If you mean the install guide, it should but I would recommend using the guide for doing it with KSM. I have tried to keep them both up to date. I haven't seen much feedback about it with regard to the new device and firmware though.

There are many who find Koreader to be much better for reading PDFs. Both Coolreader and Koreader use the CR3 engine for many more formats than can be read using the stock readers, (I have a lot of PDB ebooks, for instance.)

The Kobo Start Menu (KSM7) brings a number of additional features, as well, (including some to aid the stock software). The Vlasovsoft launcher provides games and utilities, as well as Sergey's port of Coolreader. Koreader is loaded with features to work with calibre as well as Evernote, Zsync, and OPDS support.

The stock software, including Pocket support, is still there and working after adding the launcher and alternative readers.

Luck;
Ken

Any noticeable increase in speed? Is it easier to transfer things. Mainly reading epubs and pocket. I need to figure out the setting to convert Pdf or read them easier on the kobo glo

If you are not dealing with the Kobo database and its processing, that time is avoided.

Transferring ebook files from your PC to your device, for Koreader's or Coolreader's use is a simple file transfer. (Drag&Drop, if you want.) It is a good practice to create the file structure you want on your PC, as a directory & folders then just copy that to your device. A lot of people use calibre to manage their ebooks and it can also create a file structure on your device. I find it easy to transfer ebook files to my AuraHD from the calibre library on my PC using calibre's server/OPDS catalog, wirelessly. The USB cable works as well, of course.

Luck;
Ken

The wireless options I was describing are part of Koreader which is an addon reader. The first post of this thread provides a guide for installing all you need, but notice that I recommend that the newer guide be used. Both threads contain other useful information, like how to hide your library from the Kobo/Nickel processing.

Luck;
Ken

Hi,

is there a way to have something like the collections we have with Nickel with the alternative readers? With a folder-based approach I can have my books in exactly one folder (if I don't copy them), and with collection I can have a book in more than one at the same time?

Cheers, Joe

I guess a collection/shelf feature is just another way to have a listing of books, based of some criteria. You can do much the same with the search features in Koreader, searching the File Manager for words in a file name; and searching the calibre metadata, by browsing series or tags, or a word search.

I don't know how Coolreader handles such things.

Luck;
Ken

You would have to create a "port" of the code to make it so it could use the hardware.

This would something for the "Developer's Corner" but if the user could create "History" like folder/menus, they would do everything a "Collection" would, and more. You might even add to the "long press" options for File Manager entries; an option to add that book to a "Collection".

Just an idea.

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to use KOReader only for PDF and to keep the original reader for kepub/pockets articles ?

Thanks !

Adding the alternate readers has no impact on the original software. It is best though to create a separate "hidden" library for the alternate readers, to avoid any conflicts, and the kobo processing attempts for files Kobo can't handle but the alternate readers can. The first post includes info on how to hide your library from kobo's processing.

Luck;
Ken
