rischa, like you I didn't want to do the 1.4 upgrade either.
My original version Kobo was going great guns - no probs at all.
Then one night I turned it on to read in bed (as I do EVERY night) and ... without any prior warning at all ... it had the biggest hissy fit you could possibly imagine.
So, I did that 1.4 upgrade and now I have no issues at all.
I just make sure I turn it off every time I've finished reading in that session, so as to avoid any possible sleep/power off probs which I know some people have experienced with 1.4
Please do the upgrade - you won't be sorry
