This patch thread is for firmware 4.25.15875 (7615d0aa087df5e3176b67363b51e37f9fe8a991):

Instructions for patching on Windows, Linux, or macOS with kobopatch:
  1. Download the Kobo firmware release
    You can find the download links here here.
  2. Download and extract the patch zip
    Download and unzip kobopatch_4.25.15875.zip from here.
  3. Copy the firmware file to the src folder
    Copy the original firmware you just downloaded into the kobopatch src folder.
  4. Install the firmware if needed
    Install the firmware on your kobo BEFORE proceeding with the next steps. You can do this by extracting the contents of the firmware zip into the .kobo folder and ejecting.
  5. Choose your patches from the files in the src folder
    Enable patches in the files in the src folder (or use the overrides in kobopatch.yaml to keep your options separate).
  6. Run kobopatch
    Double-click kobopatch.bat on Windows, or run ./kobopatch.sh on Linux or macOS. On macOS, you can drag it into the terminal and press enter (you may need to go to System Preferences - Security and Privacy - General to confirm that you actually want to run it).
  7. Install the patches by copying KoboRoot.tgz into the .kobo folder of your device
    If the patching succeeded, a file named KoboRoot.tgz will be created in the out folder. Copy it to the .kobo folder of your device. Safely remove your device once you are finished. On Linux, you may have to press Ctrl+H to show the .kobo folder.

Please note that Kobo made some more changes to the CSS styles for dictionary definitions, so this patch needed to be updated again. The version in the kobopatch_4.25.15875.zip download pack should work OK.

However, if you keep your pre-customised version in a separate file from libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml then you'll need to update it to match.

Which patches regulate the distance between the reading footer and the bottom progress line? I have a footer with reduced height and the chapter title is a bit too close to the progress line. Letters like y and g get cut off. Is there a way to have the chapter title placed a little higher?

Look at the help notes for Part 2b of patch Custom new header/footer font in nickel.yaml. You can see the effect in screenshots 3 & 4 in this old post.

As you can see in this screen grab, the title is cut off and there is more room on the bottom line to allow the full title. Can a patch be created to allow the L/R margins to be decreased so we get more of the book's title in the footer? Thanks.
