iLiad e-book reader hacked for use with HSDPA modem


iRex's iLiad e-book reader already boasts some built-in WiFi capabilities, but if that's not enough to whet your wireless appetite you may want to take after MobileRead forum member "drazvan," who managed to get the device to play nice with a Vodafone USB HSDPA modem. The whole process appears to be relatively straightforward, simply requiring you to run a few scripts on the iLiad, which drazvan has kindly provided. While he's only tested it with the Vodafone modem, he seems confident that it'll also work with other modems providing you make the necessary adjustments, which you'll unfortunately have to figure out how to do yourself.
