Shortcut to Pocket?

I've sideloaded 3.1.1 on my Mini to get Pocket, and the firmware seems to work, however I have difficulty accessing pocket in the Library, as the only possibilites in the drop down menu are Books, Previews and My Collections.
The home screen is not like the lighted models, and looks like this.
If I sync, any Pocket article populates the home screen, and if I read it and call up the context menu I can go to an "Article" shelf, from which I have access to various other functions, but I cannot go to "Articles" directly.

Is there any modification to the conf file that I could do? Or could I perphaps call up the "Articles" with a Tweak command?

I realised 3.1.1 is not supposed to run on the Mini, but I'd love to be able to make it work properly.

Same thing here. Was there ever a Pocket choice in the dropdown menu on 3.1.0 (and yes, Paola and I know we are not supposed to run 3.X.X on the Mini) ?

Wow, I've literally just made an account to ask about this. I'm running Glo and noticed about the disappearance of Pocket section in the Library dropdown menu a few days ago. Downgraded to 3.0.0 and Pocket returned, but when I reupgraded to 3.1.1 it disappeared again. I'm reinstalling 3.0.0 right now as no other solution seems to exist.

I can assure you that on 3.1.1 (761b066420, 12/11/13) on my Glo, Pocket is there and works fine.

On the main menu it's under Library | Articles from Pocket, and the account info. is under Settings | Accounts.

I had 3.1.1 on previously as well and Pocket worked fine. It just disappeared out of the blue for no apparent reason one day.

Someone recently bought a a Kobo in Japan and found it didn't have Pocket. The fix was to change the affiliate. This is in ".kobo/affiliate.conf". If the affiliate is something other than "Kobo", some functions can be removed or changed.

I have Kobo as affiliate, nothing else, and still no Articles in Library. I have Pocket (and am signed in) under Accounts though.

same here. All seems to work: I have the Pocket button in the browser, Pocket listed in the account details, can sync articles and read them.

When inside an article i can call the context menu and, besides the font, settings and navigation symbols I have another one that allows me to mark them as favourites, archive them or delete the current article, AND on the bottom right corner I have a shortcut to go back to the list of Articles. So from inside a pocket article I can then go to the list of pocket articles, but this is the only way. In short, currently to access pocket I have to have a recently downloaded article showing in the home page, and access the rest from them.

Since however all the "Pocket paraphernalia" is there, surely there must be a way of showing it/accessing it from the home screen?

I thought one possibility was to change the .conf file to tell it to show pocket articles, but I don't know how to do that, as all the options I am aware of are to change the ordering of books in either shelves or library, not which options (Books, Library, My Collections, Articles) to show.

Next I thought of using the following tweak (the tweaks do work in 3.1.1):
Quote:
Pocket=tweaks.articles()
since
Quote:
tweaks.library()
works, but for Pocket it does not seem to do anything. I tried monkey style to look into libnickel to guess the command for pocket, but (unsurprisingly) I have not been able to open it.

sorry, just to clarify what the context menu looks like from inside a Pocket article (first picture) and the list of articles that I can get to by clicking on "Articles" in the bottom left corner of the first screen (unfortunately the screenshots does not capture the pop up menus)
