    Ebook reader for J2ME blackberrys

    Advertisement



    I know at least i have looked far and wide to find a ebook reader that worked on the blackberry. Its the major thing i was missing since i was forced to get a blackberry. I even tried the Jedi Reader mentioned here and that was a total flop since it never worked because the blackberry cant download 300k files over the air in J2ME at least on t-mobile. ontop of that you have the problem with efile that reading PDF's is a pain in the arse.

    So here is my screwy solution that works like a charm first you purchase the mbReader for 10$
    http://www.unteh.com/products/mbreader/
    or from handago
    http://www.handango.com/PlatformPro...productId=84826

    I know it says that it is the Nokia version but as it mentions there is a Nokia version and a Generic version. What i did is purchased the nokia version and within a day the developer emailed me the Generic version.

    Okay so now for how it works since it took me some trial and error to get it to work like a charm but oh does it work well.
    Once you get the zip software from the developer for the generic version it comes with a great little program called mbSplitter that is smple enough by breaking text files into multiple little J2ME files that are standalone readers.
    Now came my first workaround: Well everytime i did a OTA download i got a verification error when i tried to run the installed .jar and .jad files. So i used the workaround that is found here to manually make a .cod file and use javaloader.exe to upload the J2ME files. Now there are no verification errors and the ebooks read like a charm.

    Now if only one of you geniuses on the forums could help me find a way to not have to use javaloader.exe i would be eternally greatful but if it takes me 2-3 minutes to install a whole book im willing to live with that. Especially since the software lets you change the font size, The background color, bold the text and scroll. And most importantly bookmark.
    Here is a screenshot:



    Somebody might also want to look at these two programs that are free but i cant seem to get to work:
    http://peb.splitbits.com/Wiki.jsp?page=Main
    http://tequilacat.nm.ru/dev/br/index-en.html
    but i keep on getting a malformed address every time i try scrolling more than a page into the book since it seems to want to always download the books a page at a time so as to save space.

    Well i hope i posted in the right area but this is my first post so please be a bit forgiving. i just thought it would be useful to all you book lovers out there since i spent hours trying to get anything to work. PM me if you want me to also send you and example .cod file that you can put on your blackberry.

    so how did you get the workaround for making a .cod file and use javaloader.exe to upload the J2ME files?

    Entropy666, have you taken a look at Wattpad? I searched high and low for an ebook reader. Once I got Wattpad up and running, I've never looked back. Awesome app, great technical support. And it's free.
