Kindleberry ?

Hi all,

I found some info on the web a few months ago, about using a kindle as a raspberry pi screen,

and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this ?

I have a kindle dx graphite, however have mostly found tutorials for other kindle models (kindle3, 4, paperwhite, ...), would this also work on the DX(G)?

Another question, is what can you do with a kindleberry? what kind of programs could you run?
(what interests me, is the possibility to use mouse/keyboard, so are there text editors on rapberry pi's ? (I've nevre used one...))

(Another question, would this also work with other e-readers, like onyx M96 (It seems to work on other andoid tablets, does anyone know if usb tethering is enabled on the M96?), or Sony DPT-S1?)

Thanks in advance !!!

PS: Something like this looks quite cool !!!

(but I haven't found a tutorial for the dx, would it be the same steps as for the kinlde 3?)


PPS: has anyone tried this ?: http://www.adafruit.com/product/1303

If the Kindle acts merely as a screen for your Raspberry Pi, then you could run anything.

The Raspberry Pi is not a device with a locked OS and in fact it usually isn't shipped with any particular OS preinstalled. You can load the OS you want on an SD card (they recommend 8Gb of class 4) and use it on your Raspberry Pi. A popular solution is to go with a Linux distro such has Raspbian.

Raspberry Pies are awesome little devices! I'm working on a project centered around it at the moment and I'm loving it.

Hype, thanks for your answers !!!

yes, the pi's do look really cool !

My main interest is to use a pi with a kindle dx (no tutorial found as of yet ...), having the ability to use a text editor and keyboard/mouse combo ...

Moved to the Developer's forum, where you're much more likely to get an answer to this type of question.
