The simple answer is No. You need to use Samsung stock ICS or with Touch Wiz. the book reader needs Samsung's frame work

If this answer helps Please click my Thanks button.

Technically this is correct and incorrect.

The app itself will work but you need Samsung's MyFiles app to import books into the ebook app, which runs off the TouchWizUX framework.

If somebody could find a way to get MyFiles to work outside TouchWiz, then in theory it should work perfectly.

so far it does installs, but always crashes when you tried import.

+1! I'd love to get this working on stock JB.

Here is a page describing how to remove the dependencies on TouchWiz: Link

I would try it but I've tried many times to decompile and recompile ICS apps with no success.

My advice to anyone is to get My Files working out of touchwiz, then ebooks would work by default.

It's possible to use ebook without touchwizz fw.
Import does not work but if you open the epub file with a file browser, it does not crash.

go here

you also need MyFiles.apk to be able to import books. both Ebook and MyFiles are resigned. tested on my galaxy tab 10.1v (stock ics non-touchwiz rom)

I have made the following changes:
- to MyFiles.apk (taken from earler honeycomb P7500 touchwiz rom) :
-- no support for external usb storage as my tab doesn't support it, don't have time to add some try-catch statements to make it compatible with devices that support it.
-- disabled android.intent.action.MEDIA_MOUNTED receiver, so an activity won't show up on boot (we don't need this is anyway)

- to Ebook.apk
-- default font is changed to DroidSansFallback. CODE2000.TTF removed from assets/fonts/
-- replaced libadobermsdkwrapper.so with one from P7500's honeycomb Ebook.apk. default library results in crashes on my tablet.
-- CODE2000.TTF replaced with Roboto-Regular.ttf
-- small change to com/samsung/elibreader/BookshelfLibraryViewer to make it work with my MyFiles.apk. otherwise it would require newe MyFiles.
-- disabled tts language detection.
-- fixed a memory leak due to not implemented native method (related to screen capturing, takeSnapshot in FBSnapshotMaker or something)

as a result of the above TTS will not work at all. LensControl may work or may not work, depends, it doesn't for me

there is still a horrible memory leak in bookshelf's show by title / category / author views. MAT gives some hints that it is related to a ListView instance. I support a layoutinflater.... I may fix that in the future, or I may not fix, depends )

I have also uploaded modified sources so you guys know what and where has been changed, search for "# " comments.

remember, no guarantees, "works for me" doesn't mean that it will also work for you.

and @Luxor thanks for sharing the apk. I've been fighting some really weird bugs with a newer apk, this one is alot better.
