Where did you got the kindle akp ? the version on slide me is old.

Aldiko coudn't install, neither could mantano. Too bad. I wish the message was more explanatory than "app wasn't installed". OK, but why ??

Porkupan, how can i uncompressed the files mmcblk2p10.img, and mmcblk2p9.img, like the file .img on the before version?

thanks

These are ext4 filesystems. You can mount them with -o loop option on most Linux systems.

Is there a way to actually sync this with a google account? I would like to use the calendar function, but previously crashed the system trying to use my google account.

Does anybody know if it is possible to connect a keyboard to the T1, either by USB or by bluetooth?

It would be awesome: writing using an EPD display!!!

I don't think it has either USB host or Bluetooth.

Step one is to have Linux installed. Somewhere.
You can use some Virtual machine, such as Oracle Virtual Box and download some image with a Linux distro installed.

Here is page for VirtualBox download
You can use either community version that is free (as in free speech, or freedom) https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
or you can use version from Oracle, that is free (meaning that you do not have to pay for it) http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/se...ads/index.html

There are lots of images with pre-installed Linux distributions available, such as those
http://virtualboximages.com/Free.Vir....VDI.Downloads
You can use, for example this one
LinuxMint 11 i386 LXDE Virtual Appliance

Then you have to boot into that Linux, copy the *.img file somewhere you can see it and mount it using the above command. When you have Linux installed I will look up and test exact working command for you.


Mounting is connecting another partition / device with a filesystem on it to a directory. In this case the filesystem isn't on a device, such as /dev/sdb1 but in a file itself. This is called loopback.

Dear Porkupan, I have to ask for your help here. My T1 is in bootloop after failed attempt to flash the "enable packet-ADB" downloaded from the link in the first post. I have successfully flashed the Minimal root set and decided to move on enabling the ADB. I have been using Android for about two years now and think that ADB can be useful to me at times.

But now it's in bootloop.. I wonder how can I rescue it... I can't applied the rescue package as the computer won't recognise my device.

Thanks a million in advance and hope that my T1 can come back to life soon

Recovery mode i guess. Not sure if it exists on the T1 or how to access it.

I guess a SD card is needed.. but have to wait for Porkupan's suggestion he has mentioned it in the original release thread that ... There's an option of rescue through SD..

I wonder when did you download the enable-adb package? Just trying to figure out why you may have gone into the boot loop after trying to install it.

To recover you probably don't need to boot from SD card. First of all you need to get into the recovery mode. While the reader is rebooting, press and hold HOME and MENU. The reader should boot into the recovery mode and stop. You may need to hold those buttons until it stops recycling.

You can then log into the USB serial terminal, and restore the ramdisk image by hand.

1) Copy the ramdisk-origi.uimg to micro-SD card
2) Put the card into the reader
3) Mount it:
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sd
4) cd /mnt/sd
dd ramdisk-orig.uimg of=/dev/mmcblk2 seek=10240 count=600 bs=512
5) Reboot

Good luck!
