I cobbled all of this together from various places on the web, but I think the credit for the binaries goes to Paul @ MoDaCo. Nandroid before going any further! Files you'll need: QuickSSHD (Download this from the Market. $1.50). I'm just going to assume if you're still reading, you know what this is for and how to use it. It's braindead simple. I think dropbear can be installed and configured manually, but for the $1.50...meh. The rest are zipped up here: terminfo.zip, nano, bash, profile** Unzip bashnano.zip onto your SDCard. From adb shell: Install Terminfo: cp -r /sdcard/terminfo /system/etc Setup Bash: cp /sdcard/bash /system/bin/bash_new mv /system/bin/sh /system/bin/sh.old ln -s /system/bin/bash_new /system/bin/sh cp /sdcard/profile /etc Setup Nano: cp /sdcard/nano /system/bin I'm not sure if this setup will have any impact on sh scripts being used in the various ROMs, so use this at your own risk. This will give you full bash over adb, but I haven't figured out where profile goes to add terminal/color et al. for adb. Anyway, hope y'all find it useful. **profile reflects a few personal choices for aliases and colors, but you can edit to your personal taste.
