HTC Hero has no telnetd?


Since my HTC Hero has no QWERTY keyboard, accessing the local console with on screen keyboard is not too efficient. I thought there maybe some apps allowing remote accessing the Android like telnetd or sshd, but they cant be found in the Market.

Google then told me there is actually a telnetd at /system/bin of the phone, and that was actually a common way to "root" it. But unfortunate such binary was not found on my Hero...

Seems that I cannot find other people complain about this one the web... Did I miss something? Or is it removed by HTC or the service provider in order to prevent user from gaining root access? (I am using Smartone-Vodafone service in HK...)

Hello Android~


Have been damn busy recently, didn't update here for quite a long time...

Anyway, I just bought a HTC Hero, which is Android-based. This is my second "smart" phone, my last one was Motorola E680i, which was the first Linux-based phone in the market. You probably see my interests here, yeah, open source rocks~~~

Like other new born babies, Android is not yet perfect, but I see the bright future of it. Already downloaded the SDK and reading the documentations, looking forward to my first Android apps :) Any nice idea?
