Another thing I have noticed is that when/if I power off and on with the 1.2 update (not sleep and wake from sleep, but actually turning off and on) AND I have wifi enabled, I get a notification prompting to share my books with my Nook friends. And I have Nook lending turned off and have unchecked all the books that are possible to lend. This happens EVERY time I do a hard power on and off and wifi is enabled.

Uh oh. Is anyone having a problem with Calibre after the update? My Nook no longer shows up in Calibre when I connect it.

The update is not yet compatible with Calibre, but they (Calibre) will fix that, I trust them completly.

I've not had any problems. I had the same device setup before, and after the firmware update calibre treated it exactly the same.,,

No problems with calibre, using Ubuntu 12.04.

Running Calibre 9.4 and having no problems at all with Nook 1.2. (Win/)

Edit: Tried my old netbook with Calibre 8.4 or something like that and it didn't recognize it. Updated to latest version Calibre (9.9) and it worked fine! (WinXP)

I updated Calibre a few days ago and the Nook shows up now.

Update 1.2.1 for Nook Simple Touch

A month ago, my Nook automatically installed the 1.2 update. Yesterday, when I turned on WiFi, I saw a black screen with a white bubble saying something like Wait Updating, for an hour or so. Today, with WiFi on, my Nook returned to the Nook Forever screen and, five minutes later, a check of Settings | Device Info | About Your Nook revealed that Software version 1.2.1 had been installed.

On checking, I have noticed nothing different under the 1.2.1 update. What have others noticed?

Your thread has been merged with the other thread on this exact same subject.

Is this the same subject? A 1.2.1 update would be news to me, and not the same as the earlier 1.2.

Edit: their website only shows 1.2.0 available for download. Is this 1.2.1 version real?

The web site is updated to show 1.2.1 now. It looks like it just came out today 20 December 2012.

But (at this moment) click on the download link for 1.2.1 and one get the file nook_1_2_update.zip!!!

Perhaps someone did a quick cut-n-paste job to get a headstart on the weekend and some last-minute Christmas shopping

Install the file and it reports 1.2.1 though. I had updated to 1.2.0 earlier.

I think the page 1 bug on power cycle might be gone.

Glad you tried it (I tried to look in the zip file and figure out if it really was a new version but was unable to; I no longer had the earlier 1.2 zip file). Guess I'll do it...

I think the 1.2.1 update made the text appear less uniform again, just like prior to the 1.2.0 update. Some text look like bold characters when they really shouldn't. This was eliminated to a degree with the 1.2.0 update but now it's back. Grrrrr..
