I tried installing/running this version on Kobo Aura One (firmware version 4.1.7729). Unfortunately starting the Launcher only results in the Kobo restarting.

I used the installation instructions for Kobo found here:

Did I miss anything?
How can I troubleshoot the issue?

pbChess and others work perfectly on Kobo Aura One.

Two possible causes:
[*]When I first tried to install pbChess on KA1, I transferred the files from an Android device over USB-OTG. Didn't work.
When I transferred the files from a PC (after factory reset on KA1), it worked flawlessly.
[*]Another thing may be: first time I tried version 2016.03. Didn't work (critical error! :shock: )
Then I tried 2016.11, but I may have skipped actually 'launching' the launcher.png before copying the other files. I assumed didn't need to launch the png as I already verified it would show during the previous installation attempt.
