3. Downloaded original 4.15.12920 firmware
4. Copied original 4.15.12920 zip file to SRC folder in unzipped patched version
5. Copied patched folder to root directory of kobo
6. Unmounted

I've read elsewhere that the update should start automatically, but that is not happening.
Did you put the new KoboRoot.tgz in the .kobo directory?

Yep, feel even more stupid now. I was reading it as doing that step after the updating. Thanks for the help.

Hey guys,
is the kobopatch.yaml "only" used for activating my "standard-patches", or is it also possible to preset values for the patches?
For example the "Custom reading footer style"-patch. I like to have it smaller than the preset, could I preset the smaller value?

Not currently. The current way it is usually done is to copy the patch into another file for just your customizations, add it to the patches map, then override it for that file. This allows you to update by overwriting the old patch files, then updating your customizations separately. I am planning to implement custom values for the patches once I figure out a clean way to do it.

Okay, thank you for the clarification and keep up your good work! My Kobo is getting even better with your patches!

Both page turn sides go next: Makes it so you can tap on either side of the screen to go to the next page.
Reduce top/bottom page spacer: Reduces the extra margin on the top/bottom of books which appeared after the official remove title/footer options were added a few versions ago.

Sorry!! I downloaded an older version of kobopatch by mistake. It's ok. Thanks.

Does this patch have an invert / night mode option? I have a visual problem that’s getting worse and need a white text black background. My kobo is a Glo Hd and my computer a Mac. Also I have never tried to do anything like this before so I may be asking for more help. A bit embarrassing but there we are.

There's no need to be embarrassed! There is a patch for replacing the Adobe page numbers setting with an invert screen option in the libnickel patch file.

Thanks. I have a feeling this may be beyond me. I have downloaded firmware and put zipped file in str folder of the patch. I think that's right? But I have literally no idea what to do next. I don't have the Kobo connected. I updated the firmware on the Kobo a while back.

You don't need to do any patching. Just add the following to the "Kobo eReader.conf" file in the directory ".kobo/Kobo":
Code:
[FeatureSettings]
InvertScreen=true

Note that the developer options menu is under device information.
