Looks like some of them have a 8bpp interface to 4bpp hardware, with the top and bottom 4 being the same.

I'm **way** out of my depth here (decent on Python but embedded Linux - ) but if there's any way I can help sort this for those of us with these devices let me know.

Out of interest, I saw the weather app makes a call to update the e-ink after the final pygame call - but did pygame itself need modifying to talk to a / the Kobo's framebuffer?

Edit: looks like there's more detail on the kindle buffers here.
