I've been use epods Hack v1.02 reading some chinese books with "free softwares" as following and hope it would be helpful for some of you still hang around here, assuming you can read chinese.
1. Download CE-Star 2.2 and install only the sung14.ttf (1Mb) and wxesetup.exe (17k), that's all you need. FYI, I tried CE-Star 1.1 first and it did not work well
2. Run wxesetup.exe and reset your machine as instructed
3. Install the eshutang e-book reader for wince211 http://www.eshutang.com/ and download/make your own free ebooks or buy them on line (most of them are as cheap as $0.1)
BTW, the chinese fonts do not show perfectly but readable
