Hi all, new poster here.
I just tried the "Allow searches on Extra dictionaries" patch on the latest firmware (4.18.13737), but I'm still getting the "English - English" problem when trying to select my custom dictionary (-ru-en) from the search dialog.

The patch seems to have been applied correctly, as in the language section in the settings menu my custom language now is displayed as "Extra:_ru" (with an underscore rather than a space).

The custom dictionary was installed following these steps:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...25&postcount=1
The dictionary I installed is this one:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...0&postcount=72

Any thoughts why my device still switches to a non-existent "English - English" dictionary whenever I try to select my new custom dictionary?

3. Update database file.
Check the KoboReader.sqlite file. And make sure you actually added this dictionary.

I believe I did, I'm attaching a screenshot of the entry to this post. Do you see anything wrong with it?

Code:
Extra:_ru-en Russian-English
Fix

Even not so, probably this will not work... Better so:
Code:
Extra:_r1 Russian-English
And rename the dictionary, to dicthtml-r1.zip for example.

Just tried this, but it still won't let me select it. (The device now shows an entry "Extra:_ru-en Russian-English" in the dropdown menu, but when I select it, it still switches to English.)

Edit: Just saw your last post, I'll try that....

It's working on my original H2O.

You are right, renaming the file and the sqlite entry like this works perfectly. Thank you!

Alright. Thanks for al the work you've already done.

I'll be patient.

If you read books in Russian, more correct
Code:
ExtraLocales: ru, r1
I'm not sure, but that's how the language of the book should be properly defined in details.

Thank you for responding.

I figured out a "workaround" for this issue: It seems that when I use my Mac to compress the downloaded original firmware folder (Safari UNcompresses it by default), when placed in the src folder, it leads to the “could not find KoboRoot.tgz” error when running kobopatch.sh in Terminal.

So, in Safari I unchecked "open 'safe' files after downloading" in the preferences and was able to put THAT original, unaltered ZIP file in the src folder and now the process works in Terminal without a hitch. Yay!

I don't know what Apple does differently when it comes to compressing folders into ZIP files, but the difference is enough to trip up the kobopatch.sh script when run in Terminal. I’ll leave it to the tech gurus to figure that out, but in the meantime hopefully my workaround will save some other Mac user from pulling their hair out in future.

I ran into a similar issue when I uncompressed the firmware source file and then recompressed it with 7-Zip. The advanced settings I used with 7-Zip were not accepted by the unpacking software used by Kobopatch. When I reset the compression options to normal and deflate, Kobopatch was happy.
