Thanks for the great writeup, euphy. Getting all the Kobo's activity is exactly why I want to setup a serial connection. Someday I'm planning on trying to port Android to the Kobo.

There seems to be two serial ports on my Glo. One is at the upper-right corner of the board and labeled "J1", and the other is near the bottom-left and marked "J2".

I honestly have no soldering experience. Would it be best to get a little experience before tackling my Glo? I'm assuming there's a least a little risk involved in soldering a serial connection on the Kobo.

Thanks again.
