Are you going to release Mark7 metazoa patches?

Thanks
Um, what do you mean by that? The patches work with all hardware versions.

This is the thread you need for firmware 4.14.12777.

But, since you've already posted there today, I have to assume you know that

Sorry yes i know it, ihave make by my own my patch, and this works fine!, but my question was about the pregenerated KoboRoot files on other places.

When you make the KoboRoot with the patched for your version, this patch applies only to your hardware, correct?

Thanks a lot

Is it possible to add the code to the libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml file? I'm trying to patch this on my Libra H20. This is the code I mean (presumably with tweaks for the Libra H2O):

Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `Changing the info panel in full size screensaver`
patch_enable = `no`
# Multi-version patch: 3.13.1-3.19.5761+

</Patch>
Perhaps this could fit in with the existing "Allow showing info panel on random screensaver" patch? That's this one:

Code:
Allow showing info panel on random screensaver:
  - Enabled: yes
  - Description: |
      See https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=321609. This patch
      allows showing the info panel even when using a random screensaver image
      from .kobo/screensaver (note that full-screen covers needs to be enabled
      for the screensaver to show).
  - ReplaceBytes:
      Base: "PowerViewController::updateCover()"
      Offset: 252
      FindInstBLX: {SymPLT: "FullScreenDragonPowerView::setInfoPanelVisible(bool)"}
      ReplaceInstNOP: true

@mxbndr the patches you are looking at are ay too old to work with the current firmware. Go to the 4.25 patch thread in the Kobo Developer forum and download the patches and then read what they do.

Thanks. I have been using kobopatch_4.25.15875. It has an infopanel patch already, but it's just for showing the infopanel when using random screensavers. I'm hoping to move the infopanel to a corner, and thought the older patches might be a good place to start.

Older patches are not going to work. You need to use the current patches. If what you want is not available, ask for it in the patch thread.

It is possible to change the extended Latin letters to other letters with a custom keyboard patch. There are patches for Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew, and Turkish, or you can make up your own keypad just by replacing the letters in one of these patches:

Cyrillic (lower and upper case) and Arabic:
Attachment 139276Attachment 139277Attachment 139279

Note that the glyphs for Arabic and Hebrew are not available when the device first boots, so the keyboard will just show blank squares until the first time the Aa menu inside a book is opened.

The screenshots above are from my Glo (fw 3.16.0), the keyboards on other devices are a little different.
(1st post) finally got my 1st e-reader, a Kobo Libra H2O. Loved the physical aspects of it, and the hackability (yes, you guys are, partly, the reason I picked this device. For me, ownership means being able to tinker). Anyway, I kinda need the Hebrew keyboard patch, hoping to be able to use it to search in books and also for browsing books in my local library in Hebrew. Seems like this patch was removed some time in the past. Is it b/c of some prosaic reason like it was no longer maintained or is it something that made that patch break something or not work entirely?

Is it possible to patch the kobo to accept decimals for the brightness level, to go below 1% for reading in the dark?

1 is the lowest you can go for the light. If you find that too bright, you can use NikelMenu to put your Kobo in night mode and that makes the light less bright then with the regular background.

Hoping for a little help

Good day, I have a Kobo Aura One that I love. I need to update the firmware but I canít see to find 4.15.12920. I seem to remember that I have to find or use another version.

I am hoping that someone could point me in the right direction so I can update.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why are you wanting to update to a 3 year old version of the firmware? The current version is 4.35.20400.

Anyhow, go to pgaskin's firmware download page, locate the Kobo Aura One entry, click on Other Versions at the end of the line and then browse down to 4.15.12920 and click on it to download that version.

I'm assuming you know how to manually update your Kobo's firmware.
