Instructions for patching firmware 4.2.8283

This firmware version has only been oficially released for the Aura One and Aura Edition 2, it should work on other Mk 6 devices (Glo HD, Touch 2.0) but don't try to install it on other devices unless you know what you are doing, installing the wrong firmware could potentailly result in an unbootable ereader.

See the Aura One firmware 4.2.8283 discussion thread for information about what has changed in this firmware version.

See the Index to the Metazoa firmware patches thread for a description of what some of these patches do.


Before starting:

1. Make sure your Kobo ereader is already running firmware version 4.2.8283 (530afa6716). If not, then you need to upgrade before applying this patch.

2. Check that your battery is well charged.


Patching from Windows, Linux (i386/x86_64), or Mac (OS X 10.8-10.9, i386/x86_64):

1. Download and extract patch_kobo_4028283.zip (attached).

2. Download the Kobo firmware archive version 4.2.8283 for your device (See this thread) and copy it into the 4.2.8283_source/ subdirectory. (Don't unzip the firmware.)

3. Read and edit all the *.patch files in the 4.2.8283_source/ subdirectory in order to: choose which patches to enable (patch_enable=`yes`) or disable (patch_enable=`no`); and to change some of the replacement values to suit your device and preferences.

4. In Windows double-click 4.2.8283.bat; For Linux/Mac open a terminal, change to the patch_kobo_4028283/ subdirectory, and run ./4.2.8283.sh from the command line.

5. If there were no errors, copy the resulting KoboRoot.tgz from the 4.2.8283_target/ subdirectory to the .kobo directory on your ereader.

6. Safely eject and unplug the device, which will then update and restart.


To return your ereader to its original unpatched state:

1. Edit all the 4.2.8283_source/*.patch files to disable all patches (set patch_enable = `no` for every patch).

2. Repeat steps 4-6 of the procedure above.


Note that the following patches are enabled by default:

`Fix page breaks bug`
`Default ePub monospace font (Courier)`
`Custom left & right margins`
`Search in Library by default`
`Custom page refresh options (1,2,3,...,12)`
`Fix three KePub fullScreenReading bugs`

Notes and other patches

Notes:

The firmware link for this version (MK6 devices only) is: http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...e-4.2.8283.zip


Other patches:

`Cyrillic keyboard` patch for Aura One, thanks AxaRu.

`Greek keyboard` patch for Aura One, thanks isaak.

Here is a `Keyboard template` patch (libnickel.so.1.0.0.patch) for the Aura One. (You'll need to fill in the replacement values with the keys you want according to the pattern in the comments.)

Read the first post and look at the discussion thread for the 4.2.8283 firmware.

As David has advised you, do not try! otherwise you will need to do a total reset.

Comme David vous a conseill, ne pas essayer! sinon vous devrez effectuer une rinitialisation totale. (dj essay!)

You'll need to work harder than that. You can't expect to get a useful answer when you provide no useful details.

A good start would be to provide details of:
- why do you think this patch isn't working? What did you try? What did you see?
- content of your patch file for this particular patch. In particular did you make sure you set patch_enable = `yes`

replace_bytes = 984166, 6E F7 B8 E6, 00 46 00 46
</Patch>
