cheers
I got chinese too
And damn, I suck at chinese

Hmm during reboot I get a page in chinese and then my kindle goes back to the normal kindle version. Looks like it did not work as expected

The 1st pages seems to show Q and W as specific keys. Could it be to turn duokan on/off?

need to watch when rebooting for screen which gives Q or W option - keep an eye since it goes quick!

I assume that you are telling us how to set the language to English, yes?

Could you please explain it so that the slower amongst us can understand?

Also, with this new English version, will I get a boot screen after install, so that I can use the default Kindle software after Duokan install.

Edit: I just saw your last post -- is Q or W Duokan?

Your help is much appreciated!

means go to the setting screen (which you can now access by pressing the space bar) then got to page 3, choose the D line then from there choose the C option.

not sure what your 2nd question means?

Hi Avidworm,

We are writing at the same time. I was wondering, at start up, which letter (Q or W) gets me into Duokan.

Nevermind

Thanks.

= wifi connecting
= insert password
Text shown "conectting".

That should be "connecting"

2 problems:
1. I can not get wifi to connect to my router.
2. How do I get books back that are on my kindle. My main menu is empty.

So, we have:

How to install the system:
1. Extract DK_System, DK_Documents and DK_Pictures to the Kindle root directory.
If you have a previously installed version of Duokan installed, replace DK_System with the new DK_System folder;
Then continue with these steps).

2. If your Kindle2 is an international version, "Update_DK_k2i.bin" file to the Kindle root directory (Note: here is a copy of the appropriate File, not the whole folder. Bin files are identified in English in their respective folders).
If your Kindle2 is a U.S. version, copy "Update_DK_k2.bin" file to the Kindle root directory

Unplug Kindle from U.S.B. and Update: Menu/settings/menu/update

For Kindle 3:

Restart. Select Q to boot into Duokan.

Language setting:

After it starts up press
MENU
Go to J (wording is "settings" in Chinese ) and activate it.
Go to the 3rd page ( > > > ).
Choose D (wording is "language" in Chinese ) and activate it.
Choose C (a is traditional, b is simplified, c is English, d Japanese and e Korean).

got to page 3 at line F Support Old Sytem click Yes
to get books already on kindle

Restart. Select Q to boot into Duokan.

If you have Kindle 2:

After it starts up press
MENU.
Select #1 for Duokan.

Select #0 for settings (a little wrench symbol)
go to page 3, select 3, then select 2 for English. (you have 5 choices, which are:
0. Simplified Chinese
1. Traditional Chinese
2. English
3. Japanese
4. Korean

Go again to menu, page 3,
select #5 Support Old System, select Yes
to get books already on kindle

For Kindle DX
Select option 0 on the menu (Wrench) (or use Alt+Sym for settings)
Go to PAGE 2 (Not 3)
Select Option G (D )
Select option 2 English

Last edited by montalex; 11-22-2010 at 05:50 PM. Reason: DX menu is different!
