FBReaderEdge

It's a modification of FBReaderJ for PE/EE.It uses the eink to display book pages,while the ui(menu,etc) will still show on lcd.

How to use it?
1.root your PE with Z4root;
2.install FBReaderJ;
unzip fbreader.apk from the attachment,copy it ito your PE;
click fbreader.apk in you PE to install the application;
3.launch fbreaderJ,when the "app asking for root permission" dialog is displayed,select "yes".
4.open a book in fbreader,whenever a page is ready,it will be displayed both on lcd and eink.You may notice that the book pages are only partly showed on lcd.That's because the app is cheated to use the resolution of eink.
5.use page keys to turn page,use app switcher key(the one with two arrows) to turn on/off the backlight of lcd.



thanks vldmr for the EdgeFB class.

it works fine on my rooted PE,with no stock eink app running(reader/journal/calendar),though the battery seems to run out rather quick.This is the cost of using framebuffer writing to display on eink,I guess.
