[iOS] Connect to Content Server won't download on other than default library

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 18:21:07 GMT

On CC iOS When I try to connect to Content Server, I get the list of books, I can switch Calibre Libraries. When I select a Calibre library other than the default, downloads don't work. When I long touch on a book, the little animation starts, but nothing ever happens. When when I do a side swipe and click on Download, same thing. When I short touch to go to metadata page, nothing happens, no metadata. All this works fine in the Android CC, only iOS has this issue with other libraries. Of course we REALLY NEED DOWNLOAD ALL! By the way, it would be GREAT to select the default library! Unfortunately on my setup, my cookbook collection always comes up as the default, I would love for CC to remember which library I want as default (would be nice on both Android and iOS).

Nothing that even today does not stop what serves the button that has the pencil of the boox max letter. I've squeezed it everywhere but it does not do anything, so why did they put it on? some end will have but it seems that it is impossible to know what it is for. Does anyone know?

Vast rewrites when importing a wrongly cased author

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 16:00:24 GMT

When I have an author (e.g., "Asimov, Isaac") in my library, and I import a book that has the same author name but with differing case, e.g. "ASIMOV, Isaac", Calibre interprets this as an author name change and updates the filenames on disk and all existing opf files of books of that author. This can make importing a folder of books pretty slow. Is there a way to avoid this? Running Calibre 2.78.0 on Fedora 25.

Question on reverting Firmware on Onyx Book Max

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:59:05 GMT

Hi everyone, I have the first version of the Onyx book Max. I've updated it to the lastest firmware this week (1.8.2.) and since then, my computer won't detect the device (both in Windows and MacOS, which worked perfect before the upgrade). Thankfully, I can still charge books on it by removing and loading the SD Card, but it's a bit of a nuisance. Does anyone know if there's a way to revert back to the original firmware? And where I could download it from? Many thanks! Pedro

PRS-T1 Anybody still using a rooted T1?

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 13:36:34 GMT

Foreword: I'm quite happy with my Sony Readers, so suggestions that I buy something else will be ignored. Cheers! So, I am currently running the modified home screen and reader on my PRS-T1 but am considering rooting. Is anybody still using a rooted T1?

Unpack and rebuild the DPT-RP1 upgrade firmware

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 10:32:47 GMT

Hi guys! Before, i found something in the jailbroken DPT-RP1. Now, I pull out the FactoryReset.pkg and some scripts. (FactoryReset.pkg,, dec.key, sig.key) It means that, we could likely modify the .pkg file and make an upgrade. For now, I can unpack the .pkg file, the problem is how to rebuild a modified .pkg? Unpack command: Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- If you run it directly, may get an error likes this: Code: --------- ./ 50: ./ arithmetic expression: expecting primary: "" --------- It’s about the problem of anim section, remove anim stuff in the, we don’t need it. Just delete the whole of this part: Code: --------- ######################################## # start animation for package check ######################################## --------- And then run the command again Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- Or you can run the script which I have remove the anim stuff Code: --------- FactoryReset.pkg out out/sig.key out/dec.key --------- Finally, you can get some files in the “out” folder (FwUpdater aes256.key iv sig.dat) The “FwUpdater” folder contains the resources. So,the problem now, is how to rebuild the resources back into a .pkg? All files has been uploaded to github Welcome to discuss together! My email: My skype:

spell checking with two or more languages

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 10:23:29 GMT

I've got the following problem, when I use the spell checking tool in the editor: In the spell checking tool incorrectly spelled words are shown in connection with their assigned language. When I notice, e.g., that a French word is considered to be English, I double click on such a word in the spell checking tool, the editor jumps to the word in the text, and I can mark it with, e.g., .... During this process, it can happen that a French word occurring several times in the text appears in both French and English text portions. However, when I double click on such an "English" word in the spell checking tool to mark the remaining words as French words, the editor not only jumps to the words in the English text portions, but also jumps to the words in the French text portions.

PW2 Help on SERIAL JB Hardware

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:20:02 GMT

Hello everyone! Greetings from Colombia! I'm trying to JB my PW2 I'm not a overly technical person (only know very basic electronics and coding), but I'm confident I can achieve the Serial Jailbreak following the posted instructions. However, adquiring exactly the identical hardware described in some threads might be a challenge in my country (I usually have to wait months to get things shipped from overseas). I have this hardware laying around and I'm wondering if it could do the trick. *Option 1:* - NTC CHIP SoC Board: This one has UART and a 1.8v pin, but never used it as a UART "client" for other devices. * * *Option 2:* - Chinese PL2303TA USB-to-RS232 I bought this one to play around with an arduino board that I'm still waiting to arrive, so havent had the chance to use it, let alone know how to be certain it will communicate over 1.8v instead of 3.3v (in the spects it says its compatible with both voltages). * *¿Could someone point out which would be a better fit?* On a side note, would the Serial method work on Firmware Thanks all for any help you can provide!

Kobo Touch is stuck on one page

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 02:11:07 GMT

I was gifted a Kobo Touch that worked fine for about 5 days and then got stuck on one page. It's been there ever since. What I've tried in vain so far: Holding the slide button to the right on top which should start up the device. Holding the slide button to the right while simultaneously keeping the home button on front of the device pressed down which should factory reset the device. Reset the device with reset button/hole at the back of the device. Connect the device to my computer with a USB cable. None of these actions have worked. The screen does not appear to be damaged though ( see photo), so now I'm waiting until the device's battery is fully discharged hopefully the device will reboot then. Ideas are most welcome. Thanks in advance.

What's an Adverb?

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:39:14 GMT

I'm pretty good at using words, but I'm not very good at knowing what to call them, so I'm starting this thread. My first question is "What's an adverb, and how do I recognize one?" Here's a sample phrase where you can point out the adverb and explain what it does. Sage didn't have time to feel bad about killing the big flier.

Any better way to open multiple files?

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:16:29 GMT

For whatever reason, Calibre doesn't let me open multiple files at the same time. I have to click to open each file. Unfortunately, Calibre also has the newly-opened filed open to the front. So I have to click on one file, click back into Calibre, click on the next file, click back into Calibre, click on the next file... If there's some way to keep newly-opened files in the background, should I look for a Calibre setting (haven't found one) or a reading app setting (haven't found on in Clearview)? Thanks!
