The best you can do is install AppMOnster, on your android phone, backup the application and transfer the apk from you phone (appmonster2/backup) to T1.

In Settings -> Applications you'll also find a button for moving apps to SD which doesn't work either.

But if you find a solution, please post it to the wiki

Thank you, uboot.
I added already a few things to the wiki and will continue doing so. :-)

Hello, in my unit "READER" there is no folder "data", is that possible?
My PRS-t1 is rooted .......
Thanks

Maybe this: http://juanjosec.blogspot.com/2009/0...-eabi-arm.html offers a solution for more space to store apps? I haven't tried it myself, and the promised mini-howto never seemed to have appeared.

Good question ; I thought that the .cr3 directory stored on the user partition should be enough, but it isn't... at least not in my case.

Although it's not difficult to reconfigure everything, it can be a PITA...

I successfully rooted my new PRS-T1, though after a failed install of an apk with not much space left and a reboot it got stuck showing the revolving arrows after the "Opening book..." screen. I had to restore the system with the sd card rescue image, which after a few tries worked (never got the rescue mode right), but I got the vanilla system back. First of all, did somebody else have a similar problem?

My next thought was, that if the problem was the space on the system partition, I'm just going to use the tip how to resize it. However, it seems that the steps on the wiki are just a copy of the google translation of the russian thread. They don't make sense completely, so I have no idea what the merging of the block device with ebook_msc has to do with it.

Apart from that almost everything worked like described. Except that I didn't use the internal but the external sd card to copy the tar file, so I did not need to reboot the PRS twice. Anyway after flashing the system partition and rebooting, I get stuck at the revolving arrows again, but this time not indefinitely but more in a boot loop like way, so it's the arrows revolving, screen refresh and the arrows again... even though if I go into recovery mode and connect with the serial console I see that the flashing of the system partition worked.

Did I do something wrong there, do I need to root it first (I can't see why?). Or is there some problem doing it from an external card? Is ext4 the right filesystem for the system partition?

Any help is very much appreciated! Oh and thanks for all the work and explanations already done, it's making the device so much better already! Would be great if the resizing also works....

Which tar file are you speaking of?

For rooting, no external sd car is needed. To clean everything up, restore everything with external sd, then remove sd and root the device:

0.) Unzip minimal-root.zip (be sure to get latest version from Nov 28, older ones contain bugs) and apply changes according to wiki if you want.
1.) Connect via usb to computer
2.) Run flash_reader.bat
3.) T1 should reboot automatically and everything should be fine.

Regarding resizing - I simply copied the info from translated Russian thread in hope that somebody will try it and post updated info I haven't found time to resize my T1 sys partition yet.

The tar file was with regard to the system resizing. The rooting worked all fine, even from a linux machine, except that I messed something up after rooting and restored everything from SD, so no problem there.

What didn't work was the resizing (btw, google translate messed up all the command line options and file paths, it should be "tar -xzf" and not "tar-xzf", if I get it done I might rewrite that part in the wiki).

I was able to follow the instructions for resizing, and using the serial console I was even able to make sure that the system partition was resized after following the instructions.

However, the reader got stuck in the revolving arrows loop as I described. Therefore I wanted to know if anybody else succeeded in resizing the partition?

I just mentioned the tar file and sd card because I deviated from the translated description which tells you to use the internal sd to create a tar file of your system partition, then create a filesystem image on a linux desktop which is slightly larger, put the contents of the tar in there, and then put that back on the internal sd and then dump it on the device holding the system partition. Which is not exactly what I did, I just used the external sd as a intermediate storage for the tar and img file, but I cannot see how that should have changed anything critically.

Ok, I see. When I put the googlemistranslated stuff into the wiki, I tried to remove all errors, but obviously overlooked some.

Should be fixed now: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...histicated_Way
