Ignore most of it for now. Look at the right-hand menu. You need the instructions and the unlocked images. (IIRC there is a "locked" version in the zip file as well in case you need it. I haven't heard of any unlocking failures though).

Once you've unlocked it you can use the xdslcmd commands through telnet, but I strongly recommend the Bald-Eagle1 scripts for ongoing logging, and graphing as required.

Good luck.

You could start here:-

Unlocking the HG612 Modem (slighly fewer mouse-clicks than the others that beat me to it by seconds/minutes) smile


The ECI modem, also sometimes supplied as part of a FTTC installation can also be unlocked, but not as easily as the HG612 & reliable graphing/data harvesting scripts and/or programs are not fully developed for that model yet.

Batboy do you know if that can unlock the 610 version? It's the same just has 4 ethernet ports.

Hi,

The HG610 f/w was never locked. Both Chinese and English f/w allow full web and telnet access.
if the HG612 f/w is flashed into the HG610 its two extra ethernet ports will disappear, and a few config options will disappear.
Which reminds, it would be good to know if the HG610 f/w works okay in all circumstances in the HG612.
Not that there's much to gain, except the ability to save the current configuration.

cheers, a

Thanks asbokid, I will be buying one of them on fleebay. Will use instead of the 612.

Can you still disable the backdoor on the HG610 like the 612 unlocked? If that even applies on the 610.

There is no BTAgent backdoor, and sure TR069/CWMP can be disabled smile
