Wish I could help, but I no longer have my Kobo. I sold it when I found an E-Ink device that ran a newer version of Android natively and so had more flexibility. The Android setup on the Kobo was always rather touchy, and that version of Android on the Kobo hack (2.3.4) is getting long in the tooth! Maybe someone else who still uses the Kobo can help.

I don't blame you! I'm thinking about doing the same. Which new device did you buy? I'm thinking about getting the Onyx or Icarus devices which run it natively and have the 9 inch screens. What new device do you suggest?

You have to be careful about Onyx devices. Some of the larger ones aren't compatible with the most recent version of Logos/Verbum.  My suggestions are either the Onyx C67ML Carta or the Boyue T62+. These devices are similar in a number of ways: 6 inch E-Ink Carta displays, 212 dpi, and they run Android 4.2.2.  Both are compatible with the newest version of the Logos/Verbum app. The Boyue is a little thicker and heavier because it has a bigger battery and better battery life. The Boyue also has a larger partition for user-installed apps (1 GB compared to 350 mb for the Onyx). The Onyx is lighter (though the Boyue doesn't feel heavy by any means). Both have similar data storage space (8 gb), and both have a microSD card slot. 

If you plan to use the device for only Logos and eBooks, then either will serve you well. If you want a number of apps on your device, get the Boyue. If you want extra battery life, get the Boyue. If you want the lightest possible device, get the Onyx.  

If you want a larger device, like the Onyx M96, you'll need to install an older version of Logos on it. It will run fine, but a few resources may not run well on the older app version.

If resources are not compatible with the old version, they won't even open! Tongue Tied (such as the Lexham Bible Dictionary, or the newer Themelios journals).

As for me, I'm waiting for an Android 6 reader, so that I can extend the internal memory with an SD card.

Thanks for the good info! I actually just bought the onyx boox i86. So it looks like I'll have to run the older versions of logos on it. 

I will see what happens.

If it is too much trouble with the older version of logos there is a Beta of 4.4 for the i86 (http://ereader-store.de/en/content/8-downloads) with good instructions.

Hopefully things go smooth!

I hope things go smoothly for you, too! However, it's my understanding (for your sake, I'd love to be wrong) that the problem that the latest Logos app has with some Onyx devices (the T68, M96 and i86) isn't the version of Android they run (Logos apps work on 4.0+), but a limitation with the hardware of the devices themselves. It has to do with hardware acceleration features. For some reason, the Onyx C67 passes that test, while most other Onyx devices do not. The Nook Glowlight Plus runs Android 4.4, but if you install the newest Logos app and open any resource, you get a black screen. Same with the Onyx T68. You need the older Logos app to be able to view any resource. And, as others have said, incompatible resources will simply crash the app. Faithlife officially doesn't support Android E-Ink devices because of these issues. I wish I could offer you more encouraging news. Hopefully, your results will be better.

Yes! I really want to do this! I just bought a Boyue T62 assuming that it would be possible to run Logos. This would be especially good since they are retiring the 'Send to Kindle' function. Please Logos!

Can you clarify what older version works on the M96?

Can you clarify which older version works on the M96, I was able to download and install 4.3.9 and it works, however the hebrew doesn't render correctly. Would a later version fix this? it renders fine on my Nexus phone since ice cream sandwich. Hebrew is all I use logos for. Thanks for your time.

Thanks

You need version 4.3.9.  There was a link on one of these threads to where you could get it. Maybe someone else knows where it is. I no longer have an E-Ink device, so I deleted my copy. (Sorry!) A word to the wise, however: More and more resources are being updated, and will only work properly with more recent versions of the Logos app. Version 4.3.9. will still run on your device, and many resources will still work. But you may find frustrating the number that do not.  

Edit: Oops, misread your post. Yes, a later version of the app will fix that problem, but may not work on the M96! Again, be aware that many resources and features will not work on older versions of the app.

A newer version of Android is required to fix Hebrew rendering. Please see https://developer.android.com/about/versions/jelly-bean.html (and search the page for Hebrew).
