Solved!

I was wandering through the the files on my Wifi when I, on chance,
found the file "/sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate". I saw that I contained
a single "0", so I tried
Code:
echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/rotate
to see if anything happened. Nothing did. But, for some reason,
pygame could suddenly see and draw to the framebuffer!

I still have to rely on 'pickel' to update the screen:
Code:
dd if=/dev/fb0 of=screen && cat screen | /usr/local/Kobo/pickel showpic
Pygame on my Wifi doesn't support png alpha, but colorkey alpha works.
Text rendering works as well, but both the text color and text background
color must be specified, otherwise it will come out as a solid rectangle.
