[Kindle Touch] No Image viewer and pdf viewer with white margins

Hi to all, I have registered to the forum because I'm a new entry in the Kindle world and I'm already disappointed.
Yesterday I have received the Kindle Touch and I've discovered (my fault not having investigated better before buying it) that only in this model the Image viewer have been removed: the only way to view comics is to convert them in pdf or mobi files. So I have downloaded e-nki and I've saved my first pdf: when I opened it in the Kindle I realize that there are white margins above and below the page making it smaller and difficult to read the baloons.

Hoping that the recent jailbreak will get back the image viewer is there any app that will show the pdf at full screen or any possible hack for the default app to remove the white margins?

many thanks to who will reply and happy new year

I'm also looking for a way to minimize margins, but couldn't find a solution yet. It seems possible, since it always shows full screen advertisements...

With 5.1, Amazon included a full screen image viewer, at last...

Put some pictures in /mnt/us/images/ and run this in your ssh terminal:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.appmgrd start app://com.lab126.booklet.imageviewer

Here it is :

Moreover, after creating the images directory, you should have an images link at the main menu of the device, which will also launch this image viewer.

Good morning!
I tried this image viewer, but I have two questions:
- is there a way of changing image without going back to the image list?
- is there a way of removing the "images" collection in kindle home?
