DDVK Hacks for reMarkable

If you have a reMarkable tablet you should really consider installing the DDVK hacks, it’s a simple install using the terminal in OSX or Putty for Windows and adds a lot of missing functionality to the tablet. You can find the instructions and files here. If you opted for the LAMY EMR PEN then you can also install the hack to enable the button for erasing.
