By the way settings module remembers path to the last book it used to setup standby screen - so it should be safe to call it multiple times for the same book.

So after last reading time is properly set - you just need to do

Intent intent = new Intent("android.intent.action.book_selected");
sendBroadcast(intent);

to update standby picture from home page.
Great! Adding it to the launchBook method in the home screen.

First, what are the names for all the built-in menu options? app_pictures doesn't work, nor does app_periodicals.
Secondly, The categories for the second page don't appear in the same order as in the config-file.
Third, is there a way to reload the configuration without killing the app from the settings menu?
Fourth, it appears that the home app loads the default Sony menu after a reboot. It says (and shows) recently read on the first page, but all the buttons are default, and the third page doesn't work.

Update issue 1: I've figured out app_picture, app_periodical and app_allnote. In the default config-file it says app_allnotes which doesn't work.
Update issue 4: It appears starting the device with another launcher and then opening the modified homescreen later solves the fourth issue.
1: These should be all. Adding the list to a comment in the default config.
  • app_allbook
  • app_allnote
  • app_audio
  • app_collection
  • app_dictionary
  • app_googlebook
  • app_handwriting
  • app_library
  • app_periodical
  • app_periodical_reference
  • app_picture
  • app_store
  • app_textmemo
  • app_thirdstore
  • app_webbrowser

2: Category order has been fixed.

3: New feature: Long press on back button in home screen triggers reload of configuration.

4: I haven't been able to reproduce, but when unable to read or parse the configuration file it uses the Sony stock app lists. Reloading the configuration as per point 3 should help when this happens.

New release, V6 (I have to come up with a new version numbering scheme): http://morkl.se/reader/homemod_v6.zip
