ICARUS e-ink readers

There does not seem to be a development forum for the ICARUS e-ink readers.
http://www.icarusreader.com/products

Anyone interested in modifying these devices?

Notes:
* They are also Linux devices (and the image bins are not "Amazon Garbled")
* No trace found of source code bundles being posted. (I have contacted the manufacturer on this subject already.)

Icarus isn't actually the manufacturer. They just put their brand on hardware which was originally developed by a Singapore based firm.

Open Inkpot would be a nice improvement on the original firmware, only that project appears to have gone quiet.

Thanks for the info.
Still, I will leave the question open.

You do not say which device you mean.
For example, as far as I know, what they call "eXcel (E1050BK)" is just a rebranded "Onyx Boox M92" -> see MobileRead Forums > E-Book Readers -> Onyx Boox

It is poster's choice to mention their interest, if any.

My request for links to their source code bundles seems to have fallen into their bit-bucket.
*AND*
The onyx-international source code resources seem to be off-line (at least now).

So much for that "brain fart"
