KOReader on KOA2: Possible yet?

My apologies if this should be in the KOReader forum!

I have installed KOReader on my KOA2. It seems to be correctly installed, but when I tap "KUAL", then "KOReader", then "Start the filemanager", the display blinks but that's it.

How did I install everything?

Following these instructions, I installed the MR package installer on my KOA2. Then, I added coplate's patched version of the Update_KUALBooklet_v*_install.bin file to the mrpackages folder.

I ran ;log mrpi and everything seemed to install as expected.

I downloaded the latest KOReader nightly. (I also tried the newest stable version, with the same results.) I see KOReader as a menu item in KUAL, so I assume it is installed correctly.

I tap "start the filemanager", as I said previously, and just get one blink on the display.

Did I miss any crucial steps? Will KOReader even run yet on the KOA2? If anyone has succeeded in this, I'd appreciate your help.

@downeaster59: No, we need quite a few more bits and pieces to handle the KOA2.

Whith a bigger/annoyinger bit than usual being the screen, because the eInk driver was *significantly* updated. It's both annoying to update, and may require some severe refactoring of bits of KOReader I just spent over a week tweaking >_<".

It's non-trivial, and it requires a bit of digging from someone with a device for the "usual" HW bits (battery, light, etc.). And, ideally, a dev with the device for the screen handling, because that's going to be fuuuun.

@ NiLuJe: Thanks for the info. At least, I know that it wasn't some goof on my part!

I understand that the KOA2 presents some unique challenges. No problem. In the meantime, there's always calibre!

There may be some basic support coming to a nightly soon, since the screen handling hurdle turned out to be slightly less annoying to deal with than I initially thought.

I'll give you a shout when the code lands in an actual nightly .

(FWIW, Here's the base PR, and there'll be a matching KO PR once this one lands).

Thanks so much! From your previous post, it sounded like doing this for the KOA2 would be a serious PITA. Maybe not quite so serious after all - or maybe you (and others) just enjoy a challenge. Thanks for keeping me informed as well.

When I initially looked into it, back in November, I didn't have much time, and it had been quite a while since I'd touched the relevant KOReader code.

I was in a hurry, and I mistakenly remembered the code as not modular enough.


Fast-forward to now, after I spent two weeks reworking that code for unrelated reasons, so I'm now once again quite familiar with it, and, yeah, not as bad as I initially thought . Working on FBInk in the meantime, as well as seeing how Kobo handled the hardware update also helped .
