Kobo Glo firmware 2.10.0 – first impressions
The new items I found after upgrading from 2.8.1:
- Pocket integration (might have been there before already) After login into my Pocket account I can see the saved articles there. Might come in handy, don’t know by now.
- Cross-reference in dictionaries it is now possible possible to jump between dictionaries by long pressing
- Automatic sync syncs can be set up to be done automatic once a day
There are probably many more changes, see here for example, but they didn’t interest me too much.
Of course I immediately checked whether the updates from the kobohack-j project still work, and by now I have no problems using the latest release kobohack-j-130913.zip. I will report if I find more problems. For more details how to install kobohack-j see this post and this post.
Unfortunately for now the Kobo patcher does not work. I will try to find the proper settings for 2.10 for at least some of the options and will report. For more details concerning the Kobo Patcher see this post.
ssh on the Kobo
One of the important things is begin able to ssh into my device. And even after the upgrade of the firmware my setup was still running. See here for a way to setup ssh on the Kobo.
More information coming sooner or later, depending on my progress!
