Kobo has begun to push out a flurry of firmware updates that seeks to address a number of issues. This 4.4.9344 upgrade is applicable for the Kobo Touch A/B, Kobo Touch C, Kobo Glo, Kobo Glo HD, Kobo Touch 2.0, Kobo Aura, Kobo Aura HD, Kobo Aura H2O, Kobo Aura H2O Edition 2. One of the big problems with the new firmware is that it was causing issues with the Kobo Aura One, so Kobo pushed out 4.4.9349 just for that specific model.
Here is all of the known details about the latest firmware release. Kobo does not publicly announce new features found in updates, so this list is subject to change.
- External cards without a label were not being mounted.
- Finishing a purchased kepub didn’t mark the book as finished
One of the most compelling reasons to buy a Kobo branded e-reader is that the company continues to support legacy devices, that they stopped selling in 2011. Amazon only issues updates for newer Kindles, in a bid to prompt people to upgrade to get the latest and greatest features.
