OpenInkpot section moved into the Archive
The OpenInkpot project was started in 2007 by MobileRead member dottedmag with the goal to create a drop-in open-source firmware replacement for E Ink based e-reading devices. Two device families were initially supported, the Hanlin V3 and the Hanvon N516, along with their many clones. Unfortunately the project appears to have stalled, with no recent reading hardware being supported. And from what we've heard, jekhor, the only kernel hacker who was actively involved in the project has been unavailable due to time constraints.
Until there is reason to believe that the project will revive (any willing kernel hackers out there?), we're going to move OpenInkpot to our Archive section. The project's source code is still available via Git: http://git.openinkpot.org/

Alas, poor OI! I knew him, Horatio...(when I was still using my BeBook One, that is). It was my favourite firmware, back in the day of the Hanlin V3.

But I haven't used my BeBook for quite some time either, having moved on to reading on my cell phone (bigger screen on today's cell phones, convenience, as it's already in my pocket anyway) or my Android tablet.
