I'm working on it. And also I'm working on USB, backlight, G-sensor and sleepcover. And finally, I want to build Android from scratch, not using image from Tolino Shine that being used now.

Details will be posted on the blog.

You are using a version from phj.hu/auraHD. That kernel is for Kobo Glo (Tolino Shine). My version is using the kernel for AuraHD, it just hasn't fully debugged yet. I can put the kernel from phj.hu/auraHD/ while the kernel for AuraHD isn't debugged.

The first post is updated with the links for Dual Booting.
Thank you angor00. This is great work!

I tested the Glo version and I was able to Dual Boot Nickel - Android just fine!

Some observations:
- I don't have the option to reset the device anymore, by keeping the light button pressed when I power on, even without the external sd attached.

- When on Android, the light button is not used as "Back" button.
I miss this, because sometimes while experimenting with various things, the Button savior app may crash, leaving me with no button to get out of the mess I created ;o)
I wonder if its possible to regain its use after using it for the initial android boot.

- I couldn't create a backup from the internal sd to external.
At the original translation there are two points where the backup should happen. One after each restart from the KoboRoot.tgz file copy.
I must be doing something wrong, but it doesn't matter because I already have images of everything.

Some questions for angor00
What is changed in your image?
At first, I thought it was only the unpartitioned first part of the image, so, I copied the System and Data partitions from my image (a lot of customization I didn't want to do from scratch).
It didn't work.
When I copied the System partition back, it booted fine.
I did copy my modded files manually, so its OK, but since you're messing with the system, I wanted to ask you if you can fix the only things missing from the Glo (and the AuraHD) kernel. The 1 GHz CPU clock and the magnetic On-Off switch.

Even without them though, This is Great Work!

Probably a silly question, but how does one choose between booting Android or Nickel on a Touch?

I think you have to press and hold the "Home" button when you turn the device on.

Try to add to the top of the file "Android\ System/system/usr/keylayout/mxckpd.kl" the following line:
Code:
key 90    HOME              WAKE

I've tried that, but can't get it to work. The LED goes red which is probably not a good sign!

It works!
Great!
Thank you very much.

On a side note, is there a card image for the Glo, or Touch, to Factory Reset?
I'm trying to convert the AuraHD one, by copying the recovery.fs partition of my Glo card and installing the dualboot-android-glo-touch.zip patch to make it bootable, but it dosn't work ...

I need the archive of "recoveryfs" partition from Glo to make the SD image.

The image looks like working. Try to make a card from that image here.
