I’m hoping to order up a FP2 at the end of the month, when I get paid, but mean time I want to use the phone as a comms device connected to various embedded electronics projects. What I’d really like is for my embedded electronics to be able to power up and down the FP2.
There are a number of ways that this could be done in Hardware, but the simplest by far would be if I could slightly change the Bootloader (if there is even a bootloader) so that the phone powers up when 5V is connected to the micro USB Port. And powers down again when the 5V is disconnected.
So is there a bootloader?
Is it opensource?
If not I guess I’ll have to look at how difficult it would be to de-solder the on/off button and wire it to a relay.
