I suggest looking at the properties of the old file, the one that gets renamed to *.bak, and make the new file match those permissions. The instructions at that part are not clear, but what I posted should work.

When you are finished, you should change the paths back to their original settings. He does not say this, but that area should not be left R/W. I think it should be mounted read only.

Well, the guide is missing something. Native Kindle Fire users are all complaining that it cannot change dictionaries. It seems to me a rooted device should handle it. Need more file info.
