Thank you for the advice, I just tried the Kobo Desktop and it downloaded from there.

But what about those of us that don't want our Kobo devices on the internet?
(I also archived older firmware so I could roll back when a bad release hit.)

There hasn't been a new update for a long time. The last Kobo firmware update was in August 2023 and there's been nothing since.

That's the last time we had a new Kobo firmware.

When the new devices come out, they'll have a newer firmware and then a new firmware for most devices will come out. That's how it's been when a new device comes out.
