Spoke too soon - SD problem still here, attacking at random intervals; sometimes letting me to 100's of page turns - but just now hit before even the first turn.
I know that the SQLITE database is a bit suspect; it was there but then it had disappeared before I had opportunity to erase it.
Oh well, at least I have an intellectual riddle to solve.

Hi,

I'm living in France and the Kobo Touch just go out. Does the Kobo Touch by FNAC receive the same update of firmware or not?
(I really need the 1.9.14 version !)

Thanks.

I was in a FNAC store today and the firmware on the demo unit was 1.9.14.

Yes ! Many thanks.

Still for future update, will the fnac receive them or not?

(I don't really know if fnac customisation will stop or slow update or not, sometimes - for smartphone for example - it can slow down firmware update)

How do you join networks now?
Used to be settings > wireless and scan or add there

Now it appears that you can only click the sync and have it scan which takes a bit.

Hi Fonz,

We intend to make all future updates available to Fnac customers. There is no technical reason (that I can think of) that would slow down the updates.

I think the same process happens on the double page turns when reading.

This does not happen all the time, just often enough to drive you nuts. It's the inconsistency that is frustrating.
This sounds like a hardware issue. If the tap was registered, but the screen didn't refresh properly, the software would think it's on the new screen/page, but the e-ink image would be the old one.

I'm experiencing the same issues, occasional double-page turns and what appear to be freezes that resolve after another tap.

So... since updating to the new firmware I've had issues.

I am submitting this to the helpdesk at Kobo, but want to also note it here.

Since the update, the following has happened twice so far:
  • my Kobo has shown me the welcome screen (the beginner one where they ask you to set your language, etc.) and reset all my option preferences.
  • It has re-downloaded all my purchases from Nov 16.
  • It has reset all my bookmarks to the point that the Kobo Cloud remembers from around Nov 16th.
  • At least one book has completely disappeared from my Kobo (while I was reading it on my Blackberry app!). It does show up in my library under "purchased" when I sign onto the website, but refuses to download onto my Kobo via wifi.

Trying to update again via wifi does nothing except start the process in the list all over again.

Fun times. I guess I was due for a screw up since all my other firmware updates have worked out fine?

Nope. I love me my karma points--especially when I see that I have received that small increase new members can give.

I can confirm this issue, also when I plugin my USB cable the dialog in which you select to connect or charge stays under a second so you must be very fast

I tend to read for 30-45 minutes every night. Sometimes, I'll hit the double-page-turn problem three times in an evening. Sometimes, I won't hit it at all.

This all off the same side-loaded content stored in internal memory.

Go figure.

Yeah, it's a tad annoying, but on the level of a gnat buzzing around the edge of my vision.

Having been a hard core answerer of questions for the past 15 years in the newsgroups I still get a thrill when someone emails me thanking me for a posting or a web site page.

You can only see who gave it IF the person includes a comment on the donation; otherwise it's a mystery.
