FBReader for more than FB2 with BeBook firmware

Is there any way to use CoolReader/CREngine/FB2Reader for files other than FB2 and RTF with BeBook stock firmware? ie is there any way to edit the file associations?

BeBook's firmware uses that reader only for FB2 and RTF, while LBOOK's firmware also uses it for TXTs (which is why I installed LBOOK's firmware on one of my BeBooks).

This is as far as I have learnt until now, WARNING::total_newbie()

1. Unpack the bundle of firmware
then do this
./ V3update.bin ./hanlin

2. The result is a number of files
~/hanlin > ls -latr
total 54588
-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 1048576 May 5 08:48 zImage
-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 46137344 May 5 08:48 root.fs
-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 6291456 May 5 08:48 ro.fs
drwxr-xr-x 10 build build 4096 May 5 08:48 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 240000 May 5 08:48 logo
-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 2097152 May 5 08:48 jffs2.fs
drwxr-xr-x 2 build build 4096 May 5 08:48 .

3- You should mount these ISO images like this:
sudo mount -t cramfs -o loop root.fs /media1

then you can see the contents.
assuming that you change something you can recreate the ISO again like this
mkfs.cramfs /media2 root.fs

4- Again recreate the V3Update.bin file using mkv3update --help
you can download that from

Reading Openinkpot documents helps:
