New Qt drivers for Kobo Aura H2O

Hi!

As far as I know, my applications (Launcher, CoolReader, chess, etc) are not working with the new Kobo Aura H2O. So, I've created this thread to investigate and find the fix.

I have no Aura H2O, so you help is very appreciated!

If you want to do this, and I can be of any help (I have an H2O), please let me know.
jlynton, please provide what exactly is not working.

Also I need to know, do you have an experience in connecting to Kobo through SSH? I know that you had Kobo Glo. If so, I'm sure that we'll find the solution soon.

No, I haven't, but it seems that Frenzie, in this post: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=530 has. In that thread he provides a good deal of information.

I installed pbchess, and got to the launcher, which looked fine but did not respond to any input, though I was able to sleep and wake it again with the power button.

I also tried advboot, which got me to the file browser of koreader, but that was unresponsive too, power button not working either.

Then I tried KSM, which was upside-down and unresponsive. I had to reset.

Thanks!

WIth this information I'll try to implement new Qt touchscreen driver for H2O tomorrow.

I also need this model name. E.g. AURAHD=dragon, AURA=phoenix, AURAH2O=???

I reckon it's dahlia? [Edit: I just remembered tshering was already aware of that when he pointed toward a fix for the screen rotation.]

Code:
# cat /bin/kobo_config.sh 
#!/bin/sh
PCB=`ntx_hwconfig -s -p /dev/mmcblk0 PCB`
case $PCB in
        E60610D*) echo trilogy;;
        E60QB*) echo kraken;;
        E606B*) echo kraken;;
        E5061*) echo pixie;;
        E606C*) echo dragon;;
        E606G*) echo dahlia;;
        E606F*) echo phoenix;;
        *) echo trilogy;;
esac
Code:
# ntx_hwconfig -s -p /dev/mmcblk0 PCB
E606G0
Code:
# /bin/kobo_config.sh 
dahlia

Amazing!

Btw, I guess I'm looking in the wrong spot or something, but I can't seem to find any reference to such code names in the sources posted here?

Ah, I'd assumed everything would be in the source tarballs. Thank you.

Thank you Cecell3000! Just would like to mention that it is compatible with Kobo Touch too. Is there any chance you post the source?

I wish the sources were in a Git repository or some such.

But more important, it's working! Now I'll be off to have a look at KOReader.
