Installation

Download the tarball and extract then on the 2 partitions from your microSD card

Usage

Buttons

  • short press on the AUX button brings up the keyboard
  • short press on the Power button kill the application in the foreground
  • long presses bring up menus after half a second
  • the aux menu lets you search for BT keyboard and switch USB modes

SSH

There seams to be a root password by default : even with "PermitEmptyPasswords yes" on /etc/ssh/ssh_config, you can't log in with an empty password. Simply set a new password with the passwd command it a already available terminal

The PC (192.168.0.200) is configured as the DNS server. You can modify this.

Issues

  • The GSM can't be powered off with no SIM card inserted, he will persist on registering.
