I guess I kinda hijacked the thread. My bad.

Since people were giving up information, I also wanted to see if there was maybe some other factor that would cause the update to not load properly, like having wifi on or off...

I was trying to figure out if there was a meaning behind the letter. If everyone had wildly different letters, then it would probably have been a check digit.

Since we have well ordered letters (A-E), then the letter is either a regional designator, a firmware variant designator or a hardware variant designator.

Or it can just be an incrementing letter to allow for more serial numbers...

The difference between my serial number and another of the Australian serial numbers is approx 95,000, which may mean that there were at least 100,000 Touchs sold in the Australian region. Or, in other circumstances (last number is a check digit), there is only a 9,500 difference.

Not at all - it is great that you have added some extra expertise. No hijacking even considered.

Regarding the serial number, mapline posted on the Kobo Touch Firmware thread (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...postcount=1195) that the first five digits are the circuit-board revision, so that is really all we need from the first number at the moment.

Now, I have finally got KT, computer, cable and a bit of time coinciding, so my version file is:

N905B21300675,2.6.35.3,2.1.1,2.6.35.3,2.6.35.3,000 00000-0000-0000-0000-000000000310

Mm yes, but you have a different revision number to mine/Murg's (110 and I have 326 if I recall correctly).

Very nice! the long train journey is something I'll be getting used to in a few months time (my job will be about 400 miles from my wife's!), so my reading stats should improve, what with the journey and the stays in hotel rooms!

I'm not sure I was correct. Having put the database together I have the same format of serial number as WS64, so I don't know if the B is the same as the A,B,C,E seen in other numbers.

Please find v0.0.1 of the database attached.

Indeed, your B in N905B21300675 looks like my B in KG31B1500609E...

In case you are still interested, here are my answers:
a) ID: 4163\N905C Rev:110
b) Bought in New York, using in Hungary
c-d) updated at least once via desktop, wifi and manual-usb too, the updates were always successful in all method, however the well-known bugs appeared (slow page turn, wrong cover, font issues etc.)
e) 1.9.14

My Kobo is ad-supported, but as long as it's not syncronised via destop or wifi, it behaves as a "regular" device.

Thank you, clsdclsd! Yes, the information is still useful. Just for clarification, is the N905C the first part of the serial number?
