My H2O2 mk1 (silly naming scheme) updated itself last night and I’m also not seeing the top margin bug. All I use are epubs but they’re working just fine...

Another little fix with this fw is that the letter following a full stop is again a capital one by default. That and the improved search definitely mark this an update worth trying in my eyes ;-)

What do you mean by this? Or where do you see this?

I seem to have deleted arguably the most important part of my post... I was talking about annotations with text. I use those a lot and this has been annoying me, perhaps unreasonably so, in the last few releases.

There are normally two or three top 'margins' in ePubs, but I haven't installed this firmware and I don't know which one the bug affects. If someone could test and find out I would be very interested to know:

One is the @page margin set in the book's CSS stylesheet (or by one of the ePub top/bottom margin patches). If the bug affects this then on an unpatched device some books will be affected and others won't, depending on whether the publisher has set the @page margin.

The other 'margin' is actually a built-in 15px header at the top of the screen. This header is not present in full-screen mode, so if the bug affects this then it will only be seen in normal reading mode.

(There may also be a third top margin set in the book's XPGT stylesheet in some books, which could further complicate things.)

Other than those 2 changes, I don't see anything else different, normal page turns don't seem to be any faster.

I don't know what the comments about the top navigation bar refer to, I don't see any issue. I do patch though, and especially love getting rid of the 3rd row on the home screen now. Thanks to the many people who always put in the time to give us these useful patches.
Which fw did you install on your Glo HD please ?

*Mark 3 not available.
Im somewhat confused.On the wiki it says that the firmware is not compatible with the original H20, yet there is link for mark5 devices(which the h2o is).
So is it ok to flash the original h2o with the firmware from the mark5 link in your post?

It doesn't say it not compatible it say "Not for...H2O", although firmware 4.9.11311 is not officially release to H2O, Mark 4 and Mark 5 are available to download.
Sometime Kobo release firmware marks that are not officially release to devises or that are planing to release officially on a latter day.

I didn't see any complaints about installing mark 4 or 5.

There are hardly any new ePub eBooks these days that use an XPGT file. Also, of the ones that did that I've read, they did not set a top margin. They only set a left.right margin.

4.9.11314 is a mistake. It should be 4.9.11311.
