I found how to create a fake user on a new machine (or after a factory reset). This is enough to enable the WiFi and to avoid the registration screen at startup. Of course, accessing the Kobo bookstore via wifi is not possible. The original 1.9 firmware does not do automatic upgrade via WiFi so a manual upgrade is still needed (download the latest firmware at http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...ade-1.9.12.zip and unzip it inside the .kobo directory)

The user is registered in the table "user" of the database .kobo/KoboReader.sqlite
The database can be manipulated with the program sqlite3

Use that trick at your own risk. I recommend that you backup the database file (or the whole kobo device)

Execute the command

sqlite3 .kobo/KoboReader.sqlite

then add a fake user with

INSERT INTO "user" VALUES('aaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaa','aaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaa','xxxx@xxxx.xx','xxxx@xxxx.xx','2aaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaa==');

The whole database can be dumped with

echo .dump | sqlite3 .kobo/KoboReader.sqlite
