Font Hack not possible on my Kindle International 2.5.3 (490488060)

I installed the update from the Amazon webpage on my k2i and I am not able to install any custom fonts. I need unicode for cyrillic so I really have a problem now.

Is it right that amazon has fixed the tarbomb vulnerability to prevent any hacks.

What can i do? Is it possible to go back to an earlier firmware somehow?

With 2.5.x you have to use a different way to install unicode fonts as you're used to. I just tried NiJuLe's method (it's here in the Developer's Corner as well!!!) and it works fine on my 2i:

If there are more questions along the way this is the NiJuLe's thread.

The revised update works fine once the kindle has been restarted.

Thanks alot, dudes. The hack now works for me and I have my beloved Georgia font back. Can't believe, that amazon still does not offer unicode fonts on the reader with not modified firmware.
