Disclaimer: I don't take responsibility if you damage your reader by using one of my files or following my suggestions. Be aware that modifying your reader will most probably void any warranty and may make your device unusable.


Stable versions of AMR (20120517) and Apps2SD (20120327) are based upon Sony's firmware version 1.0.04.12210 released for US market.

Stable versions of AMR (20121220) and Apps2SD (20121206) are based upon Sony's firmware version 1.0.05.11130 released for US market.


All sources for the project are available from our SVN repository. Discussions could be found on MobileRead's Sony Reader Dev Corner and on www.the-ebook.org Sony Android forums. This work is based on works of porkupan (boroda) and without his help would not be possible.


How to install:

First of all - here is excellent WiKi page which would be referred here many times.

Make sure that your reader is in "original" state with Sony's firmware version 1.0.04.12210 (or 1.0.05.11130 - depending on what you are installing). If you previously rooted your device or installed some custom firmware - you will need to restore your device using one of restoration packages made by porkupan from here. Make sure that it starts with "restore-set" and matches your firmware version

Make full device backup by using following procedure. Sorry for the absence of proper translation - I will do it as soon as I have time.

Download AMR (below) and follow installation instructions from WiKi page to perform installation.

Make sure AMR is installed properly by looking at the home page of the device - you should have third (launcher) page now with Total Commander, Superuser and Settings icons.

If you would like to use Apps2SD (this is not a required step) - this is the time. Download Apps2SD (below) and follow the same installation instructions.

Make sure Apps2SD is installed properly by looking at the System settings->Application Management. Pick up application to see if it could be moved to SD.

Download applications you want (APK files) and install them using Total Commander from the 3rd page of Home application.

Enjoy!

Please, note that AMR and Apps2SD are 2 separate packages with 2 independent installations. Do not copy them on top of each othe rto be installed in one step - it would not work!
