It's all over the place. Others here still haven't got the update, but I got mine days ago too.

One sorting option I looked for, and didn't find, was to sort by %read. Basically I wanted to find the books I hadn't read yet.

Also, sometimes I open a book to see how big it is, because I haven't found a way to see if it is a short story or a complete book. This means the KT shows a small %read. So I want a sort by %read to bring unopened, and small %read books to the top of the list.
I'm not sure if I want to sort by % read, as 50% of a 500 page book is different from 50% of five pages. But a filter would be good: Only reading, Only unread.

And size would be good somewhere. The file size would be good enough for me. I know there are issues if there is a large cover image and little text, but it is better than nothing.

The filter would work - only if I can mark a book as unread - so I can reset those I only opened to have a look at briefly.

File size would help - or even better, and this is something I WISH the online stores would indicate, is number of pages. Surely, since this is an ebook reader, it can read how many pages are in a book, and display that alongside the book name. Failing that, yes, even file size would be a help.

UK KT user here.

Downloaded the 2.1.4 firmware and performed a manual upgrade. KT froze on "Updating" screen. Fails to start, fails to do anything, bricked.

Just a word of warning for fellow UK KT users. I'd hang fire until this OTAs.

I must've missed it, but did they say somewhere the rollout was *geographic*? Maybe it was account-based...

Quick update - have now disco lighted my way back to life (recovery partition reset), and am now just bringing myself back up to par. I'll wait for 2.1.4 to hit OTA.

What firmware were you on before you did the manual upgrade?
