Question How to make the store button useful?

I have absolutely no need for the store button on the standard KT interface. I don't shop in the Amazon store and I haven't even registered my KT.

So how can I repurpose the store button?

A simple first step is to replace the store button image with one that is less ugly. Copy the attached image to your kindle and type this:
Code:
mntroot rw; cp space_invader.png /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/assets/search_bar/store.png ; mntroot ro
Afterwards you have to restart cvm or just the complete Kindle and you'll get a stylish little glyph where the ugly shopping cart was.

But that doesn't change its function yet. Does anybody know how to do this?

I'm currently still on 5.0.4 so I guess using nativeBridge.dbgCmd would have been an option but as we all know this will disappear with 5.1.1.

As far as I have come I think we have to inject an application into the lipc event system on the KT. If you have a html/js application on the KT that's probably easy as you can use wafapp to load that app. But there is no possibility to call a Java or native app from that web application?

Does anybody know how to do a lipc conforming Java or native app?
