Other options are Comic Rack, Comitton and SCV. All of them allow you to get a zoom easily. They did not work with my Nook though.

I will get a new SD card and try this android image on GLO. I like the Mobi Comic because have CRM and this in small screen work pretty well to read manga and HQ!
If do not work i will try your alternatives. Thanks.

Have someone developed fast refresh for glo android, as in the nook? It would be very useful to read pdf.
I tried to install norefresh, the application used in nook, and tolino displays a message in german blocking the app.

I installed in my Kobo Glo the rotate apk but it doesn't seem to work properly. When I activate it the screen doesn't seem to notice it when I push an icon. It seems as if it still thought is was in portrait mode...

In this case (maybe with minor modifications in the *.rc files, not remember exactly) the image is running!!
The display is perfect , bootanimation and all the screen seems to be good in full resolution. The strange part is the IR touch: the coordinates are swapped in both x-y and x right-left direction. Yes, it can be easily modify and I'm already done ( Beware: the kernel must be from naberius.de, it contains all the resolution changes we need and MUST be compiled with specific 4.4.3 toolchain as I see ). After that the touch working good, transfer all the points within the resolution (1440x1080) - BUT the system ( maybe the android part) does not allow a point which coordinate greater than approx. 1024, Unfortunatelly this means that the lower part of the screen not touchable - for ex. we have an on-screen keyboard, but can't press a key except from the uppermost line.
I used (because the original u-boot) different flash layout than Marek's Kobo Glo img - 1st partition is the ext4 system, 2nd is the data/cache and third is the w95 one - and it seems that vold not recognize the sdcard partition; both in auto and direct number mode probed in vold.conf.
At the moment we also have no light button as I see, but the power slider works well.
So this means that we will have Android in auraHD - sooner or later.
Anybody can help me to step further solving the touch coordinate problem???
I ran Android on my Aura HD. There are some deficiencies, which, however, do not prevent normal reading.

Hi guys, thanks for bringing Android to the Kobo's.
I installed Android on my Kobo. It boots, it works (because I see the time changing on the home screen), but I can't select anything.
It's not a hardware issue, because I inserted the original SD card, and my Kobo Touch works as it used to work.
It's like the touch screen stops working when I use Android. The power button works. If I pull it the Kobo goes to sleep.

Any ideas why my touch screen isn't working on Android?

Because you have the N905B version, but this Android image is for the N905C.

OK, tnx Angor.
So yes, I do have th N905B version. Is there a way to get an Android version on it? Different image maybe, or a setting I can change?

Unfortunately, no. You need to configure and compile a new kernel for your hardware, especially the touchscreen driver.

Can you make the image from your SD card? I could make the Android SD card for booting from external SD. Even needn't do the full SD card image, only the first 65536 sectors is enough.

This can be done with the following command in Linux:
Code:
dd bs=512 count=65536 if=/dev/sd<SDCARD> | bzip2 -9f >./kobo-touch-N905B-first.img.bz2
