Changes I noticed after my factory reset...

I did a factory reset on the weekend to resolve a software error with my Kobo library that came up on Friday, and I've noticed a few things after I did the reset:

1. After I turn my Vox on or wake it from sleep, the screen that appears now has my last read Kobo book cover on it (whereas before, it just had a blank screen with a quote).

2. My WiFi appears to have more difficulty connecting (takes longer - and twice now, I've needed to do a reboot to resolve a hanging WiFi connection attempt).

3. Battery life appears to be better - but I think that may have something to do with my turning off WiFi prior to shutting it down.

It will be interesting if I notice anything else this week...but, I have a feeling that the firmware update will be released shortly, so perhaps we'll all be noticing some changes soon...

.
check in settings - location and security settings

there is a setting under "Lock Screen Background"
of "Use Current Read Book Cover"

see if it is now checked?

Pokee,

I am assuming you are still using Advanced WIFI Lock. It may have something to do with those settings because I have noticed the same thing and my RESET was a week or so ago but I have only had the Advanced WIFI Lock a few days.

I may try uninstalling it since I am turning WIFI off before I put the Vox to sleep. If I do, I will report the results here!

I think based on a previous thread, that the Kobo glitch is seeing the quotes when there is a current read book. So, as far as I remember, seeing this cover actually means your Vox is working better!
