Have you got it working yet? I got mine up and running the other night, readily opening comics from my 8 tb server.
I'm on ICS 22.214.171.124
Directions that worked for me (thanks to all applicable parties that produced these tools):
1. Root via instructions here:
...and install Superuser, Terminal Emulator, and Root Explorer apps from the market (all free). If you ever get a request from one of the apps in the steps below to give it Superuser permissions, select "allow".
2. Get the two modules (cifs.ko and md4.ko) from here:
3. Copy the two modules to your /system/lib/modules/ directory...you may want to use Root Explorer to set the permissions on this folder to writable so you can do this.
4. (Don't know if this step is necessary, considering step 6 basically does the same thing every time you boot your prime). Open a terminal emulator window and type:
5. Get cifsManager from the market (free)
6. In cifsManager, first select options and tick "Load cifs module", then tick "Load via insmod", then select "Path..." and type
7. From options in CifsManager, select "add new share" and under "share path" type the network location for your shares. (example: "192.168.0.102/Videos"....You can also use the computer name in place of the IP address, but I've never had luck this way...if your router supports it, you can also reserve an IP address for it so it stays static). Under "Mount Point", type the location on your prime you want the contents of that network folder to show up (mine uses /sdcard/Movies/Videos/, for example).
8. Your share should now show up in the opening page in cifsManager, select it and choose "Mount". Provided everything is configured correctly, your shares should now show up, for any app that can browse files, in the folder you specify. For example, if your share has .cbr files in it, and you navigate to its mount point (/sdcard/Movies/Videos/ in my example) via PerfectViewer app, you should now be able to open your comics no problem. Where before, file managers such as EStrong's would give you "no application" errors trying to open .cbr's from a network share, navigating to your mounted folder and selecting a cbr will give you an "open as..." window you can select "picture" and specify PerfectViewer with.
Note: You may have to open cifsManager and re-mount the shares whenever you reboot your prime. Don't worry, it takes about two seconds. The above you should only have to do once.
