The patching-process will end with an error.

It was definitely the problem in my case. Maybe it depends on which reader? I applied the patch to the Glo HD. And before I made that change, like Martina, I couldn't open any book on the reader, trying to do so just rebooted the reader every time. I even had the thought that maybe using added fonts would cause it to restart, but even with the Kobo system fonts, I still couldn't open any book on the reader before I made the change GeoffR posted.

This is optimised for ClaraHD and GloHD but must work pretty well on AuraHD and H2O therefore, if you own a different device, you must change the values as needed.
Note: libnickel part doesn't change.
Use at your own risk, I can't warranty that it will not causes issues.
Good luck.

I do not understand what I have to modify when I want to adapt the patch to Kobo Aura H2O 2 (Mark 6). Can someone give an example?

There is not an easy answer to this question.
My advice is to install this versión and see whether it fill your needs or not.
Perhaps you need a bigger font-size, or you prefer to disable the footer,... then look into the file to change the values.
Example:
You want a bigger font-size in submenus.
The default value for H2O (dragon) is 29px, I have set it to 36px, then you have a reference and decide a good value for you could be 43px. Hence
Spoiler:
Code:
# Texts in submenus
  - ReplaceZlib:
      Find:    "RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsTrilogy=true] {\n  font-size: 19px;\n}\n\
                RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsPhoenix=true] {\n  font-size: 23px;\n}\n\
                RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsDragon=true] {\n  font-size: 29px;\n}\n\
                RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsAlyssum=true] {\n  font-size: 32px;\n}\n\
                RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsNova=true] {\n  font-size: 32px;\n}\n\
                RegularLabel[qApp_deviceIsDaylight=true] {\n  font-size: 37px;\n}"
      Replace: "RegularLabel{font-size:43px;}"

If you have any question, please, don't hesitate... I'll do my best.

Good luck.

Sucessfully patched H2O ed2

Well, finally I´ve become brave and have installed the last fw 4.10.11655 patching it with kobopatch

Everything is running fine, so to geek1101, GeoffR, Jackiew and all people contributing to the patches.

No Overdrive option, but well, I live in Spain and there is no support for it here.

For reference, I have installed the following patches:
libnickel.so.1.0.0:
  • My 24 line spacing values
  • Custom left & right margins
  • ePub fixed top/bottom margins
  • Fix three KePub fullScreenReading bugs
  • Un-Force user text-align in div,p tags in KePubs
  • Allow searches on Extra dictionaries
  • Clock display duration
nickel:
  • Show all games
  • Fix reading stats/author name cut off when series is showing

I have also installed a corrected translation file, a new hyphenation dict (thank you to jcn363 ) and a modified FB2.xls (no, it is still not working well with fb2, but I have tried to change the default css and now it looks better. Anyway, if someone can help to improve the fb2 rendering ... )

You are welcome.
Here you have.
Note: libnickel part doesn't change.
Although H is optimised for ClaraHD and GloHD works pretty well on AuraHD and H2O.
If you own a different device, you must change the values as needed.
Warning: You never should use it if you read in turkish or japanese.
Use at your own risk, I can't guarantee that it does not cause any issue.
Note²: updated thanks to thaiminhan.
Note³: H updated thanks to Martina Schein.

I see. The text-box-size must be increased. I don't know where, but I'll try.
Good luck.

Hmmm... what patch is this? What does it do? I don't use it, but I don't think the text-box size is a patch related error. My Menu/Activity/My Words text-box was also too small (after activating My Words in the Kobo eReader.conf file and before applying patches, I think, but I could be wrong). Of course now the text-box is gone because I've added words

I'm not too sure either but I think it might be based on tshering's work 'for bad eyes' which enlarged the font-size in a lot of the general GUI widgets.
