Looks like there may be a fix out. Testing it right now. Special thanks to fedcod for his crash report, as that seems to have provided the missing link for the Developers. Hopefully those who had the issue will be given an oppurtunity to test drive the fix.
the person who provided me with the oppurtunity to test drive it is "mdclements" and I am hopping he will be able to provide those in this thread with a chance as well. So far so good no reboot! :P fingers crossed. Good luck guys lets hope this is the push we need! A very positive result here for this thread and also a very favourable result for great public relations for Kobo where direct concerns are dealt with!
