converting comic mobi for KPW with customized margin

I installed JBPatch on my kindle paperwhite and used that patch make
the margin of reader smaller.
So the page setup -> output profile "Amazon Kindle Paperwhite"
is not the most suitable one for me.
When I convert a .cbz file to .mobi , the images do not make full use of the screen.
Then I set comic input -> Override image size, it dose not work and even make the
images not as clear as before.
Please help me!

PS: the source images are all about 2500*2000, and I override the output image size
to 750*1000. Is there something wrong?

You need to set that option and set your output profile to tablet.

I tried. But it makes the output mobi file larger than the origin .cbz file

And you also have to set the option in MOBI output to not convert images to JPEG.

Thank you for replying
I dig into the source code and found that
Code:
 SCRWIDTH, SCRHEIGHT = self.opts.output_profile.comic_screen_size

            try:
                if self.opts.comic_image_size:
                    SCRWIDTH, SCRHEIGHT = map(int, [x.strip() for x in
                        self.opts.comic_image_size.split('x')])
            except:
                pass # Ignore
the width and height should be splited by an 'x', but the chinese simplified help
string mislead me to split it by '*' instead.
All works fine with the origin paperwhite profile after I wrote that option correctly

is it necessary to jailbreak the kindle for minimizing margins, or is it enough to change settings in calibre ?
