I can't say I've seen any bad problems with WiFi reported for the Aura ONE. Especially not as bad as you are stating. I'd suggest starting a thread to discuss it as someone might have an idea.


Why do you have to reset the device? If there is an update, the desktop application should download it and copy it to the device. If there isn't an update, then it should only sync some books and nothing else.
so far, I happened to have my device updated once. as far as I remember, it didn't show on desktop app.
But the app itself has notified for update.
anyway thank you for inputs.

I use my iPad to download the correct firmware (from the announcement link posted here) and save it in my SanDisk™ Connect Drive app's download folder, turn that drive on, and watch for it to connect to my network. Then I move the firmware from the app's download zone over to an "uploads" folder on the drive. Next time I turn on my laptop or my netbook, I just plug that drive and the Kobo in, back up the Kobo in case something goes wrong, back up the Kobo's database on the Kobo itself as a second form of protection, and then unpack the firmware ZIP file into the .kobo folder. Eject the reader, let it do its thing, and if all goes well, plug it back in and make a fresh backup to replace the one I just finished. This also gives me a chance to set the drive letter again, since Win10 doesn't realize that this is the same reader with updated firmware.

The uncommon part of that, of course, is the special wifi-enabled USB stick. However, if you've got one of those USB OTG drives that'll plug right into whatever mobile device you're reading this on, it oughta work in a similar way.
wow! I will try to update in this way. about wifi dongle, it doesn't seem rational to use an external device all the times. I do not need the wifi as long as firmware works properly.
most of the time books in pdf must be trimmed for ebook readers, so a laptop always is required!
Tnx any way

4.3.8871 also fixes the problem of the light turning back on.

Device: Kobo Aura H2O
Hello
My Kobo Aura H2O can not be switched on since the last firmware update. I have already removed the internal SD card to see which files it still contains. Unfortunately, this SD card is no longer accessible.

I would like to use a new SD card, unfortunately I do not have the firmware image.

Can someone help me there. You're welcome.

Many Thanks

Opening the device is a drastic thing to do, especially for the H2O. Did you try a factory reset first?

In any case, I've sent you a PM with the link to the image.

Sigh. David is in a different timezone (Australia). Additionally there are threads for distinct Kobo models to request an image.

Didn't know that. I just got the device and this place seemed the right spot. I'll look for the correct thread.
