When mindlessly browsing through the Black Friday pages, I discovered the Amazon Echo devices whose hardware specification looks quite attractive according to the teardown posts
I’m wondering if I can “jailbreak” one and put some custom firmware on it. It would be awesome if we run k3s on it (imagine a cluster consisting of awakened Amazon Echo Dot!) If that’s too tricky, perhaps we can somehow get root access through a serial console and run some cross-compiled code on it?
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do this and I am surprised by the sparseness of the resources on this topic. Despite being vendor-locked by Amazon, the devices themselves are powerful and cheap, so that sounds like a fun side-project. Plus, we have physical access to them, and that would make things a lot easier, right?
I would appreciate it if anyone have experience or advice on how to jailbreak an Amazon Echo Dot.
