KOReader is a document viewer application, originally created for Kindle e-ink readers. It is then ported to Kobo and Android devices and now it comes to PocketBook's world. Various PocketBook models are reported to run KOReader fine with firmware versions from 4.4, 5.2 to 5.4. We are glad to know how it runs on your device.

Hi!

I tried KOReader on a Pocketbook 614 (aka: Basic 2) running firmware 4.4, but unfortunately it doesn't work. I'd be more than happy to help debugging the app.
I already tried starting the app over telnet, so that I could see if it printed some error message(s) to the standard output, but I got no error messages.

EDIT: will KOReader support non-touch PocketBook devices?

This is great news! I really like option for darkening text in pdfs and Scroll Mode. Very good app! But there are some problems: there is something wrong with touch control, it is very unresponsive - sometimes i have to hold my finger for more than a second or two for touch to get registered, and very often it is just missed. But overall app looks very fast at graphically intensive pdfs - this is something at which original PocketBook app is really bad. Thanks!

Fantastic news to hear KOReader is ported to PocketBook!

Tried it on PocketBook 626 aka PocketBook Lux 2 running firmware 4.4 and I can confirm it doesn't work. Maybe it's because firmware 4.4 use older libs; the majority is still using this firmware because it has better support for homebrew software. It would be great to make in run on this firmware also...

Could you post the content of "crash.log" file in "applications/koreader" directory? It has error message on what's wrong.

KOReader only works on touch devices for now.

Thanks for your report. A new preview build is uploaded to fix the tap unresponsive issue.

@ws64 Could you test it on PB Lux 2 with firmware version 5.2?
