Why do you want to use the Font Hack in the first place?
FW 5.9.4+ natively support adding extra fonts to /fonts folder in the visible USB root.
Tried this just now, they still don't appear in the Aa Menu. How are you supposed to change a book's font after transferring new fonts over to /fonts?

They should appear in Aa menu under “Custom” or “User” submenu.
Fonts should be in ttf (or something else, there is a Readme file).
Maybe you should also restart

I've followed the steps you outlined here.

When I click on "Custom", no submenu opens, it does like a 1 second refresh and then nothing changes, it stays on the exact same screen:

And within the Aa menu after I click on "Font & Page Settings" all that appears are the default fonts:

Strange.
Did you just put ttf files inside fonts folder? They shouldn’t be in separate folders.
Did you restart Kindle after font trasferring?

I've done exactly this, yes. I have no idea why that "Custom:New font name" doesn't appear in my Aa menu. Since I'm running FW v5.12.4 I should be able to see something like this:

But I don't. Any thoughts on this, anyone?

What is your book format?
Try .mobi, .azw3, .kfx
On my PW3 5.9.7 at least .azw3 has custom fonts.

Have you tested with different books? It doesn't work consistently for all books (in my experience anyway).

Maybe there is a problem with the fonts?
Try putting something very common like Calibri or DejaVu Sans
