There’s a server in my pocket!

I’m not a psychopath, I’m just very creative.

Taking part in competitions like “eurobot”, where you have to do some coding in extreme conditions, on/under a table, on the floor, etc. and a few other trips like that convinced me that I should definitely make something more of my cell phone. Something, that will help me out in this case.

So, we have:

  • A dumb brick called ‘HD7 Pro’ from china, with android 2.3.5. One and a half years old.
  • /dev/brains
  • A few hours of free time

What we want to get:

  • A portable server with lighttpd, ssh, git, etc
  • WiFi AP with local dns, internet tethering (if we’re not roaming!)
