1) Serial_vnc.oar doesn't freeze the device. It is actually waiting for the signal from computer side and suspends m92 functionality temporarily.You will see a circle with 7 black dots and 1 white dot. You can return back to normal functionality by pressing the "Back/Return" Key.
2) Regarding VNC viewer: Since this is a jar file, you will have to open it via command prompt (cmd.exe). My file is stored at this location :- G:\Onyx Boox M92\Boox M92 as eink Monitor\serial vnc app v0.1\bin\tvnjviewer-2.5.2
So, i type in cmd.exe these two lines
cd /d G:\Onyx Boox M92\Boox M92 as eink Monitor\serial vnc app v0.1\bin\tvnjviewer-2.5.2
java -Dboox_serial_port=COM32 -jar tightvnc-jviewer.jar -JpegImageQuality=Lossless -ViewOnly=Yes
3) You are on Windows 8, so i don't know if there will be any additional problems. Here are the steps i usually follow :
a) Restart my windows and press f8 key, Now i select the option "Disable driver signature enforcement". If i don't do this then device doesn't get detected.
b) Click on start_usb_serial_withoutgetty.oar; Gadget Serial(COMxx) shows up in device manager under Ports(COM & LPT). Also start_usb_serial_withoutgetty.oar file should be placed in the same folder with other gserial files
c) Click on Serial_vnc.oar
d) PC side:- start tightvnc server.exe
e) go to cmd.exe and paste above two lines. Also COM port changes its value every time. It usually takes values 31-34
f) type in the values such as localhost, port no and then password for tightvnc server; that's it
