I'm not sure if it will work right out of the box, but it could definitely be made to work.
You could go ahead and try to run it as-is on the Touch. I'm just not sure if the Touch's
e-ink display will allow updating the screen in the same way as the Wifi

Since I don't know why it works on my Wifi, I'm not sure why it doesn't work on yours.
After a reboot, what is in the rotate file? Mine contains a single zero.
Code:
cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate
What does the "fbset" command output?

My US Kobo Wifi is running firmware 1.9 (r25373), from March 29, 2011.
