Just a fix for an issue with Kobo recommendations.

Welcome to my confusion!

It looks like we now have two current versions of the Mark 4 firmware: 2.8.1.b and 2.6.2.

It looks like 2.6.2 is for the Mini. Is it also for the Mark 4 Touch?

Is 2.8.1b for the Glo and/or Aura HD?

I believe that 2.8.1b will be downloaded to a Glo or Aura HD that is not on 2.8.1, however once a device is on 2.8.1 it will not get the B release.

2.6.2 works on the Mark 4 Touch but I sideloaded it so not sure if an auto update would have occurred.

I'm beginning to wonder if Kobo is going to split future updates for the lower resolution (Touch and Mini) and higher resolution (Glo, Aura, Aura HD) devices with the lower resolution devices retaining the carousel interface.

Regards,
David

I asked. At the moment it is:

Touch N905, N905B - 2.5.2
Touch N905C, Mini - 2.6.2
Glo, Aura HD - 2.8.1
Aura - 2.9.0

Kobo are doing something for the Mini and Touch. But, I don't know whether it means a new interface or tweaks to the current one. And I don't know if Pocket will come to them. I think it should, but I haven't really seen anything to confirm one way or the other. But, it won't surprise me to much if they stop updates for the older Touch models.

They said on twitter that recommendations were not updating. Didn't notice myself.

IMPORTANT!
Because here are given direct links to Kobo firmware, both links to 2.8.1 and to 2.8.1B are actually the same link to 2.8.1B.
Perhaps this could be spelled out next to the actual link and/or the duplicate link removed to avoid confusion.
BTW, the same situation is also with 2.6.1

I marked this as important, because Metazoa did not confirm yet that his 2.8.1 patch works also with 2.8.1B. And if you don't want to be the first to try, keep it in mind.
libnickel.so.1.0.0 was changed (different size) so direct hex editing in the newer version may cause unpredictable results.

The patch configuration file for 2.8.1 will NOT work with 2.8.1B; the locations within the libnickel.so will have changed.

Remember that the patcher compares the data it is to change with the values in libnickel.so, so if they are different it will not work.

It is still may be dangerous, depends on how you apply the patch and on what file.
The old 2.8.1 libnickel is already included into the patch. So the patch will work on it.
But would the old libnickel work with the rest of the new firmware?
I am not going to try - there are changes in 27 other files as well and one new hyphenation dictionary (fur Dutch).

I've posted a new conf file for 2.8.1B over in the patcher thread. It's limited in that it only has
  • My line spacing values
  • Custom fonts sizes
  • Custom left & right margins
patches so far.

Unfortunately, I'm on 2.8.1b.. Does anyone maybe accidentally have the old 2.8.1 firmware on his computer? Thanks in advance!
