I installed 4.5 onto my K4NT 4.1.0, and it said it installed fine, but how on Earth do I get into it? Every time I reboot my Kindle, it just boots straight into KindleOS, I never get the option to boot into Duokan 2012?

a little problem

when i switch off the kindle 4 NT with duokan, immediately i see a blank screen but after 30 seconds i see a page with the titles of the book that i have on my kindle.

this page is frozen so if i move the cursor nothing happens, if i switch on the kindle the same page became active
my doubt is if the frozen page could give some problem to the screen of the kindle

No permanent harm, it is a reflective display.

Perhaps a bit of ghosting or smearing after displaying the same image for a long time (months). But that will clear up by itself with normal use.

Duokan 2012 for Kindle touch in English

Hi 4 all,

One question:
Is there an english version of duokan for kindle touch in english?
If yes, where can I download it?
Because I have downloaded one version from earlier posts in this topic, and installed it, but unfortunately its in chinese.

Thanks 4 all.

From what I understood in this thread... they won´t come out with the capability to switch language until July! But for the same reason I would like to know how to uninstall Duokan. On restart my Kindle directly boots into Duokan w/o the option to choose between Kindle OS and Duokan. Supposedly there is an uninstall button on the menue page... but what does it look like?

Cheers from Germany

I have done the uninstall this way:
Deleted every duokan file from kindle, and in the settings tab on the last page i have selected the first button (in middle of the screen), and in the dialog box which came up, i have selected first button. Then in a few seconds kindle rebooted to its original firmware.

I hope, it will be an english version, because I have tried reading PDFs in duokan, and its much better than in the original kindle firmware.

I want to test on my Kindle Doukana Touch, but I have some doubts:

- Whether it is possible the time off Kindervater choose which system I want to run ie whether Doukan whether this was originally uploaded to Amazon's Kindle OS?

I care about such a choice.

Because as far as I see it on this video http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/fnVqI0Xuems Doukan immediately after installation it runs the system Doukan

It may well be somewhere you can change the sytem is set as the default (eg, manually change the settings in the configuration file - but I saw the opportunity with other older models unless Kindle 3)

Yes, you can switch between OSs via restarts. On the boot screen there is an option to choose an OS to load.( like Windows and Ubuntu on a PC)

Evidently, whatever you did to "set up the time" did not update the hardware clock.
So update the hardware clock after "setting up the time" but before rebooting.

Problem with index

I just tried the latest version of duokan 2012 (k3)2012-06-21.C11824.rtm from http://bbs.duokan.com/forum/thread-65239-1-1.html...... there have been significant improvements in speed and page cropping and smart view features.

But a constant struggle i've faced is with the index....for image based pdfs, it doesn't go the page indicated in the toc....wonder why!!!.....and I need this...esp for books with lots of pages.

Anyways I've reverted to the older Lite2011-12-08.C3283 which i find the most stable.....with no crashes at all......

What do you guys think.....will there ever be a stable version for duokan 2012?.....Please fix this bug.
