I have just received a Bookeen Cybook Opus ereader as a gift. On visiting the Bookeen site I found that there is an update from version 2.0 to 2.1 available. In the download instructions it says that after unzipping I should "Copy the file “update_kernel” to the root of the storage card". There is a Micro SD card slot in the reader but at present I have no card. Is it not possible to update the ereader without this card?. There is a 1GB internal memory on the device and I wondered if it was possible to upgrade to that instead.

I couldn't locate anything on it. I could find the product, but not a lot of external information about it. I would have looked over their instructions, but they wanted me to login to look at the download section. I don't want a login if I don't use the item.

The bottom line is, that may indeed be the only way to do it.

So what I would do is get a cheap micro SD, put the update (extracted, of course) as the only thing on it and follow the instructions the maker provides.

The Cybook Opus supports micro SD cards up to 8 GB.
