Re: Speedtouch TG585 v7 - generic firmware available?


[re: lg56xbp] [link to this post]
 
Ig56xbp,

To unlock that Be router you will possibly have to be very handy with a soldering iron and treat the whole exercise as a challenge!

See: http://forums.modem-help.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=1220&... but paradoxically you may need an additional unlocked TG585v7 router to do it...

Something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thomson-TG585-V7-54-Mbps-4... may be you best bet rather than mess with the BeBox.

I think there's an option in the O2 firmware for O2 Access, you could try that...

Sadly the options within the O2 /Thomson router setup are VERY limited.

Can you suggest another router I could pick up tomorrow on the high street?

Well, it's in there.

I'm sure your ISP will be able to recommend.

I can confirm the 585v7 BeBox is JTAG locked to BE - it is after all only leased to you

Indeed? Re "the eprom chip needs to be reset by a soldering iron ...". Usually very effective in turning it into a useless bit of junk smile.

Which is the response your completely unnecessary shouting deserves.

That's quite apart from the fact that the subject under discussion in the exchange to which you just contributed is about an O2 box, which is not the same as a Be box, and never was.

Also if you examine the headers of the posts, you replied to BatBoy. There is a Reply button against each post here, not just a Submit/Post for the thread. I suggest you use the right one.

Which wall is BatBoy banging his head against about what? Unless you think his head has a Be EPROM in it, which is what you said. Or do I misread your post, as it could mean the wall has a Be EPROM in it?

Anon posters shouting - yuk! Get some backbone and register. Put an identity where that big gob is.

O2 Boxes are all JTAG firmware locked to O2 as far as I'm aware

Only the 585v7 BeBox is JTAG firmware locked to BE - the others are not

I'm sure the OP said it was a BeBox

I'd like to use the Be-supplied Speedtouch TG585 v7


NB: O2 and Be only lease the router to you and will charge for non-return if you leave and do not return it
I know you know this RobertoS, but many seem to overlook this fact and then wonder why they get a large bil when they leave (not so large these days with BE at £35)

The exception with BE is the 716G and the 780WL which no longer have to be returned and those 587nv2 that were given out as loyalty rewards, offers or competitions
