Unhappy Removing the margins on a Kindle Touch?

Hello. I've had this Kindle Touch for a few years now and I haven't had much of a use for it until recently. I've read about all these simple hacks for removing the margins for other Kindles (simply editing the user.pref file) however that doesn't work for my device. Is there a way to accomplish this same goal on a Kindle Touch, even through jailbreaking?
Here is a picture of my current setup, with considerable margins around the page I wish to view:

Thanks in advance!

Depends on your firmware.

Kaznelson's hacks were only compiled for the PW1/2, so no luck there.

JBPatch as a whole has not been updated past firmware 5.3.2.1 -- but if that is what your Kindle is running, then I am pretty sure there is a patch for that.


Otherwise you'd have to write the patch yourself.

Try KOreader -
That might give you a better display without hacking the kindle itself.

It will certainly allow you to use a much wide selection of e-book formats, even if you can't get better margin adjustments out of it.
