Just updated to 2.1.4. Seems OK, however, the home screen now shows both finished and ubread books. How do I go back to only showing unread/in progress books?

You can extract the delima font from the firmware update files of earlier versions. You can find the links at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...69&postcount=1. The location of the fonts is for instance "kobo3-update-1.9.17\KoboRoot\KoboRoot\usr\local\Trolltech\QtEmb edded-4.6.2-arm\lib\fonts". You have to decompress kobo3-update-1.9.17.exe and after that KoboRoot.tgz and KoboRoot.tar to get there.

I don't see it that way. 2.1.4 is super fast and has some very nice features - such as the handling of the shelves.

Just remember, you'll see more reports of problems than praise on forums like this - understandably - because people come here for help with problems.

Another probably dumb question - but as I'm still rather enjoying 1.9.17, I wonder,is it possible to synch Kobo ebook purchases that occured after that update, via the desktop, without doing the ereader update?

I'm using 2.1.4, and i have a major complaint about it.

It's too damn fast.

It used to be that I could touch the screen for the next page when I got to the bottom line of text, and the screen would update just as I finished the line.

Now, I have to finish the line before touching the screen!

Also, and I'm not sure its not just my imagination, but I think that page turning is leaving less static on the page, so you don't have to do the 'redraw' of the screen as often.

I still haven't received the update. When is the roll-out expected to be complete and why is it taking so long?

This is purely speculation on my part: My guess is that it's a combination of new hardware release causing an increased workload for customer service due to a large number of new users and partly long holiday weekend this weekend in Canada. They probably have a skeleton tech staff on to cover anything that basic frontline help can't handle. They might also be trying to avoid servers being overloaded new users needing to upgrade device on registration along with 2.1.4 upgraders. They can't control the number/timing of users with new devices but they can manage the upgrade rollout.
Or maybe it's for completely different reasons since I'm just speculating .

Ha! I have the same "problem". I've had to go back to the previous page more than a few times because I keep forgetting to wait until I reach the end of the line before tapping the screen.

I'm resident in the UK and still haven't had the roll-out.

Anybody else in the UK not had it yet?

It's been suggested this may be because I use an SD card to store my books on. I did not try this: read/sleep/wake/read procedure without the SD card in. I did try a complete reset and upgrade via the desktop app but still had the same problem. I went back to 1.9.17 as other than dead taps every so often I've had no other problems with it, it's been my favorite firmware.
I noticed that restart on coming out of sleep. On the 3 KTs I've tested, all of them exhibited the same behaviour. Wake it up, displays the last page read, tap to move to the next page and nothing happens, try a couple of more taps and the KT restarts.

On my KT, I tried the signout, factory reset and auto upgrade, factory reset and manual upgrade, removing all books from the SD card and re-adding them after a factory reset and nothing seemed to help with the restart issue.

Two of the KTs were happy campers when I removed the SD card and copied the books to the internal memory (about 500MB on one and 250MB on the other). The third one is mine and it works without the SD card but I have more books on the SD card than will fit into the KT's internal memory so I had to decide whether to remove some books from the active library or to drop back to 2.1.1 until the next upgrade comes out.

Being a curious soul and having some time on my hands, I tried 4 different micro-SD cards in my KT and the same restart after sleep with all of them so I don't think it is an issue with my micro-SD card collection.

At this time, IMO, if you use the KT without an SD card, 2.1.4 is definitely a must have. If you use an SD card, 2.1.4 is not going to make your list of top upgrades for 2012.

That's exactly what I was going to post this morning! Also in the UK, also not had it.

I'm away from home later next week; can anyone tell me whether this upgrade (from 2.0.0) will mean needing to reload sideloaded epubs? If so I'll leave wifi firmly switched off while I'm away from Calibre on my home PC!

Has 2.1.4 added anything in shelves so you can set your own order of the books. I have a series, and would like to have the order shown in series order. I'm interested in this on the device itself (not using Calibre).

Thanks.

There is a thread about this here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...38#post2252238

I have had success getting this to go away by reformatting the sd card and then adding the books back in. A more complete explanation is in the thread.
