Sqlite database replacement instructions

To get the database used for software version 1.8, refer to this post in this thread. The installation instructions are the same as those included here -- except that the kobo-dir-pristine also contains a kepub folder which must be also copied to the .kobo folder.

Note: Version 1.8 is only used in the Original Kobo.

As requested by Sameer H :

NOTE: The Links below are for the db used with software version 1.4.

To put a fresh db on your eReader.

Fetch this zip file

http://download.kobobooks.com/deskto...-fresh-1-4.zip

1. Attach the eReader to the computer
2. Ensure that it is detected as mass storage

FOR A MAC:
1. Open mass storage device in Finder
2 . Select the "GO" option from the top menu
3. Select Go to folder
4. Type in .kobo
5. .kobo folder will open
6. Delete the images folder
7. Delete the KobReader.sqlite file (this is the database file)
8. From a new Finder window, browse to where the downloaded zip file is.
9. Unzip the file, it will unzip a folder called kobo-dir-pristine
10. Open kobo-dir-pristine, copy the images folder and the KoboReader.sqlite file over to the .kobo folder on the mass storage.
11. Eject the eReader
12. Restart the eReader (power off, and then power back on)


ON A PC
1. Open mass storage device in Finder
2. Ensure hidden folders are visible (different for different Windows versions)

XP: My Computer > Tools menu > Folder Options > View Tab > Advanced Settings > Hidden Files and Folders > Show hidden files and folders.
OK all the way out.

Vista and Windows 7: Start > Control Panel > Folder Options > View Tab > Click Show Hidden files and folders > OK

3. Open .kobo folder on the mass storage
6. Delete the images folder
7. Delete the KobReader.sqlite file (this is the database file)
8. Unzip the downloaded file to an accessible folder, it will unzip to a folder called kobo-dir-pristine.
9. Open kobo-dir-pristine, copy the images folder and the KoboReader.sqlite file over to the .kobo folder on the mass storage.
10. Eject the eReader
11. Restart the eReader (power off, and then power back on)
