Question ePub Covers on PW3 JB

Dear Friends of MR,

I'm a new owner of a PW3 for 2 weeks.

I've jailbreaked successfully the device with the lasted versions available here in the forum. I've installed KUAL, MRI, Python, many extensions for kual (I've played chess, mines, kterm, librariansync (collections) ), koReader, screansaver hack, fonts, usbnet. Everything is working really fine.

The only thing that couldn't figure out is how to display epub cover in kindle

Cover images are not displayed when sideload ePub files (without convert) to /mnt/us/documents with Calibre or Manually.

I've all my ePubs in Calibre, if i send it to Kindle converting to mobi or azw3 the book covers are displayed correctly.

I would like to have only ePub books in my Kindle with its cover and only use koReader.


I'll appreciate any help...

Kind regards,
CM

Uploading Screenshots just in case...

I have a doubt: is this a normal behavior or is a issue on my eBooks?

Since they are considered docs not books, you may or may not get a cover.

I've tried a lot of ePubs and none of them has cover.

Sorry but docs typically do not have covers.

All the 'docs' I've emailed via Calibre show with a cover. I don't do anything special.

I think you are sending ePubs that are converted to mobi or awz automatically.
This kind of features works fine for me. All EPubs converted to mobi or awz display its cover correctly.
The things i want to get is just send ePubs (to be readed with koReader) to my PW3 without convert it and get the cover displayed in the kindle Home screen.


Kind regards and Happy new year to All!
