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.
That's not enough for 5.1.*. There is an additional (inverted) store_active.png - but that's just a minor detail.

It already disappeared with 5.0.3

Does anybody know how to do a lipc conforming Java or native app?
I personally don't have first-hand experience, but it doesn't seem terribly complicated. You can take a look at the LIPC registry stuff, and a bit further. For instance, com.lab126.draw is a WAF app. It is launched through the native wafapp with a few parameters. You could launch any other native application similarly.
Code:
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.draw','command','/usr/bin/wafapp -l com.lab126.draw -c /var/local/waf/draw/');
While a Java booklet (in this case the home booklet) can be launched like this:
Code:
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','lipcId','com.lab126.booklet.home');
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','jar','/opt/amazon/ebook/booklet/home.jar');
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','supportedOrientation','U');
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','maxLoadTime','40');
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','maxGoTime','30');
INSERT INTO "properties" VALUES('com.lab126.booklet.home','defaultContext','context=0');
Needs a bit of experimentation, I guess, but absolutely feasible. Good luck
