. This is significant since the official English iRiver Story only goes up to firmware 1.61. As far as changes go, the details are in Chinese but some crude translations basically state only bug fixes, no feature additions, but Ill be playing with the device and seeing if I notice anything new.
The download link is http://dn-iriver1.ktics.co.kr/update/firmware/ebook/kor/ebook.hex.
As far as installing the update, its the same as the others, which involves dragging the HEX file across to the root folder of your device (obviously plugged in). After the file is copied, unplug the device and it will do it’s thing and update the firmware.
