Are you sure the 24 Hrs mode works? I tried to make it work but it is still at 12:48AM.

Do you have to press something or change a setting somewhere to make it work to make it 24Hrs (I have 3.1 installed with Yifan Lu jailbreak)

Hi Sir Alex and dsmid - great stuff, thanks!
Attaching a polish script. (rename to keyboard_european.txt to work)
Just a quick idea - wouldn't it be better to do a long press instead of double pressing a character?
With this idea, long pressing the dot would be great for comma, for example.

Cheers

I haven't tried SYM in the web browser yet (I will), but I believe that will work. It's just the european mode, so replacing, say, 'oO' with 'ó'.

Sir Alex,
thanks for the update to 3.3! The only thing that doesn't seem to work is 24h time format. Is there some setting in config.txt that must be set to make this work?

Thanks.

Arrow Newer version

Hi all!

There is a newer version for this hack, which can be found on Sir Alex's site.
I upload it here, to be easy to download.

It's compatible with Kindle 3.3 and it implements the timeout feature, and works even better for me.

(I haven't done anything with this hack! It's just copyed here from the original russian website.)

@hzsolt Does the 24 hour time format work for you after applying this hack?

No, I think that function was removed due to better compatibility.
It has even no entry in the config file, but I dont mind it.

Physical Keyboard hack - never supports 24h format.
It's done in Localization hack (loc_ru, loc_de, loc_es... etc) or Virtual keyboard localization hack (keybru)

Does the hack work for the kindle 4 (non-touch)?
I'd be interested in adding greek characters to the virtual keyboard.

While I can't say anything about the hack itself - i.e. whether its function principles still apply - the answer for now would be "no" anyway: There's no jailbreak yet.

Need help to install

Hi,

I am in need of a bit of help to get this hack installed. It is failing upon installation with code U007.

I am not certain, whether jailbreak was successful, either. I am firmware 3.3 with a European (B00A) WIFI+3G Kindle 3. I tried to apply jailbreak version 0.10.N.k3gb, which failed with code U004. But I read elsewhere that this is normal.

After reboot, I tried to install update_physkeyb_0.08_k3gb_install.bin, which failed with U007.

Can somebody enlighten me what I am doing wrong?

Thanxx, Mixx
