Device: Kobo touch
Upgrading kernel kobo touch

Hi guys,

I'd like to connect a small keyboard to my kobo touch and use it to take notes without having to carry a laptop. I think the touch can operate in USB on-the-go or host mode and allow me to do that. I have recompiled the kernel with hid support and the usbhid module, but so far I have been unable to replace the kernel in the device.

According to this outdated README, I should just place the kernel zImage under .kobo/upgrade/ in the public flash partition and the kernel should be automatically replaced upon unmounting and unplugging the kobo, but that does not work for me. Has any of you replaced the kernel of a kobo touch or know the correct procedure?

I am running 1.9.17 and I have already made a backup of the internal SD card.
