    Is there any homebrew that can let me read PDFs?

    Not too sure but there are lots of Homebrews that let you read txt's. And Adobe Reader allows you to rip the contents into a .txt and save it.

    Well, I was wondering if there was any way to convert it to work on IkuReader.

    Just searched up and it accepts .txt. So on your computer, open the PDF(s) with Adobe Reader and go to File then save as text.

    So to answer your question, IkuReader won't accept PDF's but the PDF's can be converted to be accepted by IkuReader.

    Use Calibre to convert the PDF to epub and you can read it in ikureader or dslibris. I do it all the time.

    With some tinkering and using code off their site, you can make PictoDS format PDF's to CBDS format too. It works alright imho. If the book is over 200 pages you start getting slowdown unfortunately. [​IMG]

    Just remenber that Iku Reader has only partial epub format so you might run into problems with some epub files.

    There is Ands-PDF, but it was always more of a proof of concept than a functioning application. As others have said, your best option may be to use Calibre to convert to ePub and read with DSLibris (or ikureader. I haven't tested its ePub support lately).
