I updated the firmware from 4.38.21908 to 4.38.23038 (manually from pgaskin.net). Started to use the device and when I opened the pdf file the device restarted. Same with other pdfs which worked smoothly before the upgrade. So I wanted to regress to 21908. I connected it to a macbook and could see it's charging and a popup window was reading Computer detected. So clicked Connect and the display read Connected and charging, then in a while the display flashed and again read Connected and charging. But the computer didn't see the device. When I unplugged, the device after several secs restarts ..read more

Hey everyone, Lurking for a long time now, used to be more active years and years back. Reality is...I picked up an Aura H2O v2 years back when they came out and I've been...very happy with it. Seeing that there's now a colour e-ink with the Clara and I'm intrigued to update. I do read comics and graphic novels on my Kobo so having colour as an option would be a huge boon. That said...I'm not sure if colour is a compelling enough reason to upgrade right now, especially when we're on one of the first revisions of the devices. So I'm just curious...I've been pleasantly out of the loop for yea ..read more

Hello to all, my kobo glo was my first e reader but may have felt slighted when I got a Kindle a few months ago, since it was ignored for a few months. Recently I went to read a book on it and found the wifi wasn't working so I started to attempt a fix. Turns out it wasn't just the wifi but the usb connection as well so the first thing done was to try different usa-a cords with no result, then cleaned the device's usb jack again no result so I took the cover off looking for a bad solder joint, but all looked normal. The error message is"usb not recognised" while using the cable connection o ..read more

Difference in font rendering between Nickel and Koreader
MobileRead Forums » Kobo Reader

Hey guys, Really enjoying koreader here. I just have a quick question. Why does the same font at the same size in Nickel (stock launcher) vs Koreader look so different? In Nickel for example, Garamond just seems to look so thinner and less clear, also at smaller sizes it starts to look a little broken, with certain parts bolder and what not. I use the in built font weight editor in Nickel and then it starts to embolden certain parts of the letter and looks totally broken. Koreader, the font looks great at all sizes. Is there any way to get the fonts looking as great as they do on Koreader us ..read more

Before to buy a new battery, can I test to send power directly to the card ? Or something to check to see if the reader is really dead ..read more

Elipsa 2E If you have one, is it worth the price tag?

I honestly scoff at the fact the whole package is $350. The Scribe is < $100 than the Elipsa 2E. I really want to keep it Kobo and I do write marginalia in most of my technical books so having something like this would be a boon to me. However... $350? Have you found it worth the price? :chinscratch ..read more

Suppress link on home screen?
MobileRead Forums » Kobo Reader

The lower right link on the home screen is sometimes blank, but usually leads to something like the last collection opened or the result of the last search. (I've outlined the one I mean in red on the image attached - in this case, it'd take me to my Read collection.) Is there a way of suppressing it altogether (e.g., a patch)? I don't find it useful, and would prefer to have that area of the screen always blank. (Ideally, I'd like to lose the Home screen altogether, and have My Books/Collections as a default screen, but I can't see this becoming an option. Having said that, it used to be po ..read more

I have a Libra 2. When I press and hold a button, I expect it to skim forward or backward through the book. However, it only goes forward or backward one page. Is there some setting I might have messed up? The only changes I've made is to add some fonts and set page refresh (numPartialUpdatePageTurns) to 75. Latest FW. What should I do to get this to work ..read more

Glo Using DB Browser

I have been trying to access my Kobo Glo N613. Have tried installing new firmware but visiting Kobo Desktop and having it upgraded results in losing access. A factory reset gets it functioning again but if I log on again I get the same result, a jagged black line down the middle of the screen and nothing works. I would like to try editing the KoboReader.sqlite file to get over the need to register. Trying to edit this file as suggested in other posts dose not work for me. I have installed DB Browser and this seems a better way to edit the file but as yet I have been unable to avoid the registe ..read more

Clara BW Setup Help (automated workflows)

Hi there! I hope I'm in the right forum I got my first eReader 2 days ago, a Clara BW. Everything seems to work fine, except the lack of option to automatically sideload books over WiFi. I've done some googling and been trying to find how to set everything up, but it seems like I've just gotten some puzzle pieces and not the complete picture. So most of my stuff is in ePub, I do have some PDFs which I would love to read, but I have noticed that the stock OS/reader application wasn't really PDF friendly. I do have some books that are part of a series, which I would prefer to have a collectio ..read more
