How to update firmware without affecting installed patch?

Please, can someone share how to update kobo reader firmware without affecting the patches installed?

I have several favorite patches installed, however, I'd to re-install it each time I update the reader's firmware.

Thank you so much in advance.

You need to go to the patch thread for the firmware you've just installed and reapply the patches again.

There's no way to do what you want. The patches are applied to files that must be replaced during the firmware update.

My advice would be to use the overrides section in kobopatch.yaml and place your yes/no answers in kobopatch.yaml. Save that chunk of the file as another files (I use overrides.txt) which will not be overwritten when I update the kobopatcher for the new firmware. After the kobopatch update, I copy/paste the saved overrides into the new kobopatch.yaml. About 3 seconds to have the patches I use ready for the new firmware. Occasionally, patches will be removed and you will have to remove them but that's not all that often. I've attached a copy of the overrides.txt I use -- just modify it as you want, paste it into the right spot in kobopatch.yaml and bob's your uncle.

The code block here is the lines in the original kobopatch.yaml that need to be replaced:
Spoiler:

Code:
## You can put lines in the following section to override the enabled state of patches.
## The indentation matters! Each override should be indented by 4 spaces. Add to the 
## section below. This section can be copy and pasted into newer patch versions to
## keep your selections.
##
## Example of how it should look:
## overrides:
##   src/nickel.yaml:
##     Custom synopsis/details line spacing: yes
##     Whatever the yaml is called: no
##   src/libadobe.so.yaml:
##     You get the idea: yes
overrides:
  src/nickel.yaml:
  src/libadobe.so.yaml:
  src/libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml:
  src/librmsdk.so.1.0.0.yaml:
