The setup for my M96C plus

Recently, my boox M92 stopped working abruptly, and I had to replace it with
another boox M9x from the Gernan seller. After several days of work, including
reading posts in this forum,I think I am almost done with the configuration of
the new M96C plus. Though there are still some minor functions I would like to
add to this new device, I am pretty satisfied with the setup now.

First, use it as a second monitor of the laptop. Two steps:

Step One, install a VNC server-- TightVNC in my laptop
Step Two, install a VNC viewer-- bVNC from google play in my M96C

Comments:

1, I want to thank Feher et al.
(http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=173792) for the programs for
M92 as a second monitor, without the experience on M92, I would not have done
it so fast on M96C.

2. About the above Step One, you may install any other VNC server. But I did
not try any other VNC server personally.

3. About the above Step Two for the VNC view, I tried several ways, and ended
up this app.

a) The previous M92 VNC viewer requires a Java SE, and I could not find one
for M96c. So it did not work for me.

b) I tried two other VNC viewers from google play, and found out this bVNC
viewer runs the fastest.

c) I had to google a picture of the setup page, becauce I could not see the
setup page in my M96 clearly.

4. Using experience:

a) It's much more stable.In M92, I have to connect to the PC by USB wire, and
the wire broke from time to time. Now, the connection is wi-fi, so it's much
more stable.

b) The speed is bearable for me. Though not fastisfactory, it's being used
for most of my typing, including this post.

c) I can tap the M96C screen to move the mouse. So I also use it for internet
browsing. But the touch screen is not very precise, so it's hard to do things
such as selecting texts, or resizing a window.

Second, install a rotation app to rotate the screen freely. One step:

Step One, install Adaptive Rotation Lock from google play.

Comments: Before you read a book, you may need to reset the rotating option to Stock
Auto. Otherwise, the rotation may not work properly after opening a book to read.

Third, install a status bar app to access frequently used apps. One step:

Step One, install Notification toggle from google play.

Commnts: I would also like to remove some apps from the bottom taskbar in the
home screen, and replace these apps with some other frequently used apps. But I
have not found a way yet. I wish some one can tell me how to do it.

my PC.

Lastly, I wish somebody could tell me how to improve the speed on reading the
external SD card.

It's so slow that I seldom connect my M96C to the computer by USB.

I've read the post by kuskro
(http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=255435), it seems there is
some hope. But I have not found the precise and clean steps to do it yet. If
someone has figured it out, please tell me how to do it.

Maybe it's also worth mentioning that I also installed the Dolphin web browser
to read html format files, and the GoldenDict for large Chinese Dictionaries
such as "汉典".
