Anybody have any updates on it?
As far as I can tell, it is not being rolled out outside of Japan. If you want to manually update, the links are in the Firmware links thread.

Why do people say it looks like crap?
Because they're not dyslexic? I understand that it does make reading easier for some, and so I think it's worthwhile including it, but yeah it does look like crap to me. But then so do monospace fonts for anything except programming. I know nothing about font design - but it sounds like perhaps neither does Kobo, and you'd think that if they're doing something nobody else is, that they'd ask for some help to ensure that the font actually works well on their displays.

Just some feedback for people who may be on the fence about 2.3.2.

My update (from 2.3.1) went seamlessly without a factory reset.

I've been using it for three days now, and it takes care of the small-font- at- chapter-change issue.

I haven't seen any negative side-effects. Overall a much better user experience than 2.3.1.

I had prepared a KoboRoot.tgz with the changes to the 2.3.1 firmware I had made (basically installing dropbear and starting a script for custom scripts). And that applied flawlessly to 2.3.2 as well. So I was back at where I had been prior to 2.3.2 with minimal effort.

Existing plugin installation was unaffected by the update.

I tried applying this again.
It seemed to go ok, however it didn't show any books on the front screen. As I sideload all my books I assume this is an issue with sideloaded books.
When I press the "reading" bar/text on the front screen they appear.

But when I power back up, they're not appearing again until I press the "reading" bar/text again.

Strange, anyone seen this before?

Oh man, i've made the mistake to update to 2.3.1 and the bug that makes it not to remember bookmarks is driving me mad, any news about a firmware to fix that?

If you mean the bug that you can work around by setting margins to zero, no news yet.

If that is the bug that's been around for a while, setting the margin slider fully to the left (0 margin) seems to alleviate the problem until a fix is released.

I put 2.3.2 on my glo yesterday, so far so good, no problems what so ever...it even seems a bit snapper going to the home, and loading books, but other than that not much difference that I've noticed.

when is 2.3.3 coming out??!

Are there any more of you who have installed 2.3.2? I'm still on the fence, but this fontsize-turns-minuscule-at-new-chapter thing is driving me nuts. Reading through this thread experiences are diverse, so I would like to hear more before I take the plunge.

I'm using 2.3.2. No problems for me... but then, I wasn't experiencing the font size thing in 2.3.1...

Hello Xor_

You can help me to modify a KoboRoot.tgz to install dropbear and start custom scripts?

Thank's!!

Sure. The attached KoboRoot.tgz sets the Kobo to run a custom script /mnt/onboard/run.sh at startup, and sets the root password to "banana". (You have to unzip it first, for some reason the board software complained when I tried to attach it directly.)

The attached dropbear.zip should be unpacked in /mnt/onboard

Then I put the line

/mnt/onboard/dropbear/dropbear -r /mnt/onboard/dropbear/kobokey

into my /mnt/onboard/run.sh script. This starts dropbear at startup. I guess you could also start it from the plugin instead.

Once you have it up and running, you could/should probably change the keyfile
/mnt/onboard/dropbear/kobokey

and change the root password.

Hope that helps.
