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.

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.

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.

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.

JedixJarf 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.

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

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]
