@evanskaufman You can put KOreader on your kobo, mine never runs Kobo's application now.
On first boot you have to edit the sqlite database to fake adding an account so that you can skip logging in with a Kobo account though.
@strypey 👀 That looks promising, thanks!
In the mean time, I went with a Boox Poke 2. Doesn't support note taking in the manner I wanted, but it's a pretty nice e-reader, albeit on the smaller side
