I have a GT-S5830 Samsung smartphone with Android 2.xxx, that I am not using as a phone.
It would be nice if the device could be used as a wifi repeater. Unfortunately, this is impossible or not easily achievable.
Sadly, the device is not listed among the CyanogenMod supported devices.
Here it is explained that complete replacement of the Android for Ubuntu is impossible, and there exists some app, that installs a limited version of Ubuntu to run besides the Android, at the same time.
Unfortunately the internal RAM appers to be quite limited:
Card slot 2 GB included Internal
RAM 278 MB
I need the CPU and the wifi radio. If the camera works and is accessible from OpenCV, it would be a bonus.
Can I flash a generic Linux system on this phone - with the abovementioned drivers and optionally a standard repository?
