Thanks @ihor.

I've created my own set of font sizes (19,20 ... 29,31). Had trouble copying files to Kindle with WinSCP (from Kindle worked),so for extra noob friendliness maybe it should be mentioned somewhere in this topic (@ixtab: I know, I know ... "this is the developers subforum...") that you have to first make root writable by running "mntroot rw"

will... not... feed...

Spoiler:

JSWolf does not own a Kindle Touch (or any Kindle, for that matter). He just enjoys asking questions with the sole purpose to provoke people. Look up his posts in the Kindle forums and you'll see for yourself.

Yes, it is interesting for me, anyway. But it can consume too much time on evenings, which I can spend on my wife and a child, instead of studying linux scripts.

You mean you didn't see the notice on your registration form here about how you are expected to surrender all thoughts of having a personal life?

Just set the wife and child up as a once a week cron job.
Other members here will probably be glad to share their suggested crontab entries.

Hmm...
I don't know what the above translates to in en_Windows.

Sigh... So I spent my day trying to reduce my smoking habit to near nill and drinking decaf.. Oh and digging through docs, emails and just generally not getting this installer finished.

mañana

In other news there is a definite smell of dirty laundry, hopefully that will have all cleared up by the morning.

*throw rocks now* I'll stand still and everything.

thanks.

Back to my question that's not yet had an answer.

Can this font size menu hack be done for the Kindle Touch using the latest firmware?

Try it, let us know.
If you have problems, describe what you have done and the problem encountered.

@wolfdude Okay. "Thumb in the air" feeling for the wind.... I would hazard a complete guess of - probably not as-is... but I could be wrong

Bereft of a Touch device that is my best guess.

I don't have a Kindle Touch. So I cannot experiment with it. The Kindle Touch in question belongs to someone else. I cannot go experimenting on it. It has to be a know working modification.
