Thanks for your prompt, complete and very kind reply

I'm currently on firmware 3.12.1 and it's quite fast on my Kobo Aura.

If it weren't for a page refresh bug (Chapter refresh actually regreshes the screen after every page) it would be perfect... so I'm looking for a (as near as possible) bug free, old screen, simple features, slim and fast firmware version.

That would be firmware 3.19.5761 from what I've read so far.

Problem is, I tried to side load an update to 3.19.5761 (without removing the uSD) and it got bricked. I had an internal memory backup for 3.12.1, so I hard/manual factory reseted the Kobo, restored my 3.12.1 internal memory backup. Fojas cero as they say.

Then, I tried to side load an update to 4.2.8432 (without removing the uSD, again). It didn't got bricked but it didn't read my uSD ebooks even after a succesful Calibre sync... so, hard/manual factory reset, restore 3.12.1 internal memory backup. Fojas cero one more time.

Right now I'm trying to figure out a way to not stay stuck on 3.12.1, improve my reading (page refresh) experience... without re loading the whole 14.747 ebooks from scratch: Calibre helps, but only uploading to the uSD batches of 500 or so ebooks at a time (or so it goes for me, before the sync process fails with errors)

Grateful for any advice,
