I have once again reflashed the 4.34 firmware on the Libra, patched the firmware (triple checked it's the correct firmware package I've downloaded) and again, the device runs the the package and updates as it should, the changes just doesn't apply. Sigh.. I give up
Not about errors. Maybe the patches that you intend to use are not rnabled (maybe enabled in the indivifual nickrl and libnickel files but overridden in your yaml file. Did you look athis possibility already?

I have only edited the individual nickel and libnickel files, not made any overrides.
As I mentioned, it works on my Aura.

Wtf, tried a different USB cable and suddenly it worked... The cable has been working fine for transferring books, updating the firmware, installing nickel menu etc... I have no idea what difference it made...

I'm actually glad to have seen your post, seems I'm not the only one - I thought I was going mad. Been having trouble patching since 4.31 on my Libra 2 as well.

I've made sure to check if the patches aren't missing in the current version's changelog, .tgz outputs fine, log indicates no problems but they never seem to apply on my device. Flashes, device says it's updating, reboots and nothing seems to have changed. Super odd.

Weirder yet is that it does work eventually, will take anywhere from 10-20+ consecutive tries of copying over the .tgz, letting it flash, if it doesn't work, try again. Can't seem to have found anything consistent about it, I've done all sorts, making sure to uninstall nickelmenu and nickelclock before flashing, running kobopatch (ie. outputting) on my root drive instead of removable storage. Both of these seem to have worked for me but I can't imagine why, just seems like a coincidence if anything.

The only thing that has been consistent about getting the patches to apply is just keep repeating it until it works eventually.

Really curious behaviour. Don't want to seem like I'm complaining, not my intention, glad that it works at all and grateful that kobopatch exists. Just wanted to report my experience because I thought it was just me until now!

So it took me three goes , Mars95 many more, and you many more too - assuming the different USB cable was coincidence .. very odd.
I'd be surprised if it's the patch at fault, perhaps just one of the peculiar glitches built into the Libra 2 firmware?
But it is reassuring that we're not on our own with this

Un-Force user text-align in div,p tags in KePubs is one I have set to no. I don't care to override. When you do override the justification, you override center and right.
