BeBook(and other Hanlin clones) is not open. Their firmware(made by Jinke) is a proprietary shit. It is based on linux, but they do not give you any sources(GPL violation!). You cannot fix their stupid bugs and your V3 will keep freezing and rebooting forever.
In fact, you can write a new application or another viewer plugin, but it is almost impossible to use them. You cannot change the bookshelf in order to recognize a new file format and start your new plugin when you open that file. The possibility to run new programs from the bookshelf is inexistent.

You can't call it open.
