KSM touch driver and rotation test

With each release of a new Kobo reader there arises the challenge to find out whether KSM will work on it, especially whether one of the available touch drivers can be used and which rotation values to set. Therefore I would like to provide a tool that facilitates this process.

Installation (I assume that KSM is not installed on the device):
  • Extract the file KoboRoot.tgz from the uploaded archive and copy it into .kobo of your Kobo reader
  • Eject and disconnect your Kobo reader from the PC
  • Wait until the package is installed and the device restarts
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
NOTE: KoboRoot.epub is not an epub, but a tgz (cf. post #54). Do not try to read it with an epub reader.

Currently (12.12.2018), there seems to be no set of touch drivers available that works for all Kobo models. Let us watch the following two links to see when Sergey updates the touch drivers, and to see for which devices the touch drivers have been confirmed to work, at least indirectly.
