Kobo

Supported models: Kobo Glo and later

Step 1 - connect Kobo to PC via USB

Step 2 - prohibit indexation of hidden folders

This set of programs is installed in the .adds folder. But recently Kobo began indexing hidden folders (with a dot at the beginning of the name). This means that the Kobo bookshelf will be clogged with images and icons from inside .adds/vlasovsoft. Turn off indexation of hidden folders:

  1. Locate the .kobo/Kobo/Kobo eReader.conf file
  2. Open it in a text editor
  3. Add 2 lines to the end of this file:
[FeatureSettings]
ExcludeSyncFolders=\\.(?!kobo|adobe).*?

(if this file has no such a section)

Step 3 - install KFMon

You need to install KFMon (if you haven't already installed it):

  1. Download the archive
  2. Unpack it
  3. Copy the contents of the archive (.adds, .kobo, icons, kfmon.png, etc.) to the root of the internal memory of your Kobo

Step 4 - install software

  1. Download the latest version here
  2. Copy the contents of the archive (.adds, vlasovsoft.png) to the root of the internal memory of your Kobo

Step 5 - disconnect Kobo from PC

  1. Safely disconnect your Kobo from PC

Now the launch icon (rocket) should appear in your book, by clicking on which you can launch the program you are interested in.
