Lightbulb Override epub metadata/cover [DRM]

I've recently replaced my Kindle Paperwhite 5 with Pocketbook Era just so I can use Legimi which is a subscription service where you can read unlimited amount of ebooks for a monthly fee.

Ebooks are fetched using a built-in Legimi app on Pocketbook and it creates:
- Large epub file in /Legimi/ folder
- Very small epub file in /system/cache/Legimi/metadata/

Both of these files seem to be either encrypted or have a DRM thus I am unable to edit metadata of these ebooks. Unfortunately series name is not populated by Legimi and ebook covers tend to be of very poor quality so I would like to update them.

Is there a way I can override the metadata of these ebooks?

If you go to the /system folder on you PB you can find a sql database. I believe the book details table has that data

Modifying the explorer-3.db file in /System/explorer-3 as @jrw174 mentioned worked!
