Hi,

I've setup FW 3.8.0 on my Glo... the device seems to be a litlle bit faster ?

Two bugs found :

1. shelves (create with calibre a long time ago) have disappeared !!! the only way I've found is to re send all my books with calibre 2.1.0 to my kobo... now shelves are ok.

2. the device doesn't display correct book cover in sleep and power off mode : the wallpaper is not the good one, it should be the cover of the book I'm reading and now all my books have the same cover, it's one of another book I've read (it's the cover of "shining" from S. King and so the wallpaper that appears is the face of Jack Torrance, terrible !!!!!!!).
I've verified a lot of books with calibre and all thoose books are ok with calibre. My file affiliate.ini has not changed and is like that :

[General]
affiliate=kobo


Any idea about this last bug ? perhaps the result of the bug n°1 ?

NB : I use night mode build 13 and it runs too with this FW.

I just manually upgraded the firmware on my (first ever) e-reader, a simple Kobo Touch, from v3.3.0 to v3.8.0. The upgrade process went all okay. The Touch seems to repond now just a little quicker (perhaps the Sqlite database has been cleaned up?). All seems to work like before :-)

I've delete all my library and re injected all my books to my glo and now all is ok with this FW 3.8.0.

I don't know what happened, perhaps I've setup the 3.8.0 when my device was in sleep mode and not power off ?

Check the date on the device. What was happening could be explained by the date being set back a few days. Or, like others have found, set back to 1970.

The one from the post directly before your linked one, i.e. post #967. The Glo/AuraHD use the same firmware.

I've updated the First Post with 3.7.0 and 3.8.0.

I'm calling the 3.7.0 release: The Catch Me If You Can release.

The 3.8.0 release is The Charge of the Light Brigade release.

There is a new release of the PC Desktop for 3.8.0.

I've moved the release from Jan 2014 to mid-May to the Second Post.

Mark of upgrade

Hi

Flashing is tricky so i want to be absolutely shure, preventing to transform my dear reader in a brick (tile). What's confusing me is the difference of adressing a peticular reader. i read aboute Aura, Aura HD, Aura H2o, New Aura, mark 4, mark 5 software.
I've an Aura N514. What "Mark" of software is it ?

Thanks

I've made some changes to the Installation Instructions for Direct Zip Files (third post).

I've split out item 5: Make sure that the Kobo Desktop is NOT running.

and added item 8: Safely remove the device from Windows (or your operating system of choice).

It's not. It's the same thing that the official methods do (wifi, Desktop app): copy to the .kobo dir the new firmware, kernel, uboot and waveforms.

Just take a look to the wifi update script.

Upgraded my Glo to 3.8.0 (coming from 3.5.0), sideload. All went good, but while reading a sideloaded epub (light on, 28%) the screen started flashing (mean the light turned off, on, off) and the Glo had a spontaneus reboot. Happened once, hope it won't do again!!
No other issues, so far.
