Download /proc/mtd to see mapping between device numbers and partitions. Then you can use "ebook.py pinfo" command to get the partition info (there ain't much). You can also execute "/usr/local/sony/bin/nblsdm list" with redirection via the script hook.

You can always extract both and compare From what I've seen, they're almost the same - Reader has an extra SD driver but that's about it. The main difference is the reading application.

Probably the same trick as with /etc would work, i.e. copy files to ramdisk and remount under a subdir. However, currently the hook script runs after tinyhttp so I'm not sure if the updated fonts will be loaded.
