acer

gateway
emachines
sears
swindon
whsmith
bestbuyca
BordersSouthernTel
Aluratek2
ematic
ToshibaEurope
beta
rakutenbooks
kobo

Here are ones not listed in the file, but still work.

Code:

I'm not sure this list is complete - it seems to be missing several European affiliates (bol, fnac, mondadori etc)?

This list only has ones I could find in libnickel.so . I am going to add a section at the bottom which has the other ones.

I'm wondering if all affiliates have the same Bookstore on eReaders, or maybe some have their own bookstore? Could you please post your stock "Kobo eReader.conf" config file's [Services] and [OneStoreServices] sections? These contain the URLs for the bookstore.

I'm pretty sure all the affiliates use the same store. There might be some different resources used for images, and different books available, but the infrastructure is the same.

And it wouldn't be hard to test. Just change the affiliate. And maybe your address in your Kobo account to match. The two most likely to show a difference are FNAC and Rakuten.

I'll play with it, especially with the links in the config and the precoded links in libnickel and nickel.
Are there any information about the differences of the affiliates?
What features are available to one and the other?

So far, the main differences I have noticed are the FW versions. For rakuten, there is also pin lock on the newer firmwares and rakuten japan as the web browser homepage. For fnac (I think), there is also custom branding. I am not sure about the others.

It seems to vary with different releases. Currently rakuten seems to be the first choice but bestbuy.ca was for several prior releases.

Is 4.3.9084 being sent to anything other than rakuten? If not, it's probably fixing something specific to the Japanese market.
