Random Screensaver

I just found out today that firmware has hidden support for a random screensaver image. If you add a directory called "screensaver" inside the ".kobo" directory, images in it will be selected randomly to be used as the screensaver.

The steps needed to use a random image for the screensaver are:
  1. In the ".kobo" directory, create a directory called "screensaver".
  2. Put the images you want to see as screensavers in the new directory.
  3. Disconnect the device.
  4. In the settings, on the "Energy saving and privacy" screen, turn on "Show current read" and "Show book covers full screen".
  5. Put the device to sleep and see one of the images. If there is only one image, it will always be used.

This came up in a discussion elsewhere that was sort of triggered by the current miniclock discussion. It has been in the firmware since 4.13.x without anyone noticing.
