So strange, that desktop would give it to me but wifi sync would not... Does Wifi only *really* check if it has something to sync?
At the last and succesfull try to update, I do not know what wifisync would have given me. I synced on the Desktop, because I wanted to copy the updatefiles to my computer, for probable future use, given the fact that the downloadable files from the Kobo-site might be harmful for my device.

After syncing, en before updating I copied the complete .Kobo map of the device to a map on my computer. I have read the location where the files are stored shortly after, or while downloading to the computer somewhere on MR, but I don't remember in what thread, so I chose this method, to still have a copy.
Just find out now wich files from this copy I need, and what files do not belong to the updatefiles and can be disposed.

If ever in the future an update wich I then wil have gotten doesn't suit me right, I have a way to downgrade to a version wich I like very much, so far.

I had a WiFi Sync this morning, 2.1.5 downloaded and installed fast and easy ( I'm in France ).

My main problem with 2.0.0 was with PDF : a page seen on the screen was made of 2 halves of 2 different pages.
It's the first thing I've looked at with 2.1.5 : all seems to be OK.

Thanks, Kobo guys

At least, it updated I think it's time I gift it to my mother as I bought a Glo (I don't need two reading devices).

By the way, we don't share the same tastes for books : she loves romance as I'm not really fond of. I'll load for her as much free romance as I can, but I don't want them to sync on my Glo, so I thought I'll open a knew account with kobo dedicated to my mother's book (she isn't even connect to Internet, she thinks she's too old for that...), do you see some other means ?

That is probably the best method. It also means you can get free books from the Kobo site for her.

The alternative is to add a dummy record to the database on the Touch that provides a fake user. There are instructions somewhere here for that.

That's what I meant to do (and I can add books to her account and then she 'll take advantage of the wifi at my sister's home, where she can sync her Touch, since I live a bit apart from her and she goes there every day to take care of my nephews before and after school time).

Missing Dictionaries

On another note, I am absolutely bugged by the new wi-fi off symbol. It seems counter-intuitive to show an image to symbolise the ABSENCE of something and to have no symbol for when there IS something, i.e., wi-fi. Also, the new "Page x of y" pop-up in the library is irritating and kinda useless. I miss the old one at the bottom of the page.

But again, where are my dictionaries?!

Your dictionaries are not actually loaded. Click on the Plus next to each dictionary. It will change to a check. Then save. Then, if you are not connected to the internet somehow, connect to the internet and the dictionaries will load.

Warning: the above is from memory and may not be correct...

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for adding the "add book to shelf" functionality to the books list. So much quicker and more intuitive!

Now, if we could create a shelf that doesn't exist yet from this operation, that would be special. =D

Yay, was away for the weekend, and my Kobo just uploaded the 2.1.5 firmware.

Never did get the 2.1.4

I'm confused... I thought 2.1.4 was the latest update, and that's what my Kobo touch updated to.

Under device information on the Kobo itself it states;

2.1.5 (r43939, 10/12/12)

Kobo desktop still states 2.1.4 so is wrong.
