No, after you install JBPatch, hyphenation is automatically enabled (only for old mobi, not kf8). You had to manually disable it if you did not want it. The default setting for minimum first and last syllable is set to 3. That works very well. If you want even more hyphenation, I suggest you change it to 2 start, 3 end. That works good for me. Why not both 2? Well, if you set both to 2 it will hyphenate undo to un- do. For me personally it is better if 4 letter words not be broke up.
Edit: oh also, there is an option to enable ragged edge. That will just like the normal Kindle behavior create left aligned non justified lines on occasions where a line would have too much white space to look good stretched out. Not sure if you meant that you like that or that you don't.
