Firmware Images, Customizing the Tolino, & More
#1  sources 03-09-2020, 07:55 PM - Stock Kobo Clara 600 mb file

Someone did a tear apart and found only a slight difference in one of the parts between the Clara and tolino If anyone has the know how they might be able to get each others images working.

Tolino - Stock Tolino 600mb file

These below are my modded images with 2.5 system partitions

Tolino_Android_32gb -7gb file

This one should go on anything 8gb plus
Tolino_Android_Acro 2gb file

light bleed fix

Peripathetic mods - Patchs and EPubProd.apk
Ryogo's TWRP for Tolino Shine 3

Launcher and apps from

kindle apk just install
ko reader
magisk_manager - root management

Also on mine today I installed moon reader which is very nice.

I like this reader I thinks it's the best one out so far.
the light bleed is b ad but not horrible. like a tn or vg monitor panel
wish it didn't have the bezel I carry this puppy in my pocket so that 1in would be a big deal. might even take the metal sides off the inside someday and 3d print a case, Please someone beat me to this and share or sell it

any ways those are my mods for this device. Don't have one try ordering one from they say they ship over seas for a fee.
I was lucky enough to find one used local in North America.

The difference is the SoC (CPU):

Quote Peripathetic
[...] the system board part # on the Tolino (37NB-E60K00+4A4) is identical to what's on the Kobo, according to screenshots on the Internet. On the other hand, the SoC part # on the Tolino is MCIMX6L8DVN10AB (NXP Freescale i.MX 6SoloLite). I could not find any Clara screenshots where the SoC part # would be legible but it's reported to be MCIMX6V7DVN10AB (SLL) elsewhere.
Part # reference:

Other than that, they seem pretty much the same. Both are built on the Netronix NTX-6SL platform.

Awesome guys! Ill update my post accordingly tomorrow. I have kobo people routed here for the image so they can read what we are trying to get done. Ill be gone for a day so anyone that request the images just hang on tight i'll get you. Also I was just following the norm here and ill just unlock these images to download anytime if that is aloud here? everyone does pm here. Also it would be great to hear if it works first so i'm not bricking peoples devices. Waldy have you tired them yet? Also is there any assembly coder people here on MR that we can try to enlighten on this subject? Thanks

Imagine having dual boot on our Tolinos

Moon-reader was taking to much battery. I switched to an older version that works great

I switched to No Launcher Only.apk because the other was taking battery.

In dev options there are two boxes at the bottom to have only one app work at a time.

This works really great. I'm 16 days in with 25% battery life still left.


and click Price comparison

Too check out best price and if anyone orders in the usa let me know how it goes.

I am writing with Google Translate.

Shine1 there are two different motherboard. Basically, everyone has number 1 on their hands. The images that I posted are suitable for number 1.
I also have for number 2, if necessary.
