Instructions for patching firmware 4.17.13694

This patch thread is for firmware 4.17.13694 (cb7d9876184f6044b6ce1a8677dacef1ec9376c5) and 4.17.13651 (d06673211ea848c626ab33d4a9ff023b28b111fd).

Instructions for patching on Windows, Linux, or macOS with kobopatch:
  1. Download the Kobo firmware release
    You can find the download links here here.
  2. Download and extract the patch zip
    Download and unzip kobopatch_4.17.13694.zip from here.
  3. Copy the firmware file to the src folder
    Copy the original firmware you just downloaded into the kobopatch src folder.
  4. Install the firmware if needed
    Install the firmware on your kobo BEFORE proceeding with the next steps. You can do this by extracting the contents of the firmware zip into the .kobo folder and ejecting.
  5. Choose your patches from the files in the src folder
    Enable patches in the files in the src folder (or use the overrides in kobopatch.yaml to keep your options separate).
  6. Run kobopatch
    Double-click kobopatch.bat on Windows, or run ./kobopatch.sh on Linux.
  7. Install the patches by copying KoboRoot.tgz into the .kobo folder of your device
    If the patching succeeded, a file named KoboRoot.tgz will be created in the out folder. Copy it to the .kobo folder of your device. Safely remove your device once you are finished. On Linux, you may have to press Ctrl+H to show the .kobo folder.

This is the largest release (both for the patches and firmware) so far. The work for this release spanned over 3 firmware versions and took many hours of time (it usually only takes ~1 hour) from multiple contributors. A extra large thanks goes to jackie_w and NiLuJe for their extensive (at least 10 hours) of work for this release. Jackie put a lot of work and effort into updating and rewriting nickel patches, and she testing and cross-verified everything I updated. NiLuJe reviewed code for the kobopatch build script, my dotfiles mod for 4.17.13651, and the patch documentation. See the release notes below for full credits.
