KOReader Open Shortcut and missing ProgressSync

Hey guys, i was able to successfully jailbreak my Kindle voyage 5.12.3 with the serial jb. I installed KUAL and all the extensions and also KOReader. Is it possible to set the KOReader as primary reader or do I also have to open KUAL,then KOReader menu and then Launch? I also read about somekind of native menu which shows all installed apps. Is something like this available also for the newer Kindles (Voyage) so you dont have to always open KUAL first?
Another KOReader related problem is that Progress Sync in missing in my menu. Can i manually install the plugin ?
I hope I dont disturb anybody and come up with already answered questions.
Have a great evening.

For opening books in KOReader from the main menu, install KPV Booklet. It is mentioned here, in the installation instructions.

Regarding other issues with KOReader, I think you would get faster solutions if you
a) search among the documentation, and b) search among existing reported issues, or create your own issue ticket. Responses there are faster because most of the contributors and active users are there.

KPVBooklet is not going to work on FW 5.12.x, so, you can forget about that bit. So KUAL it is .

Progress Sync is quite possibly contextual (i.e., it only appears where it makes sense. That may be in-document or in-filemanager only. Dunno, don't use it ).

@NiLuJe
Oh wow! Thank you very much for that insight about 5.12.x
Just out of curiosity, do you know what mechanism did Amazon break now? I mean, it seems like they are trying to isolate Kindle content as much as possible, starting with removal of support of active content .azw2 files..

That's (roughly) the same issue that KUAL had to deal with: obfuscated methods/classes in an already-undocumented private API.

Except KPVBooklet relies on much more internal gnarly stuff than KUAL.

Plus, general update behavior changes that may also have affected/broken some previous assumptions.

(Actual issues started much earlier than 5.12.x, FWIW).

Also, there's no active maintainer ^^.

Could I downgrade the software on a more compatible/stable version? I also experience problem with using the buttons on the voyage, for me only next page works and only when opening through KUAL, the booklet version doesn't recognize any presses.

Thanks. Yes you are I think the application specific questions are better at the development threads Thanks for the reference also

The Voyage buttons are a much murkier issue, completely unrelated to the FW version, and utterly specific to the Voyage.

I don't know if there's actually a way to get them to consistently behave (survey says no, though ;p).

Sidebar: You said Voyage, yet your profile's device info says PW3. We rely on that info being accurate .

Since you know how to do a serial port jailbreak, you can use the serial port to put any previous customer version you like on it, then use the serial port to do the jailbreak.

I have no idea whether page turn bittons behave differently on different firmware versions.

Do you, by chance, remember what versions started having real issues?
Or what keywords I should use to try to track them down in the issues list?
I am still currently on 5.9.7 thinking to start using KOReader :D

I think 5.9.x is when it broke.

Iirc, 5.8.11 is the last version where KUAL azw2. Mind, I recall having some issues with KPVBooklet even on 5.6.5 since I ended up uninstalling it and just going through KUAL+KOReader.

Yeah, I definitely remember things going wonky as early as 5.8.x.

5.5/5.6 might have been broken for a while, too, because that's when things started getting hairy in general ^^.

Also for everyone who can't find Progress Sync, first you have to open a document so the menu is visible

For specific firmwares, go to Amazon Update page for your device, copy the download link, paste into address bar, but change version numbers in the link before hitting Enter. E. g. 5.9.7

I am not sure about what version is better for KOReader though.
