Device: Kobo Aura One
Firmware 4.10.11591

I just installed the subject firmware on my Kobo Aura ONE. I can't find any release notes, so I'm not sure what's changed. The only thing that I have noticed so far is that long presses are now required to change the format of the reading progress reported in the footer.

I've notice a couple of bugs I've been monitoring still haven't been fixed, but I'll leave that for the bug report thread.

I am hoping the helpful gentleman that usually advises whether "attempt to support newer firmware" may be used with new firmware releases will comment on the compatibility of this setting with this release

The new firmware can probably be called the "Walmart" release. I believe this will be released to the Aura ONE and later devices. I don't know about the other devices as yet.

The changes I know of for this firmware are:
  • Full Overdrive support available in some of the newer devices. This is the for the Aura H20 Edition 2, Aura Edition 2, Clara HD.
  • Fix: Top margin correctly rendered when opening an epub.
  • Fix: Long press needed to change the page progress display when reading
  • Reading settings page has been rearranged a little.
  • Paging in settings that need multiple pages has been improved.
  • Config file option "AutoUsbGadget" has been added. If set to "true" in the config file, the device automatically connect to the PC when plugged in. This needs to be added to the "DeveloperSettings" section of the config file.

If I find anything else, I will update this list.

For calibre, there are no changes needed except to bump the supported firmware version number. This change has already been checked and will be in the next calibre release. Until then, it is safe to use the "Attempt to support newer firmware versions" in the drivers.

Interesting! Is this what I think it is? Borrowing from Overdrive directly from the device and having the Overdrive book be in your account for the loan period (and thus sync to all devices using that account)? Will it be available outside the US?

Someone at Kobo has obviously been watching @NiLuJe and I figure out a screen scraping solution to do this when faking a USB connection...

(Semi-joking here... could very well be be a co-incidence)

It is exactly the same support for Overdrive that is in the Aura ONE. So, linking your Kobo account to your library account and borrowing on the device. Then it syncs to any of your devices.

It doesn't appear that they have expanded the supported countries. The FAQ only lists Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

This is pretty big news about Overdrive. (At least I think it is.)

By the looks of https://geek1011.github.io/KoboStuff/kobofirmware.html it appears they have rolled back to the previous version (4.9.11311) for the Aura ONE.

The new firmware can probably be called the "Walmart" release What ?

- If I'm not "walmart" is just the name of the store, whee "Fnac", or "bestbuyca" ca = Canada.

I have version 4.10 but I do not have Overdrive, how to activate please ?
