Hi giosa,

My understanding is that the reader apps (stock, modified, additional) aren't started until you start to read a book. Changing the reader config shouldn't affect the ability of your T1 to boot. Did you make any other changes at all, especially under the /system or /data mount points?

Cheers,
Simon.

Hi Simon,

I've only changed reader.xml. I removed all references to stock fonts in xml and changed to my own fonts which i put in mnt/reader/fonts folder. That's it.

There're two arrows left on the screen, the device is off. I'm afraid of screen burning effect, how you guys think burning is an issue?

I really like your work but moving your sources to sourceforge might not be a smart idea, as this application is violating Sony's copyrights on their android applications.
I don't really see the problem, but some tight assed lawyers could see much...

You should probably keep a low profile and post on a less famous website.

I would love to have external dictionary support in Reader for Colordict (Goldendict). I have been looking into the decompiled code of the reader but don't have a clue (yet) how to decompile, edit those SO libraries.

I guess optimally I would provide the binaries as binary patches, like I only provide source code patches with my changes. I'd have to come up with a reasonably simple, multi-platform way of doing it though.

Have you done the reset button+power button thing? What happens then? SD recovery? The reader really shouldn't affect the boot process in any way.

I've been meaning to take a look at those bits, but haven't got around to doing it yet. Definitely interresting.

Is this a typo or do you really have the path set wrong? The correct path to reference the external fonts is
Code:
path="../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/"

Porkupan,

is it possible to add fonts to your fbreaderj? The stock fbreader does allow setting this (but has somehow a not screen filling layout).

Thx, Bardo

Here is some info about the Colordict/Goldendict API, which may become handy if you will look into it: http://socialnmobile.blogspot.com/20...evelopers.html

Thanks for your hard work!

I tried out the new home page; it now shows "recently read", rather than "recently added", but that's as far as things go. When I try to go to page 2, I get:

"Sorry, the application Home has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again".

I have been fiddling with it for an hour to no avail. Perhaps someone can explain where I went wrong? And where I go from here? Any way to get this functioning properly, and if not, how do I return to the way it used to be?
Thanks,
Glen

Okey Dokey, you can disregard my post above, as I have gotten everything kosher again. Not even sure what I did differently; (if anything) simply tried again and all is well. I am thinking the trouble lies with my seemingly too-loose USB connection, as I tend to be getting disconnected from the PC by just touching the wire!

Thanks for your patience with another mere rookie! Morkl, I for one really appreciate what you are doing... thank-you for sharing your expertise on this fine forum.

Glen

giosa - have you seen this thread? There might be something there you haven't tried.

Cheers,

Morkl: Do you think it's possible to disable/enable the touchscreen in reader with a buttoncombo? For example left and right turnpagebutton at the same time? Would be very usefull in some cases.
