Whenever I get these hanging problems with Coolreader, I just delete the whole /mnt/ext1/system/state/cr3 directory (when CR isn't running), and that usually fixes it. This usually happens after upgrading CR; maybe the old cache files aren't compatible with the new application?

N.B. This will erase the remembered positions in everything being read with CR, though.

No, this must have other resasons, I never experienced similar behaviour with such files.

Have you tried re-converting this special cases?

I have tried re-cleaning the original file, but with no effect.

I tried cleaning the cache, no effect. But I'll try your more drastic approach, and save the files in there anyway: these are text files after all, so I should be able to "merge" them afterwards if the system of recording notes has changed between versions. I am pretty sure this did not happen following an update, but of course memory palys tricks!

Thanks for your suggestinos, I'll try them out and let you know.

Well, it looks like system/state/cr3/.cr3hist is just text XML code. You could try explicitly doing "Save history and bookmarks" in the CR main menu (Long OK press) while you have your book open, and then looking at the contents of the XML file to see if anything stands out as a problem. Maybe it'll give you a clue as to why it doesn't work.

I downloaded coolreader from the latest link on this thread; the user guide is in Russian only if I'm not mistaken, and the Wiki page linked to from the beginning of the thread is empty. How does one invoke coolreader? Is it only by changing extensions.cfg ? No direct way?

Also, can I get the script files and the example extensions.cfg from someplace other than narod.ru? I can't get past their annoying scripts and ads.

yes, as far as I am aware there is no guide in English. In order to open an epub file with coolreader you simply modify the cfg file. For the rest, it is pretty immediate - with a short press of the ok button you invoke the context menu and from there you can go into the settings. With a long press you get another menu (which among other things shows you the key mapping). Highlighting is really nice with coolreader, and you can customise reading in many ways.

You should really be creating your own extensions.cfg file based on what additional software you have installed. Only add lines for stuff you changed (e.g. coolreader). The rest will be figured out from the default system cfg file. Using someone else's file can be a problem if you don't have the same new applications installed on your reader.

I am not sure if this has been asked before, but on some epubs CoolReader seems to only read the cover-image-page. It says the book has only one page and there's no text to read. Anyone know how to fix this?

A known bug. Unzip those epubs, see if they contain files with stupid file names, like multiple blanks. CR has some (URI?) encoding problems. Or run recent epubcheck, it gives warnings on problematic filenames inside epubs.
Try renaming suspected files and repack the whole epub, manually or with Sigil. A boring task especially with toc and links.

I have a question regarding CoolReader. I just installed it on my PocketBook 611 with extensions.cfg and PocketBook 6xx menu. The application is starting and the settings menu is really great. However I am not able to save any changes. In the settings menu on the bottom it says "Press Back to save and long Back to Cancel." however I can only cancel and not save my settings.

Any ideas regarding this issue?

[edit]
Scratch that. It's working now. Possibly I used the wrong button as the 611 basically has two "Back" and "Forward" buttons.

So, I just picked up a Cool-er Reader and immediately installed the Pocketbook 301+ firmware on it, and upgraded that to 15.3.

I would like to update its version of CoolReader, and I've got the gist of the process, but could someone give me a quick rundown of how to install the new version(s) of CoolReader, and appropriately modify the extensions.cfg file. As well as anything else I might be missing...
