Did you try resetting it with the small hole in the back and holding the home button? I haven't looked at what the pygame installation does, but the tweaks plugin doesn't do anything during boot.

Yes, I've tried the reset button and holding the home button. No response at all.
The pygame plugin doesn't do anything at boot. I've really only added a few lines to your
tweak's code. And my Touch no longer shows a green light. Apparently it's done "charging."

That's great! I also managed to get python running in the kobo touch. My approach was to take the necessary arm debian packages to have a fully working interpreter:
Code:
libncurses5_5.7+20081213-1_armel.deb
libncursesw5_5.7+20081213-1_armel.deb
libreadline5_5.2-3.1_armel.deb
python2.5_2.5.2-15+lenny1_armel.deb
python2.5-minimal_2.5.2-15+lenny1_armel.deb
python-minimal_2.5.2-3_all.deb
readline-common_5.2-3.1_all.deb
and build a KoboRoot.tgz from them.

That works too! I'm sure there are several ways python could be installed on the Touch.

For anyone using pygame on the Touch (maybe on the Glo and Mini too?), you might be
able to get pygame to recognize the touch screen as a mouse input if you export the
environment variable SDL_MOUSEDEV before running your script:
Code:
export SDL_MOUSEDEV=/dev/input/event1
This is completely untested (I don't have a Touch anymore), but it just might work.
