Install an android launcher, better if it is optimized for e-ink, like https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=320940

Install KOReader and launch it from your new launcher.

Probably you can install apks on user storage too, with
Code:
adb install pakage.apk
but new installed applications won't be shown on the original launcher.

If you get an error installing with adb install then you should push your apps to /system/app or /system/priv-app but I hope there is no need to do that.

Thank you very much for taking the time to help me,I really appreciate it.

What I forgot to mention is that I'm using nova launcher (2015 version by nightboy) and I see koreader icon after pushing the apk to /system/app/ but it fails to open saying it has stopped working or something else. Do you think changing the launcher is going to make a difference?
Btw I will try with adb install command but I highly doubt it'll work because as I said they have locked/limited the ability to install apps....

In that case you need to copy over the libraries, see https://github.com/koreader/android-...ment-520148127

Quote:
If you place the app in /system/app libraries go in /system/lib or /vendor/lib
if you place the app in /system/priv-app/koreader libraries go in system/priv-app/koreader/lib/{arm,x86}
(I have no idea why Android doesn't just do that, but whatever…)

It throws back this:
Quote:
Performing Push Install
koreader.apk: 1 file pushed. 2.9 MB/s (32371441 bytes in 10.626s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/koreader.apk
Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_INVALID_APK]
And I tried copying the libraries to /system/lib and /vendor/lib but no success either.

Btw my Android version is 4.2 and my device is a rk3026, 6 inch 220 dpi and 1ghz dual core cpu.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, it's Android is locked to prevent app installation by the vendor... So the only solution seems to be installing with the /system/app method since I want to keep the Original Rom....

Btw I Ran a logcat on KOReader and attached it below if you're kind enough to take a look.

thanks,

You could try resigning the .apk Not knowing what "they have locked/limited the ability to install apps" means it terms of how they actually implemented it. This would be an easy thing to try. I just use this one: EasyApkDisassembler.V1.3.2 to sign the .apk.



Luck;
Ken

The error:

The next step to try: https://github.com/koreader/android-...ment-522134962.

Please move the feedback to github to avoid duplication,

You brought up something very interesting, Thanks! But I didn't get most of it, how re-signing the apk could help us figure things out?
