Connect to the PC, go through the upgrade, registration, etc. After it's all done, don't eject your Glo. Close the Kobo desktop application, locate the drive for your Glo's internal storage, open the .kobo directory and delete the KoboRoot.tgz, manifest.md5sum and the upgrade directory found in it. Then eject your Glo.
After this just avoid upgrading -- no WiFi, delete the files again next time you connect to your PC, etc. There was a hack editing a file that kept a Kobo from upgrading but that does not work anymore. Also a mention of setting the firmware version in the sqlite database to prevent upgrading. I'm not sure if that still works either. It might be worth searching this forum for that information.
