ok, the only way I could get it to turn on was to take out the SD card and then use the pinhole reset. so I think that qualifies as the first 2.6.1 bug

Hi

It sounds like at least some user feedback was taken into account (the more noticeable battery alert), which is good. Is the book title still constantly visible while reading epubs?

Which version are you upgrading from? After the soft-reset did the update apply correctly?

Thanks,

Is the wasted menu space at the bottom of the screen gone as well?

Thanks,
I was upgrading from 2.5.2

It wouldn't apply correctly until I removed my external SD card, then did the soft reset. Then it applied perfectly. Then I put in my SD card and it froze for a very short time, maybe 30 seconds (no message regarding SD card), and then went back to functioning normally, with the SD card's books showing.

Edit: actually, it might have worked on a soft reset if I'd waited 3 or 4 minutes. After the first very long freeze, I was less patient on the soft resets. but the first one I waited quite a long time before trying anything.

However I think there may be an issue when starting up from off, that it treats the SD card as new books every time ...I've described it in post #14 below.

Doubtful. But they could have added one more line of text and still allowed for the menu. Hopefully someone will report.

2.6.1 Bug

Now my glo is behaving like I'm adding all the books on my SD card every time I power off and on. Without removing the SD card. Not just that it freezes on startup at the third tile of the happyface screen for 3 or so minutes, but it also shows a tile "238 new books added" each time.

Excellent!! I will upgrade from 2.5.1.

Numbering

After 2.5.2, we have 2.6.1. Next one will be... say... 2.7.4? Anyway, who cares, EPUB book title is gone, I don't ask for more;
