This firmware should be installable on older devices. Also, this firmware is on a way faster rollout than usual (now on almost every affiliate just 3 hours later).

Can confirm it fixes the stylesheet issue thanks to a friend testing it.

It looks like it. I have not had it installed long enough to tell whether there are any new unpleasant surprises.

It is on mine with 4.11.11980. A magnet, as would be in a sleep cover, bypasses the swipe (as one would hope and expect).

It does? Where exactly? I thought I'd tried waving a magnet all over with no success. Every other Kobo I've owned was easy to find the magic spot.

One would expect consistant behaviour: if you need to swipe when walking from sleep when using the button, than one would expect a swipe to be needed when walking from sleep when opening the cover.

And FWIW, I wish the swiping was an option, or go back to the way it used to be.

Has anyone asked Kobo if this is a feature or a bug?

I didn't say it was easy! I experimented with a solid-type fridge magnet. I eventual found a spot (although not always easily) in the upper left side of the screen (button side on the right). The location being approx 2 inches down, two inches across from the device edges, or thereabouts. So it seems.

I made a video! (Please ignore the CURB I have attached to the device.)

Ha! Sneaky! I think it relies on having a pair of magnets where you said - behind and on top, i.e. the Forma is the meat in a magnet sandwich.

Previous Kobos have had one magnet in the device and one in the cover. The official Forma cover must have one in the front cover, one in the back cover.

Not that I know of, see video I just posted above. Just one magnet at work.

Eh it’s less likely that the sleep cover will open significantly enough to wake the device accidentally than the wake/ sleep button getting pressed. I’m not saying either is very likely just that one is more likely.
