Has it been officially released for everyone now?
I am using 2.1.1 it allows for english or preety much all the languages supported by kobo. So far I give it a 10 out 10 for reliability.
But FWIW, I have had no issues from any of the firmware at any time that has been released in the past. The only issues I have ever encountered were directly caused by after market utilities. Those issues were resolved immediately upon discontinued use of the offending utilility at least as far as interaction to the device.
So if you wish to use 2.1.1 you should have no issue. That said back it all up espcially if your books are not stored on external sd card.
