Instructions for patching firmware 4.2.8432

See the Aura One firmware 4.2.8432 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 4.2.8432 (fbb9e8f61b). 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_4028432.zip (attached).

2. Download the Kobo firmware archive version 4.2.8432 for your device (See this thread) and copy it into the 4.2.8432_source/ subdirectory. (Don't unzip the firmware.)

3. Read and edit all the *.patch files in the 4.2.8432_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 4.2.8432.bat; For Linux/Mac open a terminal, change to the patch_kobo_4028432/ subdirectory, and run ./4.2.8432.sh from the command line.

5. If there were no errors, copy the resulting KoboRoot.tgz from the 4.2.8432_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 4.2.8432_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`
`Brightness fine control`
`Search in Library by default`
`Custom page refresh options (1,2,3,...,12)`
`Fix three KePub fullScreenReading bugs`
Attached Files
File Type: zip patch_kobo_4028432.zip (493.7 KB, 610 views)

Last edited by GeoffR; 02-10-2017 at 02:53 AM. Reason: Updated zip file to include `Brightness file control` patch

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

Brightness fine control (testing)

Could someone running firmware version 4.2.8432 test this patch? It goes in libnickel.so.1.0.0.patch:
Spoiler:
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `Brightness fine control`
patch_enable = `yes`
#
## Tapping the sun symbols changes the frontlight brightness by 1 instead of 5.
#
# ValueDisplaySlider::setStep(5) --> ValueDisplaySlider::setStep(1)
replace_int = 73ABD6, 5, 1

Thanks for testing it.

I've updated the .zip file in post #1 to include `Brightness fine control`, enabled by default, and I've posted versions for firmware 4.0.7523 - 4.2.8283 in their respective threads.

There is nothing new since version 4.0.7523 as far as the patches are concerned. This thead is discussing the firmware itself. (I am still running 3.19.5761 so I don't know any better than what is reported in the firmware discussion threads.)

Bug fixes is what I'd say. As to what they are, I have no idea.

The bug fix I noticed and really appreciated is the improvement when choosing an option at the bottom of a page for instance: the chosen menu pops up, not the one next to it. I know someone noticed it to start with and it didn't work for him afterwards.

In the Custom Page Refresh patch, it looks like we can only go as high as 12. Is there any way to go higher than 12 like in 4.2.8110's version of this patch of can the existing patch have the 12 changed with a higher value?

Apart from the hex-location the Custom Page Refresh patches for 4.2.8110 and 4.2.8432 look the same to me. If changing 12 to something higher worked before I don't see why it wouldn't work this time. Did it fail for you?
