OpenInkPot for the Hanlin V5??

Does anyone know if the OpenInkPot update for the Hanlin V3 will work with the V5? Has anyone been able to look at the V5's firmware?

And for that matter, what about the BeBook 2 with it's different key layout?

I don't know the internal hardware of the V5, but if it's any different from the V3 (processor architecture or whatever), it's the same as porting OI to another different platform and that's not easy. Just look at the difficulties in porting it to the Cybook or 505.

Even if the processor is the same, the screen certainly isn't, and it's going to have another controller. Only that little change is a lot of work of hacking the source code.

the screen is exactly the same from a port view (same number of pixels) however the controller is different resulting in a different driver and 8 gray scale levels. Partial screen updates in defined regions is now supported but could possibly be ignored for now. The processor is the same only faster. They keys are mostly the same but the right size has a scroll-wheel. Depending on the API availabilty and documentation from Jinke this could be easy or hard.

Should be easier. Cybook is too limited and 505'th hardware is without docs. Driver for V5 controller is already written, it just needs GPIO mappings.

Well, good news for the potential new users of the V5 then.

I second that. I will probably by a second V5 if Ink pot is launched for it.
Can test drive it for any programmer....too bad I cannot do that....

V3+ source code has been requested from Hanlin. Due to similarity to V5 it might result into working V5 port, though no promises yet.

Whoops. Not from Hanlin, from BeBook.

I'm about to get Hanlin V5 from China and would be ready to do translations for Finnish language. Is there any update on V5 support of OI?

It's not supported and there are no kernel hackers currently working on kernel for that model.

Oh well, guess I'll just settle for the Bebook Mini firmware...
