Installation instructions:

* Extract 'config.zip' to the device into the '.kobo' directory
* Extract test-xx-xx-xx.zip to the device into the '.kobo' directory and eject the device. Upgrade should install automatically.

To enable the plugin you have to open a book after the reader is booted.
The plugin won't load if a SD card is inserted during startup.

---------------


IMPORTANT: I've changed the plugin name from 'libtest.so' to 'libpoc.so'
This update installs a dummy 'libtest.so' to disable the previous plugin.
If you want to downgrade the plugin to a prior version you have to remove the 'libpoc.so' file first.
