a question of "total backup"

I always copy the whole of the reader content on my laptop before any new hack installation or changes, in case something goes wrong. In the latter case, is it ok if, after a factory reset I just copy the whole backup directory (books and .kobo and all) on the device, or do the hacks also change things in the unaccessible reader directory?

I think taking a screenshot should be added to the sticky: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=444. I have always wondered how to do it, and now I know.

Any thoughts on adding dropbox integration to the sticky? I am thinking of trying it but I am not sure if it still works with the latest firmware, and whether you still need to use the Kobo browser, or if some one has created a hack to do it on the Kobo.

@ShellShock: If you could point me to a thread where DropBox integration was discussed I will add it.

How to turn your Kobo Mini to a display for temperature sensors:

http://www.scherello.de/?id=265

Can you add also the posts in KoboLauncher that explains how to SSH your device? I've found them very useful.

PS: "Google Analytics" link is broken, and "How to backup your Kobo's firmware" has two entries.

Please point me to the SSH tips.

I don't see two entries for the Backup either.
