Sorry, but this is complete gibberish to me.

"If you are trying to use the 3.19.5761 patch zip, you'll need to remove the nickel line from kobopatch.yaml"
But the first uncommented lines in the yaml file say

version: 3.19.5761
in: src/kobo-update-3.19.5761.zip

so yes, I am trying to create that patch and the yaml file seems to be meant for that very version. So why do I need to edit it further? Why does it contain lines that don't fit?

"you'll need to remove the nickel line from kobopatch.yaml" But there are more than one line with "nickel" in the yaml. In the following section alone we have "nickel" four times:

patches:
src/nickel.patch: usr/local/Kobo/nickel
src/libadobe.so.patch: usr/local/Kobo/libadobe.so
src/libnickel.so.1.0.0.patch: usr/local/Kobo/libnickel.so.1.0.0
src/librmsdk.so.1.0.0.patch: usr/local/Kobo/librmsdk.so.1.0.0

And down below there's more. Anyway, I removed the line that begins src/nickel.patch and it seemed to finally generate a KoboRoot.tgz. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks for doing your best to patch Kobo, but the procedure remains totally incomprehensible and convoluted.

Yep. That's right. The reason why you had to do that was due to a small bug in the converter (it usually works well out of the box). Also, the pre-generated patch zips are not the final product. They are just a way to use the existing patches before I get around to converting them to the new format, which is easier to use.

Great work!! I really want to thank you for your efforts on this. I believe this will eventually help patching done in seconds and can even be done by those who are not so technically inclined (especially with the yaml file).

I don't know how/when you will get around to the new patching solution and especially the zlib css configurations. But if thats done, it might be a game changer. Thank you once again, and to all other great members; such a great community we have here.

@geek1011,

I'm a bit late to the fw 4-8-11073 party, been a bit busy. Sorry if this is a dumb question but have I missed something? ...

I downloaded kobopatch_4-8-11073.zip from your GitHub. I see only one .yaml file in there.

I converted all my .patch files to .yaml when beta-testing kobopatch for the previous firmware. Can I use these (edited for 4-8-11073, obviously) or should I be using .patch files only for the time being?

@vjjustin, the new format is done, I just have not got around to converting the patches from the old format. Even so, I have made many improvements around handling the old format which are not in the original patching system.

@jackie_w and @vjjustin: The autogenerated patch zips are not the final result. They are just automatically generated from the old patch zips to make it easier to test kobopatch and to ease the transition (but they are stable enough and usable enough to use normally).

@jackie_w: You can use your .yaml files. Just put them in the src folder, and make the following changes to kobopatch.yaml:
- Change the patch format from patch32lsb to kobopatch
- Find .patch and replace it with .yaml

The patches haven't been released yet. If you want to manually port individual ones, you can update the version in kobopatch.yaml, and modify the patches as necessary.

The patches for 4.9.11311 and 4.9.11314 have been added. Also have a look at the updated Tips and Tricks section at the beginning of this thread.

I have released version v0.6.3. It now supports running on arm64 devices, and has better handling of multiple patch files for the same target.

The next version will probably include support for adding custom translations, and the next version after that might include zlib support.

I have added support for compiling and adding translation files in v0.6.4.

Terisa de morgan: Can you test it, as I don't use custom translations myself?

Thank you, I'll test it as soon as I can (damn Windows updates) and I'll be back to you.

No problem (and I use Linux )! All the instructions are in the README in the patch zip and in kobopatch.yaml.

And I think I almost figured out the zlib stuff. That will mean the end of endless updates to the css patches!
