如何在Kobo Aura ONE上安裝KOReader



我是一個完全初學Kobo或一般電子書閱讀器的人,但我有一臺Kobo Aura ONE閱讀器,主要用於閱讀大屏幕上的PDF文件。但是,內置閱讀器並不是很好,我在這方面聽說過關於 KOReader 的很好的東西替代。

我發現了多個關於如何實際安裝它的不同指南,但我從中不太明智。有沒有人真的成功安裝在Kobo Aura ONE上?我應該如何最好地繼續?這樣做的危險是什麽(我的設備是否會受到不可逆轉的損壞?)。

謝謝!

我很不耐煩,所以我繼續進行這個程序。 (雖然擔心刷新一個新設備,但我主要是閱讀PDF文件,因此確實希望KOReader能夠正常運行)。

So I will sum up here the procedure for first-time installation of KOReader on fresh new Kobo Aura ONE. Note that this is just the procedure that I followed, it might change in future or not work for you. Off course, I provide no guarantees about accuracy of this guide. Please read the information in the below links for most up to date information.

  1. Prepare your device. Make sure your device is working properly with no errors. It's recommended to update to the latest firmware version. Charge the battery full and switch off WiFi.

  2. A prerequisite for installing alternative readers is the installation of Kobo Start Menu (KSM). The detailed instructions and the most up-to-date archive can be found here. Download it and follow the instructions:

    Step 1

    1. connect the Kobo to the PC
    2. copy the folder kbmenupngs to the root of the device (e.g. K:\)
    3. eject safely and disconnect
    4. check that all images (exit_nickel.png, switchtokoreader.png, etc.) are listed in the library and their thumbnails are displayed there, and at least once as tiles on the home screen. Only then proceed to step two.

    Step 2

    1. connect the Kobo device to the PC
    2. copy KoboRoot.tgz to the folder .kobo of the device
    3. eject safely and disconnect
    4. wait until the update is finished (do not interrupt it, even if it takes some time)

    Note 1: You can always return to the default Kobo reader by starting the Nickel reader (press start nickel).

    Note 2: KSM is by default only launched every second time but if everything is working correctly for you, you can set it to be the default:

    KSM is by default configured to run only after every second reboot, and nickel automatically runs after every other second reboot. This is a kind of security measure in case KSM does not properly run after installation (something that cannot be excluded with future firmwares or changed hardware). After KSM has started the first time, please change this behaviour:

    Select tools > activate > set runmenu settings.msh > always

  3. The KSM should now be installed and working. But for Aura ONE (and some other newer devices) we need to apply also a patch. You can find the archive and instructions here. Follow the instructions:

    1. extract the KoboRoot.tgz from archive uploaded to this post
    2. copy the extracted KoboRoot.tgz into .kobo of your device (If you cannot connect to the pc from within KSM, connect from within nickel.)
    3. safely eject and disconnect your device
    4. select (in KSM home) handle update > install update (do not select install partial update)
    5. wait until the device has rebooted

    After the patch, you should notice that the KSM font is slightly larger (at least on the bigger Aura ONE).

  4. Now that KSM is up and running, you can install any compatible readers and utilities. This is relatively simple. Download the latest (or a version of your choice) nightly build from
    http://build.koreader.rocks/download/nightly/
    Extract the archive and copy the folder koreader to the .adds directory of your connected device. Safely eject the device and press start koreader to launch KOReader.


就這些。在收集了所有信息(這是最難的部分)之後,我沒有遇到任何問題,並且過程非常簡單。

在旁註:經過短暫測試,KOReader絕對優於閱讀PDF的默認閱讀器,這要歸功於其自適應縮放(裁剪)空白。這甚至使A4文件可讀。所以如果PDF是你閱讀的很大一部分,我肯定會推薦它。對於EPUB電子書,我可能會繼續使用原來的閱讀器(一種主觀選擇),但是由於KSM的緣故,在兩個閱讀器之間切換相對簡單。
