FW 3.1.1 warning for Mark 4 Touch (N905C)

Note that there seems to be a problem with firmware 3.1.1 on the late model Kobo Touch (N905C, i.e. Mark 4 hardware) that I have not seen reported.

If you do a manual firmware update to 3.1.1 using Murg's direct link posted in the Developer's Area, everything will seem to go well. Once you try plugging your Kobo to a PC via USB, you will find that the reader goes into an endless reboot cycle and never appears on the PC (verified in linux and Windows 7). A Factory Reset will restore proper USB operation. This was tested on two different N905C Touches and both exhibited the same behavior.

USB connection to PC with firmware 3.0.1 works properly.

Same problem here with 3.1.0 and 3.1.1, cf. this post. davidfor passed my stack log on. I did not hear of any response though. Did I really expect this to happen?

tshering: I'm sorry to say, that I completely forgot to do that. I remember planning to wait a few days in case another log came in, but, it slipped my mind after that. I have just sent the email with a link to this thread an the original post.

Writing the email had me wondering how you got the log off the device. It couldn't connect via USB and a factory reset was needed to go back to another firmware. So, how?

I can think of a couple of ways it might have been done. One would be a WiFi Telnet approach. The other would be using Sergey's USBnet, included in his KoboLauncher. I use that with WinSCP and Putty, upon occasion. There is a good chance that at least one of these approaches would work in the described situation.

Luck;
Ken

David, thank you for the clarification and for having it sent now.

A further possibility, apart from those mentioned by Ken and Peter would be to start a script (for instance from Kobolauncher or fmon; or -without third party dependencies- from rcS) that copies the logs to the external SD.
Actually, I re-installed FW 3.0.1 by the use of the (now outdated) start menu, without the need of a factory reset.
Thank you again for passing on the log.
