Chapters appear to be OK now as well, so thank you for your help.

I'll wait until there is another stable firmware before I run Kobo desktop again.

Help !!
I am new to all this, I have just purchased a Kobo Glo. The first I had to return as it has dust under the screen, the 2nd I returned today as it turned on, asked for either wireless or computer setup, with the wireless, I set the date etc, confirmed my wireless network, then it downloaded an update. It then restarted and came back to the start again, asking for me to set it up, which I tried again, with the same result. By computer it went to downloading the upgrade and gets to the end before saying oops internet connection lost, which it isn't, and went back wanting me to set it up again. I returned this one after a few hours of frustration. The new one I picked up this after noon is doing the same thing.

I have looked through your forums and tried downloading the new firmware 2.3.1 and 2.3.2. Whilst extracting either I get a rar error saying the .tgz file is corrupt.

I am at the end of my tether as the one with the dust in the screen loaded without an issue.

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

I'm so sorry you're having so much trouble! And I really applaud your patience and stamina to get the Glo replaced with a new Glo each time.

Were al three Glo setups done on the same day? Or was the one with the dust under the screen setup a day or more before? It sounds like there is something wrong with the firmware files, and your computer warning you that the tgz is corrupt sort of confirms that. Perhaps the last two you tried were downloaded while Kobo was having server problems? I recall they were having difficulty with book payments (yesterday I think?) so maybe more things are going on. Try again today, maybe the issues are over.

If they're not, try again by setting up the Glo via the desktop, let it download the firmware but do not eject and disconnect. Instead, navigate to the hidden folder on the Glo: .kobo From there, delete three things:
- KoboRoot.tgz
- manifest.md5sum
- the folder named "upgrade"

Then download one of the zips I attached to this post (start with 2.3.1; that the most recent. You could also use 2.1.5, that is a more stable firmware but does not include book series information). Unzip the file and you'll get three items with the same names as the ones above. Copy those to the .kobo folder.

Then eject the device, and the Kobo should restart and upgrade itself.

If this does not work either, then your computer is doing something wrong with unpacking. I know some unzipping apps on a Mac want to further unzip the tgz file... In any case, I know the zips I added to this post work as I used them myself.

Good luck!!

Hi Mrs_Often

The first glo was done on Thursday (Australia time), the 2nd and 3rd ones Saturday (Australia time) during the day, its now 9.35 pm here, so it could have been your yesterday. lol.

I have used 2 different computers, just in case it was a computer specific issue, neither of which are macs.

I have just downloaded the 2.3.1 firmware, followed your instructions, and it has worked. It has gone through the setup and I have just inserted my sd card with books.

I am not going to be able to tell you how thankful I am. You are a genius. I was ready to give up. I was heading back to the store tomorrow to get my money back. I am just beside my self with happiness, as I really did not want to send it back.

Thank You so very much

Mark.

I'd be happy if they'd simply update the Touch to anything beyind 2.3.1 at this point.
