And while I got to see some data off the ECI via a clothes peg and a UART the hacking instructions failed to work.

Turn the modem power OFF before disconnecting - that will ensure it is seen as a managed disconnect rather than a loss of sync.

Then disconnect everything and remove the front plate to check there are no wires connected to it. Following that, carefully remove te next level and check the connections there - you should ONLY see two connections to the incoming screw terminals and nothing else. Carefully replace and refit the faceplate.


edit to add:

If you are unsure of anything, take pictures, host on Photobucket, Flikr, ... and provide a link here.

I would monitor/check the current IP Profile.
This will give an indication on the state of the line.

Ask if you need help on how to do this smile

They can but you need to mess around with the hardware, it's not just a firmware/flash type unlock.
