I don't see why; this is something that the standard Kindle firmware supports.

Heads up:

I had duokan installed in my PW. One day i decided to uninstall it, through the proper button within the Duokan OS.

When the kindle tried to boot up again at the end of the process, the device died... Something went really wrong under the hood. Now its always trying to update and getting error 03. Can't connect via usb. My onliy option is to tear ir apart and go through serial process. Meanwhile, I have an expensive and rectangular freesbie.

My advice, stay away from that evil OS. If you want alternative OS, try Koreader, way better, friendlier and harmless!

Just my two cents...

One of the most common complaints we seem to hear against Duokan is "it worked fine, until I tried uninstalling it. Then the device got bricked/other disaster."
I don't know how the Duokan project managed to screw that up so badly... pity we don't know how their system works, or we could have fixed it for them.

KOReader is much less invasive, and for that reason alone I would recommend it.

Also keep in mind, you have learned why it is a good idea to install the Rescue Pack and Cowards Rescue Pack. It allows you to drop to diags mode with SSH access during early boot, and has saved many devices.

It's really a good idea, but didnt work for me. I had installed both packs, but duokan screwed things really bad, so my device couldnt be saved!
Please, keep away from duokan!

Not our product, ask at the Duokan Project support site, part of MiUi.com.

This is not the place to ask.
As a brand new member, you can't even guess how much this isn't the place to ask.
