Is there any way to influence the order of the customCommands? They seem to be ordered alphabetically :-(

And is there any way to get rid of the 3 pre-defined custom-commands (Browser, Chess, Tweaks Settings) ? If I want them, I can include them myself.

Beside of that: Great Tweak!

It seems that 3 items are forced : Browser, Chess and Tweak Settings.
For your personnal commands, you can prefix them by a number.
I did it, it works well : (names of commands are in French ... me too
[CustomCommands]
1-Veille=tweaks.sleep()
2-Eteindre=tweaks.powerOff()
3-Redémarrer=tweaks.executeSystemCmd(\"/bin/busybox reboot\")
4-Récompenses=tweaks.readingLife()
5-WiFi=tweaks.connectWifi()

I like the game Sudoku but the numbers one selects in the bottom are not visible,
its just a row of black squares.

Any solution for this or is it by design??

About sudoku, I think it is a firmware 2.4.0 bug

Yes, it's a firmware 2.4.0 bug. But you can still play the game, though it's a bit tedious...

for the record,

works too.

EDIT: I take it back, it does not!

ah-, many thanks, this is great!

And yes I think that at the moment you have to reboot to see any changes when you edit the config file.
of these, based on my Mini on 2.4.0 some seem not to work. More precisely:
-tweaks.connectWifi() freezes the device - must wait a few minutes for a power button reboot to work;
- tweaks.library() and tweaks.powerOff() do not work, in the sense that nothing happens (but don't freeze the device);
- tweaks.openBrowser() works only in the sense that it launches the wifi, but does not open the browser.

Of the other tweaks I have tried, tweaks.sleep(), tweaks.scribble() and reboot and sergeiy's launcher work all fine.

Thanks for this awesome plugin.
One question: how are the tweak settings to get rid of the start screen and replace it with my book library instead?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks a lot for that plugin, it works quite well!

I also wondered if there was a way to directly access the dictionaries (it would actually be great to use the kobo dictionaries without having to go through a painful workflow) ?

Hi, Thanks for the tweak! I just wanted to report that the tweaks.shelves() function, when accessed from the tools menu, is causing a freeze for me (Kobo Glo, 2.4 firmware). Other functions, like the executeSystemCmd(\"busbox reboot\") works for me.

I'm also getting a ghost of the 'Reading Life' menu popping up when I first tap the 'Tools' item, replace after a second by the correct Tools menu.

I installed the tweaks plugin as indicated, everything allright.
Only the Tweaks home menu simply doesn't appear. It's only the headline that shows (Change the contents of the tool menu).
Already removed the plugin and loaded it again, nothing changed.
Would be grateful for any suggestions!

(FW version is 2.4.0)

As Ah- mentioned in the first post, "the menu customization is yet to come", so it's not implemented yet, but you can add new menu entries by editing the ini file.

Question Kobo Tweaks 2.4.0 FW

Thanks for the quick answer!
Hm, that is what I suspected. I have to admit that I never edited any file in my life (grew up still with blackboard), so I don't even know how to find or yet get into this .ini file. would it be very unkind to ask for a step-by-step intoduction for dummies as I am?

Succeeded to find the kobotweaks.ini with Notepad++.
The entry is only this:
[Tweaks]
hideShop=true
hideWishlist=true

What could I do now?

Thanks for your assistance!

I would like to enjoy of the wonderful features of the home screen settings, and tried to insert into the .ini file those entries:

tweaks.library()

tweaks.tweaksSettings()

tweaks.openBrowser()

tweaks.connectWifi()

tweaks.toggleAirplaneMode()

tweaks.uninstallPlugin()

tweaks.sync(true)

tweaks.sleep()

tweaks.powerOff()

tweaks.shelves()

tweaks.readingLife()

tweaks.sudoku()

tweaks.chess()

tweaks.scribble()

tweaks.executeSystemCmd(\"some shell command \")

I took it from the German forum. But when I reopen the .ini file after having rebooted the reader, there appears only this:

[CustomCommands]
Neustart=tweaks.executeSystemCmd(\"busybox reboot\")

[Global]
compatFirmware=0.0.0
dumpLayout=false
scriptSocket=true

[Reader]
showProgress=true
tweakFooter=true

[Tweaks]
hideKoboShop=true
hideShop=true
hideWishList=true
hideWishlist=true
showCustomCmds=true

What is wrong, there, please?
