I would like to see a slimmed down image for the Glo with just FBreader, like it boots up and loads FBreader and that's it.

@PhantomWiggler: Thanks for ready-made image for Kobo mini. Saved me time and effort.

Can someone comment on how stable this runs on their Kobo? Also, in terms of battery consumption, how does it score compared to Kobo's own Linux?

USB-OTG is a must, now that XCSoar has it.

Anyone wants to bring Arch Linux on Kobos?

So has anybody had any success in porting newer Linux kernels to the kobo? I'm an absolute beginner to Linux, but by googling I found out there was a 3 and even a 4 since this thread was created. (Forgive my ignorance if there are hardware limitations that make it impossible to distribute them to the Kobo!)

Anyway, I recently dug out my Kobo N905b, saw this thread and decided I wanted to do this. I think the N905b has an internal sd card, right?

Is there anything you would do differently in 2016 that I could try? Is anybody still working on this?

HAVE A QUESTION ON ttymcx1 and ttymcx2

Dear all:
I have the KOBO Touch running Debian Linux, everything looks good BUT I can not manage to use /dev/ttymcx1 nor /dev/ttymcx2.
stty works, I can set all the parameters but once /dev/ttymcx1 receives data, the system hangs, /dev/ttymcx2 does not work at all...
I wonder if those ports are used by other hardware, or I am missing some piece in the puzzle.
BTW, /dev/ttymcx0 runs happy as debug console, also USB eth gadget works fine as well as WiFi...
Any help will be very appreciated.
