Exclamation Apps for i62 Nautilus
Yesterdeay I got my Onyx Boox i62, and since i'm advanced user I want some applications for it. Almost all of existing apps can't work with my device. However some of them work fine, e.g. ScreenSaverManager and some games. But Terminal failed to start. Is there any working alternative to the Terminal for i62? Is there a list of working apps for this device?

i think you can try ssh.

1) run dropbear.oar on the boox
2) go to browser and connect to wifi
3) use any ssh client on your computer and login on device

Thanks for reply, but I have hidden network(it doesn't broadcast SSID). And e-book doesn't connect to it. I posted the same question in my native-languague forum, and was advised to do the same things... But WiFi... And if I could connect to my home network... Can I somehow (mb using console, or just using USB cable) do this (I mean connect to my network)?

I saw Dropbear was written in SH. What can I do with this script language on my device? I mean, e.g., can I execute terminal commands? Will they be executed with root privileges?

Ok, maybe it's written in C/C++.

Does onyx support Bash? And can I connect to WiFi network using Bash/Sh?
