Turn off dictionary support

Hello,

With a Jailbroken Kindle eReader is there a way to turn off dictionary support altogether? I mean, without deleting the dictionaries for good?

I am interested in any info for K3, but I do not mind any knowledge on K4S, K4B, KT and/or PW models.

I never downloaded my dictionary on my 5.

I would just delete it. then in archives - re-download it?

"without deleting the dictionaries for good? "

either way - your dictionary will be there to get again from archives.
(via 3g is easiest obviously)

That probably would work. untested. but seems likely.

On my K3 I cannot delete dictionaries. At least not from the regular home screen, the way you would delete other books.

Load an "empty" dictionary. If you need one, send a mail to mathias matting. A german author and specialist with e-readers. Send him a PN from this forum, he is member here as well, he is always willing to give his support, great guy!

Thank you for the idea. Will do.

My point is: I do not use dictionary search, and in order to save some resources I stopped indexing and would like to block as well the dictionary feature.

Ah. good to know. then as indicated above a null dictionary would suffice.

I feel certain this has been covered elsewhere so perhaps have a quick look around. : ) Document your success when it is accomplished and I will give it a go also on my 3. thanks for the tip

I created my own empty dictionary following the method described here:
http://1manfactory.com/create-your-o...uage-for-free/
The file was recognized by my Kindle, but as a regular book, not as a dictionary.

No. The null dictionary does not appear in the list of available dictionaries. Only the two default dictionaries are there.

I suspect that my error is related to how the dict.txt file looks like for an "empty" dictionary. I am working on this.

Ok. Here is the news: I can create a dictionary with one entry like
Code:
a<TAB>
This almost empty dictionary is accepted by Kindle.

But I cannot create a (valid) dictionary with zero entries. Or a null dictionary means zero entries, not one. Any ideas here?

The dictionaries are stored in /opt/amazon/dict. That folder has the two azw files and an xml configuration file. Rename the dict folder into dict.orig, and create a new dict folder, with that configuration file only. Then reboot the machine. Strangely, this hides completely the "Change Primary Dictionary" option.

Later edit: Since "removing" the two awz files from /opt/amazon/dict hides the "Change Primary Dictionary" option, it follows that renaming /opt/amazon/dict to .../dict.orig is sufficient, we do not need to have a valid .../dict folder with the .project file inside.
