Nickel/KOReader/coolreader can't, but a different kernel driver might be able to do some good there.

Strange is, if it is driver related, why Kobo didn't solved this issue? I'm pretty sure they know about it, it is that obvious.

On the other hand, Kobo isn't that much into own software, so it is possible it can be (relatively) easy to solve.

In my experience, Kobo has only extremely rarely shipped kernel updates with a FW update (compare that to a Kindle, where basically every update potentially contains a crapload of kernel changes).

I'm as puzzled as you as to the reason why.

It does make things nice and stable. I'm much more confused about half of the drivers implementing some weird custom protocol instead of the standard Linux stuff. It seems like it'd be less work to solve in the kernel driver (since you have to write it anyway) than to keep adding workarounds in userspace.

I'm trying to do an OTA update on my Clara HD, but it keeps failing.

I use the ota.koreader.rocks/ development server/channel

As such, I tried to update, and when it failed, the ota/ directory contained the following(I used wget to add the targz):
Code:
[root@(none) ota]# ls -lah
total 492532
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root        4.0K Sep 29 10:42 .
drwxr-xr-x   24 root     root        4.0K Sep 29 10:31 ..
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       31.9M Sep 29 10:41 koreader-kobo-arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-v2015.11-1857-ga6df153_2018-09-24.targz
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      376.3K Sep 29 10:42 koreader-kobo-latest-nightly.zsync
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      448.7M Sep 29 10:43 koreader.installed.tar
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       37.1K Jul 17 06:12 package.index
I then tried executing the below:

Code:
[root@(none) koreader]# ./zsync -i ota/koreader.installed.tar -o ota/koreader.updated.tar -u ota/ ota/koreader-kobo-latest-nightly.zsync
#################### 100.0% 3707.7 kBps DONE     

Done reading ota/koreader.installed.tar. 78.2% of target obtained.      
failed to retrieve from ota/koreader-kobo-arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-v2015.11-1857-ga6df153_2018-09-24.targz
Not all of the required data could be downloaded, and the remaining data could not be retrieved from any of the download URLs. Incomplete transfer left in ota/koreader.updated.tar.part.
(If this is the download filename with .part appended, zsync will automatically pick this up and reuse the data it has already done if you retry in this dir.)
I believe that i'm currently on build 2015.11-1782-g4646721_2018-07-16 (this is what koreader reports)

EDIT: I should really check github more often. https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/4242

Right, I should tag a new release on GH with that fix included.

I'm reading a lot of mangas which are just imagefiles in a zip file, this works perfectly fine with KOReader, but I do have a request/question:

In settings i set it that page fits image, which creates white bars on the sides.

Could these be made black or grey instead?

Edit:

Another question: now that SSH is working with KOReader, will SFTP outgoing connections be possible?

Did you try creating a persistent.defaults.lua with settings like DBACKGROUND_COLOR and DOUTER_PAGE_COLOR? I'm not sure otoh but they might do what you're looking for.

Regarding SSH, Dropbear is only a server. Outgoing would require completely separate libraries/glue.

I did try those, but I thought they were values from 0 through 255, but now i checked the remarks in defaults.lua, and now it works!

So I have a Kobo Aura H20 Edition 2 that I just bought, and want to install koreader, is this thread still valid despite being several years old? Will the tutorial on post 1 still work for me?

Yup, just use KFmon + Koreader on your device and follow the installations steps on the Kute File Monitor thread
