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

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.

Awesome work!

Confirmed works in CM 10.1 on Tab 10.1 WiFi (P7510).

Now I can scratch that excuse off my list of reasons I prefer stock ROMs.

Now if only 4.2 were as smooth as 4.1...

can you check for the memory leak mentioned above ? import 50 - 100 books, switch bookshelf view to list, go to "by author", scroll up/down few times and try opening a book or watch memory usage in ddms (should not exceed 25 - 30MB)

Seo,

I successfully installed both apps to my wife's Transformer Tab T300. The ebook reader works well, I can also import books, but I have one problem: some accented letters are not shown (I am Hungarian and we have some funny characters). Maybe because you deleted a font from the app. The Samsung ebook reader on my Galaxy Tab 7.7 shows those letters well.

Would it be possible to compile a version with the proper fonts too?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks a lot, but the problem remained the same with the new version...

I am uploading an epub book in Hungarian. Only two characters are not shown properly: "ő" and "ű".
