That's a new one to me. How hot was it?

Same as anything you might have sitting in direct sunlight on a warm day -- I"d call it hot to the touch, but not scary hot.

I've joined this forum just because of how many problems I've been having with my Glowlight 3 since the firmware update.

Note: I pretty much exclusively use it to sideload library books.

1st... My Nook was getting corrupted over and over, the only solution being a factory reset each time.

Then I thought I might have fixed it, by deregistering/reregisering it from Adobe Digital Editions (the program I usually utilize.) I also didn't reload the book I thought may or may not have been corrupting it?

However, I started having I guess a minor issue, in that the screen won't refresh by tapping.

Today I've tried to load a couple new library books, and one of them didn't appear. That's been a longstanding issue from before the update, which I could usually get around by loading it from AN OLD VERSION of Calibre. (A newer version would corrupt everything.)

So... I tried that trick, but then none of my library books would open, and I got an error message. Luckily the whole device wasn't corrupted, but I had to delete the books and reload them to get them to work again (aside from the previously unloadable one.)

I went to see if maybe there was an update to the update of the firmware, but I'm getting "Check for System Update Failed, please try again later."

I guess I might try the newest version of Calibre again later? This is such a headache, though.

I'm not sure if my long post last night was altogether necessary. After hours of trying many things, I updated Adobe Digital Editions from 3.0-ish to whatever is most current, and finally the missing library book has transferred successfully.

I will update in a week or two if everything holds! I just didn't want anyone to spend time replying to my previous post, in case the problem is solved?

I got back and am playing with my Plus (2015). I had the same "failing to update" issue you have. Finally got it to "take" by clicking the "All" tab on the top and then clicking the Install button. I may have just been lucky though. This is the 4.9.5.5 update, not the 5.x mentioned in another post. I think the upgrade is worth it as it seems to be quicker. When I loaded in a book before the little dots kept going for a bit, not it's one or two dots and done.

I'm going to do a "my impression" post but, since that's more general, I'll do it separately.

Seems to me so far like the new firmware has fixed the problems losing sideloaded books after deleting one or two, and also fixed the problem with the many hours long delay forgetting all the books after sideloading new books, before restoring the list of books.

I'm slowly trying the occasional delete and sideloading more than a few at a time, and so far the response has been correct and quick.

Right on. I'm curious to see what you think. My only issues with the Plus is I wish it had more space available (I filled the 2.5GB) and I just prefer Kobo's OS.

I'll give it a shot. The Plus is just fine as is really. At this point I'm just annoyed that it keeps telling me there's an update, but then it won't update.

Well the new firmware has, no surprise, a bug. They fixed the "deletes everything" problem, and now the Nook won't, ever, delete anything. It claims it will, it warns it will, it says it did, but nope, the books are still there. The little circling-arrows icon to reset the book list doesn't update the contents.

Bother.

Odd. I just tested a side-loaded book on mine and (at first) it still showed it, but when I tried to open the book it couldn't. When I went back to the library it was gone. So, delayed reaction (I guess) but it did delete the book.

EDIT: When I opened my Nook via my computer, the cover art and metadata remained, but not the book itself. I deleted the complete folder, copied the book back and everything seems to be working.

Hm. Not seeing that delayed response on mine.
I"ll look into the folders on the (Mac) desktop and see what remains there.

I sure wish the new owners of BN would put some of their millions toward beta testing.
