REMAP previous page button to next page

Because of button's malfunction I have a question. Is it possible to change the functionality of the buttons on the right side of the unit?

Sure, see the my fwy keyboard (using DSMID's hack), in this post. Read the whole thread for context.

[EDIT] Oops, I meant for the K3.

I'm afraid the hack is K3 specific (K3.4 specific in fact). DSMID to the rescue?

I will ask Ixtab about creating a transparent _en overaly then... since it appears to be squirreled away in a jar somewhere. DUH.

Can you confirm your locale please... en_us? en_GB ?

Thanks

I DID find a k4 version that should do the job!!

https://code.google.com/p/kindle-cs/...ocalization-k4

: )

Ill look later. Bath time.

and perhaps dsmid will take pity if he notices this

I have Kindle form UK with UK localisation choosed during first launch.

--------

Or maybe there is the way to make a "bottleneck" to not accept so fast two taps ?! Especially when it can be noticed after waitforkey in ssh:
191 1
191 0
191 1
191 0
191 1
191 0
191 1
191 1
191 1
191 1

191 0
191 1
191 0
191 1
191 0


Theoretically, it would be the best solution. But how does it work in practice?

All the functionailty is embbeded in a jar.

in /opt/amazon/ebook/*(something)

I did hunt around for about an hour through all the other files in there, really the project above is the only chance far as I can tell.

(aside from creating a transparent overlay jar for your localisation which is why I asked, but that requires decompilation and java skills, do you have them?)

certainly not. Does duokan give easier way or the same skills needed?

1) Neither twobob nor myself support the users of open source software who are in violation of the open source license(s).
When Duokan posts their sources of the OSS they are using in accordance with the license requirements - then we might change our minds.
Until then, learn Chinese and ask on the Duokan site.

2) Repeat: "All functionality is embedded in a jar file."
Change that if you want to change the timing.
OR
Change the kernel so it is slower to pass on events.

You can shop around and find a K4 Demo unit for under $35.
That plus KUBRICK will give you a K4 with all buttons working.

A software solution to your problem does not already exist, other than the "almost solutions" suggested.
So buy a Demo, un-Demo it and e-bay your broken one for the parts (your screen is still good, you might even profit on the deal).

Do you know any user who could sell parts, like buttons?
