Notes and other patches:

Notes:

This firmware version has been reported to have problems recognising unnamed external micro-SD cards, see this post. (In Linux you can use gparted [desktop] or mlabel [mtools package, command line] to label a partition.)


Code for the old tiled homescreen seems to have been removed from this firmware version, so the following two patches are no longer available:

`Disable new home screen`
`Enable new home screen`


All keyboard patches are still missing from the .zip file in post #1, will be added later. (See Other patches below for some that are ready for testing.)


A new patch 'Custom synopsis/font size' is included in nickel.patch. Thanks oren64.

An updated `Dictionary frame size - beta8` is included in nickel.patch. Thanks jackie_w.


If you are patching from Linux or Mac you might like to test a new patching script: see post #32


Other patches:

`New home screen increasing cover size` patch, reduces the home screen margins, allowing larger cover images.

`Reading stats/Author name cuts when the series is showing bug fix` fixes a formatting bug on the reading stats page.

`Chapers progress increasing size in Kepub`.

`Custom font to Collection and Authors names`.

`Dictionary text font-family/font-size/line-height - beta`.

Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew keyboard patches for devices other than Aura One.

Keyboard templates to make your own custom keyboard patches.

`Greek Keyboard (Aura One)`


If you know of any other patches for firmware 4.4.9298, post them in this thread and I'll add a link below:
