If it were not for not being able to adjust contrast (which is a step back unless they are planning to add) in pdf, the DKlite seems a clear improvement because we have to read mobi the original firmware of Kindle.

I want my grayscale...
New version has an additional option for this in Aa menu.

Great .. I just upgraded and three levels of gray I think that's enough. I'm back happy.

One more question.. Does have DKLite the option to use original kindle screensavers like old Doukan ¿? (I'm a sentimental ), because the face of Jobs all the time I get bad vibes.

As far as I know currently there is not an option for this. But you can have them if you copy them to /DK_System/Lite/res/UserScreenSaver.

Greetings.
I'd like to translate into Portuguese. After that, what do I have to do? Just write new file to language folder? Or maybe restart Kindle?

name it as "portuguese.txt",copy to DK_System/lite/res/language folder, then on duokan lite press alt+sym choose portuguese under language settings. Reboot is not required.

You can use the attachment instead( It is a Google translation, therefore you should check,and correct it before using)

To translate to other languages, one can use tranlate.zip to use google translator easily.

it would be nice if you upload your language files here.
Attached Files
File Type: zip translate.zip (28.4 KB, 303 views)
File Type: txt portuguese.txt (13.6 KB, 190 views)

Once you've installed DKL, those folders should be accessible via USB. i.e it will be something like E:\DK_System\Lite\res\UserScreenSaver . Just drag and drop the images into there.

Unfortunately they will be available after ss hack. You may find them on the internet also.

Duokan team will open an English site for Duokan in the following days:
Quote:
We had the English site plan from 2 weeks before. We could collect some feedback from another side of the earth. And the discussion on DK software will be centralized. The FAQ/help can be found easier. It may take one more week to get it online.

Thanks,
DuoKan Dev team

I emailed the Duokan guys with a few questions and they answered me real quick. Maybe it's useful to you.

Questions from me:
"1) Will you release a version for the Kindle 4/Touch?
2) Is there a chance you will develop a browser as a part of the package - that will be able to download all kinds of files? (pdf, epub, etc).
3) Are you working on support for non-english latin script in epubs - such as german, scandinavian etc?

Keep up your good work!"

Answers from Duokan:

"Hello,
Just quick answers:

1.We are trying to find out a way on jailbreaking, package installation, and platform issue. So K4 support is in plan but not soon.

2. No such plan.

3.We are working on software which support most of the popular language. Some of work items are getting low priority because of limited resource. We could do some balance in latter development.

Thanks"

Thanks for the effort on translation.

I just added them into the source depot. You can get 2 more languages -Spanish and Portuguese in next realease.

DK Lite leverage some Open Source projects. We could give something back. But the team is quiet busy on building the product. It can be in plan, but no actions now.

We will build an English site for global users. Sorry for those who can not read English. Appreciate on help translating if that happens.

I'm so glad you have decided to create a channel of communication for which we use DKLite and unfortunately we do not know Chinese.

The Kindle is a great reader and DKLite (and before Old DK) much improved firmware weaknesses of the original.

But...Meanwhile Thomass remains our man in China

OK, this is odd... I installed Duokan Lite on my Kindle and it works, but I cannot see ANY of my MOBI content - only my PDFs. What did I do wrong?

Duokan Lite v. 1014.1225 (from link on first post)
Kindle firmware 3.2.1
