I don't think you will ever get a downgrade from Kobo on a sync.

I hope this fw fixed the mess with Bookmarks and Annotations getting lost and Chapter pointers in the TOC not being updated! (I'm on Glo 2.3.1). I think I'll wait a while and let others do the discovery.

Now the other option is just to take a copy of the visible drive when the device is attached via USB, and be prepared to reload the original firmware from the images listed in a thread over in the Kobo Developpers forum here.

Mrs_Often, PeterT, thanks: yes, it is just the firmware I have in mind, and i am asking because there is no direct link to the Mini in the thread you mention, at least not for 2.3.1 for Mini that I am on - so I thought perhaps there were firmware files on the device that I could copy in case I wanted to re-instate the 2.3.1 version (which seems to be working fine so far).

Good point; now... did you ever get a f/w upgrade on your Mini or did it come pre-loaded with 2.3.1? It it came pre-loaded then a factory reset would revert to that version.

I am afraid i will never know! When I bought it I followed the instructions to set it up, which included a sync (I had already an account with Kobo, I tend to buy my books there instead than Amazon on a matter of principle), so i do not know whether it downloaded a new firmware version or whether it came with the device. I still have the box the reader came in, but there is no date that i can read anywhere on the box.

Well I checked by connecting my Glo to Kobo desktop. Nothing happened. Guess this release hasn't hit US yet (I'm in Oklahoma).

Can someone who has this get the build information? This is in the settings on the "Device Information" page. The "Software version" has the version, a build number and a date.

kaikara, can you confirm whether or not the new firmware properly updates the current chapter in the Table of Contents (i.e. it marks the current chapter as the currently open chapter)?
