Kobo Update 4.10 Adds Overdrive Integration to Aura H2O2 and Aura Clara HD

Kobo has actually released new firmware update for Aura H2O2 and Aura Clara HD. But only adds library support for users in specific countries: Canada, UK, US, Australia, and New Zealand. So other Kobo owners will have to continue to use Adobe Digital Editions to transfer library ebooks using a computer and a USB cable.

When Kobo launched the Aura One two years ago, they thrilled fans by integrating support for library ebooks, only to frustrate us by leaving the feature out of subsequent Kobo models like the Aura H2O2 and the Clara HD.

However, Kobo’s new firmware Update 4.10 for its current ereader models that give owners the ability to access their local public libraries directly to their devices. Once they add their library account to their ereader, they can search for titles, place holds, and download library ebooks from inside the Overdrive section of the Kobo store on the device.

For those people who can't update to the latest firmware automatically, you can go to github to download it manually.
