Run.sh

Hello All,

I just a got kobo toch (905C) and I am trying to get telnet/ftp access to it.
I've followed the guide and all seems fine, but the run.sh script does not seem to be executed at all. Can anyone here help me out, I got a feeling I'm missing something very obvious here.

Please?

steps taken:
- factory reset, get the Koboroot.tgz
- extract, edit init.d/rcS file (added "/mnt/onboard/run.sh 2&>1 >> /mnt/onboard/run.log &)
- repacked rcS, and moved it to .kobo
- created run.sh and copied it to the "root" folder (under windows, the root folder of the device when it's plugged in)

- rebooted. updating works.
At this point I hoped to some output from run.sh. Either the inittab file that is supposed to copy or the output from "echo 'test''" that I've added to the run.sh

I'm currently using this one (for the Kobo H2O, 3.12 firmware - not sure if Kobo Touch uses the same?).

It only modifies the inittab;

I thought of a better way to do it (without modifications to files that would be reset on a firmware update) but I'm too lazy to implement...
