Exclamation Be sure to update your Kobo Arc by 2019-02-28 or else

We have important news for you regarding your Kobo Arc tablet.

Your Kobo Arc tablet requires a mandatory software update by February 28, 2019. To stay aligned with global internet security standards, we are releasing a mandatory software update for all Kobo Arc tablet models. Without this update, your Kobo Arc tablet will no longer be able to exit the setup process after a factory reset is performed.

Rest assured that no items in your Kobo library will be affected; you will continue to have access to all reading material you have purchased or downloaded from Rakuten Kobo.

How to update your tablet's software
Follow the prompts on your Kobo Arc to install the update before February 28. If you are unable to do this before February 28, you will need to install it manually by following these steps:

1.Open the Settings app.
2.Tap 'About Kobo Arc' at the bottom of the Settings list.
3.Tap 'System updates'.
4.You should see a 'Check for updates' message.
5.Tap 'Check Now' and follow further instructions.


Read with Kobo with the free Kobo App
You can download the free Kobo App available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and read with Kobo on a device you already own.

If you have any questions or concerns about this message, please contact Kobo Customer Care.


Last update was over 4 years ago. They couldn't even be bothered to update the revision number on this one.

Does anyone have any info on what this is actually going to change on the Arc? I am running Apex Launcher on mine and don't want to find out it will block or change that. :-/

The only change needed is to update the security protocols to use TLS 1.2 (possibly even TLS 1.3). SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 are not considered secure and TLS 1.1 is marginally secure and should be gone by the end of the year.

Thanks David! I took the plunge and updated it and no issue with Apex launcher. As you said, it is mainly a security update and doesn't seem to have changed anything else.
