The "code" block is the on-server identification information. (So we know if things silently change.)

Even if they were on the servers for a week it still didn't let you download it before today. I tried changing the 5.8.10 to 5.8.11 yesterday on the download links and it gave this error.

Code:

Now all you have to do is add appropriate "quote" and "code" tags to it.

Note:
No longer "pre-release" -
The links are now updated on the Amazon device pages (except no device page for the KOA2 yet).

= = = =

And for those who where not around for the original Oasis naming party, or have forgotten, or those for which English is not their native language:
"OA" is the correct abbreviation for "Oasis".

It is the "K" which is superfluous but was already deeply ingrained in our pattern of nicknames.

It's KO2. KOA2 is wrong because that's not how initials work.

It is if it's going to confuse people about what device is being mentioned.

Sweetie,
If they are that easily confused, they have no business trying to hack a kindle.

It's not about hacking. In many threads about the device the initials are used.

So the correct set of initials need to be used. KO2 is the correct initials. Would you call a Kobo Aura One KAON1 when it's clearly KA1?

No I would do the same as yourself, call the make/model I don't personally like shit.
You still don't get a vote unless you are contributing the work.
