Kindle VNC

Sun Aug 07, 2016 12:24 am

Hi all

I've read that it's possible to connect a Kindle to a Raspberry Pi using vnc, but how many models are exactly supported? I would like to use a Kindle Paperwhite 3 or the basic Kindle 2016

and another important question: is it possible to do the whole process only from the pi (if touchscreen on the kindle is not working at all and no physical buttons available)?

thanks :D raspberry rulz

Without a working Kindle you have no way to set up a SSH / VNC Client on the Kindle !!!

everything's working except for the touch capability, so isn't it possible to control it from the pi?
