Clone Kindle in my notebook

ALERT: THIS THREAD MAY CONTAIN HIGHLY NOOBISH THINGS

Sometimes I find myself thinking about something new to do in my Kindle but I don't have it with me.
This ends with me writing down my thoughts in a txt to check them later.

So, this time, I decided to ask for your help!

Being a real *nix-noob, is there a way to clone my Kindle and mount it in my notebook so that I can reach it the same way I do using SSH.
This should allow me to surf in the file-system and to send kindle-only shell commands (lipc and similar)
I really don't need to display also the Kindle screen!

Sorry to waste your time!

It would need a lot of work, I think. QEMU-arm should in principle be able to run the code. The kernel would have to be adapted accordingly. And you would likely have to invest some work in the proper configuration of QEMU (alternative drivers/dummies for USB, storage, display and input). The bootloader could probably be skipped in the startup sequence.

In short: not easily. If you want to run the software, you will have to emulate the hardware. Easy for the CPU core, not so easy for the rest.

As hawhill says: Possible but neither easy nor quick.

With the price of Kindles running about the same as two days work for a system's coder -
much cheaper to just buy one that you can sacrifice to the project you have in mind -
then do whatever on the real hardware.

??? Two hours work? Perhaps a half-hour work for a real "system's coder"... ??

When adjusted for inflation, most likely so.

Forty years ago, my peers and I where getting the equivalent of 3 Kindles per day.
I suspect that manpower costs have not gone down.

(Looking at the bill for these "happy pills" I **know** cost have not gone down!)

The point remains: Real hardware is cheaper than emulating it.
