Smile Kindle DX and K3 Tricks v.1.3

Greetings everyone!

After about a year since the last version, I'm excited to announce the release of version 1.3 of my free ebook of Kindle DX & K3 tricks. It can be read directly on the web page or downloaded in the Mobi format for Kindle and EPub for other readers.

This version could not have happened without amazing advances the developers have made on hacks this past year, and without the copious feedback of many readers. Thank you all!

Special thanks (wow) (in alphabetical order) to NiLuJe, OrangeType, Yifan Lu and other developers.

This project can never be complete, of course, as so much is happening on the device.

Cross-announcing on MR and KB, where a number of people have also contributed to this version.

Gratefully taking suggestions for the next one.
Thanks to all for sharing.

Wishing you all a beautiful day,


Andy

It rocks.

But how comes the CoolReader /fbKindle is not mentioned?
It is quite useful for those who want to read their epubs, fb2s or chms .

Hi MickeyMark, hi ELink,
Thank you for your encouragements!

>But how comes the CoolReader /fbReader is not mentioned?

Exactly. This kind of feedback will help the next version, because there's loads of things I don't know about. Like the things you just mentioned, which I'll now go and learn about in the next week. Everyone uses their reader differently.

Thank you very much and please everyone bring on the bugs / holes you may find in the page.
