    Software version 1.3.1

      Today my NG, the NOOK I keep in my purse, died--DIED.  It could not be turned on or turned off; the opening "tree" screen was constant.   I was a few blocks from B&N when this happened, so I dropped in.   B&N personnel at my local store verified my problem and tried plugging my NG in to see if that helped.  It didn't.  At that point when B&N tried to turn it on/off again, the screen developed those strange striations in the background and B&N declared it officially dead.  They gave me a new one.

       

      When I came home, I registered the new NG immediately and checked the settings to see if this were an older boxed unit which might need a software update.      The B&N support page  for NG lists the latest update as 1.2.1.  My new NOOK, however, shows software version 1.3.1.  

       

      I also checked the settings for my NST, which I was updated to the latest version.  The NST shows version 1.2.1

       

      I'm confused.

          The NST version and the NGL versions are different. I *think* 1.3.1 is the latest for the NGL.  In any case, if you turn on wifi and leave it for a bit, if there is a newer version it will probably update on its own.
