Still working after update on my Aura 6" : what device do you use ?

As for the dictionnary, what I miss is the little cross on top right of the pop-up to close it You can in fact touch the screen anywhere to close it, but I still, I miss that.

There is a hack to enable the two finger light adjustment for the Glo and Aura HD ereaders. The Aura HD gets a new kernel during the update so the hack disappears but no other ill effects. On the Glo, if you update while it is installed, you can/will lose your touch screen which will require a factory reset to get your Kobo back to being usable.

The Aura (capacitive screen) has that capability baked into the factory firmware so it's not an issue for Aura users.

Regards,
David

I never realised that the Glo had the 2 finger swipe light alteration capability until yesterday.

I upgraded my device using Desktop and some time later whilst reading I manually adjusted the light setting. When I closed the light setting box up popped a dialogue box alerting me to the 2 finger process.

I tried it - but couldn't get it to work.

I only have the Kobo software - no hacks or other programs like David For's.

How long has the Glo had this feature? And I presme it should work, and mine doesn't seem to - although it may be my poor technique.

It doesn't really have that feature. At least not right now. I think you are seeing a piece of coding that shouldn't really be there at the moment. One of the beta members also had a similar experience.

It seems that the fw 3.2.0 is not so responsive to touches any more (I'm using Glo). Often when I tap to turn page nothing happens first time. Must touch the screen again. And also when playing word scramble, then it just doesn't select letters I want to select.
Anyone else have such issues with touch screen?

Sorry, I neglected to state I have the Aura in my post about the two-finger light adjustment feature not working after 3.2.0. I now do not believe it is the fault of the update, but perhaps a faulty download. My aura updated over wifi when I had a very weak connection and I suspect it stopped, then started, during the update. Anyway, I have since done a factory reset, re-updated to 3.2.0, and all is well now. Fully functional as far as I can tell.

Yes to the dead taps and less responsive pick in word scramble. Seems to be a device specific thing (i.e. a few have it, most don't even with same base hardware).

It would be nice to have a list in the first post which compiles all bug fixes and newly introduced issues in one post...
For myself, I can't find any issues with this firmware (but then I didn't have any problems with the previous one either)

few other issues with this firmware, on Glo.
- when wifi is enabled, the wifi sign often disappears on top bar. When taping on top bar, then wifi sign is there. When taping on it to disable wifi, then the sign re-appears on the top bar.
- when wifi is turned off, then restart device then the wifi is ON.
- often device says unexpected error when trying to open web browser or sync. Must restart device to get things back working.

Try factory reset.
Turn it off by holding the power slider for couple of seconds.
After you're sure that it's turned off, hold the front light button, and while still holding it, slide the power button.
Note: you'll lose your data.

Have you already provided some data regarding your device to the thread that tries to find what's wrong with the WIFI connection?

I just updated my Glo a few days ago. There's a touchscreen problem that popped up.

Sometimes, when I touch the right edge, almost on the bezel, to turn a page, the page gets bookmarked instead. Then sometimes when I touch away from the edge, the device that naps I'm touching the middle of the screen. But all in all, I think my Glo is faster than it was before...
