No and yes. Just turn the wireless off. The device won't turn it on again unless you do it. And applying the firmware update has never changed my settings.

No it seems after a week or less the device says things are corrupt and then itself goes back to the old firmware. seems its happen if I add a weird book or some DRM thing(suspect only)

is there a preh-acked version i can just drop on the device? have it boot update and then never have to change it again, just want it to be a reader for the kids, nothing fancy(RMA'ed it as well to see what was up, they said nothing sent it back)

Thank you david

Kobo don't publish detailed changelogs. But, for this release I was told of three changes:

- Light not turning on when level set to minimum'
- Dictionaries not working
- Category names in some languages in the shop

This seems to have been an update to fix two important problems introduced in 2.5.0.

While browsing Mark 4 version 2.5.1 firmware (http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...date-2.5.1.zip), I noticed that in /mnt/onboard/.kobo/slideshow there is no folder with Aura (dragon?) specific images inside, just the usual three for Mini (pixie), Touch (trilogy) and Glo (kraken).
Looks like this firmware may not the be right one for Aura...

EDIT:
On the other hand, in /bin/kobo_config.sh this firmware recognizes model E606C as dragon, which should be the codename for Aura...

After a factory reset on the Aura and using the desktop app to update, I grabbed the .tgz file from the .kobo directory before ejecting the Aura and it was identical (size, checksums) to the one in the mark 4 .zip file. As you noticed, there is no dragon folder in the slideshow folder. I was tempted to delete the dragon folder and see if it was recreated but am saving that project for a long weekend.

Regards,
David

Just a heads up, updating the aura manually with the Mark 4 Firmware works perfectly.
