Woo my goodfet boards came!

Many thanks to Travis Goodspeed for posting some GoodFet41 boards to me, still not got all the parts yet [ skint :( ] but here's a few snaps of my semi assembled board, all hand soldered :D

openwrt on Edimax NS-1500N working?

gWell I wasn't expecting that to happen.

I thought I'd try the fon 2.0n openwrt build environment on it as they are similar chips, anways  I messed around with kernel configs abit and seemed I broke something so I had to manually select setting, so I picked rt3050 options and proper memory size an hey presto a stock fon2.0n flashed fine :O
wifi and usb all seem to work, next is how to remove all the fon branding etc. but for now I can start writing my data logging software now yay!

With a bit of fat cut out the firmware I bet this would work on other edimax stuff  like the 3g-6200n and maybe even the 36-6200nl?

Change of plans?

Had a tiny bit more progress on the zoom, managed to dump the firmware, and now I've been able to distinguish the header and checksums, all the info will be documented in a wiki once working.

Also another ebay bargin an Edimax NS-1500N, this listed on their site as a wireless NAS but has an RT3050.

This thing is tiny! its like 1/2 the size of the zoom. its listed as having 4MB flash on the edimax site but Amazingly it seems to have 8MB of flash inside :O so I'll be moving focus to that.

Hacking Zoom 4501 part 2.5

while randomly searching ebay for bargin rt305x devices i spotted a LEVEL ONE WBR-6800 which looks  very familiar to the zalip CDW530AM...
Found the manufactures website and hey presto its the same and there's a gpl zip for it.
Followed the instructions that came with it and make fails, it seems a lot has bee stripped out, but I've spotted the make file and program that builds the firmware.

I've also had reply from zoom with a link for gpl stuff and it look like it has come from the same place (amit) but dated older so fingers crossed that compiles.

Still no luck dumping the flash, httpd wont budge from /var/www which is read only and the tftp doesn't allow the put command.

built a wiggler and tried some jtag but that was a waste of time, none of the software made any sense and they all seem to be written in the stone age.

Hacking zoom 4501 part 2


I emailed zoom for sources and got the response "sorry- this is not possible." so unless they miss understood the  email they are violating gpl by not releasing it., noobs.
Any way it seems it is also known as Aluratek CDW530AM and Zalip CDW530AM, I've downloaded some firmware for the aluratek model to see if I could flash that.


They have different headers but even after changing that the zoom router wouldn't accept the firmware. :( so its not just headers that it needs.


I was using hyperterm to connect to the serial console but I didn't have much success, I'm now using putty and that seems to work.


So I now have console access :D 


The bootloader (jboot?) can be stopped by pressing enter after boot up, and has a prompt for commands typing 'help'
spits out this.


# help
command list...
reboot
info
load
go
dm
wm
rm
copy
ip [ip]
mac [mac]
ping
areacode


it also responds to 'erase' and 'flash'
I'm not sure what to do with any of the commands yet but hopefully I can figure out how to get around only using zoom firmware. 


Also the router is not as linux friendly as I'd hoped, there are no open source wifi drivers for it so it relies on binary drivers from ralink, the only ones avaliable only work with 2.6.21 kernel, so no backfire :/


Fortunately the fonera 2.0n and simpl use the same chipsets and use older openwrt and seem to have stable firmware. yay!


Update: The bootloader has a built in tftp so pressing enter to stop the boot process then "putting" a firmware file over seems to do the trick now to test non zoom firmware!


it also has http server which directs to a page called "jon recovery system" with just a browse and upgrade button.


I''ve done some more messing with headers and non zoom firmware and it seems theres a checksum of some sort as well, so more guess work needed :@

ECU interface using Openwrt on Zoom 4501. Part 1

I've been seeing the increase of  Iphone integration with cars recently, most notably the generic OBD2 wifi/bluetooth interfaces and the accompanying apps.

This got me thinking, can it be done for pre obd2 or standalone ecus. I had a look at target devices that would suit and the only cross platform connection they had that was reliable is wifi.

Now most ecus use a usb connection so i set out to find hardware with wifi and a usb host port, and came across affordable 3g wifi routers. A quick scan on ebay an a bid was made on a Zoom 4501.

The Zoom 4501 has 4MB flash, 32MB ram and a rt3050 ralink chipset which seems to have reasonable linux support. High Res Scan

The router arrived today so my first mission is get openwrt running.

Soldered a header in j2 and connected a max232
opened hyperterm @ 57600 8-n-1 output is below
