Ah! Thank you for information!
As far as I plan to get it somewhere in late fall, it should ship
with newer firmware, I suppose.

I just bought the touch and am having the same issues. When I bought the previous issue kobo, I simply had to go through the laborious process of entering my account parameters, but did it directly on the kobo.

I was thrilled to see that the kobo had a touch keyboard and thought "wow, this ought to make things so much faster!" only to have my heart sink that I couldn't set up my kobo account until I got home and my husband who accessed a windows box (we are Linuxites thrIough and through) to transfer my settings to the touch.

I am impatiently waiting to set all this up!

wow, all these instructions for such a simple request.

It's easy to manually update the firmware. And works like a charm. Just download the firmware.

http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...rade-1.9.9.zip

Unpack the zip file into the .kobo directory on the Kobo, eject and unplug, and the Kobo should update itself.

Edit: I wish someone would stickty that. These instructions have needed much repeating.
