Z2 Shell, a shell environment for the the Zipit 2
This is a shell environment for the Zipit 2. The stock Z2 firmware does not come with any type of accessible shell. This software allows one to boot the Z2 with this software into a full shell with terminal, SSH server running, SSH client, netcat, and a SCP client. As an extra note, it may be beneficial for you to use the latest OpenEmbedded image for running a shell environment instead of the files listed here.
The latest release is available here.
Extract everything contained in the archive to the root directory of your SD card. Configure the "etc/wpa_supplicant.conf" to suite your wireless settings. Once everything is saved, insert the SD card into your Z2 while it is turned completely off, then power on the device.
If this is the first time you've booted into the shell, the Z2 will take several minutes to generate a SSH key. Once that is completeed, you will be dropped into a shell.
All basic shell commands are there: "ls", "cd", etc.
If you want to shutdown the Z2, enter "poweroff". If you'd like to reboot the device, enter "reboot".
The SSH client is accessible via "dbclient". Netcat is run via "netcat", and the SCP client's command is "scp".
The keyboard driver in this release is as follows:
