I can't seem to get it to work on my UK Kobo WiFi with 1.9.10 firmware. I've rooted it, enabled telnet, installed Python and pygame, but when I come to run the script I get the following error:

Kobo Wifi weather forecast started.
Getting weather information . . .
Drawing to the screen . . .
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "weather.py", line 346, in <module>
get_weather_data()
File "weather.py", line 93, in get_weather_data
display(days, highs, lows, conditions, img_links)
File "weather.py", line 100, in display
pygame.display.init()
pygame.error: Unsupported console hardware

A quick search tells me that "echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate" should fix it - but it doesn't. I can echo as much as I like to that file, but pygame still errors out.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
