Hacking the Pandigital Novel Print E-mail

Latest News irst, if you want to hack your Novel then you really should visit SlateDroid and check out the Novel forum. Thatís where you can find help with troubleshooting. Iím not refusing to help; I just want to do it in a forum setting (itís easier). I didnít go all the way and actually root the Novel. Instead I stopped after I installed a replacement home screen (so I could run other apps). I had trouble finding a home screen that I could download. For the most part they are only in the Marketplace and I donít have access. Eventually I found Panda Home, and it seems to be working okay.

Installing apps on the Novel requires the use of the command line (thatís what works for me) but the process is relatively easy. You canít use the new apps from the existing home screen, so youíll also need to install a new home screen. I have Aldiko, Kindle, Fictionwise eReader and Kobo apps installed. Iíd forgotten how much I liked Aldiko.

As you can see in the video, the page turn speed is significantly faster with Aldiko or the Kindle app. General responsiveness has also improved. Iím a lot happier with the Novel now that crappy original software has been bypassed. It turns out that it does have decent hardware specs.
