Clean reinstall on kobo aura

Post by geoslake » Wed Nov 26, 2014 1:30 pm

hi, and thanks for the program

...not playing chess but will buy it to support your work on coolreader and other apps !

Ive been using your coolreader since day one on my kobo, worked perfectly, but i just wanted to give koreader a try, following those instructions :
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showth ... p?t=240302

worked fine, but as i didnt like koreader, i removed it

Now, i re-ran pbchess koboroot.tgz, its all fine except i cannot get access to normal kobo software anymore (when exiting your menu it reboots the os and gets me straight to your menu again), which makes usb connection impossible to me

Can I do something to do a clean reinstall ?

thanks

I did a factory reset, then reinstalled pbchess properly, works fine now.

Bought a license btw :)

cheers

Dear geoslake, thanks for response.

Sometimes it happens (due to wrong installation or other reasons) that launcher enters to infinite loop reset -> launcher -> reset -> launcher ... without possibility to use original kobo software. The only 2 options are exist:

1. remove launcher.pgn, let kobo shell load and add it again. but you need to connect via usb network (you should be an advanced user)
2. factory reset

So, plan to add this possibility to kobo launcher menu in the next version.

Thanks!

Thanks for replying

Yes I guess that would be a nice addition :)

About Coolreader, I still have to find how to remove books (from coolreader i mean, of course i can plug the thing to a pc to do so :)), or at least mark them as read...
Also, I havent found any compatible fr-fr dictionnary (just a simple french one, not translation)
