Question Shell for e-ink device?

Does a shell for a e-ink device exists?

If not, how much will be complicated to adapt an open source shell for Android?

Are you looking for a shell or a terminal emulator?

If you're looking for a shell, Kobo devices already ship with one. Just enable telnet. (Instructions can be found on this forum.)

I haven't heard of a terminal emulator for Kobo devices. It would be possible to create one, I just don't think it's a high priority given the lack of internal keyboard and slow screen refreshes.

Thank you! Do you know if it's possible to enable SSH instead of telnet?

I haven't tried SSH, but these instructions should work:

Lucas, when you turn on usbnet in KoboLauncher, it also starts ssh server (dropbear).
