The biggest hurdle is to get a working Google ID on the IQ. Afterward, it is to find the right variables to make the Market work.

I am sure it would be feasible to do so.

Not necessarily.
Mine died that way spontaneously.
*Before* this thread got started, fortunately. At least I don't have to swear on a stack of bibles that I wasn't messing in the dark places. (Gulp!) I had just finished copying some books from Feedbooks is all.

It was working fine, I shut it down, and when I next powered up it stayed stuck at the welcome screen. It wouldn't even reload the firmware off the SD card.
(I didn't think about unplugging the battery, though...)

So there's no telling if the software is hosed or the hardware is glitching.

It is not hosed. I am able to access the device on ADB so it would be possible to flash the factory firmware back and reboot.

It is just a process that is hanging up. Did you modify anything before closing it? install any apps?

I think it might be because I replaced a few files from the nc_gapps.zip that they used on the NookColor (that is using Android 2.1 based on Linux kernel 2.6.29) and we are using 2.0. Replacing Libs is not a good idea.

But hey...that is how you learn.

Not a thing.
I was done testing and had set it up for the final "production" config.
Last app install was two days before.

Pocketbook has superb CS so I should be back in business in a couple days.

Awesome find. I just rooted my phone the other day... and this was much easier. Thanks so much for all the time and effort.

Ah, by the way, it seems that our russian brothers from ebook.org have found a way to install apps on the internal card.

Fork told me about it. Oviously, he's fluent in Russian. I will ask him. Basically they create a Linux partition where they install the apps on, if I got that right.

You will see the way how to apply app2sd to Pocketbook IQ.
In my case, I could not follow his way for my lack of knowledge and the language barrier.

Can anybody make it easier and understandable for people like me?

Thanks for the link. It is very interesting indeed.

First question: do you know how to setup ADB?

use the nook usb driver from the topic I mentioned earlier and install the android SDK. after that you can use the ADB if you set the usb debug mode on.

Out of interest, how did you get your IQ back? Last I heard, it was clicking.

You are much braver than I am.

Cheers.

If you root your IQ, remove the reading app/widget and then do a factory restore, the widget does not show up again.
