I don't know how to install this firmware release on my H20 (first generation). Would anybody care to tell me how to do it, or point me to which part of the forum I can find instructions?

I have looked in the following parts of the forum:
- The Ultimate Kobo Tips & Tricks Thread
- List of Tweaks / Hacks / Mods
- Instructions for patching firmware 4.6.10075

Thanks in advance for the help.

@Braid

Your H2O (1st gen) is a Mark 5 device. You can manually download fw 4.6.10075 using the the download link in post #1 of this thread.

Instructions for how to manually install (i.e. sideload install) this firmware can be done by following directions in the second-half of this thread. The part labelled 'Installation Instructions for Direct Zip Files'.

P.S. You do not need to bother doing step 4 (uninstall patches) as a new firmware will automatically remove any previous patches.

I have less than 500 books and only use the main memory, so sorry, there's no comparison to how you use the device.

Have you experimented with putting just a few books in main memory?

Series sort works with search results

This might have been done in an earlier version and I have just noticed: the series sort now works with search results, so I can e.g. search for an author and have the results sorted by series. That brings back most of the functionality that was lost when the series sorting was removed after version 2.3.2, nice to finally have that working again.

Before, I'm not sure what version, but it has long been so.

Not really. I allways carry my whole library on my reader, so main memory is not an option.

Thanks for your kind reply!

Something funny I found looking in KoboReader.sqlite file, is that the Id of the Recommendations tile is "SomeFakeRecommendedTabId".

Nice to see Kobo finally address the KRACK vulnerability in wpa_supplicant.

In the first post of this thread is a link to the Mark 6 version. That's the one for the KA1. You'll have to side load though.

Koreader froze shortly after opening a book, necessitating powering it off and on again, but now seems to be working fine.

Haven't noticed so much of a difference when reading in Japanese in Nickel yet. Perhaps it's a bit more responsive. Hard to say.
