Yes, I have the white box turned off but miss the % read I would really like the option to have the Touch version of the banner.

Thanks David!

Have any brave souls tried this update yet? Any clue what it does (or purports to do)?

I watche one Kobo WiFi automatically update. I didn't spend much time with it after the update so don't really know what it does and the owner hasn't mentioned any major changes or problems. As usual, Kobo is very silent on what changes were made.

Regards,
David

If you are using calibre, make sure you are up to date. The firmware changed a device id and I had to add that to the driver. Other than this, the people who reported the bug didn't see any problems with the update. And if it helps, there were both Mac and Windows users.

On my newly bought Aura HD I have firmware 2.1, but the model is N204B. Which update should I download?
This is my first Kobo, so I have no idea about the variety of the models and updates of different models but on the first page I don't see my model listed?

To the best of my knowledge there is only one 'flavour' of AuraHD. In post #1 the various firmwares for the AuraHD are labelled 'Mark 4 Hardware: Aura HD/Glo (N905C Model)' (the N905C is a late model of a Kobo Touch, I think).

Also, the firmware you currently have is probably 2.10.0 not 2.1.

Yes, you are right, firmware is 2.10. In Settings/Device information/Serial number it says N204B so I am probably wrongly assuming that is the model.
I downloaded 3.0.0 update, unzipped, copied it put it in .kobo directory, disconnected but nothing is happening. I powered if off and on, still no reaction

When you unzip the firmware file you should end up with 3 items:
KoboRoot.tgz (a file)
manifest.md5sum (a file)
upgrade (a directory)

These are the 3 items to drag into the .kobo directory on the AuraHD.

Then disconnect the AuraHD safely from the computer before unplugging the USB cable.

The Kobo should then think for a short while before starting to do it's upgrading - with suitable messages on the screen. You should eventually end up at the Home screen when it's finished.

P.S. Go to Settings - Device Information and look at 'Software version' to see whether the upgrade happened.

Some report that it has been solved in 3.1.0 but we are still waiting for the 3.1.0 link to appear.

I resolved it resetting the Glo, updating to 2.6.2 and then to 3.0.0.
This solved also the no light at 1% after standby bug

Firmware 3.1.0 download links

The links for the 3.1.0 firmware are:

Mark 4 (Aura HD, Glo)

http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...date-3.1.0.zip

Mark 5 (Aura)

http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...date-3.1.0.zip

I have only tested these downloads on an Aura HD, Glo and Aura. While the Mark4 should load on a Touch N905C or a Mini, I have not tested this. Given the lack of support for the Mini in the last firmware release and the lack of a mark3 release for 3.1.0, it's definitely something to be done knowing that it may require a factory reset.

Regards,
David

Good morning. I installed the new firmware 3.1.0 on my KOBO KOBO Glo and my Mini. Always display the problem on Home KOBO mini, book covers protruding from the screen. Always the problem of the light which comes on again after a standby sleep with sleep cover when the brightness setting is set to 1%. This is very annoying when reading at night in the dark and it is not set to at least 2%. By bug against the club eve when you do not touch the screen to open a watch seems to be finally fixed. Sorry for my english ...
