kobo glo win kobo glo HD screen

hello, first of all, sorry by my english, i'm from Spain.

Well, My kobo glo screen is broken and I have to buy a ED060XG1 to replace it, however I wonder if I can replace this with a kobo glo HD screen (ED060KG1). Connections look quite similar, so I wanna know if the ED060KG1 is compatible with my Kobo Glo.

thanks!

Quick answer is no. The screen resolution is not the same.

If the connections and the rest fit (and have the same pinout) you could modify your software, compile your modified kernel and possibly get it to work. This is not guaranteed though and not really suited for just getting the glo to work again.
