Try it and tell me the result.

If it doesn't work, I think you have to modify the nightmode.ini. It seems to be explain here : http://www.mobileread.xyz/forums/sho...d.php?t=257246 .

Aaaah! That's the problem.
Probably you installed the build13 version in first page, not the build13H2O.
1. Download the file attached and install KoboRoot.tgz from install directory.
2. After the install, connect to PC and edit .kobo/nightmode.ini and look for in the brightness section and change these options to value shown

Code:
[brightness]
1percentPatch = yes
timeout = 4
100 = toggleNightMode
Now on, when brightness is set to 100% (with slide screen slide-botton) and hold it push 4 seconds, toggle Nightmode on/off

First of all ty for your time...
Anyway it isn't working...
I'm posting the .ini file in order to make sure I set it alright.
I tried to set up 100% brightness and keep it for a 10+ secs but isn't working.

@4StarGen
If the install is correct, your ini file is also correct and it must work in all modern fw and models.
Only for clarify, to activate you must open brightness and see the slide-botton on screen. Then touch it and go to 100% and without free, hold on 100% for 4 second at least. The screen must toggle to nightmode.

I do understand that should work, there's no reason it shouldn't.
I noted I have fw 3.15, I should upgrade?
I'm also italian, so I don't know whether the upgrade is available in my country

It's report to work in all fw but in any way you can dowload any fw from here

For some unknow reason, something is wrong. I tell you make a backup of your books and do a factory reset and reinstall Nightmode. With GloHD the internal image is directly 3.15.0.

FWIW, I have a Glo HD with 3.15.0 and I am using night mode.

Yes, it works well with the H2O file ! thanks a lot.

For those who would think it's better to activate the "night mode" when light is 0% rather than when it is ON at 100%, just don't, I tried yesterday : when you are reading in bed, everything is dark, and you want to activate the night mode... good idea to preserve your eyes, but... you put the screen light to 0%, and then you activate the night mode... mmm... how ??? where will you press the screen when you don't see anything ?

I think I will try to set this value at 5%

I'm glad that work for you.

Good about 0% history.
Well, I use 100% because I use many time low values (from 0% to 6%) so for me 5% (the one you try) and 3% (default in ini file) are worst for me. But the two main reasons to use 100% are because is a value that I never will use and because is too easy to reach and hold than any other value (it's located in a extreme of the bar ) .
Obiously anyone can use the value they want.

Did this get borked by the most recent recent Kobo update? Haven't had my Glo long and it prompted me to do a system update so I did. When it was done night mode didn't work so I did the process over again of putting that night mode file (the one for 3.3) on the device, and it actually caused my device to do a factory reset.

Nevermind- not sure what happened but after setting it all back up again after it factory resetted itself, I put the file in that folder, it rebooted and night mode is back.

Maybe I have sensitive eyes but the light on this thing at 0% is way too bright at night unless I do night mode.
