I tried that with an epub ( ) and after a reboot contents of DK Documents showed up.
But I get an "Open failed".

Going to try avidworm's suggestion now.

AVIDWORM YOU ROCK!!!!! *O*

I have an epub open *now*

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. If you cannot read the file name, mouse over should give you the precise version for your Kindle).
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


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).

Is that right?
yes also the particular bin for your kindle (you need to get the right folder) can be recognised automatically so you don't need to remember which bin is for your kindle. i.e. i know my bins are in kindle3 folder so i just copy those bin files to root and the right bin gets chosen when you update

O.K. I have installed and restarted several times, and I get a very quick flash screen with 3 choices -- Maybe just 2. #1 is in Chinese only -- this is Duokan: #2 has the word Kindle surrounded by Chinese. I have to press the number key on my Kindle to get into Duokan. I'm in now. If I am not back by dark, inform the proper authorities.

Also, I have numbers, not letter in my version. I had to go to Menu, 0 for settings (a little wrench symbol) page 3, select 3, then select 3 again for English. Judicious use of Google translate got me there.

I have Kindle2i

unbe-fuggin-lievable! I got reflowable pdf! Select auto layout from the font menu Aa, then use that key again to get a menu to select type size. I am reading Wordsworth in the Oxford Book of American Poetry, a book that was useless in pdf on a Kindle2 screen. There are a million setting in there!

What a trip.

Done

2 times: "Conecting..." -> "Connecting..."
1 time: "Conectting.." should be "Connecting..."



And I can not get wireless to work
It works on the default firmware but the duokan fw always shows me a "failed"

The confusion was with the letters (D, J, etc.) I don't have letters in my Duokan menus, I have numbers and symbols. Once you get it set to English, there's no problem.

Everything else worked for install.

Edit: Duoh! Of course -- Kindle 2 has a number row on the keyboard, and Kindle 3 does not, thus the letters on the Kindle 3 menu.
