Self-hosting has always been a good idea but when your platform doesn't want to serve you, we have some self-hosted options that will. A Reddit user has Linux booting on an iPhone 7, a man was quoted $50K to run fiber to his house, so he built his own fiber ISP!

Email 1 - Feedback from EP 212 Bluetooth and Drawing Tablet - David
HSP/HFP designed for phones not computers
Bluetooth support on Linux is difficult due to the way blue-tooth works (uses modem commands on mobile)
Possible Solutions that bypass Linux blue-tooth stack
XP-PEN came up and they have a driver for Linux. It is a little bit hokey in the sense that their configuration application needs to be running in order for it to work.
It does not always survive suspend/resume, but it is easy to launch again.
Their non-display models also have good support for left-hand versus right-hand drawing
When used as a display, there is no left-hand mode because it relies on dm to configure the display
We purchased an xp-pen innovator 16 It is a 1080p 15.6 inch matte screen with hardware buttons connected via HDMI and 2 USB ports
XP-PEN seems like a good company

EITHER arm64 cross compiler or an arm64 native device. I used a rpi4 on 20.04 <-- way helpful to be able to chroot and setup, otherwise you'd have to use qemu-user

Jared Mauch Built his Own ISP
Jared Mauch didn’t have good broadband—so he built his own fiber ISP
AT&T's advertised plans for his neighborhood topped out at a measly 1.5Mbps
Eventually switched to a WISP that delivered about 50Mbps
Comcast told him it would charge $50,000 to extend its cable network to his house
Mauch built his own ISP (buried the fiber for 10,000)
As of early January, Mauch has 30 homes and 10 homes to hookup
