    This is normal, as eInk screens are optimized for black-on-white mode. Change the refresh rate if it annoys you.
First, thank you!
Maybe it's not possible but I would like to have a different setting (in nightmode.ini) for the refresh rate in nightmode, in "daymode" I have 6

Sure you can use it anytime. The original idea was to have a less "glaring" option for night time reading. Rather than a bright white screen with a relatively small amount of dark text, do it the other way around; a dark screen, with a small amount of bright text.

Is there anyway to have this option on normal non inverted mode as well because with this I can set the refresh to say 10 pages as the ghost effect in day mode is not really visible

Hey, that's a good idea I think it's also simple to do, see the latest changes to the code:

You can already do this. Firstly, set the refresh to something other than 6. Then connect to the PC and edit ".kobo/Kobo/Kobo eReader.conf". Find the line with "numPartialUpdatePageTurns". Change that to an integer up to 99 and save. The device will use that number. And if you look at the refresh option, it shows "OH THE HUMANITY!".

No problem, that's why I thought it might be a good idea to start a new thread so I can update it myself, but some mod merged it back
