Question Question about Mini firmware

Hello. I have a question about the Kobo Mini. Since it's running on firmware 3.19.5761, is it possible to manually update it to the newest firmware?

Thanks.

Yes, it is. Just use the Glo firmware.

They're actually identical, and yes to both questions.

As long as you start from the final Mini FW release, so you actually get the latest Mini-specific bits, you're good to go.

(i.e., don't jump from a true factory reset to 4.xx; jump to the final Mini release first (3.19)).

EDIT: Or not, see #9.

What do you actually miss? I thought the recent firmware updates were complete for the Mini, just not officially released.

Firmware working pretty good, overall

Downloaded 4.19.14123 for Mark 4 devices from Wiki, seems to work fine except for this.
I don't know what you meant by "Glo firmware," but I just got it for all Mark 4 devices.

@davidfor: I was assuming they weren't shipping the Mini kernel/uboot anymore, but I might very well be wrong, now that you mention it .

EDIT: Yep, you're right.

Worse, FW 3.19 didn't even actually ship w/ a Mini kernel, while 4.22 does ^^.

The latest version is actually 4.22.15190 (see my signature, which will always show the latest fw version automatically).

You will need to update the firmware yet again. 4.19 was not out long due to bugs. So go get the latest 4.22 firmware.

How do I do that? I got the latest Mark 4 firmware. Do I get 4.22.16190 for Glo and put it on my Mini?

Yes. Download the firmware for the Glo and install that.

@JSWolf Nope, same problem. Except now, when I press "Invert Screen," it freezes up.
Oh, joy. Switching back to version 3...
