Do you think that I will try to delete linkjail without risk? I don't know what did the owner does with jailbreaks, but she updated from 3.1 to 3.3 without 3.2.1 I think

@Kindlevarazs: If the jailbreak is not installed, deleting the linkjail folder won't do a thing. If it is, that'll just disable it.

It'll, at best, fail, and at worst, force you to start your Kindle in recovery mode to delete the offending update.

Thank you very much, after that I have succeded to install all other mentioned hacks.

One more question: how do you think is it possibly to use/modify apps based on LaunchPad start to work without it? (for example CoolReader or Chess could be start from Home screen?) Is it interesting for later K4 use (if jailbreak will be working).

@Kindlevarazs: You can't, they're new, standalone apps, not part/based on/hooked in the framework. Launchpad is the cleanest, easiest way to achieve that (someone would have come up with something better if that wasn't the case ).

New Font Hack Not working

I am trying to add the Georgia 2 font on my K3g and can't seem to get it to work. Here are the steps I took:
1. Download and installed the hacks without difficulty. Works fine. I can see the new fonts from the hack.
2.Download the Georgia2 font.
3. Renamed it Georgia2_Regular.ttf
4. Replace all the fonts in the links/fonts folder with the Georgia 2 font
5. unlink from computer and restart Kindle.

Still can't see the Georgia 2 font on my Kindle

What am I missing, please?

The default fonts installed by the hack are the usual non-cjk unicode fonts (Droid Sans, Droid Serif & DejaVu Sans Mono), with the addition of the CJK-aware Droid Fallback if you're on FW 3.x. You'll find a bunch of other prepackaged, ready to use, font sets here, and in the next few replies.

You'll have to restart your Kindle in order to properly take your new fonts into account.

Sans_Italic.ttf: May be used alongside Sans_Regular or Sans_Bold somewhere ^^
Sans_BoldItalic.ttf: Used in the book list, for the collection names

Serif_*.ttf: Used in the reader, that's the font family your books will be rendered with.
Serif_Bold.ttf: Used in the book & collection browser for the book title & author. (NOTE: For these purposes, Serif_Regular is used instead on FW 3.x)

Mono_*.ttf: AFAICT, nowehere except in the browser, but I may be mistaken. (Might be used in the reader when you're feeding it a raw txt file or some raw html files, depending on styling).

And since v3.8.N, on FW 3.x:

CJK.ttf: Used for Chinese/Japanese/Korean scripts.
I18N.ttf: Last fallback for non-latin & non-cjk scripts.
Which tells us:

1. Okay.
2. Sure.
3. Nope, wrong (hint: I imagine you'll want to use it as the Serif_* family).
4. Definitely wrong, *never* delete anything in there, always *overwrite* the parts of the 3 switchable font sets (Serif_*, Sans_*, Mono_*) you want to change.
5. Yep.

I'm not sure if I'm too much of a newbie, but I have no idea what *overwrite* the parts of the 3 switchable font sets (Serif_*, Sans_*, Mono_*) you want to change.
Could you explain in different terms please?

@harpangel36: Basically, don't remove stuff manually in the fonts folder, and if your OS asks you to overwrite some files when copying your new fonts, say 'yes' .
