I made a new version of the norefreshenabler app from post #16. After you install it, you get 2 apps, one to enable the no-refresh mode and another to restore the default. There is no close button anymore, it closes itself automatically. I tried closing the app immediately but when I do that the screen mode does not change, i added a timer with a 2 second duration and that works on my reader. Let me know if that time is not enough.
As far as I know there is no way to get the current updatemode of the screen, which is required to create a toggle app.
It might be possible to use the code of the webbrowser and implement it into the android framework. Unfortunately, I don't have time for that at the moment. Holding a button to switch modes would be nice indeed. I know you can launch an app by holding the search button, do you know if you can do this with other buttons?
I tried setting the mode to 3 in my app, I did that in the Iconizedlistview.zip in one of my posts earlier in this thread. Updatemode 3 just sets the updatemode of the listview and not the whole screen so that does not work.
