there was a discussion on their forum on open source:
http://bbs.duokan.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=53941

It is this thread that make me discard doukan. They have too many bugs and they don't have enough developers to fix them. The worst part is, I can not make it better even though I may have that ability.

There is an open source pdf reader for kindle though:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=157047

Kindlepdfviwer is still under early development, but I think it is more promising because I can easily hack it. Now with my own hack, it is very usable for me. I use it to read alll the pdf files in my kindle.

BTW, the kindlepdfviwer will add djvu support soon. :-)

Or you can describe the problems while using "intelligent pdf view" and help Duokan improve it

If it is the problem that no spaces between the English words, that will be fixed in recent release.

The only thing I REALLY like about Duokan is the folder view. If I could have a simple hack that just adds Folder View to the stock Kindle OS, it would be perfect to me. The collection nonsense just doesn't cut it and dumbs down the device tremendously to me and my family (we're all big readers here.)

Sorry for that. I'll try to provide a mirror.

EDIT: There is no problem about registration. ( tip: use chrome and click right> choose "translate to English" )

You can update through your Kindle menu>settings>check update

You can check the progress on menu> [B] Downloading

It takes several hours for me. (not remember exactly)

I usually used this way to update ( no problem)

Can someone please explain what a folder view is and how to use it and what is a collection? Thanks.

A folder view is what you see when you are for instance using windows explorer. You see folders, and you can navigate in them. Well, Duokan has the same option. Which allows us to organize our books the way we want (per author, per genre, per whatever you wish) before copying the folders to the Kindle, Duokan will allow this "explorer view" and allow us to navigate in the folders.

A collection is a normal function offered by the Kindle to set collections of books and thus organize them. You can only put the books in a collection, which you could see as a one-level folder, but it is not a real folder organization. Many of us use the collection function to organize our book series, but are still missing the real folder view, and this is one of the very interesting function of Duokan.

@thomass: thanks a lot , you've been super helpful with your thread, it worked ! I originally had trouble installing Duokan on my K3 FW3.3 but re-jailbreaking and then unjailbreaking with the newest 0.10N version and factory resetting before installing Duokan did the trick in the end. After that, I saw that you had posted a newer version, but as the OTA indeed worked, I did not have to do much, just wait for it to be completed.
