I'm successful with Kobo Glo, and now running PerfectViewer.
The magnetic sleep doesn't work. Is there any workaround?

Does anyone understand Russian? For auraHD seems to be a dual boot using the external SD:

I understand. Moreover, I wrote that post on the e-book forum. Android is on the external SD and will boot if backlight button is pressed when the device is been turning on. If backlight button isn't pressed the standard firmware will boot from the internal SD. By the way, the device doesn't need to open.

Wow!
This is amazing!
Any translations that I can add to the first post?
Any instructions or tips in English?
Is there any chance to do that with a Glo?

Yes, I can do the translation of instructions. But I've already got a warning for a link to the SD card image with Android, and this manual has the same links. So I'll post a translation somewhere and give a link to it.

Thanks to the translation of angor00, I installed android on the external SD of auraHD with dual boot.

But I like more the kobo firmware.

I tried with the instructions for the AuraHD, but using a Glo, and it doesn't work.

Do you have some different patches for that?

This method seems to work flowlessy on my aura HD.

I have a doubt just about what should work and what should not work.

Is there a way to make wifi work, or to have internet connection anyway?


P.S. Now I have an Aura HD with patched 3.1.1, Night mode, Koreader and Launcher. At start I can select Android or default boot.... after this, thanks to ADVboot I can select Nickel or Koreader..... Great!
