Just a heads up.
I wrote the likebook shop about an SDK to make use of the screen refresh and the brightness in apps and they replied this:

Yes!

Do not trust companies that are currently violating free software licenses. In particular they need to release the sources of:

- the kernel
- its main reader (based on FBReaderJ)
- its pdf backend (based on mupdf)

IMHO they won't release a shit, and even if they release an sdk they are still violating a lot of software licenses.

So please, do not buy!

I understand and don't disagree but I've already bought mine and I hadn't heard of this issue/problem.

So I hope they do release it. And I hope they get their affairs in proper order as well.

Amazing, another tech company from mainland China engaging in technical or IP theft. Right down there with Huawei.

As you can see nothing was released. Think about it before buying a Likebook
