View Full Version : Turn Off Welcome Screen?

06-17-2011, 07:58 AM
Thanks for all those replies to my other thread on turning off the tablet side when eink side is in use.

I have had this unit now for a week and I love the damn thing. I have a painting/paperhanging business and it is my "office away from home." I brought it into a McDonalds at lunchtime this week and my red PE drew a small crowd of 3 under-21 kids wanting to know what it was. I didn't reckon on being this cool when I bought the thing:)

Anyway, there is one thing I find unnecessary and a little annoying. When you come back from hibernation that welcome screen with the "unlock" pull tab and and "sound" tab would be a great thing to permanently bypass. Any tips for this?

I think if you be sure to push "menu" instead of "home", just the e-ink screen will be active.
Or do you mean you want to bypass the unlock screen when you reopen the android side?
I don't think that is possible. It's an "android thing".

I am new to android and have to get my head wrapped around the idea that it seems you can't tweak the OS but you can buy an app. Thanks for that suggestion. Here is more what will fit me below. It was on the sidebar of the page your linked.

Did anyone ever figure out how to alter the static eInk screen, or the initialization screen graphic? It'd be fun to replace those!

I wasted quite a bit of time messing with the tablet side wallpaper before I realized the eDGe thinks it's in portrait mode and sizes the wallpaper in a square.
