Topic: Broken Bend Switch Classic Chumby

I have a classic chumby which i am trying to install into the wall at my office so that i can use it for music, and pandora. While taking it apart the bend switch no longer seems to be working. I tried to attach longer wires to it so that it would be easier to access. I saw other forums saying to press in the upper left corner to get to the control panel, but this does not work either. Can someone please help me out?

You need to create a small file for the "upper left" button to work.

See this post.

thanks again

Well, you can set up a USB dongle with a script to do the same thing.  Upon boot, the device looks for a script on the top level of a USB stick, called "debugchumby".  What you'd do is make a script with the key command from that page:

echo 0,0 > /psp/hotspot

Note that you'll have to use an editor that generates UNIX-style line endings (ie linefeeds, not carriage returns).

If you add the line "start_sshd", you'll also get SSH turned on.
