Does anyone experience the same behavior?
On my Aura HD with this F/W I can't get to page 2 of reading settings. I go to reading settings and it says page 1 of 2. Tapping or swiping won't get me to page 2, and if I tap on "Page 1 of 2" and enter 2 for the page number followed by tapping the Go button, it just clears the whole page below the title of "Reading Settings" and still says "Page 1 of 2".

Is there still a page 2 in reading settings?

I do get to page 2 by swiping, but when I do the page number thing, I get the same behaviour as you. (The only thing on page 2 is the checkbox for "Track reading activity".)

Thanks, Jon. I've been waffling on whether or not to update manually my Glo HD; now I'll just let it update OTA. (Hasn't happened yet.)

And it isn't going to update unless your affiliate is set to "rakutenbooks". As stated earlier in the thread, this firmware version is only being released to the Japanese market. But, there will should be a release for the Aura ONE Limited in the next few days. And that will probably go to the other device shortly afterwards.

According to Jon's post, it's now been released to other affiliates as well, hence my decision to wait on the OTA update.

Jon's post is a standard post generated from https://geek1011.github.io/KoboStuff/kobofirmware.html. It checks the listed affiliates and shows the latest firmware found for any of these affiliates. If you go to the site and click the "Other affiliates" button, it will show the firmware version for each of these affiliates. And "rakutenbooks" is the only one getting 4.6.10075. The others are all on 4.6.9995.

Plus, my information comes from Kobo. When this firmware was detected, I asked what was going on. I posted the response early in the thread.

OK, thanks, David. Guess I'll go back to waffling.

Question Touch A/B & C

Hello,

I installed the version 4.6.10075 on my old Touch A/B (Fnac) and it works well, except I continue to have 2 big black squares on the bottom right and left of the screen. As I remember, it appears on 4.6 but I am not sure.
I got the link from the message of JSWolf on Kobo Firmware 4.6.10075 (thread #90) : http://download.kobobooks.com/firmwa...-4.6.10075.zip.

Do you know why the version is sticked to 4.5.9587 on http://geek1011.github.io/KoboStuff/kobofirmware.html?

Do you know if the 2 black squares are link to the firmware or the epub?

Is there a way to downgrade?

Sorry for all my questions

Thanks

Kobo stopped sending out firmware 4.6.9995 for the Touch shortly after release. I believe it was because of some display problems reported here. But, they left the download available to allow manual installs. I don't think 4.6.10075 was ever sent to the Touch, but Kobo have uploaded the firmware file to the expected place. So you can download and install it. I think it still has the display problems mentioned, but, not everyone is affected by it. When it was discussed, I couldn't reproduce it on my Touch.

You've actually answered your own question. Kobo stopped sending the 4.6.9995 upgrades to the Touch when the display problems you are seeing was reported. They left the file there and created the update for 4.6.10075 but are not automatically sending it out.

It's in the firmware, but it doesn't affect everyone. Some people see it all the time. I don't. I can get it sometimes, but can't reliably reproduce it.

While it is not officially supported, it is safe to manually install version 4.5.9587 over these later versions. Of course, I recommend taking a backup of the book partition just in case, but it should be OK.
