Thanks for the suggestion. We generally are more focused on future revisions of mobile OS to keep up-to-date, but I see your point.
Would it instead be possible for you to use our NodeJS version of the gateway? You can find the code here: https://github.com/bluzDK/bluz-gateway
That should run on any PC, Mac, Single Board Computer, or other Linux PC that has an internet connection and a Bluetooth LE radio. For example, it can run on cheap Raspberry Pi's or CHIP's.
