That's actually quite a good idea and in reality it could probably be based on exactly the same OpenWrt source.  OpenWrt compiles just fine for ARM processors as well as MIPS based Routers.

Something like this:


Would run an OpenWrt build with Tor as Relay/Exit just fine.  And I would be quite OK if the Relay/Exit version required some technical skills for installation (as in was not available as a ready flashed plug-and-go device).

My own area of expertise is mainly the embedded Linux part and some solid network/unix foundation, but yes - I'd be happy to help and as mentioned earlier whatever source produced or maintained on Github currently I'd be quite happy to move to a torproject server if that is preferred.
