FWIW: @lori87 appears to have finally got it working .

(I have no idea what was meant by the nightly comment, since it links to GH's releases page, which prominently shows the latest release on top, dated October 7 ).

I have KA1 with SM8 & stable version of koreader-v2015.11-1370-g5ee6c01 installed on it. I would like to upgrade it to the latest beta version so I downloaded koreader-kobo-arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-v2015.11-1868-gb8d9598_2018-10-06, extracted koreader folder to .adds and also .kobo. Rebooted the device but it still mounts the old version of koreader. Any idea what I miss ?

If you had successfully copied the koreader folder into .adds and .kobo, would you not have overwritten the old koreader version?

Edit: I see that you already discovered by yourself.

I've tried to install Koreader with StartMenu9 on Kobo Forma. It fails saying "irregular error". StartMenu works fine, I took a version for Kobo Clara. Is there any solution yet?

I think the Forma was made for KOReader support. The pdf support, the button customization, the option to disable Nickel's forced rotation. Definitely would be using this a lot once you guys get it all figured out (thanks again!)

I installed koreader on my kobo forma modifying "/koreader/frontend/device/kobo/device.lua" adding the following to the devices list:

Code:
-- Kobo Forma:
local KoboFrost = Kobo:new{
    model = "Kobo_frost",
    hasFrontlight = yes,
    hasKeys = yes,
    touch_probe_ev_epoch_time = true,
    touch_snow_protocol = true,
    display_dpi = 300,
    hasNaturalLight = yes,
}
To have the page turn buttons working, add "hasKeys = yes," to the above code (see bolded line) and below code to self.input event_map list:

Code:
			[193] = "RPgBack",
			[194] = "RPgFwd",
And the following on the elseif list:

Code:
elseif codename == "frost" then
    return KoboFrost
This is a simple patch, koreader is not aware of screen orientation so to have touch aligned with screen, you have to open koreader with forma buttons on the right side.

I launch it with fmon and is working fine, I suppose it will work also with KFM or KSM.

Yangshuo, I think that dalamario tested this behaviour on a old copy of KOReader (which had natural light settings of Kobo Aura One hardcoded). In that case you'll need to add:

Code:
    frontlight_settings = {
        frontlight_white = "/sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_led1b",
        frontlight_red = "/sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_led1a",
        frontlight_green = "/sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_ledb",
    },
under
Code:
hasNaturalLight = yes,
But, given the feedback of patrick-tang in https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ment-434685667 and https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ment-434914153, the working settings would be

Code:
frontlight_settings = {
      frontlight_white = "/sys/class/backlight/mxc_msp430.0",
      frontlight_red = "/sys/class/backlight/tlc5947_bl",
}
again under
Code:
hasNaturalLight = yes,

This should make it into tomorrow's (well, err, in 3 hours actually ) nightly, FWIW. Thanks for everyone's tests .

(Rotation is still quirky, though).
