I don't think backing up the .kobo directory like that won't help. The device is probably looking to see if a user is logged in and that requires the entry in the database.

Just one warning: any version of the firmware prior to 2.5 was designed for smaller and lower resolution screens. Some of the controls will be harder to press and the cover view on the home screen will be crammed into the top left corner. There were other bugs, but I forget what they were. (Needless to say, I ended up returning to 2.5.)
That's interesting to hear. I think I'd try it just to see how bad it looked Was the whole screen used when reading a book?
