It may work. You will not know for sure if you do not try it. You will only have problems running K5 software on a K3 if it depends on something that is in the K5 but not in the K3, whether that is a newer loadable library, or a touchscreen, or newer CPU instructions that the older CPU does not support. Well-written software should fall back to software methods when hardware is missing (such as software floating point on computers that do not have floating point hardware). I try to write code that runs on all the eink kindles, such as most of my various demos that I published here. You can use my source code in your programs to do the same stuff.
