Yeah. I'd probably still use Calibre for bulk operations. But it would be nice to download a book or two sometimes without messing with USB cords.

The patch for the shutoff timer doesn't work. My H2O shuts off in less then 24 hours. This is the patch to allow more more time until the shutdown.

My Libra took only seconds to update, possibly because I don't have many books on it yet.

It fixed the touchscreen issues. Now the Libra works correctly in all four orientations.

I'll probably need to add a few more offsets to that, then.

Looks good. Just one thing, we'd prefer if the patches weren't mentioned too much on the threads until they're officially released. Also, keep in mind they aren't guaranteed to be stable until the official release (for example, https://github.com/geek1011/kobopatc...45230b47994470).

And my request is that we don't spend time discussing the details of the patches in the firmware release threads. The fact that the patches are ready and probably any new existing patches. But, the details of what is actually in the patches, or issues getting them working, should be elsewhere.

Yes, and to add to that, if possible, bug reports or help with development and testing for in-progress updates should be on GitHub. Requests and discussion about requests belongs in the request thread. Discussion about kobopatch itself belongs in the kobopatch thread (unless it is about support with released patches). Bug reports and discussion (and everything else) for released patches belongs in the respective patch thread.

The Forma I purchased from Walmart last week is WalmartHybrid.

Edit: There is currently no firmware update available with this affiliate.

Edit 2: Interestingly, I'm still at 4.15.12920. Unknown why it has not updated to 4.17.something.

Edit 3: Changing affiliate to indigo got me the 4.18.13737 firmware.

So other than Dropbox support for the Forma, and a fix for the Libra issue mentioned, what is new in this update?

I just enable Calibre's built in server on my PC, then I can use the Kobo's web browser to download book files from Calibre without cables, over my wifi. You use the IP address of your PC on your home network like this:
Code:
http://username:password@IPaddress:8881/mobile
Note: the username and password are just whatever you put into the preferences in Calibre.

Hmm yes, that's an option too. I was under the impression primitive eink browsers weren't capable to log in to the server, but it seems I was wrong. Thanks for the tip.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I’m wondering if by 7th digit in the serial number if what is meant is 7th character counting the letter or 7th numeral in the strict sense?

I have an H2o2 and on 4.15 and something is going wrong with my attempts at manually installing the new update.
