Thanks for the advice with that link! I wasn't sure if there was a separate update for the LTE model.

I have installed it now and it's got all of the features I've been reading about.

Any news on new/fixed firmware?

I've upgraded both PW2 and Voyage to 5.10.1.1 and PW2 is slow/sluggish, turns on for a minute and quite slowly loads a book. Voyage works better, but it lost part of the contents, for example a directory may show that it has 1 of 3 books downloaded, but shows as empty. You can find however this book and open it from local search... then it works (you can read it) ok.

Voyage had newest firmware installed before 5.10.1.1, PW2 probably too (at least it had custom fonts).

Amazon should at least officially acknowledge problem with botched update and prepare some statement about what they are to do about it. Radio silence isn't very good...

To Amazon's defense, they are a lot more proactive than Kobo is about botched updates. Every FW update from Kobo fixes something and introduces new features (aka bugs). If you want those new bugs fixed, wait for next update. Amazon stopped the 5.10.1.x update - now you need to go out of your way to install it. Radio silence can prevent mass hysteria.

Is it jailbroken? If no, you can't. If yes, use USBNetwork.
