Yeah I saw this in the actual file (didn't check the github commit) and tried to add the extra function for what I called in the config "daymode" but the device didn't boot with my code and I had to reset it (probably because I don't have much knowledge of C++ but I thought I'd give it a go before asking )

Anyways with the information davidfor gave, it now becomes redundant

Ok, I played a little and for my taste 6 is enough. Setting it to 8 already makes the 8th page text "faded".

I noticed that there's a FrontLightLevel option under [PowerOptions]. I think that I do not need the frontlight hack anymore for my 2.4 firmware if I set it to 1.

If I am reading the github correctly, this cool mod no longer works with the latest firmware?

No idea about 2.81, but it still works with 2.61.
At least if you trigger it with Files Monitor.

I just upgrade my Glo to 2.8.1 followed by re installation of the latest night light build. I am happy to report that it works perfectly!

I just installed it on my Aura running 2.8.1 - same result, works seamlessly as before.

I got it to work just fine with the newest version of Fmon. Thanks to the developer for this great tweak!

Do you think it would be possible to have this activate only when reading a book, like keep the home screen, other apps and sleepcover non-inverted?

I don't think this is possible with the current night mode hack. It is somehow OT, but if you like you can do this.
Spoiler:
You can use .kobo/kepub/kepub-book.css to get something similar to the night mode. I use a file wob.css

Code:
html {
    color: white;
    background-color: black;
}
.KBHighlighting{
    color: black; 
    background-color: white;
}

.KBSearchResult {
    color: black; 
    background-color: white;
 }
With Kobo Launcher I start one of two scripts to activate or deactivate the white on black mode:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
cp /mnt/onboard/wob.css /mnt/onboard/.kobo/kepub/kepub-book.css
Code:
#!/bin/sh
rm /mnt/onboard/.kobo/kepub/kepub-book.css
The text of kepub/epub.kepub books will be displayed white on black. Everything else remains as it was.
Note that this does not work for epub.

You can find Kobo launcher here, and information to kepub-book.css here.

The problem is, the mod sits at a lower level than the kobo reader app (so it should work with any application):
  1. Kobo Reader App (nickel)
  2. QT User Interface Framework
  3. Driver
  4. Hardware

My mods scans the communication between 2) and 3) and makes changes when the nightmode is activated.
