Kobo firmware 4.6.10075 mega update (KSM, nickel patch, ssh, fonts)

A new firmware for the Kobo ebook reader came out and I adjusted the mega update pack to use it. According to the comments in the firmware thread it is working faster than previous releases. The most incredible change though is the update from wpa_supplicant 0.7.1 (around 2010) to 2.7-devel (current). Wow.

    Hi Norbert,

    there are wrong titles for firmware: Kobo 4.6.9995 (but links are correct – for 4.6.10075).

    Thanks for your continuous great work!

    Please, Can not scan wifi on Kobo H20.

    • Not related to the changes I ship as they don’t touch wifi. Please install plain clean firmware and confirm first.

        Thank, i try 3 time to reset factory and install buy same problem :((
        This is step by step, i install.
        1. Reset factory.
        2. Kobo automatic update to 4.6.10076 ( connect to wifo and sigin with acc)
        3. Connect to PC and copy Koboroot.tgz to .Kobo folder
        4. Kobo restart and jump to KMS. In there wifi status is connected but i not sure.
        5. I choose start nickel and Kobo change to Nickel, i there Wifi is enable but can not scan any wifi name. And it is still….
        So what problem with my Kobo h20 . thank very much

        • Maybe something related to H2O and KMS. I faintly remember that there was some discussion on mobileread about wifi issues. Please research there, I don’t own a H2O.

    hey ! i just updated to 4.6.9995 as mega update u provided before but nothing changed just firmware from settings and nothing change. how to view koreader, nickel, pbchess and games etc

    Hi Norbert,
    thanks a lot for the megaupdate. I used it in the past few months and koreader and coolreader are much better than the stock reader.

    Unfortunately 🙂 a new firmware came out (4.7.10413), and I must have done something wrong because the Kobo updated itself after a reboot and I am now stuck with the stock firmware.

    Are you planning to update the megaupdate?

    What are the chances it’s gonna work if I install only the KoboRoot.tgz from this megaupdate without the kernel?


  8. pflow says:

    Happy new year everyone, i wish the best for all and really hope for a final last update in 2019 for our legacy kobo devices,as the last one had major flaws. if Norbert still possess one,

    Thanks and good luck.
