For the future, I'm planning to compile GNU screen and have that running in the background to have re-attachable shell sessions.

Feel free to further hack on the code!
hawhill, your KindleTERM mod is very good

I just made GNU screen running on Kindle. There are still some issues regarding term settings, but basically it works...

Telnetd issue is also solved (without repetitive enabling of usbNetwork). I have just added this line to /etc/inittab
Code:
tn:5:once:/mnt/us/usbnet/bin/busybox telnetd
As I have Kindle 3G, I also wanted the chance (in emergency) to ssh to my Linux machines even when Wifi is not available...

I really don't want to exploit free 3G connectivity for some bad intentions. But I do believe that ssh console traffic is far less consuming then intensive browsing...
Anyway, I can confim it's working too... (after some hacking)
