Instructions for patching firmware 4.11.11980

This patch thread is for firmware 4.11.11980 (88707fe0ac52001a8b180e50bd3d82bb0a16c2a1).

Instructions for patching on Windows, Linux, or macOS with kobopatch:
  1. Download the firmware from here.
  2. Download and unzip kobopatch_4.11.11980.zip from here.
  3. Copy the original firmware you just downloaded into the kobopatch src folder.
  4. Install the firmware on your kobo BEFORE proceeding with the next steps.
  5. Enable patches in the files in the src folder (or use the overrides in kobopatch.yaml to keep your options separate).
  6. Run kobopatch.bat on Windows, or kobopatch.sh on Linux.
  7. If the patching succeeded, a file named KoboRoot.tgz will be created in the out folder. Copy it to the .kobo folder of your device.
  8. Safely remove your device.

Download

See the kobopatch - An improved patching system thread for more details.

"Set swipe to unlock" patch

I have finished making a patch to enable/disable swipe to unlock on any device.

The hardest part was figuring out what actually controls whether the swipe to unlock is displayed (it's added/modified in many places). I eventually found it in a unnamed subroutine which instantiates the AbstractPowerView (which controls the widget for swipe to unlock). I then changed the device check and branch to allow me to choose whether it is enabled or not manually.

Spoiler:
Code:
Set slide to unlock:
  - Enabled: yes
  - Description: |
      Swipe to unlock is enabled by default for the Kobo Forma. This patch allows
      you to enable/disable swipe to unlock for any device.
    # In the subroutine where the AbstractPowerView (used for swipe to unlock) is instantiated:
    # change Device::isFrost() to a MOV instruction to set true/false
  - ReplaceBytes: {Offset: 0x9D9C9E, FindH: 3B F6 08 E1, ReplaceH: 4F F0 01 00}
  - ReplaceBytes: {Offset: 0x9D9CA0, FindH: 01, ReplaceH: 00} # 00 to disable, 01 to enable

Thanks! That's motivation for me to try a patch out for the first time on a Kobo.

No problem! If you have any questions about installing patches, feel free to ask.

Thank you again Geoff for your very quick work.

I'm somewhat destabilized that the two new libnickel patches are set to yes by default. I hope I am not mistaken keeping "yes" for the first one to get rid of the "slide to unlock", and "no" for the second for no change to the settings (mine are in French anyway - and that's NOT a request, I don't want to change anything).

New FW and patch (removed 3rd row on start screen, increased covers/detail info/dictionary overlay, reduced height on header by 33%) work great on the Mark6-H2O Edition 2
