Yeah, if they've changed it, shouldn't be hard to find. However, I can't figure out the download link to the newest firmware so can't check.

The user "Waldy" posted a download link for the latest version (5.0.178115) on another forum:

(He says it is for the Shine 5 and Shine Color, not the Vision Color!)

It seems "devmodeon" and "devmodeoff" should still work on firmware 5.0.178115.

Lord mod thinks it's a good idea to keep a thread about a Tolino firmware in a Kobo forum. And Lord mod is always right.

Nope. What I was looking at was that Kobo seems to be moving towards a unified firmware for Kobo and Tolino ereaders.

As for always being right?
However, could you please tell my spouse and children that? They appreciate a good laugh.

no, i cannot confirm, shine 5 and entering devmodeon in the search will not make dev mode show up under settings. or what is the new location?

which is funny because i am still set to rmsdk as epub engine and cannot switch back. i am worried to factory reset this device because without switching engines, i cannot open books in an acceptable way.

i really think i should return this device and get a real kobo, i only got this tolino because the real units are not sold in germany and you need to pay a premium to get a good device.
serves me a lesson to be not that cheap lol
