Two noob questions:
  • Do these readers/software interfere with official Kobo FW upgrade process? I mean, is it dangerous to leave sync activated and receive a new 3.whatever software update? Or is it impossible to receive new updates? Do manual FW updates work as always with the same procedure we already know (copying everything inside .kobo in a similar way to these alternative readers upgrades)?
  • How do I uninstall them if needed or wanted? Through a factory reset? Or just deleting some files/directories?
The Kobo firmware updates can make it so you need to reinstall the .png image(s), just follow the steps in the first post. The existence of the alternate readers has no impact on the FW updates. You should be able to use your Kobo, including the sync features and use the WiFi as much as you want. You should receive the FW updates just as you do without the alternate readers installed. The FW update install is not changed by having the alternate readers installed.

The alternate readers can be uninstalled by following the first three steps of the guide in the first post.

Uninstalling Kobo's firmware will require a factory reset - if you want to install an earlier FW.

Luck;
Ken
