    Anybody know a site that you can download a WIDE variety of comics, not just manga? (Im kind of a comic book nerd, so having this would be really cool...)

    its not allowed here to link to stuff like this but if anyone knows about waffles and is a member they jsut started to allow Comics. Even tho its a .cbr file you can unzip that file and rezip them into a .zip file and it works fine.

    Which brings me to asking if this app can get more rar type file support. .cbr is standard for comics and is basically the same thing as a zip...can that be coded it along with .rar as well?

    hi kurosagi,

    this app is what i've really been waiting for!

    but i'm having problems with the blog link provided to get the app coz my pc just would not recognize its download link and wouldn't even show it. tried other PCs in our house without any luck.

    would it be ok for you to upload your translated version here or in the MMi downloads section? thanks.

    Default iComic issues
    I'm having some troubles getting iComic to run. I've tried both versions that are available to download, I've made sure the permission is set to 755, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled it multiple times.

    My issue is that every time I launch it, it hangs on a blank screen and then goes back to the springboard. I'm running 1.1.1, anybody have and suggestions?

    Can someone explain the settings to me? I really have no idea how anything works.
    What do these do:
    Move to Top Right
    Scroll Speed (how many seconds is 50? 100? 70? I know what it does)
    Slide to Right
    Button Size
    Rotations?

    So confusing. Too lazy to figure it out :P

    Default Got it!
    Thanks Vishnuvenky. I checked the strings and reset their permissions. Also off that I decided to check every item in the folder and the actual iComic wasn't set right... Got it working, thank god. Now this long flight home for the holidays will be filled with comic booky goodness!

    you can use a number of pdf to jpeg converters available, some free. i put up a post here if you want to learn how to download text files and convert them into readable books on your iPhone.

    Default Still can't find a way.
    Alright. Followed this procedure:

    Downloaded iComic, and the english menu zip.
    Unzipped both.
    Came up with a folder called icomic007_0, and one called English Menu.
    Fired up CyberDuck, sftp'd in just great, full access.
    Copied the icomic icon from withing icomic007_0 into /applications.

    Didn't even bother with the english files yet.

    Viewed the 'info' of all files within icomic.app in Cyberduck, checked "apply permissions recursively". Hit apply.

    Restarted iphone.



    The icon for iComic does not appear on my home screen (any of them, i'm using 'Customize').

    Using the mobile finder app, I tried to launch iComic. Nothing. nada. Goes to black screen, then back to home screen. (App launching from within MobileFinder is enabled).

    Tried going into customize and 'hiding' the icon, applying changes, then 'unhiding' the icon, and restarting springboard. No change. No icon. Program still won't run from within MobileFinder either.

    I'm stuck. No idea what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone here offer a bit of advice for a stranded not-so-noob on the installation, as well as the exact file tree for installing the english language files?

    Much appreciated, the thread has been a great help so far.

    the icomic icon???? you gotta paste the entire icomic.app folder not just the icon

  17. #36
    Default Um, yea.
    I think that goes unsaid. Of course the app needs more than an icon to run. My point was that the icon for the app does not appear on my home screen. No button to press to launch the app whose folder/files I've put in my apps folder. Thoughts?

    Edit:
    Also, under MacOS the downloaded iphone.app appears as an icon, and not a folder. Hence, I moved the icon, which contained the files.

    i was finally able to figure out how to install an english version using the japanese orig:
    - download the japanese iComic007 from googlecode http://code.google.com/p/iphonecomic/
    - unzip the iComic007 pack and copy the whole iComic.app folder into your phone's <root>/applications folder directory
    - create a new folder named Comic in var/root/media/ so var /root/media/Comic is the folder wherein you put all your zipped comics/documents
    - change the permissions of all the files inside the iComic007.app folder. (i use mobilefinder in the phone)
    - respring your springboard
    - then to get icomic in English, delete the japanese.lproj folder directory under <root>/applications/icomic.app
    - repsring again and you will find that iComic is now in perfect english!

    * thanks kurosagi for showing the psp tool to convert documents into jpegs. works great!
    * for those who have ebooks in pdf formats, you can manually convert them into jpegs by using photoshop. just drag the pdf file into photoshop and when it asks you what resolution you want the document image to be, make it between 100-150dpi only (it's only text anyway). then save it as jpeg (it automatically flattens the file to make the background white).

    I finally fixed my crashing problem. In Transmit, my SFTP client, I selected the iComic.app and changed the permissions to 755, and I clicked 'Apply to enclosed items.' Works now.

    Gave up, used installer. It's under the 'moyashi' source. Happy Holidays, and intoxication to all!
