    When rooting my pre and connecting using putty when I press an arrow key I am getting -[[a for left, and -[[b for right arrow and so on.

    I would like to know how to fix this so I can use vi with having the weird char's. put in.

    Thank you

    Did you change any settings? Are you running Putty or Puttytel? I run Putty and by default it works perfectly.

    If you are doing a proper SSH connection Putty works fine. When you are doing the raw forwarded connection using novaproxy, it doesn't forward over the arrow keys. Just get the thing rooted and set up with dropbear or openssh and you'll be able to use it with your arrow keys to your hearts content.
