And here are the usual screenshots of the result of the default font hack

And a few of the fonts sets posted in the next post adapated to the K3 (basically, we use the OpenType CFF font instead of a crappy TTF conversion when we can, and when the CFF looks good). Also, please check this post for those same files packaged as an update file, to avoid potential weird issues on FW 3.x.

UPDATE: To err on the side of caution regarding MR's rules on attachments, a bunch of those sets have been pulled. If you'd like to use these fonts, you'll have to get them from somewhere else, or extract them from packages from other hacks.

Tedsan's packages (Georgia, Helvetica, CMod*, ArialRndNrw)

To this end, you'll need to use jyavenard's packager. (Latest version available here).

It's a python script, so, if you're not on OS X/Linux, you'll have to setup a Python 2.x environment (It's fairly simple, you can find official installers here: http://www.python.org/download/).

Once that's done, put your update package & kindle_update_tool script in the same folder, and open your favorite command-line terminal (cmd by default on Windows) in this same folder.

Then, extract your package (named "update_myfonts_install.bin" in this example):

OS X & Linux
Code:
python ./kindle_update_tool.py e update_myfonts_install.bin
Windows (Assuming you've downloaded & unpacked the script & binfile in C:\kindle)
Code:
cd C:\kindle
kindle_update_tool.py e update_myfonts_install.bin
You'll end up with a "update_myfonts_install.tgz" file, that you'll be able to unpack with an archiver handling TAR+GZIP (tar & gunzip, 7-Zip, WinRar, ...).

In there, among a bunch of stuff, you should find your precious fonts .

Make sure they follow the usual naming scheme, and you'll be good to go .
