Tiny trick to koreader mini progress bar

Feel annoying the same with me the mini progress bar appears when you just want to go to the next page?

Here is my trick:

open /koreader/defaults.lua as text file, search 'minibar' (no quotation mark) and modify the line below:
Code:
DTAP_ZONE_MINIBAR = {x = 0, y = 15/16, w = 1, h = 1/16}
-- customizable tap zones(rectangles)
-- x: x coordinate of top left corner in proportion of screen width
-- y: y coordinate of top left corner in proportion of screen height
-- w: width of tap zone in proportion of screen width
-- h: height of tap zone in proportion of screen height

So I changed x=0 to x = 1/4, w = 1 to w = 1/4 and the tap area is limited from 1/4 to 1/2 of the width.

continue searching and get:
Code:
-- configure "mini" progress bar
DMINIBAR_ALL_AT_ONCE = false
DMINIBAR_PROGRESSBAR = true
DMINIBAR_TIME = true
DMINIBAR_PAGES = true
DMINIBAR_NEXT_CHAPTER = true
DMINIBAR_BATTERY = true
I just prefer it to show time and pages and all at once, so I deleted
Code:
DMINIBAR_NEXT_CHAPTER = true
DMINIBAR_BATTERY = true
and change DMINIBAR_ALL_AT_ONCE = false to DMINIBAR_ALL_AT_ONCE = true

Everything works fine

Moved to to the dev forum, since this is not about the Kindle's standard firmware.

A short note: Don't change defaults.lua, the changes will get overwritten by the next update. Rather create or edit a file defaults.persistent.lua and just put the changed lines in there. Instead of deleting the lines where the variables are being set to true, just replace "true" by "false" (without parenthesis).
