It depends on the method used to created the PDF. PDF files created directly from a digital document (like a Word file) allow you to resize them because embeds the text "behind" the image during conversion. This is done for a number of reason, such as facilitating screen reader software and extracting the text from a document by copying and pasting. When you resize the fonts with a reader application, it is working with that text--not unlike increasing the font size in a word dcoument. A scanned document does not have this text embedded (unless it is OCRed), so there is nothing there for the reader program to work with and resize. It's basically just an image in PDF format. I'm sure that there's a programmer-type member here who can explain it much more elegantly than this, but this is the basic gist of the problem.

dunamis, it starts and ends with ADB. You need to see if you can download the consolidated hack file and if it works with your device on and connected. If the computer doesn't see the device, things get complicated. Start there though.
