Overwrite Amazon Echo Dot with Mycroft?

Hi,

I have a free Echo Dot arriving in the post after buying a new heating system. I don’t want Alexa due to data privacy concerns. Is there a known way to overwrite the Echo with Mycroft?

Cheers,
Joe

No. There’s a previous thread about this, basically the hardware is not easily hackable and may not be sufficiently potent for mycroft.

What baconator said, but if you still want to try then a starting point could be this: https://github.com/echohacking/wiki/wiki

A shame, but thanks for the responses! Guess I’ll hold onto it as a Christmas present or sell it. Cheers
