Quick Start

In order to SSH into your device, you’ll need a GitHub account with SSH keys. See this GitHub article for getting your account setup with SSH keys.

  • Enable SSH in your device’s settings

  • Enter your GitHub username in the device’s settings

  • Connect to your device

    • Username: root (comma two) or comma (comma three)

    • Port: 22 or 8022

Here’s an example command for connecting to your device using its tethered connection: ssh root@

For doing development work on device, it’s recommended to use SSH agent forwarding.


The public keys are only fetched from your GitHub account once. In order to update your device’s authorized keys, you’ll need to re-enter your GitHub username.

The id_rsa key in this directory only works while your device is in the setup state with no software installed. After installation, that default key will be removed.

See the community wiki for more detailed instructions and information.
