New to Kobo, Need help with some stuf.
About a week ago I bought a kobo Mini, and have decided to hack it.
I decided a nice place to start would be trying the weather display thing.
I've spent quite a few hours reading through this forum, and have a few questions:
First Question: From what I have read, when a Kobo finds a archive named KoboRoot.tgz in its .kobo directory it will extract the contents to it's root, adding new files and replacing old ones, Am I correct?
2nd Question: I have been reading this guide, and have gotten confused at some parts.
Most tutorials say that You have to factory reset your kobo to start hacking, is this necessary for any other reason then to get the default KoboRoot.tgz file?
Question 3: The tutorial I mentioned says to add the code
I'm guessing that nickel would start after everything else is done,
so I guess that
/usr/local/Kobo/nickel -qws &
(I was thinking of putting the line right under the hashbang, but I'm not certain if any directories need to be mounted or whatnot; I also thought of putting the line above the first time nickel was mentioned, would that be safe, or still with the directories?)
Q4: After editing the file rcS, the tutorial says to run the command
tar czf KoboRoot.tgz etc/init.d/rcS
(Is Updating before hacking even necessary if I'm running the latest firmware?
Again, Thank you for taking the time to read through this, I'm truly greatfull!

Since nobody else responded up to now, I will try to tell the little that I think I know. However be warned, I am not even a linux user.
