AFAIK this is the way to boot. Actually it is not a big problem since Duokan boots really fast. You can switch to native system via settings>"switch to kindle" option.

if you need Kindle to boot to native system directly either edit the config.ini file as suggested in the first post or disable Duokan with a blank DUOKAN_NO file.

I have no idea about the music player, you can send an email to DuoKan team: kindleuser@duokan.com

BTW: To switch between Kindle and Duokan and enable/disable Duokan you can use the Kual extension.

Hi everyone,

I own a Kindle keyboard (Firmware 3.4). Until a few days ago, I used an old version of Duokan lite 2012, which worked relatively fine, except for a few bugs.

So I just read about a 2013 version. I updated my Firmware to 3.4. But then, the most annoying situation happened: I can't install any version of Duokan anymore (which I need for my .epub books). I tried any hints I found on several forums (e.g. to upgrade the firmware to 3.4, then copy the df_systems folder and the three .bin's to the root and update, and so on), but nothing worked.

Do you have any idea, how to get Duokan (any version) on the v. 3.4 to run?

PS: I hope this is the right place to post such problems, as here seem to be the experts.

  1. it's said on the link below that before using the update method renaming documents folder to documents_1 may help. after the installation of the Duokan you can rename it back to documents.
  2. you may try the method2 (with emergency.sh (emergency.rar))

you may also try to install Duokan via Kual using this extension:

(extension uses the emergency.sh script. )

I tried the Kual Method too - I saw the update screen, it restarted, then as before, the original Kindle OS starts, without the boot menu. So exactly the same as before...

you may try to first
  1. uninstall the jailbreak
  2. try to use the update method
if it fails,
then you may try this:
  1. backup your all files inside documents, extension, etc.. (all files except the default ones will be erased!!)
  2. reset kindle to factory defaults
  3. try to use the regular update method to install duokan

Did you uninstall the Duokan Lite before upgrading Kindle?


OK, two other suggestions:
  1. try to install an earlier version (or even a Duokan Lite version) If you manage to install a version then update it using the method in the first post (overwriting the DK_System then restart)
  2. there is a looong way to install Duokan Lite (and hence(?) Duokan 2013) to Kindle mentioned here Actually AFAIK if you have any version of Duokan installed in your Kindle you can always switch to another using the manual update technique (overwriting the DK_System then restart)

I did uninstall everything before a new try, (which was also without success, even the described long method) - is there a way to downgrade the firmware, so one can simply copy the 2012 Duokan lite folders to the root and simply reboot into the dual boot menu, without needing to install the .bin files via update like before?

Custom fonts?

So I just installed the latest version on my K4 Non-touch, and it worked great, but one problem: I just can't setup custom English fonts.

I can delete the font files, but copying my own fonts (ttf, ttc,...) into the userfonts folder didn't work at all. They just didn't show up in Doukan.

Would greatly appreciate if anyone could help me out here. Thanks.

I just tried adding fonts to the userfonts directory. It works fine.

I added one ttf file per font, removing spaces in the file name and the "Regular" postfix (Times New Roman Regular.ttf becomes TimesNewRoman.ttf).

That worked with the few fonts I tried so far except for Fontin. If anyone has a Fontin.tff that works with Duokan I would be interested.
