Downgrading to FW 4.x from 5.x is not possible at the moment. FW 5 replaces the recovery partition, so it will no longer have the original recovery partition.

It might be possible to create a downgrade file in the future, but that would probably require an image from the same device running FW 4.x.

There's a reason I warned people not to try installing this firmware on a Kobo.

Doesn’t the Libra have a SDcard? He could downgrade by just imaging a new card and then swapping it.

The Libra 2 but not original Libra, I think. It seems pretty random which models use an SD card.
The Libra2 opens easily, but the "waterproofing" sort of glues the card in.

I think he has Libra colour and there is no sd card in that one. Man, that sucks. Is it possible to put Do Not Install on Kobo devices on the first post of this thread?

I've been following the thread and I read when sherman said not to install this on Kobo devices, but some won't read all the pages.

I’ve updated the initial post and will also update the download post. I should have thought of it myself, I feel like a fool 😕

Out of curiosity, how did you accidentally install a Tolino firmware update on a Libra Colour? I've done stuff like that when experimenting with my devices but I wouldn't refer to it as an accident.

I just looked, and there's a dedicated forum for Tolino.

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/fo...play.php?f=279

This thread should be moved there?

Since the firmware for Kobo and Tolino devices seems to be merging, I would prefer to leave this thread here.

In this context, I think "accident" means "I didn't do enough research before taking action."

A couple of days ago I purchased a Tolino Shine (5) BW with firmware 4.39.22427.
I installed NickelMenu, KOReader, turned on telnet and tried to save the image, which is what I successfully did on several previous kobo models
thanks to this description: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=576
This time (Tolino Shine (5) BW 4.39.22427) I received a file of only 18 MB in size with the following content:
https://ibb.co/9rtTBDP
I made two attempts, the result was the same.
Then I finally updated to 5.0.175773, although I was sure that there would be no return.)
I remembered 2012 and put the device on the shelf for now.
Here are some photos with the back cover removed:

Nice to see an image from a BW device showing the 8113L chip variant rather than the 8113T in the images on iFixIt (they show a Colour MB).

In the beginning, it was not written that the model of libra was not installed on the model. I decided to install, but half does not work there. He does not enter the poke, in the dropbox too, Google Drive disappeared, with the fonts of the problem. I would like to return to the image of the previous version. Only you need to find an image for the libra of Color.

Which is not available since the Libra Colour does NOT have a removable internal storage. It uses a soldered to the motherboard eMMC chip. I was looking at creating an image using a script file but realized that there is no way I could find to send the image to a non-functioning Libra Colour.
