I've had another donation, but I don't know if it's a vote for Sony or Nook ?

First general release (0.1.0.00) which runs on both the Nook and Sony is now available on my google code page.

Maybe a bug:

Selecting the Apps button on main screen of 0.1.0.01 crashes the application
The device is a rooted sony prs-t1 , italian language selected

Running an app from page 2 works normally

Me too:

1. Appdrawer crashes
2. Collections (Tags) does not work, neither on the Main-Screen (i can select an collection, but it shows nothing on the screen) nor on the "Collecitons" Button.. There will be Collections showed but no Books inside...

Latest Firmware (1.04)...

Okay, 2. Bug is already here:
https://code.google.com/p/sonyprst1h...y=&sort=&id=42

Thank you for fixing!!

I get following error when starting the app:

Database [/mnt/sdcard/Sony_Reader/database/books.db] failed to open.

I think this happened after i upload a book with calibre. My pc is running linux mint and i have latest calibre and ebooklauncher installed.
Any suggestions?

If the books.db database is broken you can delete the file and the reader builds a new one after a reboot. I have found that I must disconnect the reader within calibre before disconnecting from the pc (click on the reader symbol and choose "remove") then I have no corrupt databases anymore. This is under windows but I think that this behaviour is the same under linux.

I had this problem too, which was possibly caused by me setting Calibre's metadata management to "automatic management" (in Preferences > Sending Books to Devices), rather than its default "manual management". I never disconnected my reader without removing it safely from within Calibre, so that was not the cause for me.

I tried this method multiple times to fix the error, but it kept returning with the same error after the reboot.

I finally fixed it by uninstalling eBookLauncher (version 0.1.1.04).
To do this, go to Total Commander > Installed Apps > eBookLauncher > Uninstall

I have since reinstalled eBookLauncher, with my calibre settings set as "manual management" and have not had the same problem since.

Hope this helps someone!

Would it be possible to add some functions which marks a selected book as "Unread" and "Read"? ie, so it takes the book out of the "currently reading" section.

And is there a way to exit the app completely? ie a button on screen somewhere (rather than the physical buttons) which will close it and go back to the original firmware.

Hello - I recently installed this alternate home screen and boy, do I love it. Thanks, Smart People!

I know the thread isn't very active anymore, but maybe someone knows the answer to this thing I'm wondering about: in the books list, I have books sorted by file name, so that when I open a series collection the books are listed in series order. When I mark a series collection to be included as one of the home screen collections, the books are listed in apparently random order.

Is there a setting I'm missing that controls how the home screen collections carousels are sorted?

If I get the error message of the books.db I just reinstall the ebookreader software.
No need for uninstalling.

Would be nice if the Find function will start to work. Especially useful if you have an extra SD-card with tons of books installed.

Thanks Andy I am using your software on a daily base!
