What does not work

Kernel compilation. The lowest working kernel for postmarketOS is 3.x, while the kobo-aura uses a fork of 2.6.


  • Maybe possible to diff changes between official 2.6 kernel and kobo's fork, create patch, and apply to 3.x to create working kernel? Working on this
  • Newer kobo devices might run 3.0? Unsure.
