Using "old" Zipabox Hardware for other projects?

Since the end of Zipato's V2 cloud platform has been announced, I wonder if it is not possible to use the hardware, which often still works perfectly, for other projects or applications.

According to the data sheet, the box uses Linux, so shouldn't it be possible to run Home Assis tant on it instead of Zipato's firmware, for example?

Hey community! 👋 I've been pondering the recent announcement about the end of Zipato's V2 cloud platform, and it got me thinking - could we repurpose the still-functional hardware for other exciting projects?

Taking a peek at the data sheet, it's great to see that the Zipato V2 box runs on Linux. Now, considering the versatility of Linux, has anyone explored the possibility of installing Home Assistant on it instead of Zipato's firmware?

Home Assistant is known for its flexibility and wide range of compatible devices. Utilizing the existing hardware for a new smart home hub could be a fantastic way to breathe new life into these devices and keep them running smoothly.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Has anyone attempted such a transformation, or do you have insights into the compatibility and feasibility of this idea? Let's pool our knowledge and explore the potential of giving our trusty Zipato V2 devices a second life! 🌐💡
