    Being a noob I don't have the first idea of how to add ebooks to my IpT. Anyone have a tutorial? And would i use this same method to add a PDF file?

    You'll need to have an eBooks application, such as eBooks

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Then you'll need to go into Installer, find an eBook such as Harry Potter, and install it. It will automatically be added to the eBook application so that you can read it there.

    SSH/Ibrickr into your /var/mobile/Media directory, make a directory called "EBooks" there and chmod it to 777 (there are many tutorials on how to do that if you don't already know how). Take the book you want to read (in txt or HTML format, not pdf) and make a directory in /var/mobile/Media/EBooks for that book and upload all the files into that directory. Then just open the book up in what ever book reader you are using.
