OK< I am getting this weirdness happening. After I have copied the font files into the font files of the kindle, I eject the kindle which is when I am supposed to restart. BUT - I am having issues. First issue was the 'attached kindle' page did not disappear from the kindle, but I could see the battery icon and space left on the top of the kindle. So I could not get to the settings page to restart. Finally got to the screensaver pages, and then when trying to wake the kindle, all that happens is that the next screensaver came on - it wouldnt wake up. NogDog on kindleboards got that sorted. Then I decided to try another kind of font, so I copied over again, ejected the kindle and the reading page came on (normal) but when I went into settings, instead of the settings page, I got the 'Deregister your kindle' option! Tried Cancel, and it wont disappear.

So instead of being able to restart the kindle as you say to do 'immediately' after changing the font, I have never been able to do this, other than by a holding of the wake button for a prolonged period. I guess this is ok but it might scare and panic a few people.

Hmm, now whenever I select 'settings' from the home page I get the deregister kindle message.

OK, did a wireless sync and I seem to be ok and am restarting. Fingers crossed.

So, I didnt like the font I had installed, so tried this again (third time lucky) and this time I left the wireless on while doing it. Worked like a charm!
