A pedantic point... . files and directories are not hidden from programs; a program can choose not to display them to users (for instance the ls command hides them unless the user has requested to see them).

That part of the file structure is not available to programs, unless the program calls the specific address. Yes, if you tell the list command to include All it will do so. The point is that Nickel will not see the files in the "hidden" folder and not try to process them.

Luck;

KEN... NO.... There is NO SUCH THING AS A HIDDEN FILE. The File System APIs RETURN all files / directories regardless of their names. Nickel has DECIDED NOT to process files in directories that start with a period.

Ah, but so many programs do as Nickel does.

This might help. For all practical purposes they are "hidden"

Luck;

Last night I tried to do a hard reset of my KoboGlo and it was stuck on a screen with an hourglass so I tried to restart it but it is not broken, it has remained a blank screen.
I think some startup file is lost.
Can someone send me a link with the image of the micro sd?
thanks

Just had to share...I'm upgrading my Glo now! Found a great deal on a like new Glo (white/pink--easier to see where the seam is). It arrived today, as did my 16gb SD card. After trying a variety of plastic tools I finally got the case apart! Writing the image now. So excited! I love to fiddle and hack. I wouldn't dare try it on my Aura HD, but a $40 Glo, yes.

ETA all done, and patched, I'm so excited! By the way, this Glo had a 4gb card inside.

Only 1 issue...the power slider doesn't seem to do anything, now. Oh well....I can wake/sleep it with my case.

Thanks for the feed back

I have that issue on occasion with mine. I find that if I press/squeeze the back/front together at that point where the switch is, it will make it re-engage. I also find that if I push the switch down into the kobo I find the switch will re-engage as well. If you're adventurous, you can open it a second time and see where the actual switch engages with the switch on the motherboard, as the white plastic switch is NOT physically attached to the switch on the mother board, but more engages with it when you slide it left. I have opened mine 3 times now with no further ill-effect; Once to do the hack, once to take all the photos linked to in my second post, and once to test out the 32 gig internal micro sd card I had comparing them speed wise to the other SD cards I own.

I tried that, and it worked, then it powered off. Oops! I'll just rely on the cover. But at least it's an option.

That is good to know, thanks. Not sure I will open it again. But if I ever upgrade my other Glo, I will take more care when I am putting it back together.

So I decided to open up my other Kobo Glo. I was extremely careful. It had a 2gb card in it. All I had on hand was a 32 gb card. After some trial and error, I finally got the image written and the partition expanded. (I had first tried a class 10 card, and Partition Wizard said it was a bad disk. So I then tried a class 4 card, with success). Reinserted the card and carefully closed it up. Once again, the power slider does not seem to work at all. I am not bothered by this, just mentioning it as a warning to others. The sacrifice was worth it, to me, to have another Kobo with a huge internal memory. In my experience, writing to an external card is a LOT slower than writing to an internal card. I prefer a larger internal memory.
