How can I upgrade firmware?

Good day,

On my PocketBook, to upgrade the firmware, I had to download a ".bin" file and copy it to the reader. The upgrade was automatic when the reader is restarted.

With my Kobo Touch, I don't see any link to the firmware.
The only links are for a Windows or Mac application: Kobo Desktop.

I can't install this application in my computer.
I can't install a VM with one of this OS in my computer.


Is there a way to download and install the firmware?
(I don't have wi-fi)

Check out this thread

There is a link to the new firmware, plus instructions to put it on the Kobo. Should work on most platforms (Linux, BSD, Windows&Mac). BTW, if you are on Linux, you can install the Kobo Desktop app using Wine&Winetricks. There is another thread about it in the forums. Updates&Syncing works with that setup, I use it myself.
