  • rootfs updater (the framework part to be more precise) deletes all but the last one in ASCII order and then happily installs the leftover
I'll utilize these facts in version 2 of this hack.
Super!
Sounds much more complete.
Are you going to give this on/off updater thing KUAL buttons?

Although I haven't written it up anywhere specifically, I did post the complete sequence for adding one new button to the KUAL 'Helpers' menu:

Start here, first post:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=205610
That is one of the existing buttons.

Then in post #3 :
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...98&postcount=3
The changes needed in words, and an attachment of the files in #1 after the changes.

At that point, I started by adding the "helper2" code to the kBBB repo -
http://hg.minimodding.com/repos/sys/...97cdb3/helper2
Which tracks all the changes from the post #3 attachment to the working DateTime button.

To summarize - just a few small edits to the control files + a new script to perform the function you want to add.
