The first file shows that it is not just a black and white filter but true layer selection: it only displays the text layer and not the dark colour of the book cover.

The last picture shows clearly how bad the contrast is if the pages are rendered with the "colour" mode on a 8bit grayscale ebook... and the screenshot is looking even better than it does in reality! In reality the text is barely readable. However, if you compare it with the modified version you will see the significant improvement.

Those are one and the same file. Just displayed with the native pocketbook viewer (left) and with my viewer (right).
