Is the card autoexec function run when you insert the sd card ?
No. Well, kind of. The firmware update makes sure that any media with autorun.js file in its root folder gets that autorun.js run when it is first available. With internal memory, it means right after the boot. With SD/MS it presumably means when it is inserted, though I haven't tried it.

Quote:
So does it means that autoexec is in the card and the main mod of the firmware is the books by folder ?
Almost everything is on the card (or internal memory). Pretty much the only firmware modification is the ability to run an autorun.js file.

Quote:
Is it possible to combine this firmware with the foreignt language support for menus Spanish, German, French, ???
Yes. If you look at one of the earlier pages of this thread, I posted a guide on how to combine PRS Customizer (which supports languages) and this hack.

I didn´t try this yet but I imagine that the main problem would be to traslate the new option "books by folder", at least should not be a problem to make it work with this choice in english
Exactly.

i have removed the .noscan and then let the card get scanned. but when i go to read the book in the books in the books by folder menu it asks me to copy to the IM.

however if i go to books by title or books by author i can read it from there.

*got the books by folder to work now. i just used collection manager to create a collection and let it scan. then voila. i was able to read the books from the books by folders list.

Uhm, the problem is, card will be scanned before you'll get into advanced settings.
I know, but what I had in mind is you insert the card, wait 5 minutes for it to scan the first time, but then you can toggle the .noscan file so you don't have to wait in the future when you swap cards again. If I have to wait one time to get to the advanced settings, well I can live with that.

Actually "Books by Folder" was my only goal, when I've started developing it, but it ended up as a bit bigger project.

Localization is planned, though it probably won't be using built in code as in French firmware.

I see.

autorun.js is currently run only from internal memory's root.

thanks, I made it.

Nice. I can add you to developer list, so that you could commit the code yourself, if you want. (you'd need google account)

Well, it's taken a while to get round to it, but I've done it. Very pleased with the results too. Excellent job.

Pepak's combination method worked well,

Guys, I need your feedback regarding which featured do you miss most (besides fonts) in my firmware.

I am really interested in forcing the reader to use contents of the cache without matching the cache against local filesystem. I tried to get it to work this afternoon, but with a very limited success (that is, I got the functionality once but I don't know why it worked and couldn't repeat it anyway).

Accessible Fonts folder in internal memory is doable. Screenshots is easy.

Excuse me for not being all too helpful here, but at least let me express my deep appreciation for all your work. I really love to tinker around with stuff too, but in this case, my knowledge only comes so far.
I really am looking forward to the first beta or release.

Have a great week!

Yes. It's actually already in repository. (a dice icon)
