Device: Kobo HD GLO
Modification impossible on my device [KOBO]

Hi All,

First of all, thank you to the author of Calibre and the great community behind this forum.

I have a Kobo HD Glo, with the lastest firmware (4.14.12777) and the latest version of Calibre 3.42.0.

I try to modified books on my device via Calibre, but I've got a failure message (see the image in attached).

Here is the translation of the message (much easier) :

Your Kobo is running an updated version of the firmware/database. As template has no information about this updated firmware, the database edition has been disabled to avoid corruption. You can still send books in your Kobo with template, but book deletion and collection management are disabled. If you are willing to experiment and you know how to reset your Kobo with the factory settings, you can cancel this control by right-clicking on the device icon in the template and selecting "Configure this device" and then the option "Try managing a newer firmware". You may then need to reset your Kobo to factory settings.
Device database version: 152.
Device firmware version: (4, 14, 12777)

Translated with

I do not understand what it means.
Is it Calibre who don't manage the new firmware ? Or do I need to perform some actions on my device ?

I appreciate your help and support.

Thank you,
