Ntx (netronix) device users should just copy arcotg_udc.ko and g_ether.ko to /mnt/onboard/.kobo/usbnet, replacing original files.

WARNING !!!
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!
Dear Sergey,
i understand it may not work under windows, but if I wanted to try, how should I implement your step 4 above? Or is it impossible to do on a windows machine?
