KA1+KSM9 - Cannt enter Nickel, No USB

Trying to start Nickel from KSM results in an infinite loop of Nickel's "looping squares", and I need to turn the KA1 off and reboot to get KSM again.

KOreader and Plato work fine.

Any help will be appreciated.

Ben

And an edit - now I can start USB in KSM.

This way it started with no problems.

But still, from KSM it won't start.

If you can successfully start nickel without fmon, it is possible that - for whatever reason (last read document, (re)generating missing (defect) cover, ...) - one of the pngs in kbmenupngs (exit_nickel, toggle_nightmode, etc.) is processed whenever you start nickel. If fmon is running in the background it might trigger the corresponding action (such as close nickel and go back to KSM or invert the screen) whenever this processing takes place. However, since restart_nickel(?) is no longer included in KSM I've no idea which icon could trigger a loop like the one you describe.

Thanks @Taos. Your idea solved my problem.

There were KSM png's in Nickel's Home screen (upper row and also lower left). I entered and exited a few books so now there is no png's in the Home screen - and everything works just fine.

Thank you !
