If it persists it may be because of a corrupt file. To check indexing status, go to Home screen and search for ‘.’ (I.e. a single period). On the ensuing search results page, tap Text in Books, and it may show Items Not Yet Indexed. Tap on that and it will show names of things it is indexing. Deleting these and redownloading should fix things.
Thanks for that.
It came up with a single book (A Graham Greene novel) un-indexed out of around 1,400.
I've deleted it & will see how things go from here.

Again, thanks very much for your help with this.

Is my experience just a one-off?

Airplane mode on. Screen brightness @ ~ 20%. (No change from prior settings)
I had the same experience on my Voyage. Manually applied the new update on Wednesday night. Voyage wasn't used until I turned it on this morning (Friday) and battery level showed near empty. My Voyage is permanently in airplane mode.

I did add three or four books to the Voyage just after I updated the firmware. I don't think that indexing the four books would have caused such a quick drain, but maybe it was stuck for awhile on one of the books. I did check to see if it was still indexing when I noticed the battery level and it wasn't.

I'm charging it now and am hoping this is an anomaly. I'll report back when I know more.

How do you find out what book is not indexing?

No battery drainage on my Voyage. Time is currently turned on, can't decide if I like it or not. Hmm.

I don't think you can. As far as I know you can just determine if your Kindle is still indexing or not. That's why it's a good idea to only load a few books at a time, so you can at least narrow the problem book down to one of the few you're currently uploading.

I manually updated to this from the Amazon website. I do not see any change in notes. I like the clock option. I do not see that it is necessary for all you need to to do is tap in the top center to see the clock, light settings... etc

With a Kindle you do a "none-such" search. Search for a made-up word you know can't exist (something like 'oe4!#d8'). If there's a book still indexing, the Kindle will inform you that "'such-and-such' book is not yet indexed." I just had to do that with my Kindle 4. I put my Catholic Encyclopedia on it so I could move it to Calibre – and then next day saw that my battery was nearly dead. Sure enough, it's still indexing that book. (Just checked, still indexing, so I'll probably just leave it on the charger for a while longer – or maybe I'll just remove it.)

You check if anything is still indexing through search. Then in the "in books" or what it is called exactly it will say how many are not yet indexed. The number itself is a link, click on it and it will open the list of all unindexed books.

Has anyone else noticed that if you choose to display the time on the KO2, that it affects the page turn buttons? Pressing the button to turn the page doesn't register so you press again and it skips a page. Doesn't happen every time, but annoyingly often. When you turn off the time display it reverts to its usual consistency.

The button bug has been around since launch and I was hoping that this update fixed it, Guess not. Pretty disgusting that amazon hasn't fixed this yet. One of the biggest selling points of the device is its buttons, and they haven't worked correctly since I bought this damn thing.

Oh, and I still can't get a case either. What is Amazon doing?

Why can't you get a case? When I look on Amazon I see at least six different Oasis 2 cases.

I don't have the faintest idea what you mean. There's a huge variety of different Oasis cases available. Why are you unable to get one?

Do we know if this update triggers a re-index of your library?
