Just a quick note, I noticed that the SD card in the teardown is a 4gb one. The Kobo Mini has only 2gb of storage. There's just under 2gb of unpartitioned space. You can use a partition manager to extend out the last partition to fill the card, and get close to 4gb of space.

There's a guide over on Mobile Read: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showth...

Yes I think

Thanks for the teardown! See https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showth... and https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kobo_Mi... for more disassembly advice and information about the components used.

I would be concerned about the reliability of the 4GB micro SD cards when extended to use the full unpartitioned space. While I could imagine a situation where 4GB cards were used due to unavailability of 2GB cards, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason to only format them to 2GB unless they were only guaranteed to reliably hold 2GB of data. In other words, I wonder if they were originally 4GB cards that failed some QA test and were only rated for use as 2GB capacity cards.
