Not to sure about that.

That is definitely not the case. I have tested this on all my devices with the beta firmware leading up to 4.30.18838 and with 4.30.18838. Everything is working.

Personally, I just leave it enabled all the time. If there is ever an issue, I suspect it will be well publicized here.

Hi,
Still didn't succeeded to update the firmware on my Kobo Sage.
Currently in version 4.29.18730. I have tried to restart the Sage several time and launch "Check firmware updates" with no success.The reader synchronize everything except the firmware update.

Which is not unexpected. Kobo does not release firmware to all devices in one go. It releases based on the affiliate and geolocation. They start with some smaller affiliates and then expand to other affiliates after a bit. In the past, it could take a month to reach everyone. It happens faster now, but, it probably still takes a couple of weeks.

If you want it earlier, you can manually install it, or change your affiliate to one of the ones that get it early.

Battery seems a little bit better on my Libra2. Lost 1% after one hour of reading. WiFi and Bluetooth off, lightning at 15%

Wow, let's hope it's the same on my Aura One. 😊

wi-fi turning on when it should be off + battery

I was reading on the Sage last night when suddenly I saw the wi-fi turning on and start synchronizing. I tried to turn it off, and it refused because it was synchronizing. The fan turned white but the arrows kept turning. To be clear, the first thing I do when I have a new reader or after a reset is to turn off the automatic syncing. Furthermore, I always have the patch "always show confirmation dialog before upgrading" on - because I do very occasionally turn the wi-fi on to actualize Pocket or to look up something in wikipedia.

The battery drops remain dramatic in this F/W. With wi-fi and bluetooth off, light at 30% an natural light 3 steps up, it dropped from 55% to 24% in a 2h40 plain reading - and it shouldn't have been at 55% to begin with. And it dropped from 21% to 16% in 70 minutes.
I'm done with calibrating: I went the full cycle thrice already, and I don't want it to turn off while on the go, plus I sync with the Elipsa almost every day.
Does any insider know whether Kobo considers that normal or do they plan to do something in a future F/W? I doubt Fnac would consider it sufficient reason to take it back.

Re: bluetooth and wifi turning on automatically--I've noticed that simply looking at the bluetooth menu is enough to turn on both bluetooth AND wifi. I don't know if it is turning on at other times without my knowledge, but in my opinion just looking at a specific setting should never trigger it to turn ON when I have the setting toggled to OFF.

I just tested and confirmed this - egregious! I hope someone can write a patch to stop this nasty behavior.

This precise behavior was reported (by me) when the Elipsa was released. It's not surprising it also exists with the Sage.

The same thing happens in Libra 2. Hopefully they fix it soon, because it is very annoying.

I wouldn't hold my breath. I've been dealing with it since June of this year with no fix.

So the only way around the ereader wifi and bluetooth connecting is to stop the device that's hotspotting the wifi and connecting the bluetooth from looking for the kobo device. (By turning off auto access.) (Sounds a bit double dutch, but you get the gist)

The ereader will continue to look for reception, but won't find any.

It's a workaround, but how darn annoying that it's triggered and doesn't take no for an answer, lol.
