just tried 2.2.1 on Glo, now sleep (short switch) doesn't work anymore

.. haven't seen any real advantage vs. 2.1.5 either ...


... now I wanted to go back to 2.1.5, copied the zip, and the Glo shows the loading screen forever!?

yes I used the right file kobo-update-2.1.5.zip, size 81680050. It unzipped without error.

1. Boot your computer into Linux (I hope you or a friend have it installed) and plug your Kobo Glo's micro SD card into your computer.
So is it true that I can take out the "internal SD card"? Any tricks on how to open the Glo?

EDIT: yes, I took it out, unzipped the 2.1.5 again, and now it works

I tried 2.2.1 again now.
I think sleep doesn't work at all, not even timed. I set both lamp off and sleep to 5 minutes, the lamp went off, but no sleep.

... and I had to open it again to go back to 2.1.5

You may have to do a factory reset before going back a release.

ok, probably, but that's too late now ...
... and I'm glad that I could keep my settings

From fish to hockey players and on to basketball (jordan and bryant). Wonder if the 2.3.0 release was in abdul-jabbar?

Just remember; the standard (and wisest) approach is to wait until the firmware upgrade is offered TO YOUR DEVICE by either Desktop or WiFi.

The firmware 2.3.1 doesn´t work properly on my kobo glo. When i´m reading an ebook - going back to the start page - and the back to my book - it shows me the last page which is remarked in the epub - but not exactly the position where i stopped reading....


so i went back to the firmware 2.2.1....
