Got a Kobo Glo last weekend. Running firmware 2.1.5. People on this thread seem to confirm that the plugin interface works on the Glo with this firmware.
I followed the instructions - connected my Glo via USB, unzipped both files to the .kobo directory, and ejected the device from my PC. I think the .tgz file is being read, because when I do this, the screen says that the software is updating.
My issue is that after that, the old stock interface is still there, with no changes. I open a book, and close it. Still no change. I shut down the Kobo, boot it back up, open and close a book, and still nothing.
I've tried this with my own *.ini content, and with an unmodified *.ini file downloaded from the first post of this thread. Neither has worked.
What am I doing wrong?
