How to get HoshiDict
You can install the ipk from here or search it in Preware.

How to load dictionaries

Many StarDict dictionaries found on the internet are distributed as .tar.bz2 archive files. HoshiDict is currently unable to extract the archive file directly, so you'll need to manually extract the files to ".dict" format. If there is a file with the extension, "", then extract that file as well (it will then have an extension of ".dict").   To add dictionaries to your device:
  • Connect to your device via USB
  • Open the extracted directory
  • Move the extracted folder into the HoshiDict folder on the device (or move just the .ifo, .idx, and .dict file to the HoshiDict folder; HoshiDict searches the HoshiDict directory and any sub-directories for dictionaries)
  • Repeat for as many dictionaries as desired
If you have HoshiDict open when you load dictionaries on the device, you may need to restart HoshiDict for it to see the new dictionaries.
