I have just done a little looking. From the only database backup I have with me now, the stats were working with firmware version 4.7.10364. While 4.7.10364 has only been released officially to the Aura ONE LE, it will be safe on all the Mark6 device. And, I have run it on all my Kobo devices with no problems.

I have a comment: I have the stat working for a book I sideloaded prior to the firmware change, I've got to check now if they work with book sideloaded later.

And a question: @davidfor, any special functionality at 4.7.10364?

From what I can see, the stats aren't being stored at all. Anything there before the firmware should stay unchanged.

And I reported the problem in the beta group. I think the response can be summed as:

"Special"? I don't know, but it probably depends on if you are to lazy to lift you finger after swiping across the screen while reading kepubs.

You mean in 4.6.10075? I'm a little surprised at that. But, the version in 4.7.10364 is a bit different. Unfortunately, Kobo weren't happy with it and decided to delay it.

Ok, I see what you say ( I've installed 364 in My Aura One to see if there was any difference after asking). You're right, it is not the same, but not something exciting. Nested collections or series sheet, that would be wonderful.

It is a function that has been asked for here. And matches a function on the Kindles. I'm not sure if I'd use it much.

Although I like some of the new features, like the much faster opening of the library and the screen refresh at the start of each chapter, I decided to go back to the solid 3.19.5761. I can live with its drawbacks as long as the pages turn, and this firmware version has NEVER froze on me. I am glad this seems to be a problem only a few of us experience. I still have my fingers crossed that the next version will be a winner for me.

I too have the original H2O and I have NEVER experienced what you are experiencing. My H2O works very well. I suggest you install 4.7.10413 and validate the ePub (or kepub) you are using that's acting up. If it doesn't validate (using epubcheck 4.0.2) then you need to fix it and once fixed, try it again. If it still isn't working, I suggest you factory reset and then install 4.7.10413.

I know this is not an issue with any of the firmware for the H2O. I don't know where your ePub is coming from, but something isn't right. It's either a problem with your eBook(s) or some other problem that (I hope) can be fixed with a factory reset and a reload of the new firmware.

The estimated time remaining in a KePub book still works, and seems to be accurate, but the stats for the current book shown on my "Activity" page are all zeros even after I have been reading for hours, and the total hours read has not increased.

The problem of the stats not being shown on the ratings page after finishing a KePub book is probably just a side-effect of this, it sees that the stats are all zero and so doesn't display them.

(Edit: The heroine in this book is called Terisa Morgan, or sometimes Lady Terisa of Morgan. I feel like I've heard that name somwhere ...)
This is what baffles me about Kobo firmware development. They've been hammering on this thing for years and should have a rock solid operating system at this point that only needs a little fine-tuning now and then, but instead there are major bugs that have persisted across firmware releases (for instance, the two-finger light adjustment on the 1st generation Aura has been screwed up one way or another in every single release after 3.12.1), and it seems like every new release ships with significant new bugs that should have been caught during testing.

I love my Kobo and will probably buy another if anything ever happens to my beloved Aura, but seriously, what's the deal?

You're conflating operating system with applications. Because they do have a rock solid operating system. How often does your Kobo crash, dump core, spontaneously (seemingly) reboot, etc? If your experiences are anything like mine then the answer is never or close enough. Mostly because the OS doesn't change much and what does change is typically heavily tested well before Kobo start using it. It's a benefit of using a Linux kernel and Busybox.

Applications are an entirely different kettle of fish. This is things like the home screen, the ePub reader, the kePub reader, the PDF reader, etc. Applications are near-constantly moving targets. Kobo are developing for four generations of devices with different characteristics and features. Devices which don't lend themselves to rigorous automated testing because they're effectively appliances and not general purpose computers. And Kobo's development teams are much smaller than the global Linux kernel development community, and I would guess smaller than Amazon's Kindle crew.
