That's what I did in the end.

I also discovered the function of sweeping the finger on the left side of the panel up and down to change brightness instantly.

Hello,

I follow the instruction and tested it on my KA1 twice but it ended up covering half of my screen. Did I miss anything out? Please advise. Thanks!

If you used the nightmode package from the start of this thread it will not work properly with any firmware version later than 4.2.something (sorry, I forget the exact number). You need to get the version discussed at the end of the main nightmode thread.

I can confirm that this works on my Kobo Aura One with software release 4.12.12111

Thank you for putting this together. I consider my Kobo perfect with the nightmode.

Hi, I've tried this multiple times but I can't get it to work. Can you tell me where you got the files? I'm not using the install file from the initial post but the one in the middle of the forums called "nightmode+reboot+koreader KoboRoot.zip".

I copy nightmode.png and reboot.png to the root directory and check to see if it both are viewable by opening them. After that, I copy the KoboRoot directory to .kobo. I test the nightmode.png file but it does nothing. I power cycle the KA1 and try it again but it doesn't work. I'm on the latest update.

I used the .rar file listed in the first post.

Here are the steps that I did. (If you're using a Mac computer like me, when you click on the Kobo desktop icon after connecting it to the computer, you won't see the hidden folders at first. Press COMMAND, SHIFT and PERIOD on your keyboard to show them.)

I copied the single .PNG image file to the root folder. There isn't a folder called "root"; it's just the first main window that you will see when you open your Kobo icon from the desktop.

Disconnect/Eject the Kobo reader.

Do a reboot. (Hold down power button from main Kobo library window until it reboots.)

Once the Kobo reboots, open the .PNG file. The Kobo thinks that it is a "book" and will show it in your library. When you open it, it will just display like a book cover, but won't do anything else.

Connect the Kobo again and click on the Kobo icon from the desktop. Now, copy the second file contained in the .rar file from the first post. The second file is called "KoboRoot.tgz" You will copy this file to the root folder just like the .PNG file.

Disconnect/Eject again. Software reset again.

Once you're back in business, nothing will have appeared to change. The .PNG file will still be in your library. Now, though, when you click on the image file (like you were going to "read" it), the Kobo will shift to nightmode.

The image file serves as an "application launcher" to enable and disable nightmode.

Hopefully these steps will help you out. For reference, I don't have any other modifications running. I bought my Kobo used and the previous owner did a factory reset before selling it to me. When I logged in, the Kobo downloaded the most recent software automatically after I signed in with my account.

It took me a few tries initially since the original post wasn't very clear (at least it wasn't very clear to me.)

I've had nightmode on my other Kobo for years now and can't imagine how to get by without it. The combination of nightmode, dimmed light and the yellow/orange tinting makes it an ideal reader for me when I read at night in bed while my wife sleeps. I initially tried the orange-only (non-nightmode) dimmed down to 1% and while it was better than my other Kobo (which only has cold blue tint), I found the Aura One to still be too "bright" to me. It may have just been an illusion since the screen is so much larger, but it was still much more light that was comfortable to me in a dark room.
