The package at http://morkl.se/reader/JuneReader.zip has been updated, and if I don't hear about any critical bugs I'll put it up at SourceForge in the weekend

This is great news! Thank you so much Morkl, jackie_w, and everyone else who has helped out.

If you want to use the no-root version but can't (or don't want to) run the flash_reader.bat file (because you're on a Mac or Linux or whatever), I can now confirm that the Mac/Linux rooting instructions from the Wiki and Boroda appear to work on Morkl's install_noroot version. This is what I did, and so far it appears to be working fine:
  • Download and unzip Morkl's EbookReader.
  • Copy the "reader" folder to the root directory of your T1's Reader partition.
  • Open the "install_noroot" folder and copy the "PRS-T1 Update.package" file and the two folders inside the "sdcard" folder ("updates" and "tmp") to the Reader partition.
  • You should now have 4 new items in the root directory of your T1's Reader partition: "reader" folder, "PRS-T1 Update.package" file, "updates" folder and "tmp" folder.
  • Shutdown T1.
  • Hold the Home and Menu buttons together, and while holding them down, turn on your T1. Hold the buttons for at least 5 seconds after the "Opening Book" screen appears (I waited until the progress bar finished), then release the buttons.
  • Wait, and it should flash and boot in normal mode.
  • Edit reader.xml and css files (in the "reader" folder) as desired.
  • Enjoy new reader app!
