After about a year since the last version, I'm excited to announce the release of version 1.3 of my free ebook of Kindle DX & K3 tricks
. It can be read directly on the web page or downloaded in the Mobi format for Kindle and EPub for other readers.
This version could not have happened without amazing advances the developers have made on hacks this past year, and without the copious feedback of many readers. Thank you all!
Special thanks (wow) (in alphabetical order) to NiLuJe, OrangeType, Yifan Lu and other developers.
This project can never be complete, of course, as so much is happening on the device.
Cross-announcing on MR and KB, where a number of people have also contributed to this version.
Gratefully taking suggestions for the next one.
Thanks to all for sharing.
Wishing you all a beautiful day,
