More details in a Readme_eng.txt file...


PS: Fonthack for 5.3.4 and 5.3.6 firmware.
update_fonthack_0.3_pw_534.zip
update_fonthack_0.3_pw_536.zip

Could you make this fonts & margins hack use editable (plaintext) preferences file, like the Enhanced fontfix for K3/K4 ?

For К4 ihor edited a java-code manually.
For PW it's much more difficult...

Hi kaznelson

By "English (United Kingdom)" interface, do you mean a PW set to GB english, or is there something I am missing (I am in Australia and bought the PW from Amazon US)

Thanks

Yes, you have to set "Settings" -> "Device Options" -> "Language and Dictionaries" -> "Language" of your device to "English (United Kingdom)".

Not yet, maybe never.
You may have to "upgrade" to a less recent Amazon firmware.

OR,
Note that ixtab mentioned he was going to wait for 5.3.7 to be released and wait for those things to happen.

From the first post of this thread. The uninstaller works for all previous versions, too.

Not yet.
Go for it and give us your report back.

Don't expect too much, coding JBpatch for each firmware release is a major effort and you should not be expecting support on the first day of a new firmware release (and you have been a member here long enough to know that yourself, although other readers may not).

Oh, boy, lab126 still can't count. 5.3.6 == Kpw, 5.3.7 == KT

.... actually, I'm leaning towards a "don't expect support for new firmwares at all".

I've posted the reasons multiple times, and seeing how each new firmware is causing more problems than it solves... it's just not worth the effort.
