New to PRS-505 hack - Improved PDF support

Hello,

I'm quite new to PRS-505 (only have one for 2 weeks), and I'm already looking at how to hack it.
It seems, from what I have seen, that it is possible to run shell scripts from the SDCard.
As far as this is possible, I think it should be possible to run any compiled program. What would make this impossible ?

If this is ok, then, it could be good to try to write or port a PDF reader with more zoom options to the PRS-505.

Thanks to let me know the current limitations to do this.

It's not impossible, just that there's not enough info to do so. See the OpenInkpot forum for details, but it's pretty much the same jump as from editing a Windows batch file to writing your own Adobe Reader replacement application!
