Could you make a script for changing button shortcut for me?

Because I do not know programming, I cannot change button shortcut.
For example, I want to assign CF-card to news.
I guess it will not be difficult to expert.

Thanks.

AFAIK, the attached scripts should do the trick.

For connecting the news button to the compactflash slot, use the script
newsbutton2cf.sh

To undo the previous script, that is, for re-connecting the news button to the newspapers folder, use the script
newsbutton2newspapers.sh

Hope it works (have not tried it...). You will need to have installed the sh exec support package; if you don't have it, request it here: http://developer.irexnet.com/

The script does work - thank you - though it still says "Newspapers" at the top of the screen.

No way to change that, I'm afraid.

Should it not link to the newspapers directory on the CF card rather than the root dir?

eg:
ln -s /mnt/cf/newspapers /opt/content/newspapers

instead of

ln -s /mnt/cf /opt/content/newspapers

Is it posible to assign the news button to (for example) flip pages, or any other button. If so, how could be done? and would it be dangerous to the Iliad?. Unfourtunately i have no formation or skills to do this (i even don´t know if it is doable?)

Thanks a lot.

Ah that makes more sense, I guess I should sign up for the shell hack so I can see these things for my self

This would be a great option to have.

Another non-programmer here. Thanks for this script, Antartica. Could the News button point to the MMC card instead?

Of course X-D.

Attached is an upgraded package, with more scripts:
newsbutton2cf.sh for connecting the news button to the compact flash slot
newsbutton2cf.sh for connecting the news button to the SD/MMC slot
newsbutton2usb.sh for connecting the news button to the USB-stick port
newsbutton2newspapers.sh to restore the original connection to the newspapers folder

Hope that covers all the needed functionality. I would never though that a two-line script would be so gladly received

Maybe you could help Tribble by writing another 2-liner one that moves Settings and Profiles to the end of the Device Manager?

All-in-one-Package with Contentlister GUI.
Script recognizes the directory [on MMC, CF, USB] - in root or subfolder - you want to link to. All 4 buttons are included.

contents of readme.txt in zip-file:

...................
Because you want to hack iLiad's news/books/docs/notes button without any risks.
You want to link a self choosen directory to a button.


:: Needed steps for news button hack::
......................................
[1] Copy the folder link_news_button_2_CF_MMC_USB to a directory which you want to link to the news button.
[2] Insert CF, MMC, or USB stick in iLiad & navigate to your choosen folder.
[3] Click on the entry "Link CF, MMC, or MMC to news button"
[4] Happy news button pressing. ;-)
