The 2 new options are added to KoboLauncher:
I've managed to compile g_ether.ko usb gadget network driver for the new (freescale!) kobo Touch/Glo readers. It was absent in /drivers/freescale/usb/gadget (ntx driver from /drivers/ntx/usb/gadget is not suitable for new freescale models).
Ntx (netronix) device users should just copy arcotg_udc.ko and g_ether.ko to /mnt/onboard/.kobo/usbnet, replacing original files.
This network driver has no RNDIS support and probably will now work under M$ Windows. I've tested it with linux.
1. Start Kobo Launcher
2. Connect USB cable if it is not connected
3. choose "usbnet" option
4. sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.100 on desktop.
You reader has IP: 192.168.2.101.
usbnet works much faster and much stable that wifi!
2. Power off
For now it is just "power off". There is no "power off" screen image for a while. But it is in plans!
