My crystal ball is still broken. I cannot answer questions like "will this work on that device", because I don't have the device to test it.

This is the developer's corner, not the newbie's corner - so you are expected to know what you're doing, and you are expected to try it and to report back if it works.

That said: no, I'm not trying to be an asshole. Really. I'm actually a nice person, and I'm trying to help people where I can. But (and this may just be subjective) I have the impression that lately, there is a flood of requests which are all alike, and which can be summarized as: "will this work for me?" where people have obviously not even tried to do things, but are asking for full-fledged solutions. Again, this is the developers' corner, so you shouldn't expect easy solutions, but rather you are expected to be willing to invest a bit of effort or experimentation.

A great contribution of yours could have been "Cool, I tried it, and it also works on a Kindle 3" or "I tried it, and it also (almost) works on the Kindle 3, but I had to slightly modify this and that". This would have been a nice contribution, because the amount of information in the thread would have increased.

Instead, you're just asking the same old question: "Will it work for me?" - I don't know, because I'm not you, and I don't have the devices that you have. If everybody just keeps asking whether it works, and nobody actually tries it, we're going to stay in that state forever.

Whoa... ok, I realize that this sounds rather harsh. It definitely isn't meant to be a personal attack on you, so please don't take it as such. It's more like a general comment, reflecting the posts received lately.

And now anyway... I don't own neither a KDX nor a K3. But from my understanding, the firmwares *might* well be sufficiently similar for this method to actually work on the K3. If you could test it and report back, that would be very much appreciated.
