Is there any open source version of firmware for ebook readers or maybe project like RockBox?

AFAIK most of e-ink readers runs linux, so maybe exists at least one model of e-reader with an open specification and/or drivers for which you can build your own custom linux ?

Yes, there exists some information. The driver for the e-ink display is broadsheetfb. However, attempting to do it is probably non-trivial since this is not something that is commonly done.

That said, good luck and if you succeed in this, please post details!
