Just to complete the information: where should it be placed?

Gosh,
I thought that I jailbroke my KT, but I realized that I didn't. I did it and I saw a new book titled "You are jailbroken." on the device. but the problem is that I cannot see the path "/opt/amazon/ebook/lib" when logging the device into PC. I'm using Windows7. what shall I do?
Thanks in advance.

Install usbnetwork, and log in to the device via ssh / copy the files there via scp.

See http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...USB_Networking

In case you don't understand what this is all about, I strongly recommend not to do it. Rather, learn about Unix/Linux and its command-line tools first, then come back.

Don't blindly tamper around or try out things, because there is no safety net, and you'd almost certainly screw up somewhere -- up to the point of potentially bricking your device.

seaniko7 has kindly incorporated the MobiReader-impl.jar file in his updated installer. an uninstaller is also included. this is the easiest way to do it.

Thanks for that! I was worried I was going to have to try to actually hack it. It works great!

@yifanlu: what is to be done to localise your gui launcher. Have my KT germanized and would like to modify the launcher as well.

Hmm... Just edit the menu.json stuff of the extensions you installed... Or is having the label "Launcher" in English the one issue you have? Then you can recompile it and install .jar to /opt/amazon/ebook/lib.

However I support this idea - I was thinking the same

I made it easy to localize, but I haven't implemented localization features, if that makes sense. I stored all the strings (so far, just the word "Launcher") in a separate class like how the Kindle 3 worked. You just need to modify the class and recompile the launcher. You also need the patched home menu class from my KindleLauncher.jar file

if localisation, then the whole stuff. I am not so familiar yet with json and these things, have to look into. But it is only some words, so is there anybody who could support in localisation. Would provide the correct "wording".
Would be for the actual launcher with usbnetwork and screen orientation in german.

@JustAMan I know what you think, probably we can convince ixtab to include in the localisation ;-)

diba,
The way Launcher is built its impossible to localize anything except the word "Launcher" for sure. That's because Launcher itself doesn't contain any other strings...

We could only create locale-aware extensions, which could be quite easy (especially if yifanlu would got my suggestion implemented in his Launcher... btw, yifanlu, I'm quite happy with this json-stdout stuff, and making it locale-aware is just a piece of cake, which cannot be said for simple json extensions... why don't you integrate it, man? )

I have lots of plans, but the Launcher is not high in my priorities right now. When I have the time, I promise launcher 2.0 will contain localizations & stuff.

is it really so diffcult to change "landscape" and portrait to Hochformat and Querformat? How easy it was to do such things on K3 with Sir Alex tools ....

It isn't hard at all.
Open extensions/orientation/menu.json and edit those strings I mean the ones that are immediately after "name" stuff. They are what's being displayed.
