Repurposing a used Android


Recommended Posts



I'd like to turn an old Motorola Droid into a device for home use. Ideally this will stay at my nightstand at all times. I'd like it to:

  • be an alarm clock,
  • play music from the internet, with a sleep timer,
  • tell me the weather, time, and read calendar events to me on command
  • take voice commands at all times to:

  • set, snooze, or turn off alarms,
  • tell me weather and temp,
  • tell me calendar events

If you know of a simple way to do this, please let me know. I don't have much experience in rooting/breaking phones but I can do the research if led in the correct direction.


Please also suggest any further additions to this project that you think I'd like.
