Update koreader version

My Kobo aura one with Koreader says that the koreader update is not available in OTA. If I manually download the Koreader update to the PC and then replace the folder in the Kobo, are the reading statistics and the progress of the books lost?

Everything is kept, you overwrite only koreader files (i.e. code), not your user data.

Depending of koreader version, there were some changes for OTA, so it may also be reason why it doesn't work. Just manually download last nightly and put it on your device, everything will be fine.

Only file that is overwritten is defaults.lua, if you edited this file, rename it to defaults.persistent.lua to not overwrite it and that koreader use it instead defaults.lua.

The OTA mechanism itself is perfectly functional in principle, but due to an oversight of mine over a year ago regarding stable versions, the newer versions aren't being detected properly as new atm.

But yes, in fact all the OTA update does is download new files to overwrite.

The only big difference with overwriting the files yourself, besides convenience, is that it uses something called zsync to minimize the download. Large parts of the program tend to stay the same, so they often don't need to be updated.
