Warning: This mod works fine for me, but I can't guarantee it will work for you. Use at your own risk!
This mod puts a portal page in front of the regular Google ebookstore. There you can select various links such as Google or Wikipedia. The ebookstore remains usable - it can also be selected.
The portal is stored in the internal memory as webportal.html, so you can easily adapt the link selection to your personal needs. You should backup that file though as it's overwritten every time you (re)install the plugin, and deleted when you uninstall it.
To use, rename the attached hex file to storyeb07.hex and copy it to the internal memory (like a regular firmware update).
This change can also be reverted by using the attached Undo file. This will also delete the webportal.html file.
The reader requires an additional reboot after installing or uninstalling this mod. Once the update / boot process is finished (when you're back in the readers main menu), hold the power button for about 5-15 seconds until the reader turns off. Then turn it back on and the mod should be active.
Updated on 02 Mar 2012:
The mod now has simple download functionality for http and ftp. Unfortunately, it doesn't support https or sites that require a login. This can be used to download ebooks from a local Calibre server, if it's not password protected, or attachments in a forum, if the forum allows guests to download.
Downloads will be stored on the SD card, in a folder called "download", which has to be created by you beforehand. The downloads run in parallel in the background, there is no visual feedback as to the download's progress. Running downloads are cancelled when the reader goes into standby.
If you are using firmware 1.33 US or 1.34 US, iriver removed access to the web browser in those. A downgrade may be possible using this: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=212233
. Also, the device has to be signed into Google for it to start the browser.
