I'll read it to see if I understand what to do before installing anything.

I recognize that I'm not as cautious with my android phone

You should use an appropriate font (Arial, etc) to see this Hebrew letters correctly.

I already tested this, you'll see Hebrew letters, but they're displayed in LTR order. It's the same with Arabic.

RTL support is broken in Duokan 2012.

Well, I've already inserted the Hebrew font into user fonts...

Here some images, if somebody wants to see:
The squares supposed to be Hebrew letters:


And this is the ePub. The line break is OK, but the words are from the end to the begining.

Angry My K3 always recoganized as a RNDIS device

Hi thomass,

I got a problem after update to Duokan2012 R1. My model is K3 3G+WIFI.
After updated, my k3 is always recoganized as RNDIS device when I plug in the usb wire. After some try, I found that it's caused by '~usbNetwork' automatically started when the device starts up.
For now I can only switch to default OS, and manually fire the '~usbNetwork' command to switch it off to let the device recoganized as a mass storage device.

Do you have any idea of the resolution to this issue? Any setting changes?

Thanks in advance.

Your case seem to be related with usbnetwork hack. Make sure that you don't have a file named 'auto' instead of 'DISABLED_auto' in your usbnet folder.

Thanks thomass, you're a genius! It was indeed caused by the 'auto' file.
I found the 'DISABLED_autl' too, so I just deleted the 'auto' file. It's working fine now.

Thanks a million!

Do you think that the user can customize the hyphenation in Duokan 2012?

great

Installed it successfully on my Kindle non-touch!
Wasn't that much of a hassle, except having to leave precious linux and use windows to install (strictly followed the tutorial )
I just tried it for a couple of minutes, but i have to admit:
It's really, really, really great for reading pdf (did I emphasize that enough?) in comparison to the stock pdf-reader.
First, the Smart Layout option (for pdfs without many tables or graphics) - and the pdf looks instantly like one I converted before in a kindle-friendly format.
The other options, though still in chinese, are even better when it comes to more complex pdfs (like auto-crop of margins or even manually defining them).
Now I can finally read pdf lectures from university on my kindle, albeit in landscape mode.
Mobi and epub did work without problems, as far as I could see.
Still, there were some crashes, some chinese here and there and of course button assignments for any menu and option possible, that obviously isn't needed in the non-touch version anymore.
But given that it is the first non-touch version, I'm really impressed.

Sorry, that this was more of a review than an install experience, but I didn't expect that much when I installed it.
Maybe this post was helpful for those who are still unsure to try it
