Last month the time came to say farewell to my FP1 and find a new phone.
I am now looking to repurpose it as a pihole.
Would it be possible to do this?
It has many benefits over buying a raspberry pi for this:
- it has a build in UPS to survive (short) poweroutages
- when wall-mounted; the screen could be used to display stats on the current LAN and ads.
- it is good for the environment to reuse old electronics!
- if successful, it could prove a very nice way for other people as well to repurpose their old (fair)phones.
Are there here people with some experience who could chip in with ideas about the (im)possibilities of a project like this?
I think one prerequisite would be to get some sort of Linux on the FP1. Postmarket seems like a great project for this, but currently the Wifi is not working on the FP1.
Another option is Debian, but the installers I find say they are not (longer) compatible with FP1…
