Then I put the run.sh script with these two lines inside
Code:
 cp /etc/inittab /mnt/onboard
 cp /etc/inetd.conf /mnt/onboard
I put this run.sh script in the same directory as where eBooks etc go, and I copied it to .kobo as well, just to be safe.

And reboot and... I don't have these two inittab and inetd.conf files anywhere.

What am I missing?
I'm running into the same problem. I got my KoboRoot.tgz file by doing the factory reset and update thing. I'm running windows, so I repackaged the archive after making the edits to rcS by making a tar file of the whole extracted folder and running gzip on that.

The update runs, but the files that were supposed to appear after the reset never do. I also included the line that's supposed to create a hello.txt file, no dice there either. I'm not entirely sure where the files are supposed to appear but I've looked everywhere.
