Is there something in the new version that doesn't exist in the last one that I might be trying to change in my yaml?

Thanks!
Dumb question:

you updated to latest firmware 4.21.15015 before apply the patch?

Can I see your kobopatch configuration? None of the patches should be able to cause a bootloop (unless KoboRoot.tgz wasn't copied correctly)...

The only patches I can think of which have the potential to crash libnickel upon startup is "Disable all tutorial dialogs" (but this is extremely unlikely to succeed while patching and fail at runtime), "Customize ComfortLight settings" (but I tested that one explicitly), the SmartLink patches (but I tested those more than usual last night), "Rename new home screen footer" (but this can't really fail in any way), "Remove recommendations (row1col2) from home screen" (but this is quite simple), and "Larger Sleep/Power-off timeouts" (if it's a patch issue, this is the most likely; Edit: I just checked this one, and it looks fine to me).

Did you eject your Kobo properly and upgrade to 15015 beforehand?

You got it! That's what I get for not messing with it for a while and relying on memory (which isn't what it used to be!).

I'll give it another go.....

I have been using this method:
1. I made a directory called "kobopatch-custom" in the same directory I have the "kobopatch_4.21.15015" directory.
In the "kobopatch-custom" directory I have this folder structure:
Code:
   root\addons\miniclock
   root\etc\udev\rules.d
   root\usr\local\MiniClock
2. I unpacked the latest release of MiniClock from post #311 and copied the files to the corresponding directories in my "kobopatch-custom" folder structure.

3. I inserted the following line at the end of the "kobopatch.yaml" file:

Code:
files:
  # MiniClock files
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/usr/local/MiniClock/devinputeventdump: usr/local/MiniClock/devinputeventdump
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/usr/local/MiniClock/fbink: usr/local/MiniClock/fbink
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/usr/local/MiniClock/miniclock.sh: usr/local/MiniClock/miniclock.sh
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/etc/udev/rules.d/miniclock.rules: etc/udev/rules.d/miniclock.rules
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/addons/miniclock/miniclock.cfg: .addons/miniclock/miniclock
The "miniclock.cfg" file I have edited with my custom modifications for fonts and date formats.

@ICDeadPpl Thanks for your manual, but it doesn´t work at me!
With your method, miniclock works well, with no config, the miniclock.cfg will not be copied in .addons/miniclock to my kobo Forma this directory is empty!
And when i delete .addons, it will be not new created!
When i copy miniclock.cfg manually it works fine
What is wrong at me

The only way to know what might be wrong is for you to post a copy of your "kobopatch.yam file.

How did you get on a firmware not even version 2.x?

Open the command prompt (cmd.exe) and to the directory where you have "kobopatch-custom" and "kobopatch_4.21.15015" and runt this command: tree /F

It should give an output like this:

My bad, I missed the extension on the "miniclock.cfg" file.
This is should work:
Code:
files:
  # MiniClock files
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/usr/local/MiniClock/devinputeventdump: usr/local/MiniClock/devinputeventdump
  ../kobopatch-custom/root/usr/local/MiniClock/fbink: usr/local/MiniClock/fbink

That i have done in my second kobopatch.yaml in Post #26, and this version dosent work either! No file in .addons/miniclock!
In my created koboroot.tgz exist an directory with the cfg File, addons/miniclock/miniclock.cfg . There is no dot before addons, is this the reason, for the non function?
On my Forma is no Directory with this cfg-File created!
