Hello, thank you for this patch, I recently acquired a H20 and hate the fnac logo that appears in sleep mode. Thanks to this patch it begins with showing the fnac logo again but then one of the new images appear. It's a lot better, but is it possible to somehow delete the fnac logo completely ?

"Fnac" is the shop where I bought the kobo, I had no idea this logo would appear.

@hannah: I believe you can change the shop affiliation somehow, but that's likely a discussion for another thread. I won't change the way the Kobo itself displays things on shutdown. This mod just pushes its own image to the screen at the right moment, it does not modify any of the original behaviour.

You can change that in .kobo/affiliate.conf with a unix-like (notepad++) text editor like this:
Code:
[General]
affiliate=kobo

frostschutz, you are right, and I'm sorry, I didn't realise I was off topic I'm new to all of this.

Updated the attachment in the first post - please test it, it should work for both 3.12 and 3.13 firmwares now. Still H2O only, didn't get around to add support for other platforms yet...

Glad you like it in any case.

@barobach_so: there is no uninstall method currently, but I'll add one in the next version. Until then you can just delete/rename the .ScreenSaver folder and the mod will be "inactive".

@Cecell3000: wow, thanks...I'll add this in the next version as well.

So I installed this on my H20 running 3.13.1

It seems to have enlarged the font used for the homescreen slightly, which I could live with.

However when I try to go in to my library the library is overlayed on top of my homescreen, rather than replacing it.


This seems to be the case with -everything- that should replace the current screen.

Sort of frustrating as it makes doing anything a pain in the butt.

Odd re-applying the 3.13.1 update seems to have resolved the issue. Thanks for this, it was the one feature I'd missed from my previous ereader.
