I've managed to get the Logos Android app running on the Tolino, an e-ink device from Germany. Got the idea ages ago on this forum in this thread:

Anyway, I've compiled all relevant information in English here:

Thanks Jan for very detailed manual "How to root Tolino e-reader", excelent!

I am considering to buy Tolino, but I would like to know one key thing first: under Logos App for Android 2.3 is it possible to make text highlighting with e-ink display? And synchronize it? I understand that black and white screen does not offer options to change colors etc. but at least inverted or underscored text would be helpful option for me. I am desperately seeking for convenient device with e-ink display (can't read on my IPad due to eye strain - all the day I am sitting in front of the LCD, so in the evening it is not possible for me to staring on glowing screen of tablet). Second key feature for my text studying is possibility to mark text (and making notes if possible)...

Hi Pavel,

I just tested this. I never used the highlighting option before. Looks like a good feature.

Anyway, the feature hasn't been optimized for E-Ink at all, but it's available, and syncing also is working fine. All kind of highlighting options are available: circling, underscore, double underscore, boxes etc. as well as the various background and font colours, which look a bit poor on the b/w screen.

That is great news Jan :-) It seems to be exactly what I need (I count with mentioned highlighting drawbacks due to e-ink)

Thanks very much for answer.
