Proven Method to Run Koreader on NGP

KOReader is a document viewer for eink devices. The formats it supports include PDF, DjVu, XPS, CBZ, FB2, PDB, TXT, HTML, RTF, CHM, EPUB, DOC, MOBI, and ZIP files.

To me, it's THE best PDF reader on NGP (because it reflows scanned PDF files).

Here the method to install it on NGP which I have personally tested:

1. First of all, you need to root NGP and put a folder called "koreader" under root.
2. Extract attached "patch.lua" file under "koreader" folder.
3. Install this stable version of Koreader.
https://github.com/koreader/koreader....11-stable.apk
4. Restart NGP (you may need to restart more than once if it shows black screen).

You can also change fonts of Koreader here:
data/data/org.koreader.launcher/files/fonts/

File Type: zip patch.zip (384 Bytes, 352 views)

I tried these instructions, but koreader keeps crashing. Can you clarify what you mean by "under root"? I tried creating the directory under "/" and under "/root", but it gets removed on reboot.

@thinredline, thanks for your work. Do you mind sending those patches to upstream github repo? We would like to merge this into our master branch.
