Does this work for the entire Aura series?

I am trying to install it on Aura One but it doesnt work. There is no automatic reboot and after manual reboot there are no changes.

Thanks

Huh? In the last two or three pages nearly all the posts are discussing this. And there are at least five posts with direct links to the version of the hack needed for firmware starting with 4.2.8432.

It works on all Kobo devices. There is a version for most firmware versions. But, if the device didn't restart and do an install, it means you did the install incorrectly. You need to copy the KoboRoot.tgz file to the .kobo directory. Do not unpack the file and make sure the filename is correct.

Alright, I copied the extracted folders directly. My bad

So following your instuctions it did a reboot. But I didnt manage to activate it (version 13).
Now I did an uninstall and looking for another version.
My firmware is 4.1.7729


Edit:
Got it to work now, by altering the .ini

Thanks

Hi,

for some stupid reason i decided to update my Kobo Glo HD this afternoon and boy have i regretted it.. I lost the night mode toggle at 100%

What i did until now:
- first I downloaded the file from github, dragged the .tgz file from the zip-file to the .kobo folder on my device, safely unplugged it , let it reboot and tried to toggle night mode on. but it didn't work.
- then i did some research on this forum and found another build. So i tried that using the same methodology as before. Unfortunately, it did not work either.
- so i thought maybe best to reset the device to factory settings and try again. While waiting for the factory reset i found thread #512 speaking of the build13H2O. I downloaded that, installed it, edited the ini file as mentioned, but once again it did not work.

What am i doing wrong? current software version is 4,3,8945

Thanks in advance!

PS: Never will i update for no reason, everything worked fine.

Edit: finally got it working with this version:
https://github.com/gtalusan/kobo-nig...r/KoboRoot.tgz
thanks all!

Read the last few pages of this thread. They are all about what version of the nightmode hack are needed for the recent firmware versions.

Has the time come to add this hack to the wiki and try to centralize the different versions on a single page?
