I use my Kobo for work (reading journal articles) so I want to make sure I have the instructions right before I flash anything.
Is page turning faster for PDFs too?
OK, firstly all credit to zog for this, I just interpreted his instructions.
1 - Download the kobo update http://www.borders.com.au/uploads/bo...u-full-1_4.tgz
2 - Download the Cool-er update http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...42&postcount=8
3 - Format a 2Gb SD card to ext3 (I used gparted under ubuntu)
4 - Extract the kobo update to the SD card (I used the built in function of midnight commander)
5 - Extract the Cool-er update to a temporary directory somewhere
6 - Copy files/eb600em/fs.tgz from the expanded Cool-er directory to overwrite file/eb600em/fs.tgz on the SD
7 - Turn off the kobo, insert the SD, and turn it back on whilst holding down the centre D pad button
8 - Once 5 boxes have appeared on the kobo boot screen, you can let go and the firmware will update. Takes a few minutes and the device appears to restart several times.
Of course these instructions may be pretty worthless if the just released 1.8 firmware is any good
Edit: haven't tried PDFs yet
