[Solved] Any way to display custom graphics on the Kobo Wifi?

I've been trying lately to display custom images on my Kobo Wifi. I've had no luck
finding any documentation for the Wifi's imx357 and e-ink on freescale's website,
and pygame fails to recognize the framebuffer. So I tried converting an image to the
rgb565 format with ffmpeg:
Code:
ffmpeg -vcodec png -i image.png -vcodec rawvideo -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565 image.raw
and displaying it with the program "pickel" found on the Wifi, but the image it displays
is distorted, as seen here (original image is shown in top-left corner):


Anyone have any suggestions? I can't stand having my Wifi hacked and yet not being
able to draw to the screen! Plus I need something to do until I can get my hands on a
Glo or a Paperwhite.
