Two Kobo Mini questions

I've had a Kobo Mini for years and recently gave it to my daughter. Now that I have a KA1 to compare it to, I have a few questions I'm hoping Mini veterans can answer.

1) What is the most recent firmware I can install on it? I'm running version 3.4.1 5/25/14.
2) When I make a bookmark (dog ear) on the Kobo Mini by tapping in the top right corner, I can't unmake the bookmark by tapping in the top right corner again. That's how the KA1 and the Kobo app on my iPad work. On the Mini, I have to go into annotations and manually remove the bookmark instead. My daughter may find that confusing. I sure do. Bug, as designed, or is there a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up Kobo Mini compatible with firmware 4.4.9

I answered my own questions.

1) The Kobo Mini is compatible with firmware 4.4.9. I just installed it, and it works great.
2) Removing a dog ear requires a long press. Hold your finger down on the dog ear for about 3 seconds, and the bookmark will be removed.

Cheers.

For most recent firmware, someone asks this question and a little while later answers it the same way you did

I don't think I've heard that before. It isn't the case for any of my devices, but I don't have a Mini.

It doesn't matter. The last official firmware for the Mini was 3.4.1, as I recall.

I know, but since the newer one only fixed the sdcard issue (and maybe some smaller probs) I didn't bother upgrading to 4.4.9344

EDIT: Just installed version 4.4.9344. Same result for the dog-ear as in the older 4.4.9 version

Odd. We have the hardest time removing dog ears. So far, only a long press does the deed. I'll try it again, but I doubt it'll make a difference. It's not like I didn't try short presses.
