Overdrive and Kobo Aura One

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:37:20 GMT

My Kobo Aura one stopped working with Overdrive about two software updates ago. I can sign into Overdrive with my Kobo but I can't browse or search. I get nothing. It's useless at this point. I've reset my device and signed out/in to Overdrive numerous times. If I check out a book from Overdrive I have to manually do it from a website and copy it over. It's seriously broken and buggy. Is it working for you? Have you had similar problems? Sean

Multicore processor

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 05:04:27 GMT

Which Onyx devices use a multicore processor? I thought the C67ML was the only one, but I see that also the Kepler Pro does. Note: most/many Onyx devices seem to use "Freescale i.MX 6SoloLite" processors; more capable processors (such as "i.MX 6DualLite") not only have reduced delays through the multicore but also have extra features like 3d acceleration, which is required by some software (not necessarily 3d, just graphic accelerated). Can anyone share comparative experience of single core vs. multicore?

Synchronization of notes for sideloaded books

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:02:36 GMT

If I sideload AZW3 files via USB and add some notes to them with Whispersync enabled, will those notes be saved to cloud? Or do I have to send the files via Kindle email?

What format best for hyphenation?

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 18:49:23 GMT

I didn't know whether to post it here or in Calibre thread, but here it is - I've switched from Kobo to Kindle, and wanted to make sure my Polish (and English too) ebooks are hyphenated. I've been doing hyphenation with Hyphenate This! in Calibre for Kobo, but am not sure if that works the same way for Kindles. I'm not that much aware of all formats used in Kindles, does hyphenation work for all the formats then (MOBI, AZW3, I've heard of KFX?) and do I have to upload an ebook to Kindle in a specific format for hyphenation to work?

Bookari & Overdrive library ebooks

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 17:31:17 GMT

Bookari premium is supposed to be able to borrow & read library books; not true with the "latest" version as per 9/20/2017. I have re-installed Bookari/Mantano as to be able to use different fonts & color schemes & control other than what the Overdrive app allows. When downloading the Overdrive book from the local public library, Bookari will not accept the ebooks as "the file format is not recognized"! The Aldiko app is able to download the books; but it also has other problems as in the book cover & title may not be shown for some books which, I think, has a hi-rez cover; a problem that existed for years. Yes, the Bookari app was "activated" so DRM'ed books & supposedly can be read. I had uninstalled Bookari previously because it was unable to recognize a plain TEXT file format as the reason I felt Bookari is useless. Another reason why DRM is truly a virus & malware. Don't know if the Bookari problem is just me or a "default".

Kobo Aura H2O does not read SD card

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 12:34:04 GMT

I got my Kobo Aura H2O about a month ago and was really impressed by it. I save all my books in my own collections on the SD card, but a week ago, the Kobo stopped recognizing the SD card (and any other SD card) automatically. The same SD cards are read in all other devices, so I have to assume that it is the Kobo that is not working. Getting help from Kobo has been like pulling teeth (so NOT impressed.) Does anyone else have the same problem? Thanks

Copying files to apps in iTunes 12.7

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 09:19:00 GMT

I was slightly concerned, after installing iTunes 12.7, that when I connected my iPad to iTunes, there was no longer an "Apps" item showing up in the device view. How do I now transfer files from my PC to apps like "GoodReader"? A little experimentation, though, shows that this is now done using the option called "File Sharing". Click this and you get the familiar list of apps that you can send files to, and drag and drop works as previously. Hopefully this'll save someone else having to hunt around for the feature :).

Moon+ Reader Multi Device Sync

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:58:57 GMT

Has anyone managed to sync Highlights/Notes between devices successfully? Gdrive and Dropbox don't seem to do them at all. I've managed to export (share) them to a file from the Bookmarks screen and then copy them to another device and then import them. Doing this though sets the date.time of them to now, and also even though they can be viewed in bookmarks they don't display on the book. It's like it's lost the links to which page they were on.. TIA

Android of kindle oasis

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 12:59:59 GMT

I found a Android Kindle system on Taobao in China. From videos,I can even watch movies with Kindle! The owner gave the tutorial and sold the activation code. I tried to find ways to avoid activating the code in the forums, but probably because my English was poor or I didn't know the reason for the layout of the forum, I didn't find it. If that's the way, could you tell me? Here is the owner's statement and the video about the effect of the brush: I did the global eink optimization for Kindle Android, there are a variety of refresh mode, no flash screen, no drag picture. Global bleach, adjustable font contrast, so that Android app in Kindle to achieve white background black words. Can the native + Android dual system. The owner said that all 5.8.7 below Kindle can brush themselves, other versions of Kindle need to jailbreak, or disassemble the machine and then brush the machine. :help::thanks:
