I believe the firmware will work on the Vision 6. I'm not sure if it'll be released for it.

  • Supported demo regions (TODO: actually figure out which)
  • Supported locales (TODO: actually figure out which)
  • Tolino wifi
  • Something about the my books filtering by language (TODO: look at this more)
  • Larger dictionary font size (wtf, lol)

  • Color instead of Colour in various places
  • kobo sync services disabled
  • custom tolino-branded power-off image
  • partition is named eReader instead of KOBOeReader
  • sign out is just sign out, not a soft reset (I think, need to confirm)
  • "Energy saving" instead of "Energy saving and privacy" (cause it doesn't track user data lol)
  • various about/legal/help text changes
  • no "Repair account" option (probably since you can just sign out and back in)
  • "Kobo Store -> "Store", "Shop Kobo" -> "Shop" in various places
  • no automatic notebook backup
  • no hotspot test (I think, need to confirm)
  • Different Qt RCC file loaded

Is this the new Tolino (Kobo-ized) firmware, or the old that you're using for comparison?

It's the new one, but note that it still appears to be incomplete (tolino cloud sync is still a button in dev options lol).

I would be very interested to know whether the KEPUB format is supported on the Tolino devices, as we know it from the Kobo devices.

It's interesting that we're essentially having a conversation about Kobo/Tolino software over three different forums

Will tolino become a sub-forum of Kobo (since it's based on kobo)? Or will kobo become one of tolino (since it's mostly adding stuff compared to kobo-tolino)? Or will we have Tolino device, Kobo device, and Kobo firmware forums? Or will we have the Kobo forum as the place to discuss firmware stuff with a link from the Tolino forum? Or will we continue to duplicate discussions?

I would think it would be supported, but I'll be looking into that specifically soon-ish. We won't know for certain until an upcoming firmware release though, as this one is incomplete.
