Use your Kindle as VNC viewer
I could mod my Kindle so I can now use it as screen for the Raspberry Pi.
This is what I did with my Kindle 4 NT:
- Install USBNetwork
- Get KindleVNC viewer
- Connect your Kindle via USB to a GNU/Linux computer. ssh into it like so (the root password doesn’t exist, you can type in anything):
sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.15.2
- Start the vnc viewer with
/mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.15.2:0 &
- Here is a script to autostart the viewer:
sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.15.2 sudo x11vnc -scale 800x600 -display :0 & sleep 8 sshpass -p asdf ssh firstname.lastname@example.org /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.15.2:0 &
Do not forget to enable USBNetworking, otherwise it won’t work. You can do so with KUAL.
