No, doubt that firmware 1.9.x needs a new patch.

Is there a way to force hyphenation of the text?

Sorry if my questions are naive or stupid but I have not had any experiences with the kobo devices before. I have patched sony's before and jailbroken my paperwhite so I can perform patching. I just picked up a new Aura (not the HD) and wanted to know:

1. if anyone has tried this patcher and whether it works on the new Aura
2. which version I should try to use (5/6/7)

Thanks for any help.

This patcher will not work; the patchs are specific to either 2.6.1 or 2.8.1 firrmware; and do not apply to 2.9.1

@slantybard,
We just have to hope that Metazoa will still be motivated to update the Patcher once the 2.9.x (or higher) fw becomes available to the older devices. I wouldn't have thought he'd be able to attempt anything until his AuraHD has an acceptable upgrade.

I know the 2.9.x firmware is not available for the Aura HD, but what happens when it is available? I'm a fairly new Aura HD owner and have not been through a firmware update. I don't want an automatic firmware update to wipe out my patch changes, and also my ftp/telnet access. Is there any way to prevent an update, short of disabling wifi?

We don't necessarily need to wait on Metazoa though, his patcher tool is entirely configurable, as long as some one can work out the correct byte offsets in the new firmware, e.g., by comparing it to 2.8.1.

Ooh good! but I'm afraid my tech skills are not good enough to be one of the 'someones'.

the patch is great and works fine. thanks a lot for your detailed instructions in this thread. just one question remains: I'm using the patch on an aura hd with page numbers small but displayed. does anyone know how I can add just a couple of px to the bottom margin of the page counter? with the settings set to "* {\n\theight: 25px;\n\tfont-size: 20px;\n" the counter sticks very very close to the bottom of the auras display nearly hanging off screen.

This thread needs more pictures. Evidence that the long paragraph bug is dead! Thanks metazoa!

@skip_sands
As said before, take version 7, but setting of version 6. Uncomment setting in version 7, copy and paste setting from version 6 config file. I use values 60 60 10, which is half of the original values.

So I'm seeing this...
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `Custom reading footer style`
patch_enable = `yes`
# Disable footer example
replace_zlib = 1205FF4, `ReadingFooter {\n\tmin-height: 70px;\n\tmax-height: 70px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 40;\n}\n\nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="kraken"], \nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="phoenix"] {\n\tmin-height: 82px;\n\tmax-height: 82px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 110;\n}\n\nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="dragon"] {\n\tmin-height: 120px;\n\tmax-height: 120px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 20;\n}\n\n* {\n\tfont-size: 16px;\n}\n\n[deviceCodeName="kraken"], \n[deviceCodeName="phoenix"] {\n\tfont-size: 20px;\n}\n\n[deviceCodeName="dragon"] {\n\tfont-size: 26px;\n}\n\n[localeName="ja_JP"] {\n\tfont-family: A-OTF Gothic MB101 Pr6N;\n}`, `* {\n\theight: 5px;\n\tfont-size: 1px;\n\tcolor: transparent;\n}\n\n`
# Decrease footer example
#replace_zlib = 1205FF4, `ReadingFooter {\n\tmin-height: 70px;\n\tmax-height: 70px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 40;\n}\n\nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="kraken"], \nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="phoenix"] {\n\tmin-height: 82px;\n\tmax-height: 82px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 110;\n}\n\nReadingFooter[deviceCodeName="dragon"] {\n\tmin-height: 120px;\n\tmax-height: 120px;\n\tqproperty-footerMargin: 20;\n}\n\n* {\n\tfont-size: 16px;\n}\n\n[deviceCodeName="kraken"], \n[deviceCodeName="phoenix"] {\n\tfont-size: 20px;\n}\n\n[deviceCodeName="dragon"] {\n\tfont-size: 26px;\n}\n\n[localeName="ja_JP"] {\n\tfont-family: A-OTF Gothic MB101 Pr6N;\n}`, `* {\n\theight: 30px;\n\tfont-size: 25px;\n}\n\n`
</Patch>
And I understand this code does nothing. I just want code to turn off footer on Aura HD... I tried DNSB's but I must have [many] syntax errors because tgz does not compile.

Is there any working code I can paste into the conf?... I wish working code was in the conf, deleting a dozen justified # is easier than the /n/ process.

You understand or you KNOW that it does nothing? Using the code as is, without changing anything, the above WILL turn off the footer.

Yes, tried several times with stock conf file (after reverting to stock) and footer has been persistent.

I'm using v7 on HD 2.8.1... I see the update with the Squares progress meter, so I'm confident the .tgz has been applied, but I see no change using stock code.

Maybe you could post the DOS screen output when you run kpg.exe so we can see if there are any execution issues?
