If anything it's because you haven't made enough posts (I don't know the settings here but 10 is a common requirement).

It shouldn't work out of the box, the SoC (CPU) is different. You might be able to make it work though if you compile your own kernel. Seems kernel support for the Tolino Shine 3 was added last year.

Not sure why you'd want to that though: Tolino's Android-based platform seems like a much better choice for customization.

Best regards :-)
Both use different CPUs and are not compatible. Also, the equivalent is Kobo Libra H2o.

EDIT
I am an idiot, you're right. The Kobo Libra H2o is the equivalent of Vision 5.
Doesn't matter though, they still use different CPUs.

Thank you. Now I understand, but I don't know how to unblock the Tolino's Android. I've found the instruction:

https://allesebook.de/anleitung/toli...-video-978782/

but it seems that it works for the 12.1.0 firmware only and I've got an another firmware on my TS3.

The second reason is that on Kobo's Linux it is possible to instal the Vlasovsoft bundle. And Vlasovsoft's Cool Reader is IMHO the best e-book reader app ever done.

Regards :-)

Have you seen this thread (by me): Customizing the Tolino? It's all there.

I'm not familiar with that version but standard Cool Reader is available for Android. You can also check out this fork (haven't tried it personally but there's been a lot of recent development activity): https://github.com/plotn/coolreader/releases
