Has anyone managed to get Ko Reader Working on this version of android? I've tried multiple versions, but they all crash on start.

Is it possible to unroot completely? Or start with an unrooted image?

[edit]I figured it out!

On a dual boot setup on Kobo Glo, is anyone else facing this issue that Android stops booting if Kobo OS is updated. Please respond and help.

I was definitely having a ton of trouble with the latest Kobo firmware. I went back to 3.x to avoid it.

The firmware upgrade writes a kernel and u-boot image into sectors near the start of the card. There is a good chance that this overwrites something the dual boot needs.

Thanks for your insight, this might be the reason.

After struggling a lot with this issue, I have now switched to standalone Android.
