Exampe code for using edge eInk

Here is an example application that draws directly into eInk frame buffer.

Both the source and built application are attached.

It is basically port of this "Send to Framebuffer" application to EE

before using the installed application issue the following command to allow access to eInk:
adb shell su -c chmod 666 /dev/graphics/fb2

Once installed, long press in file browser on image file, select "Send" from menu, select "Send to eDGe eInk", the image will be displayed there.

The source code shall be sufficient to get anyone started. In particular EdgeFB class can be directly reused. Or it can just serve as an example.

Anyone want to take a shot on adding eInk support to fbreader ?

Well, not exactly. The code shows how to work with frame buffer data and properties at low level, and how to use android graphics facilities to prepare bitmap suitable for displaying on eink screen.

It does not implement any standard android interfaces that would allow using epaper as if it is regular display. That would be next step.
