Direct Links to Kobo Firmware

This thread is for direct links to Kobo firmware.

Release dates are taken from the first post of the release thread or from firmware zip file date adjusted for time zones. The release date could be incorrent by a day due to timezone issues.

Versions tagged with a letter are different releases with the same version number, these letters are not official Kobo designators.
