There's a KSM setting for whether you want to load it every time. It defaults to loading Nickel every other time in case KSM doesn't work out on your device.

Thanks, but I have already tried it. It will start on Nickle each time.

With the default configuration, after powering on the device you have 20 seconds or so to select a menu entry. If you do not select anything, KSM will launch nickel. Did you per chance change the configuration to the effect that nickel is started earlier? Or maybe you do not look at your reader for the first 30 seconds or so when you power it on?

Thanks for the tip. But I just changed the KSM's behavior so it'll be up on each start. Technically I don't use Nickle at all, except for synchronizing Kreader's natural light with it! (so far it's the best it can do) It has solved my problem. But I hope the dear developers equip Koreader with the Natural Light option very soon...X

I installed Koreader on my original Aura running FW 3.19.5761. Everything seemed to be fine until I tried to open a DRM free Japanese kepub. And then it just seemed to freeze.

There was a notice saying that it was opening the book, but it never seemed to get around to doing so. And the screen was unresponsive.

Finally had to find a safety pin to do a soft reset. That worked and the device was fine.

Went back into Koreader tried opening an English DRM free kepub. No problem. Tried opening a Chinese epub. No problem. Loaded a Japanese epub, and it immediately froze again when it tried to open it. Necessitating another soft reset courtesy of the safety pin.

Both the Japanese kepub and the Japanese epub were relatively large files. About 12mb and 21 mb, respectively. The text of both was vertically aligned.

Not sure what the problem was. Any thoughts?

The thought is to read kepub using the software that comes with the Kobo Reader. kepub is not meant to be read with KOReader.

Yes, I initially thought that might be the problem. So,as I mentioned in my earlier post, I thereupon tried an English language kepub and Koreader had no problem opening it. So it didn't seem to be the kepub format that was messing things up.

Indeed, as I also mentioned in that post, I then attempted to open a Japanese EPUB. It seemed to freeze and the screen became unresponsive, necessitating a second soft reset.

As Koreader had no problem opening a Chinese epub, it couldn't have been a problem with Chinese characters. However, the Chinese text had a horizontal alignment whereas the Japanese text had a vertical alignment.

That led me to wonder whether the problem was with Japanese, the vertical alignment of the text or the size of the file...

It turns out that the issue was likely caused by the vertical alignment of the text. It also turns out that the ereader wasn't "frozen". It just took about 6 minutes to open the book, rendering it into a horizontal alignment.

It took about 6 minutes to open the book and it had realigned the text horizontally. Unfortunately, it had not done so as nicely as in the example posted. Instead, I had numerous lines with just a single character in them.

Needless, to say, I will save my reading in Japanese for the nickel software unless I can find some way to convert vertically aligned Japanese texts to a horizontal alignment using Calibre.

Hey everybody,

Recently I cannot open the Aura1's disk in the windows explorer when I enable USB in KSM. It'll be opened only thru the Nickle!

Any suggestions?

You might ask in the KSM8 thread at the "Kobo Developer's Corner".

How did you solve it in case someone lands here through a search?

Koreader's Top Menu is Gone in KA1

Sadly the solution was not an easy one! I had to factory reset the Nickle and install everything from scratch, including KSM v8 + its extra A1 patch, and Koreader (all the latest versions except the latter one). The worst part was to find a version of Koreader which does not mess up with KA1, as you may know many nightly builds would cause the strange disappearance of the Koreader's top menu! Unfortunately the latest builds have many many bugs and their installation would lead to many unexpected complications. So, now that I broached the subject again, it'd be nice to hear from the experts that where is that famous top menu in the recent versions?! I am talking about A1, the HD seems to be working perfect with many of them.

BTW, the one I installed and am using now, shows the correct time only when the WiFi is on. In the offline mode the shown time is wrong. But really it is not something to nag about comparing to the above-mentioned bug.

Best,
Abe
