Haven't run any updates yet, so since you're bringing this up, I'm guessing that's what I must do?
I was not really sure, but looking at it again the rooting trick relies on fairly new feature (its one of the most recent rpc api calls). Seems like firmware 5.20.x firmware is needed, perhaps 5.19.x could work too.

You can just run OTA over wifi. In case you don't have wifi, download http://download.pocketbook-int.com/f....1010_user.zip put SWUPDATE.BIN to root folder over usb, and then power on the reader while holding up/down buttons simultaneously. Beware that unlike OTA, this manual update can wipe apps and books stored on the reader, it's a bit akin to factory reset in addition to fw update.

Cool, used it (only step1 version 6) in Touch HD FW5.20.1527 to export secure partition:
/mnt/secure/su /bin/tar cf - /mnt/secure/* | gzip -c - > /mnt/ext1/secure.tar.gz
Working flawlessly on my device.

Edit:
And if the Coolreader startup script ist adapted to run Coolreader as root, we get access to all the nice and bought dictionaries back, which are normally only accessible by the pocketbook reader.
in:
/ext1/system/bin/cr3-pb.app
replace:
$WORK_DIR/system/share/cr3/bin/cr3-pb.app "$1" > $WORK_DIR/system/cr3-pb.normal.log 2>
with
/mnt/secure/su $WORK_DIR/system/share/cr3/bin/cr3-pb.app "$1" > $WORK_DIR/system/cr3-pb.normal.log 2>

succeeded on PB631 too, FW 5.20.1527. Still figuring out what to make out of it, but yeah, cool!

Hi, I have an Inkpad X and I am trying to solve an issue (see https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/5887). Unfortunately I don't have any experience hacking PocketBook devices though I use Linux at work so I at least know my way around it. Seems like I need to get shell access to execute a strace command and copy file from the /usr directory. Is there some easier, non-invasive way of doing that or is your jailbreak the only way?

Please try the attached device.lua with your Koreader which is confirmed to be working on the Inkpad X. My quick guess regarding your error is that you probably used a wrong resolution.

Edit: Regarding the other questions, that can probably done with pbterm, which should be downloadable somewere here.

The same as before (posted in the GitHub issue). Inkpad X is supposed to have 227 DPI. 300 is incorrect.

Inkpad X has the same resolution has Inkpad 3.
Doesn't matter, you were asked to provide some files and logs from for the Koreader guys. For this you don't need root. Just use the attached app.
