Well, I know the PXA255 in the iLiad is capable of better power management than the current software is using (and also know the extra functionality can be added to it if necessary), but I have to do some extensive tests to see if those will actually work well with the rest of the iLiad hardware. Since iRex still hasn't said why it isn't possible in the current (and apparently also not in the 2nd 'new and improved') hardware design it has to be done with trail and error...

I am planning on doing just that in the future, but at the moment most of my time is spend on the software mentioned earlier in this thread...

Cheers,

Aenea

Well, just don't forget about it altogether...there might be more than one interested forum-member...

If I remember correctly, the Iliad can't do Sonystyle (haha) suspend mode because of the way the buttons are wired up or something like that.
It's supposed to be a hardware problem. It is possible that there is at least some room left for improvement even should that prove to be true...I'm looking forward to hearing what you find.

I know, I will not forget it, I don't want to turn of the damn thing every time I stop reading for a little while AND wait for ages to let it start up again, one has to change (or preferably both!).

What I would like to investigate if it's possible to suspend to flash or CF... And also, I want to make sure it is actually a hardware problem and not incompetency of the software people (they really needed me there: )...

All Hail the Goddess Aenea!

I can't imagine what the folks at iRex are thinking, but I suppose they have their reasons. I have some connections at Sun. Ever thought of working on Solaris?

Meanwhile, I can't wait to see what you come up with for a content lister! Something that can display more than 6 items per screen, please, but doesn't have teeny tiny folder expansion icons like FBReader. Surely there must be a happy medium in there somewhere....

But the big question is: does it run on the iLiad??

Hehehe, please don't insult me, I *don't* work for iRex you know!

Ok, now I'm serious: I might have a few more pictures next week so you can see what I made of it....

Is there any progress on this or is it a dead project?

No need to worry, things take more time as usual and it's not the only project I'm working on (no, the others are not ebook related..) And hey, I need time to read as well you know

(I do admit though that that nasty mobi reader page number bug is irritating the hell out of me the past few days, so I expect my own working alternative pretty darn soon....)

So you'll be fixing the iliad's mobi reader to display proper page numbers?

Nope, am working on an alternative reader which doesn't use any of their existing code...

yw. And no, don't have any legal troubles and really want to keep it that way! (hence, no new releases of decoders and stuff )

The only problem I'm having: way not enough time to do the things I want do... hmmz...
