BOOX V3.2 Firmware Changelog

 

The wait is finally over.

Since the debut of new products Max Lumi2, Note Air2 and Note5, many users have been looking forward to the V3.2 firmware rolling out to more models. There’re so many exciting features — pinned brushes on the notes, OneNote handwriting improvement, BOOXDrop and more.

We can’t be more thrilled to announce that the latest firmware has been released to Max Lumi, Note Air, Note3, Nova3, Nova3 Color, Nova Air, Poke3, Leaf, Max3, Note2, Nova2, Poke2 and Poke2 Color. And we’re also working hard to make V3.2 work on more models.

If you haven’t updated yet, tap Settings>Firmware Update to check for updates or download packages from our downloads website when they’re available. You can also read this article for detailed instructions.

Check the highlights of V3.2

Update Notes

  • Before you update to the V3.2 firmware, please switch the NeoReader to the V2 engine to avoid data mess and confusion. (Open a book> Settings in the upper right corner> Other Settings> Use the V2 engine)
  • V3.2 replaces Transfer Books app and WIFI Transfer with a new app BOOXDrop. BOOXDrop can facilitate the mutual file transfer between PC and BOOX.
  • V3.2 removes the cutting file feature in storage to avoid unrecognizable embedded data.
  • Since V3.2, the cloud backup of notes is not available anymore.
