Comfort light auto adjust set to earlier than 9pm bedtime. In my phone & pc, the night mode setting is to specify the wakeup and bedtime (which i usually set at 7am & 7pm).
There is now a patch for this: https://github.com/geek1011/kobopatch-patches/commit/a3771cf787da393dda9d6d4ef986b72200315bb8.

Wow thanks geek1011 for sharing! It worked for me. I just added the said section to the libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml file and set it to "Yes".

Change rotate toggle between Auto & Portrait

The rotation button currently will show a dropdown menu for Auto, portrait & landscape.
Most of the time I just use portrait. If I need to switch to landscape I usually just select Auto.
So instead of a dropdown hope it can be converted to just a toggle.

I wish Kobo would have:
1. Something like a X-Ray feature
2. Return of the reading statistics shortcut in the in-book menu
3. Have a Home button in the in-book menu
4. Progress bar switchable to chapter progress
5. Switch locations of header and footer
6. Better dictionaries (as in with more definitions)
7. Allow to immediately start reading without having to wait for the reader to load when powered on.

They tried that and it was not used enough to justify it's existence. Google Beyond the Book for more information.

Sounds as if you are looking for sleep mode. Stop turning your ereader off and use sleep mode. Instant on and right where you left off using your ereader.

I noticed that with the latest firmware 4.18.13737, "reading statistics" is not updated while reading, but only when changing the chapter or reopening the book ... It does not update the time remaining in the chapter or in the book.
Hello,

I have the same problem, will there be any firmware update soon?

thank you.

We will probably see a new firmware released before the end of the year.

As an Aura H20 owner who uses the eReader where it cannot be charged (e.g. public transport), I want a very visible reminder to recharge my battery when it's sleeping, so that I notice it when I'm at home and remember to charge it before it's next needed.

Currently, it shows a tiny line of text above the front cover image when charging is required. This is almost pointless as it is not noticeable.

A more helpful solution would be, at its simplest, just drop the front cover entirely when battery is <=10% and put "CHARGE ME" across the screen in as big a font as will fit, or for a prettier approach cut out the middle of the cover image to insert this message, again as large as possible.

Thanks!

That's not actually a workable idea. If you have a sleep cover, when you open the cover, the notice would go away without you seeing it. What you can do is keep with you a backup battery and a microUSB cable to charge your H2O while you are out and about. I use a backup battery with a miroUSB cable and the cable has an adapter to allow me to charge my ipHone. So I onlt need one cable with me to charge my iPhone, H2O, or music player.

Lugging around more weight isn't really a solution, I guess what I'm suggesting will only benefit users who don't have the sleep cover.
