The plugin does initialize in some way, since the .ini file is created, but none of the tweaks seem to appear.

You all have make really impressive progress so far.
Thanks to all the contributors!

I figured it out, having a µSD card in the Kobo during startup breaks the loading.

Once nickel loads, you can put the µSD card back in (even before loading the Library/plugin) and everything works fine. This occurred when I had some epubs & pdfs on the card and also appeared when I didn't have any indexed files on the card, just some ignored fonts & Calibre files. (I don't think content is the issue.)

I could send you the version info, but I'm not sure it really matters. If it's any help, I saw this issue with all old versions I tested (back to post #11) Also, even with the card breaking full loading, the plugin would create the .ini file. So something after that might be a good starting point. (Disclosure: I don't actually know anything.)

I have a µSD card in my KT so I gave it a try without it. But it seems now the plugin forces a reboot on my device, i.e if I go to the Library, wait a while then press the Home button to get out, after a few seconds the led lights up blue and the device goes through a full power on.

In case you already downloaded the archive from my dropbox, I just added another new icon to the same archive: power

Just in case this idea from another thread could / would be implemented:

Of course have a "Are you sure" after choosing shutdown. Or even an option in Settings in whether or not the Shutdown option will even show up.

Im only saying this because the power button sucks.
I have no problem with the power-button, but if this is easy to do, a few people might like this option...

Thanks!

Here's my current setup, so whoever has not tried it yet can get a visual impression of a setup possible right now...

(I also added a shot of the current tweaks-page as some text and lines got lost in this version (at least on my device))

Just as a short disclaimer, the sync and disable wireless timeout stuff might not work yet. I'm currently studying for exams so I can't spend a lot of time working on it. Also the settings page really needs an update, but for that it might be a good idea to actually use the custom touch/reversible widgets which also require some more work.

Disable wireless timeout should stop the Kobo from automatically disconnecting after a few minutes. With the current implementation that seems to work if you toggle the setting after connecting to Wifi, but not after a reconnect or reboot. It might be possible to just disconnect the Qt signal from WirelessWatchdog to it's timer instead of calling setEnabled(false). But I haven't yet actually tried that.

And about the sync: It's intended to search for new ebooks which you've copied over via scp/ftp but currently just starts the sync with the kobo store.

What stats are you interested in? Just a percentage? That shouldn't be a problem.

I was just thinking of an easy means of viewing the charge on the battery for instance.
