Sony reader updating firmware now
Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.Now that Sony has closed down their ebook business in the United States and Canada, and have successfully transitioned most of their customers’ ebook libraries over to Kobo, they are wrapping up loose ends by issuing firmware updates to the last three generations of Sony ebook readers.They say to sync your ereader to add the new titles to your library.Well, there is no sync button on a Sony Reader like there is a Kobo ereader, so there appears to be no way to add your Kobo library wirelessly at this point in time—guess they’ve still got some work to do.The new Version 5.0 firmware update is planned to be released in January 2020.
Hopefully everything starts to come together and things starts working properly soon.
The update is being pushed out now so all you have to do is connect your Sony Reader to a Wi Fi network to get a notification about the update.
