Meanwhile, no setups running... sigh...

But I shall return!!!


That is a bummer. Hopefully most of your gear shut down before it cooked itself.

I know nothing of networking stuff so do you mind telling me what I'm looking at here?


You think if you replaced the battery the phone would be OK?

Those are single board computers stacked on top of each other that use minimal power but have nearly full PC functionality.

It was an old phone that I only used to crunch boinc projects with. I had already replaced the battery once before and I didn't think it was worth fixing again, so I bought the single board computers and attached them to the top of an ethernet switch. Now 7 of them are crunching [email protected] and 1 is crunching [email protected] It was a fun little project to do. I just need to clean it up a little bit. Right now it's sitting on top of the 4u case that houses CrunchAholic on my server rack in the basement.


The Le Potato boards would make a good backup desktop, they can do [email protected]

Could you not still use the phone to crunch without the battery by plugging it in to the charger?

I don't want to say its a bad idea to run a phone @ 100% cpu and leave it charging all the time but.... that is not a good idea if you like living in a house that has wooden walls lol.

The boinc app will only crunch with the phone plugged in.



Now you got me thinking, I wonder if the phone would still work with no battery at all and plugging it in, or does removing the battery break the circuit.....hmmm.

Are you running Armbian on those? For $50 they are powerhouse little machines.

I was going to pull the trigger on a few, but then I looked around at the various Pi's that I have gathering dust, and decided to wait until I actually had a use for them. One of my buddies is messing around with setting up 5 Potatos in a compute cluster, so once the heavy lifting is done on that, I might not be able to resist grabbing a few more SBCs.

You may have to do a bit of soldering, but as long as the OS doesn't look for a battery before loading, it should work. In theory that is true, but I don't have much experience in phone hacking, but I'm sure someone has done it before.

No, I'm running their version of Raspbian. I tried using Armbian on the first one, but boinc saw them as aarch64 machines instead ARM which none of the projects I tried recognized...and I was like OH No! I wasted my money...then I put Raspbian on it and it worked like the Pi's. I really didn't want to use Raspbian since Raspbian only sees them as ARMv7 when they are actually ARMv8.




I just tried my phone without the battery. It actually powers on, which surprised me...but it only shows a charging battery symbol on the screen. I wasn't going to use it...but I just had to try it.
