FIXED: Home button doesn't work after 2.3.1 update.

Since updating my Kobo Touch to the software version 2.3.1, the home button doesn't work. It doesn't do anything, regardless of whether I'm in a menu or reading a book, etc.

Is this a bug, or is this some weird new feature? I notice the Kobo Glo and Mini don't seem to have home buttons, so has Kobo just taken this functionality away from the Kobo Touch? I'd be pretty miffed if that were the case, since it's so handy. Not to mention how irritating it would be to have a button that now doesn't do anything..

Anyway, that's my rant. Does anyone know if this is intentional or something that will be fixed in the next update (fingers crossed)?

EDIT: Problem is fixed now. See my next post in this thread for details.

Try a paper clip reset. If that does not work try loging out of the account and log back in.
Warning, you may/will lose stats after reloging.

Update to 2.3.1
I just synchd my Touch to Desktop and was told it was synching 76 books to it !

I know I've bought a "few" with bargainmoose but not that many !

Some of them I'm sure were already on my Touch ?

Anyway after holding my breath they all seemed to, eventually, load into it.

Then I got the dreaded message that it was also installing an update to my ereader !!!

When my heart restarted I waited for this to finish, ejected and unplugged my Touch. Then the updating screen, etc, and to my wild delight it still works...... so far !

It's working again! What seemed to fix it was: Turn off, turn back on, sync, repeat. I did that what feels like a million times, but oddly enough it worked when even a reset didn't work. Nor did logging out and back in again.

But hooray, the minor bug seems to be fixed and all is well.
