Of course now the text-box is gone because I've added words

Thanks for this information that I don't knew, but I referred to the mentioned translation file.

I extracted the translation files from nickel, using some scripts from pipcat, and then corrected some errors in a .ts file (is txt so easily editable) and the recompile it to a .qm file used by the kobo (this last step is done now automatically by kobopatch, that also include it in koboroot.tgz in the adequate folder)

Top 50 Books, Top Picks in bottom left hand corner Kobo Aura One

Ive read about 200 pages of forums lol. In the 4.8.11073 firmware i had MY BOOKS there in the bottom left hand corner. Well my aura one died by salt water, btw don't use it at the ocean, and I had to get a new one. So it came in and I updated it to 4.9.11311. I ran the patches, and ran it through the calibre tools, and ended up with MY BOOKS in the bottom left, and NEW BOOKS in the bottom right. I like having a clean home-screen, so just the current book I'm reading in the top left, and MY BOOKS in the bottom left. Anywho, i went through and clicked on everyone of my books, only about 30 and once new books was gone, I proceeded to remove current books from the top. Once they were all gone, MY BOOKS in the bottom disappeared and became Top 50 Books!! So I opened up a book, and its showing in the top, but the Top 50 Books is still on the bottom. I have tried everything to get it back to just showing my books, to no avail. The calibre tool to remove tiles that says top picks does nothing. Is this tool no longer functioning? About to go crazy here. I've even updated firmware to 4.10.11655 and reran all patches. Still no go.

So the short of this long winded post is this. I want nothing in the bottom half of my Kobo Aura One, or only MY BOOKS. Besides trying to go back to firmware 4.8.1103, has anyone figured out how to remove the store tile from the home screen? Thanks in advance!

I have attached a screenshot of my homepage for clarification!

No, this doesn't work with the current home screen. It was specific to the function of the previous tiled home screen. But, the firmware is still maintaining the table in the database this fiddled with. There may be some use of it happening, but I don't know what.

As to the rest, put the unpatched firmware back on the device and start again. Odds are you have a combination of patched that don't quite work together. I don't do the patching, so can't help with that. But:

- There isn't a "New books" tile. The closest that I can think of is the "My books" which shows the covers of three of the most recently added books.

- Do you have any collections? From memory, "Top 50 books" is one of the things that can be displayed in the middle right place in the home screen. Once there are some collections being used, one of these will be displayed instead.

Thanks for responding. I think I meant to say Unread books shows up in the bottom right hand corner. So I opened each one to make them go away until the right hand side was clean. As for patches, the only ones i have enabled are
Show all games
Custom footer- for ebook reading
Custom menu bar- reduce by 50 %
Remove footer (row3) on new home screen
Fix three KePub fullScreenReading bugs

I got my first Aura last January, so iv'e been doing the patches for a while, but with the new home-screen and the removal of long press to remove tiles, I have had yet to find a way to remove the top 50, or store tile in the bottom left hand corner


So, to rephrase my question again lol to make it simple,

Is there a patch, or code change to remove the tile in the bottom left hand corner, whether it be top 50, my books, kobo store etc.
Thanks guys! And thanks again @Davidfor!

At this time, no one seems to have created that patch/code change.

Maybe a Remove row 2 patch?

Thanks David. I found a temporary workaround until then. As long as I leave some unread books in the right hand corner, MY BOOKS stays in the left. As soon as i have started progress on all of them, the top 50 comes back. If I select them all and mark them as unread, it still stays on top 50. If I remove them all, then reimport with calibre, voila, My BOOKS is back. So if anyone else likes clean homepages without kobo store crap, one of the reasons I left the kindle sphere, then try this until a patch or something is made.

This patch
Remove footer (row3) and increase cover size on new home screen:

seems promising in removing the kobo stuff. I would rather have dead space than ads. Do you think that there could be a similar "remove row 2" patch made, where there is nothing showing!

I have "Currently reading"in the row 1 - left. If "Currently Reading" is less than two books (or three, I don't know), in the row 1 - right I have the last open author with unread books or recommendations.

In row 2 - left I have "My Books" and in row 2 - right I have the last open collection with more than 4 unread books (I think 4, I'm not sure) or the last open author with unread books .

So yes, something is showing at row 2.

Edit: Right / Left depending on how your look at.

@jcn363, I have integrated your patch "nickel-PROGRESIVE_H.yaml".

After that I noticed that the text in the dictionary window is far down. What do I have to do to get the text up again?
Please have a look at the screenshot for clarification.

Otherwise, your patch works very well on my Kobo Aura H2O 2nd Edition.

Hey, I disabled the row 3, and reloaded. all good. Tried your patch, both of them could not get either to build? I am on 4.10.11655.
The patching system is the new yaml. Everytime, i get an error. They have both been placed in my nickel.yaml file at the bottom. Only one is activated. I have attached the log. Only my reading and my books first, then only reading. Thank you

P.S. It looks like you might be missing a find zlib line. Im not sure, know nothing really of coding, just basing that off of the above stuff.

Ok, I fiddled around with the code

Code:
Only Reading:
  - Enabled: yes
  - PatchGroup: Home screen tweaks
  - FindZlib: "#row1col2"
  - ReplaceZlib:
      Offset: 0
      Find:    "#row1col2 {\n  qproperty-visible: false;\n}"
      Replace: "#row1col2,#row2,#row3{qproperty-visible:false;}"
This works and only shows my current read but moves it to the middle of the screen, which is fine. It shows up to 4 books being read also like normal. This is close enough to what I was looking for to make me happy, till a firmware update comes out that allows us to rearrange tiles!

This,

Code:
Only Reading and My Books:
  - Enabled: yes
  - PatchGroup: Home screen tweaks
# To see Current Collection remove #row2col2 into Repalace clause
  - FindZlib: "#row1col2"
  - ReplaceZlib:
      Offset: 0
      Find:    "#row1col2 {\n  qproperty-visible: false;\n}"
      Replace: "#row1col2,#row2col2,#row3{qproperty-visible:false;}"
shows my current read back on top, and only the top 50 on the bottom, but spread out and taking up the whole bottom lol. I think that since this is a revolving slot, I.E, it shows Top 50, My Books, Kobo Store etc, I won't be able to make it just be my books, unless someone else alot smarter than me can make a patch. Again, thanks to both Davids and JCN363. It's nice to be in a community of people willing to help, and teach. You guys rock!

Lastly, for some reason it throws compiling errors when trying to switch from one patch to another, so put no on both, build, then yes on the one your switching to to go between options
