Re: TG585 v7 unlocking - hardware method?


[re: jimbobaggies] [link to this post]
 
Finally got a Tiscali branded TG585 v7 back to Thomson factory defaults and now the setup looks the same as this http://www.gradwell.com/support/kb/article.php?id=49 smile

Used TG585v7_UK_R7447_CL firmware and the Thomson XP&Vista 32bit UPG Wizard v7200 UPGRADE TOOL.

Hopefully will try the same with a Plusnet branded TG585 v7 with generic 8.2.6.5 firmware next - problem is that the modem-help web site appears to be down and I can not access any Alcatel firmware at the moment frown

Did you only use software, or did you have to use JTAG or similar?

BatBoy,

Software only smile

Guess a JTAG build would definitely be needed for a locked O2 box though...

Got the Plusnet branded tg585 v7 router back to Thomson factory defaults - found generic 8.2.6.5 firmware (ZZ5YAA8.265.bli) elsewhere on the net and it works a treat smile

Both the Firewall and wireless security is off by default after the setup but no problem to turn them on. Also router user name, i.e. admin, and password is required to access the GUI during the setup.

Mine has not failed since I applied the firmware update. With the generic 7.4.4.7 it used to lock out ethernet connected PCs every few days and had to be rebooted.

I am hoping that this will continue.

The firmware update procedure kept my userid and passwords, and the Wifi security.

Michael,

I've had the unbranded 8.2.6.5 firmware running for 24 hours now and it is very stable with no disconnections - had a few problems setting up file sharing on the WLAN between Win7 sp1 32bit and XP sp3 32bit machines but I think that was caused by the Kaspersky firewalls. Wireless signal has been very good using WPA2 AES encryption although I turn wireless off when I'm not using it.

Will have to see how it goes during the next few days with the XP machine connected over ethernet...

4M2.
