No one's created a new OS for any of the Kobo's. Are you thinking Android?

For compiling, I've used an arm Linux cross compiler on Ubuntu.

To install the compiler:
Code:
sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi
Then you can compile your code with the arm-linux-gnueabi-* tools.
Code:
arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc code.c

Do you have any tips and tricks for developing on the Kobo? I kind of want to write a terminal emulator to type commands for terminal in on the actual device

I've been thinking for a while now that I'd like to have a terminal emulator on my Glo, but I have no idea how one goes about writing a terminal emulator. :P

I don't think I have any tips or tricks, though if you have any specific questions I'll try to help.
