Hi again,
it would be nice to have a direct access to the library (ie "MyBooks") rather than having to look through internal storage.

You can make a direct access to your books folder

Instead of use otfm, you can use shell script to copy files to/from firmware memory, delete or create folders etc. The script has .oar extension.
You can see similar script in otfm installer.
But it is more dangerous than otfm.

Why can't I get to the firmware on my pc? Why doesn't my pc show all those system files and directories?

Thats just one step from Internal memory to Mybooks if you put Mybooks directly under he root. And from SD you can get direct access by placing your books in the root.

Hello,

I know, but I think it would still be nice to have a direct access to the the library as it is, for me at least, the main purpose of this device.

For example, Booxtor's script for update new pdf reader for i62HD:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cp /media/flash/onyx_pdf_reader /opt/onyx/arm/bin/
you can change it to save the old file:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
mkdir  /media/flash/old/
cp /opt/onyx/arm/bin/onyx_pdf_reader  /media/flash/old/
cp /media/flash/onyx_pdf_reader /opt/onyx/arm/bin/
If you run it on firefly, pdf does not work.
Return saved version back:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cp /media/flash/old/onyx_pdf_reader /opt/onyx/arm/bin/

It is in different partition. In win terminology another disk. And I guess, it is so also to prevent unexperienced users to messup things in a reader.

I guess in US, the user might sue distributor, Onyx or anyone involved in sales chain for the loss by being allowed to brick the reader, for psychical strain of not being alble to use the reader and so on.
