Thumbs down setLocale() exception

I tried this firmware, but found a problem:
The ReaderEpub app doesn't follow the "my fonts" settings. I have to install the package from twll. However, after overwriting it, the custom dictionary will result in an sqlite error. I'm wondering if this is due to the Russian support mod or twll hack? Because of this problem, I tried a completely wipe with firmware 1.0, but the problem still exist after Reader app replaced.

Forgot to mention that the whole ROM is actually packed quite neat and the battery usage is very good. It servers quite well as long as you don't need custom font and custom dictionary at the same time.

Hi all,

Lovely community you've got here.

I have a question about flashing the new firmware. I'm running rooted nook -eink with serial > 1003*, firmware 1.41, and mynook.ru launcher. Do I have the process right? (admittedly filtered through google translate)

1) unzip file and copy bravo_update.dat to EXTERNAL sd while it is mounted on pc
2) adb push not install nookUpdate.apk to /data/app/net.runserver.nookUpdate.apk
3) ???? (reboot nook and follow prompts on-screen to find firmware image and update?)
4) PROFIT!! (reboot again into modified 1.7)

Or will I lose root and thus should start the process with putting the adbd.html file on external sd so I can reroot first?

Thanks for any and all help.

That would be about right. I'm not sure why you couldn't run adb install (I got the update manually, which took forever).

It depends on your point of view. I haven't seen any real benefits (except for an unstable system XD ), but you might have better results than myself.

Flashed it today!

I did reinstall the orginal nookdev launcher and the nookdev libary app and so far I'm very pleased.

The new (?) fullscreen option in the reader app is gorgeous, everything works very smooth and fast and the new additions are welcome.

I haven't tested the battery life yet (so far it's still charging) but I hope to be surprised

What fullscreen option are you talking about? In the B&N Reader?

Yes.

Battery life so far seems to be very decent.

How to install + a few remarks

Hi guys.

Yesterday I installed this firmware. Thanks to Darkker, Twll, Nomad and all friends that make nook such a good reader. Without you passing the knowledge, it would not be the same.

The installation is simple enough.

1) You need a rooted Nook. Mine was originally 1.5 (September 2010) which was upgraded to 1.7 and then rooted. The browser hack at NookDevs is easy enough to perform.

2) Get the 1.7 bravo update file from here http://runserver.net/temp/bravo_update_1.7.0k.zip Unzip it to the root directory of Nook
3) Get the update application from here http://runserver.net/nook/nookUpdate.apk
4) Connect to the nook by adb. Install nookUpdate.apk by "adb install nookUpdate.apk"
5) On the nook interface find the Update application and start it. It will begin the installation.

None of my books were lost. But my former rooted applications got lost.

Tips:
New library is ... not to my tastes. If you also think that way install library from Nookdevs. Again with adb install NookLibrary.apk

-You can put the fonts you want under /my fonts into three directories. I like Ubuntu font, it looks very good on Nook.

Detailed installation steps are here http://twll.blogspot.com/p/nook-firm...rovements.html . Just put them according to the format, you need not change any system files.

-Whenever you open a file to read, you have two choices, Nomad Reader or (regular) Reader.

Nomad reader has many advantages:
-Finer font control. You may chose among 4 fonts.
-Finer font size/line space control. Finally you can chose your exact typography, playing with font sizes and types. You still have additonal five size selection to all these.
-Configurable full screen. In my setup full screen lets me have +3 lines (which is very good I think)

Problem:
With all these improvements, I have a problem.

Nomad reader interferes with book format. I could not understand why but once in ten pages or so it makes an unnecessary line feed.

Like:

Quote:
Usually this is not my problem
into

Quote:
U
sually this is not my problem
This may and may not be a show stopper for you. But times and times the effects are bigger, like a page break that was uncalled.

In a book I even came across missing pictures, which showed just fine with the regular reader while totally missing in the Nomad application.

You may come up with a middle way, like installing the Twll's version of reader, which also has full screen + configurable (but not as much as Nomad's) fonts.


Final words:

Total responsiveness and page refresh rate has improved.

Nomad is a very good reader. If anyone knows how to overcome the problem mentioned above, needless to use the regular one.

Thanks again for being such a nice community.

* Either you go from Firmware 1.0 (old type of nook only).
* Or you use nookUpdate (from NookMarket of nookDevs) on your rooted nook.

I think some soft-rooted FW has crippled the auto update for "safety" reasons.

So did you replace the reader with the latest one on Twll's web site? Some how I can't manage to have the reader app. come with the firmware to use custom fonts. (works after replacing)

Problem:
I have problem of line-break with CJK content. (it simply does not break) Probably it's because CJK usually do not have "space" between characters.

Bumping up to see if anyone has more recent experience with this firmware or the latest available for the classic nook.

Also, I'm not sure if I should be using this Russian firmware or the one via Twll's website - is that based on the 1.7?

Currently I'm running a rooted 1.7. Main complaint is the standby life on my device is crap these days.

Weeks ago, I tried to use re-flash everything. This time, only the libpdfhost.so from twll is used and no previous dictionary problem is found. Since twll's hack is partly based on Russian nooker's work (e-reader app.), I guess it's the different locale caused the problem. For the battery lifetime, I found it's still excellent. Any degradation would be coming from other application installed?

The firmware modifications on Twll's website are very small compared to what is done by the Russian firmware. The Russian firmware is a bit buggy, but has many improvements comparative to stock.
