Hi!! the image was great, I saved it in size 1404 x 1872 on Snagit.
Thanks!! It would be nice if we could have the cover of the book we're currently reading, but since it's not possible (for now) at least we can have fun exchanging pretty pictures!

Try KOReader for Android, it has an option to save current book’s cover as an image file, which you can then select in system as wallpaper.
You can get KOReader on F-Droid or GitHub (pick apk for arm): https://github.com/koreader/koreader/releases

I thought the stock app did covers for the lock screen? I don't use any of the stock apps on my likebooks so idk.

Latest update broke the standby!!
Every time standby is called, the device reboots! I can power off but not while plugged in.
I did try a factory reset but it came back with the latest update already present.
I hope the boyue engineers are working on this!!

By standby do you mean sleep or that when you turn it off (shut down) and the attach it to power it turns on? If the turns off then attach power that is by design and should have always done that. It needs to charge if it's super dead then it will boot the os and continue to charge. I'm pretty sure all boyue devices do this.

The update is "BYRead-V3.1.1-2021072816". It causes sleep/standby mode to set off a reboot.

They intially also advertised the update on their official Twitter account but have since deleted the tweets.

I emailed their "support" for a fix or a rollback to an earlier version - no answer, of course.

I have no problems with this update, but I received it OTA.

Sleep. It seems I'm not the only one.
This update came OTA so I clicked "Sure, why not?"

Also received mine OTA. Wouldn't even know where to download the update file for a manual update - I think they only occasionally post mega dl links on Twitter, if prompted.

That's good lets see if they actually do it. Seems like a huge testing oversite.
