+ - Ask Slashdot: Could old Android phones be repurposed as pocket Wi-Fi repeaters?

Submitted by gaiageek
gaiageek (1070870) writes "In the interest of putting outdated or damaged (i.e. cracked screen) smartphones to good use, would it be possible to convert old Android devices into pocket Wi-Fi repeaters either through an app or via a dedicated ROM? Couldn't DD-WRT or similar linux-based router firmware run on even the lowest spec Android devices?"
