TG585 v7 unlocking - hardware method?


[link to this post]
 
Has anybody here done it? Need a link to instructions plus diagram or pics if possible.

Soldering small connections is no problem.

Cheers,

Yes i would be very much interested in this too.

Is this so you can use DMT tool on the router? because it is blocked with o2/be firmware and hardware locked ?

I really want to use DMT tool on mine. Im with BE

Yep, I've got three of them sitting around in the house, two supplied by my current isp (one of which is in use) and a third supplied by a previous isp and they are all locked.

These Thomson routers are not expensive items but it would be interesting to mess about with the one supplied by my previous isp ,unlock it and have full access to configuration settings etc.

Thanks BatBoy,

Looks like I'm going to have to find an unlocked router and use it to help unlock the locked one - not sure I know anybody who would lend me their unlocked TG585 v7, we might end up with two knackered routers LOL!

Might find an unlocked one cheap somewhere though, and if I don't bust it, then sell it on smile

Just heard that a Plusnet TG585 v7 will be automatically unlocked after one year once an account is closed...not sure if this is correct or not?

I doubt that is true as they would have to upload a new CFE to the router, which they couldn't do remotely. Anyway, follow the instructions in this thread...

jimbobaggies,

Thanks for the reply and the info, may give that method a go if I find time...

However just got an inexpensive GetNet router from Scan http://www.scan.co.uk/products/getnet-150mbps-n-wire... that's been running perfectly for three days on adslmax.

Yet to see if it's any good with adsl2+ though...may have to work on one of the Thomsons if it doesn't smile
