The home button acts as the volume key. Hence, press the home key while off and insert the USB cable.

I suspected such, but I'm glad for the first hand info. Thanks.

Do you mean the back button on the front? I thought this had only two physical buttons - back button and power button.

The back button acts as a home button as well on long-press

For me there was no need to power off the device first, just plugged it in and held the home and power button a few seconds until it showed up in RKBatchtool.

Okay so I have a question. I have a jailbroken PW3 that I use epub with KOreader and don't use any of the kindle app stuff on it. I need a frontlight as I always use my PW3 on about lvl 16 brightness. My question is will this be good for installing chrome (can be slow just need it to get epubs on internal storage) and Moon+reader pro. Also I like the form factor of the PW3 is the T63/S to slow a device to get this kind of setup as well? All my other devices are android so i'm very familiar with using the os. Next question since its Android 4.2 does it let you make a pattern lock for the lock screen?

Yep, chrome is very usable on the likebook plus, this won't be any problem.

I'm guessing it's similar to the kindle browser, both devices have 512mb ram right? Btw can't you download files using the kindle browser? If that works maybe stick to the pw3, it has better build quality and battery life going for it.

You can only set a password by default but there are apps that do this.

I take it these are the same device if they are T80S but IDK what firmware they have that would mean you can or can't put the play store on it.

Yes, the pictures are of the t80 but it says in the description that the item being sold is the t80s. The play store is installed on all firmwares afaik

Ah cool, I noticed they all come from same place in the US so all the sellers are getting them from the same warehouse imported. So I grabbed one. Now I was wondering if there is an old thread comparing decent flip cases that don't go wonky with sleep magnets ect. The PW3 browser could not open the menus I needed to download files and the skipstone one was way to buggy and could not zoom out pages. I also have glaucoma so staring at my smaller phone already is bad enough, I figured the extra inche will really help relax my eyes but will see. Thanks for your advice BTW.

Wanted to chime in and say I got the reader and it even came with an oem variant case which I was not expecting. It is so much easier on my eyes and works just as I wanted it to, there are some gripes but they don't effect my use case. I want to do a review later vs the PW3 and just in general after I have used it for a while but so far I could not be happier. Here's a quick pic of my setup on moon plus vs koreader on the PW3. So much more room for text and also room for the proper spacing of paragraphs.

Hi all,
this not so the right thread but I be on searching for newer or older firmware.

I'm looking for my T65s JDRead Venus for new Firmware.
I have same problems because the apps in the german language mode, are mixed with chiniese. So I cant this not use. It helps a little when I change to english, that is very good without chiniese, but without Google Translator I be very nervos.
I became an other idea. What is happend by a downgrade to a older firmware?
My setting say: build nb.:V1.0.0-2018041822, Model nb.: Likebook T65A and android 4.4.2
Anybody have better ideas or can say me where I find a update for FW? (or older one)
Thanks
framorg
