  • Tolino Shine 3;

    Ich habe es auf meinem Shine 3 mit 1 GB Data Partition nicht zum Laufen gebracht.

    Es bootet, zeigt kurz den Launcher und macht dann weiter mit den 3 Boot Punkten .......

    Und wenn ich unterbreche und neu starte, dann bleibt ... und nichts kommt mehr

  • Can you provide more info maybe?

    I have to setup calibre companion, and when trying to go deeper everything is mixed, so i cannot se anything.

    The screen of the higher level doesnot vanish and so the letters are mixed. I cannot explain it better.

    When trying to open the available android, I could see, that starting with Firmware Version 11 the refresh moved from OS into the Tolino App. Therefore I decided not to use a launcher and to move between apps with OneToucher.

    With FW 13, the "back/home" swyper moved into the Tolino app - which must run. These are the problems with Tolino Android.

  • Im not sure if it is a refresh problem. Perhaps this helps:

    This looks like the old screen is not cleared before the new sreen is shown and the new screen is a mixture from old and new.

    And when going deeper, the next screen is merged too.

    "Back" clears only the last.

    Screen refresh doesnt help.

    This happens in every app which i have tested, when i must go deeper (one level down in setup), AlReader, Onleihe App, Total Commander, ....

    And it doesnt work together with sleep cover.

  • We'll see, maybe I'll be able to do something about it.

    At least, I was going to try to change that "refresh button" to use some other refresh mode.
