Instructions for patching firmware 4.4.9344 and 4.4.9349

Mark 6 devices BEWARE: There are two versions of the Mark 6 firmware: 4.4.9344 and 4.4.9349. DON'T sideload the 4.4.9344 version to the Aura One, it results in a black screen and requires some effort to fix (see this post.)

* 4.4.9344 (6f700792a0, 16 May 2017):
84,642,940 bytes, MD5SUM 545969e53732d1abb904d7acf4175922 kobo-update-4.4.9344.zip

* 4.4.9349 (6f700792a0, 17 May 2017):
84,648,827 bytes, MD5SUM: b0208d75e861176f504df0a1ce2ddbf2 AuraONE_kobo-update-4.4.9349.zip

To complicate matters, the link to Mark 6 version 4.4.9344 might actually result in version 4.4.9349 being downloaded, but with the filename of the 4.4.9344 version. So don't rely on the filename, check the actual file size of the download with the information above to see which version was actually downloaded.

These patches work exactly the same for both versions 4.4.9344 and 4.4.9349, just make sure to use the same firmware version for patching that your device is already running.


See the New firmware release - 4.4.9344 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 4.4.9344 (6f700792a0) or 4.4.9349 (6f700792a0). 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_4049344.zip (attached).

2. Download the Kobo firmware archive version 4.4.9344 (or 4.4.9349) for your device (See this thread) and copy it into the 4.4.9344_source/ subdirectory. (Don't unzip the firmware.)

2a. (Only necessary for Linux/Mac): If the downloaded filename was AuraONE_kobo-update-4.4.9349.zip, rename it to kobo-update-4.4.9344.zip.

3. Read and edit all the *.patch files in the 4.4.9344_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 run 4.4.9344.bat (double-click); For Linux/Mac run 4.4.9344.sh (double-click, or right-click + run, or execute ./4.4.9344.sh from the command line.)

5. If there were no errors, a new 4.4.9344_target/ subdirectory will be created. Copy the KoboRoot.tgz from this 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 4.4.9344_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:

In librmsdk.so.1.0.0.patch:
`Fix page breaks bug`
`Default ePub monospace font (Courier)`

In libnickel.so.1.0.0.patch:
`Custom left & right margins`
`Custom page refresh options`
`Fix three KePub fullScreenReading bugs`

Notes and other patches

Notes:

Note for Linux/Mac users:

There is a new version of the 4.4.9344.sh script included with this patch, it should work the same as before, except that you should be able to run the script without the need to change into the directory where the script is located, i.e. you should be able to just double-click on the script from your file manager, or whatever other method you use to run programs.

On some Linux systems the ability to run scripts by double-clicking has been disabled, and so you might need to change your file manager preferences. E.g. for the Debian/Gnome default file manager: Preferences > Behavior > Run executable text files when they are opened.

The new script should create a log (logfile.txt) containing the output you would normally see when running it from the command line. It would be helpful to include a copy of this when reporting any problems.

New patches:

A number of new patches created by oren64 and jackie_w have been included in the attachment to post #1, see the notes from firmware 4.4.9298 for a list and more information on what they do.


Other patches

`Custom font to Collection and Authors names`

`New home screen footer rename`

`Increase headlines font`


If you know of any other patches for firmware 4.4.9344, post them in this thread and I'll add a link above.

Using the sideload links. Every download is getting the faulty one. Come on Kobo, if its doing that to KA's pull it from the server! If they're using an Akami type load balancer to manage downloads I'm not seeing the fixed one as per page 1

We're all downloading from the same link, someone(s) have the good version, others don't.

I've tried snagging it a few times just to see if I'd get the good one (not via syncing my KA1 just by clicking the link) so far I've only downloaded the bad one.

Not sure if geolocation is a factor here.

I used the link last night and it gave me the correct one. Be aware that Geoff gave the Mark 6 size. If you are downloading Mark 5 or another Mark, the sizes will be different.

Temporary mirror for the functionning version

It looks like you can get the correct version by using a VPN. I tried tunnelling through the UK and it worked with the official link.

Otherwise I've re-uploaded it temporarily here (you can check the size and checksum just to be sure) : http://puu.sh/vTWzo/374debfd41.zip

Funny thing is, it identifies as 4.4.934*9*... Patches apply cleanly, though, and seem to work.

I would not apply the patches to 4.4.9349 without them being verified.
