And yeah, you always gotta expect some bugs. I know it was a big release, meaning a lot of new stuff added/removed/tweaked/updated, and that often makes for even more potential issues.

I am unable to find " auto page flip" menu . Where has it gone ?
It was a very useful feature .

Happy new year.

When you install the italian file - are there still some Chinese terms left - for example some headings in the settings menu?

Good news!!...DK 2012 R1 version has been released and it works in K4 NT.

the bad news (for me at least) is that the installation method is complex and is explained in Chinese so I do not dare...

Thanks,
Do you mean that the installation does not work with Vista?
I understand the steps but I worried about not having a plan B in case my k4 becomes a Brick, and not to mention that I use vista...

Hi!
I successfully installed Doukan 2012 on my Kindle 4NT.
The main reason why I wanted to try Doukan is the (supposedly) Hebrew support.
As for now, in the book's name the Hebrew letters are'nt shown at all (It shows squares instead) and inside the ePub the RTL isn't working.

Thanks for your hard work!

What OS do you use 7, vista, xp?.

I recognize that from the point 5 I have no clear the steps..."present this card to configure the IP address" and i am not sure if the chinese images can help me.

I am a novice in these things. I hope that later they simplify the method...

The RTL problem already mentioned in en.duokan.com I hope they could fix this.

MR user Matan created a custom fbKindle build for Kindle 3s and might be able to create a version for K4s, too, if there was demand for it.

Since neither proper dictionary lookup nor support for RTL languages such as Arabic and Hebrew works, I'm going to downgrade to Duokan Lite, which at least had working RTL support.

If fbKindle had a smart PDF reflow option, I'd immediately uninstall Duokan, because it becomes more and more bloated in each version without adding useful features.
