Met up with Richneo (hardwarezone) and Liangtam (hardwarezone) earlier on at Westmall to recover Liangtam’s bricked FON. Liangtam’s set was bricked because of the RedBoot’s configuration were corrupted (probably due to bad RedBoot configuration writing). Upon connecting to the FON through hyperterminal, the RedBoot complained of initialization error and prompted me to run “fconfig -i”. Ran the command and inputted the settings manually, check out the trackbacks on the configuration for RedBoot.
As I didn’t have FON default firmware ready, flashed Liangtam’s set to dd-wrt for atheros device. The flashing went fine and was glad that his FON is working after much exploring. Anybody need a guide for recovering a bricked fon?
Next was flashing Richneo’s FON with OpenWRT kamikaze with x-wrt webif. Everything went well again. The flashing process was terribly slow but then it’s worth it when it is running the new software! Phew!
Chatted with them during the process. Both of them are knowledgable! Richneo is like so busy and both of them knows quite a lot of people in hardwarezone! Don’t know most of the people they mentioned. Hopefully I will receive my second FON for sharing my internet connect as part of the FON campaign. What about my current set? Continue playing by flashing 3rd party firmwares on it!
