Hi, probably the stupidest question but I just patched the kobo that goes with latest firmware from aug 10. Used this patch to install Plato and KOReader. It boots and says it's patched ... but how do I access any of the readers, how do I actually use them ... ? I have looked over this website and cannot find it.

Managed to find a halfway-stable Wi-Fi AP to setup the build-process on my buildbox instead of my desktop, which I don't have access to, so the current packages have been updated to include the latest NM version, and *should* actually work ^^.

After installing the new version, there is no Koreader and no .add folder in Kobo. Have to back to previous version and then update NM.

Wi-Fi connection

My Kobo Libra H2O automatically updated to FW 4.23.15505 (6da428b202, 8/10/20) yesterday. Automatic sync was not checked, but the FW updated anyway.

I reinstalled the One-Click Install Package for KOReader (OCP-KOReader-v2020.08.zip from the first post in this thread). I used the script with Powershell.

All went well, however, I now cannot connect Wi-Fi connection in KOReader.

I have "Restore Wi-Fi connection on resume" checked.
I also have "Action when Wi-Fi is off: turn on" selected.

"Wi-Fi connection" does not have a checkmark, so when I select it shows "Scanning for networks" then this message immediately pops up:

"Failed to initialize network control client: Failed to connect to wpa_supplicant control socket: /var/run/wpa_supplicant/eth0."

Wi-Fi is enabled in Kobo reader.

When I reboot the device and through NickelMenu select KOReader, KOReader opens, Wi-Fi connection IS checked. However, when I close my cover to put the reader to sleep, then open it again to wake up, the W-Fi connection is no longer checked. Then when I select it again, the above Failed to initialize network control client message appears.

Same behavior when I "Restart KOReader".

I use the calibre wireless connection to send my books to the Libra. And I use Progress sync with my Libra and my phone.

Please let me know if I can provide any more information. I really appreciate your help! Thank you.

We'll release a 2020.08.1 in a few days to deal with that, but in the meantime you could update to the current development version. Either on the device itself (change the channel from stable to development) or by downloading it from http://build.koreader.rocks/download/nightly/

Thank you so much for your help @Frenzie! I installed the version you suggested and it seems to be working correctly now.

Is it safe to mix installing this package with the separate NM-package? Or is some config file being overwritten?

@patrik: No NM configs are overwritten, as there aren't actually any in a stock NM package.

(That's a subtle hint that the doc shipped w/ NM is just that, a doc, don't write stuff in it).

----

That said, there should almost never be need to install the stock NM package when using OCP. In fact, I highly recommend that you don't, because they're not built with the self-destruct flag like the build used for OCP.

The 4.23 thing was a highly irregular occurrence in that I wasn't actually available when it came out. Otherwise, we generally manage to keep stuff in sync and ship NM updates in OCP in a matter of hours.

If I currently have KSM 09, do I need to uninstall it or can I just overwrite it by selecting one of the installation packages?

@Brain: No, you *really* need to uninstall it *completely* first.

Good thing I didn't go for it.. I almost did. Thank you! Is there a tutorial for that? I didn't some searching on the forum, but nothing caught my eye, in relation to this.

A hard factory reset will surely do the trick, but that's probably a wee bit heavy handed. Then again, if it's not documented anywhere properly, eh.

It's documented in the Kobo Start Menu 9 topic, linked in the first post.
