I installed the 4.11.11980 on my H20 v2 (Mark6) without problems (and without any modifications of the KoboRoot.tgz). Tested only with kepub (epub transferred via Calibre as kepub). Works as expected, fast and stable.

Thank you Now I've got it. All my strong magnets are so tiny I obviously wasn't getting it just right. My big fridge magnets are too weak to do anything at all.

Yes, it's very finicky getting it to work. The magnet underneath the plastic in my video is round, about 2.5 cm in diameter and fairly thick as fridge magnets go.

Success!

Thanks to your R&D I've been able to convert the original Forma box into a temporary sleepcover to avoid the 'Swipe to unlock'. The paper envelope stuck to the inside of the lid is quite convenient for holding in place a suitable flat magnet taped to an index card.

It will have to do until the cheap 3rd-party cases turn up (if they ever do) or until someone is successful creating a patch to remove 'Swipe to unlock'.

Now back to the real topic of this thread ...

Now that is very clever.

I'd just been using the box as a temporary cover. Afraid someone might otherwise use my Forma as a drink coaster.

The original post read H2O v2 which I took as the original H2O edition 2 not the H2O edition 2 version 2.

The only purpose of this firmware update is to fix the broken stylesheets in kepubs. There should be no other changes compared to 4.11.11976.

It will only be released to the Forma.

No problem! I'm going to try and figure out how to get rid of the slide to unlock later this week.

Sorry, it is Kobo H2O Edition 2 (and Version 1 with Mark 6)

But, it still works, read last night about 1 hour without problems, freezes or other hick-ups.

Can confirm this, at least for my H20 model.

Installed it on an original H20, upgrade went without hitch and at first sight it seems there are no problems...
The reader in general seems(could be a placebo) snappier with this firmware, compared to 4.9.11314 that i previously had on.
CBZ files definitely open faster, page turn on cbz might be bit better but i cant notice big difference.

Given that this is Forma firmware, was hoping that my screen will grow an inch, but alas
