Instructions for installing dictionaries manually

This will be fleshed out, for now this is a place holder post.



For now, here are the instructions for ShellShock's Chambers English dictionary:

Chamber's Twentieth Century Dictionary of the English Language


To use the new dictionary:
  1. Connect your Kobo to your PC.
  2. On the Kobo go to the ".kobo\dict" folder, and rename "dicthtml.zip" to "dicthtml.backup.zip". This backs up your existing English dictionary (which I assume you already have installed).
  3. Download the appropriate zip file below and unzip it to extract the dicthtml.zip file inside. Do not unzip the dicthtml.zip file.
  4. Copy the dicthtml.zip file to the ".kobo\dict" folder on the reader.
  5. Eject/disconnect your Kobo.
  6. Go into the dictionary screen, e.g., if you have a book open, tap the book icon on the bottom menu, and select Definition.
  7. Flip the language from English to e.g., Deutsch and back again. This makes the Kobo refresh the English dictionary cache. You have to do this once.
  8. The new dictionary is now ready to use.
