If I do this, I assume I will have to proceed to updates manually. Will I miss other features ? Missing dictionnaries perhaps ?
With my Glo I've not had to install the desktop software at all, it just neede a wifi connection and it logged into kobo and updated itself. I have no intention of using the kobo desktop software at all.
