It is possible, as stated above, that the best thing is to set a 5min timeout, and just let it keep cycling naturally.
Thanks to both of you. I will continue to be patient. It's probably good for me!

Good luck. Here's something weird: right after mentioning that my 'line' ran diagonally across a corner (and the picture filled in top then bottom), it started running normally! After more than a month of the weird behavior. Anyway, glad to have this hack.. like having my choice of screensavers.

The 4/2 firmware update seems to have tossed an odd issue in to this. It still works on my Forma though it goes to a blank sleep screen then to the image. However that’s not the odd issue I’m writing about.

This no longer reflects the rotation of the screen. It will always display as if the buttons were on the left.

Hello,

Thanks a lot for this amazing thread. Looks like I just have the same problem as @IanScuffling...

I follow all the steps, the .tar is gone and the .addons has been sucessfully created, but looks like it's not working

And I wish I do not have to wait months to have it works..

Any Idea ? Maybe author of the OP ?

Thanks

Maybe someone who have the same kobo model could post the config file.

You have to re-detect scanline for this version. Remove old scanline value from screensaver.cfg, then let the device drop into standby, and from standby into poweroff. (Wait some time between those steps. Scanline detection takes a few seconds, and if you just rebooted, some seconds before the mod is even active.)

My H2O is using 4.8.11073 firmware, and detected these scanlines:

Code:
#
# Standby scanline autodetected Sat Oct 27 18:18:56 CEST 2018
#   If this value does not work, remove it so it will be re-detected.
#
standby=1231: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

It worked on a Kobo Aura One (NOT limited edition) running the firmware 4.13.12638

PS: I first disabled in the settings:
-battery indicator while charging
-show current read in sleeping mode

I set 5 minutes to sleeping mode and 10 to powered off

It'd need a debug/change in order to be easily installed

Anyway

I've also tested it and it works on my Clara HD and Aura One.
