Considering some of the books I've seen people purchase in local thrift shops, there are some who would be willing to accept a book that looks as if it was last used to wrap garbage.

Sorry for my late reply; I had this problem during previous firmware transition; so I have factory reset my device with cable connected and reinstalled my content. I have tried the same book preview and it loaded successfully this time; however it reset again after I have played with the font settings Whatever. Then I converted three small .docx files to Kepub with Calibre 2.75 with tablet profile to read and voila! all three files reset the device I was rich now everytime the device resets itself.

My only wish, Kobo Dev Team put an automatic crash log sending procedure via wifi for analysis after each reset; I'm sure they must have a lot of data to analyze.

edit: epub conversion worked for three files without a problem.

Is it restarting when you change the font settings while looking at the preview, or for any books?

Are you converting to epub first, or direct to kepub? It should be the same, but something might have crept in with the two conversions. Or it might get cleaned up. Any chance of seeing one to test?

I tried the custom menu header bar reduction by 50%. I found that it was not easy to tap the icons. I then tried 33% and that works much better.

Also, for those installing 4.2.8110, if you've had a different hyphenation dictionary, remember you'll have to reinstall. I had to reinstall to get hyphenation back to working properly.

Here's the link to the better English and French Hyphenation dictionaries.

That's 100% right with the Kobo origin cover. Works absolutely fine here.

I updated my Aura H20 with the file mentionned above. Now opening an epub seems snappier. However I found there are some issues:
1. Missing collections created in the previous fw, however if I created a new one with the same name, it will appears again.

2. I cannot connect to wifi with user name and password. The new fw thinks it is a hotspot and open a blank page. This wifi connection was working before.

Not sure if I need to do a factory reset. Haven`t got a chance to do it.

Update:
I did a factory reset and the firmware reverted back to the version before 3.19 and the subsequent sync updated it to 3.19.
I didn't know the manual updating the fw is not permanent.

Update 2:
I got my Aura One and the same wifi connection issue exists (#2 above). So it is firmware issue not related to hardware.

Is it worth updating H2O from 3.19 to 4.2? What are the benefits?
The wifi problem doesn't really affects me, as I don't use a wifi with username and password.

Wait for an official release would be my advice.

4.2.8110 does work on the H2O. But, I see no benefit. I do hope we get a new firmware for the H2O sometime soonish.

Thanks. If there is no real benefit, then I don't see the reason to mess with the update.

I think any benefits to 4.2.8110 is for the Aura One and the Aura Edition 2.
