The new Touch should be a much better experience than the WiFi. But, in case you want to play...

To block the firmware download, there are a couple of things you can try:

- Use the desktop application. It will still download the update, but you can delete the files from the device before disconnecting. You should be able to use the desktop app to get the Kobo books onto the device.

- You can also do this after an update over WiFi. This isn't as useful with the current devices and firmware because the download the update first, and don't do the sync. I don't know if the older firmware did it differently.

- Edit the file "version" on the device. This includes the version number. From memory, changing this to a higher number would stop the update in earlier versions of the Touch firmware. It might work on the WiFi.

I don't know if the rest of it is firmware or hardware. Did you use a new SD card when you restored the image? A failing card might explain some it.
