Yes. When you install a new firmware, all the patches are gone.

I think so. Perhaps some of them will be kept but it's better to install all of them.

What I want to know is can the Forma buttons be disabled or patched away?

In the current official firmware for them the Formas buttons can not be disabled. I doubt this will be different in 4.16 as Iíve seen nothing to indicate it as an added setting.

Given the work Iíve seen on the miniclock mod I think itís possible to patch but itíd be hit and miss.

Itís worth mentioning this would, IMO, be a silly patch anyway. The Formas buttons arenít so easy to press that youíll accidentally trigger them. I imagine the same is true for the Libras buttons.

It should youíd have to grab the firmware for the Libra. That it works on a Clara is a good indication itíll work on the Forma as well. And given the similarities between the Forma and Libra Iíd imagine itíd be the most likely to have the least issues.

If you opt to try it let us know. Iím pretty tempted to see how this new firmware works on my Forma as well.

Yeah, there's pretty much no reason for this not to work on other Mk. 7 devices at least. I know it at least includes a Forma kernel update (much like the previous 4.16 build did, too).

I hope this means that text selection (highlighting text) will be better/easier.

I will wait eagerly for some (braver) soul to report that it works fine on the H2O2 Mk2. The changes in the firmware if they apply to the H2O2 may Liberate me from a growing urge to buy a new device I don't need.

Kobo has already officially confirmed that those features are coming to the other Kobos, presumably after the next update. It's just a matter of how patient you are and if you want the Libra hardware (comfortlight, buttons, shape, etc).

Yep, I'm still trying to decide if I like the idea of the buttons. I get by just fine without them on my H2O2, so the firmware upgrade may be enough. Hopefully the Libra will show up in physical retailers here before too long and I can try holding on to see if the buttons are a pro or a con - the 300 dpi is a pro, as is the slightly reduced weight.
