I’ve got a PRS-T1 from 2011 / 2012. The newest update from Sony is from 2014 (1.0.07.05070 - released on 19 June 2014). Is seems to be the latest one.
Sadly there is no custom rom out there or a ArchLinux or ArchLinuxARM for it.
The newest 1.0.07.05070 version from Sony is not compatible with minimal-root.zip or rupor-minimal.zip wich I found in the internet to get root for this device and be able to install the ADW-launcher.
At the moment I run 1.0.05.11130 wich is based on Android 2.1.1 (froyo)(sdk 8).
I found fread.ink which seems to be a “alternate operating system for electronic paper ebook readers” but I think a working android for this device would be better because then I am able to install apps like spotify and had the most compatibility for a lot of apps.
The PRS-T1 seems to have a i.MX508. Here is a info paper:
And here is a hackaday post from 2018/07/25 with the titel: hope-xii-a-foss-operating-system-for-e-readers
- All supported Android versions:
Froyo (2.1.1), Gingerbread (2.3)
- on what other ROM is it currently running:
- is it maintained?
- is the current ROM official or unofficial:
- urls on XDA or other forums where the device custom ROM’s are available#
I would love it to see this device is not landing in the garbage of all the people out there and I think /e/ could be a wonderful rom for e-ink readers too.
