Great! Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner, but here's a small python script
that creates an image with the text "Hello" in the upper-left corner and then calls
the Kobo's "show_pic" command to display the image. If that script works, then
creating the display you want won't be hard at all.
Ok, so on the script-side, not too much to adapt.

But can I use the Kobo Wifi files to root my Glo ?


So, I have telnet access on my Glo now.
I know that the resolution is bigger and fbset command give me this :
mode "1024x758-0"
# D: 0.000 MHz, H: 0.000 kHz, V: 0.000 Hz
geometry 1024 758 1024 1536 16
timings 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
accel false
rgba 5/11,6/5,5/0,0/0

I used the files of the Kobo Touch and it works !
But it appears like that :

So the only thing to adapt is the size of the screen and images emplacements inside ?
