Suggestion for Kobo folks - Firmware Updates

I have no idea at what interval folks generally do synching to the Kobo cloud. I would like to suggest though that, when a firmware upgrade is available, and the user has synced their device three times, that you give them the firmware upgrade.

This will help stop the whining in this forum. Including my whining. I'm still on 2.0.0.

Twice daily factory reset doesn't get my KT the new update I've been hoping for. See if 3 or 4 factory resets a day gets the update. This doesn't interfere with reading or retired life.

Doing a factory reset isn't needed. If the 2.1.4 is going to be rolled out to you, just connecting to the desktop app or doing a WiFi sync is all you need to do.

They could avoid load on their servers, and people waiting and complaining, by simply supporting manual updating, (which works well btw). Then we could share that upgrade package between ourselves. Everything would be much faster.

Until you ran into the situation where the firmware does not work on some hardware units. Ghod knows, we've had enough posts on that subject in the short time since 2.0.0 was released.

Yes, but surely an upgrade script contained in the download could check validity of the version before changing anything.

It's most likely 2.1.5, actually.

I got it as soon as I synced - no issues with updating. Just general Glo freezes (which are thankfully rare).

No, it's 2.1.4. I saw that. And I synched again after the 2.1.4 upgrade just to see if it would do anything more.

Oh wait, it is 2.1.5 when I go to the appropriate settings screen. Hmmph.

Actually, there hasn't been any problems with the firmware not working on some hardware units. The problem has been in various bits of firmware, especially the firmware update management firmware (of which they managed to screw up the Australian destined devices).

Only some of them - just to make it even harder to sort out.

It is all a vast conspiracy aimed at crushing the Australian republican movement once and for all.
