ok I thought i would post what i did to fix it.

After 12 hours of trouble shooting i figured it out!
wiki says under the fconfig -d to type

fis load linx
exec

i changed it to fix load linux.bin
exec

and it now works.


Thank you! That fixed my problem. I've updated the Wiki for MI424-WR, too.

I have a fresh (refurb) Rev D router. Using the stock VZ firmware, I used Firmware Upgrade -> Upgrade from a Computer in the Network & used the weblfash image. It said "Bad upgrade file signatures..". Am I using the image the wrong way?

I hadn't noticed a webflash image was made available, I'm not sure if that is meant as a flash to use once DD-WRT is already installed. (i.e., updating to a newer version) You may still need to go with the redboot method as the VZ version doesn't like the data in the webflash file... not entirely surprising, a good firmware would have routines in the upgrade process to check that what you're trying to replace it with is valid.

According to the wiki page:
"There is now a WebFlash image, although I haven't tested it, you could save yourself some time by trying that first"

I guess "first" wasn't the kind of "first" I'm used to. But I'll do the manual method. Thanks.

I flashed using Mac OS X.

chmod +x the jungo-image.py script
enable telnet on the router (Advanced -> Local Administration -> Primary port[23])
edited the jungo-image.py script for the current password
dumped via jungo-image.py -d 192.168.1.1
flashed redboot: jungo-image.py 192.168.1.1 linux.bin
    Unlocking flash...
    Writing new image...
    load -u http://192.168.1.55:8080/linux.bin -r 0
    Wireless_Broadband_Router.home - - [05/Aug/2010 11:15:05] "GET /linux.bin HTTP/1.1" 200 -
    Flash update complete!

telnet into router after flash: telnet 192.168.1.1 (same user/pass as VZ firmware) on the LAN port I got stuff like:

but now that I power-cycled, I can't even get that anymore. I can't telnet on the LAN or WAN side (on port 9000 or 23) & I've got a static IP of 192.168.1.2 :
    telnet 192.168.1.1 9000
    Trying 192.168.1.1...
    telnet: connect to address 192.168.1.1: Operation timed out
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host

I've held the reset button before powering on, during powering on, after... nothing. On a lark, I even compiled putty & tried to telnet in, but no luck. I can't telnet into Redboot.

Oh, well. I'll go back to flashing with the rb-mi424wr-ROM.bin file. I had a revD that had a melted case (plus 2 good ones), so I didn't mind going off the reservation & losing it.

I'll add that I didn't use tftp to serve the linux.bin file, I served using http on Mac OS X:
    System Preferences -> Sharing -> Web Sharing - check the service is on
    place the linux.bin file in /Library/WebServer/Documents
    have the router fetch the firmware:
    RedBoot> load -r -v -b 0x800000 -h 192.168.1.2 -m http /linux.bin
    [WAN light flashes for a few seconds; will say: Raw file loaded 0x00800000-0x00ee3fff, assumed entry at 0x00800000]
    verify by dumping the memory & comparing the the data to linux.bin:
    RedBoot> x -b 0x800000 -l 128

& continue on as before. Also, the openwrt wiki has revD info that isn't included here.

Not sure if this is in the right place...
When i try to flash to redboot it gives me the error "Can't determine flash size!"
Why is this?

So, are we going to see support for REV E routers soon?

before you consider it a brick do the 30/30/30 reset. the same thing happenned to 2 routers I have one is a rev A and the other a rev C. both now boot up still using the VERIZON firmware.

the problem I have is no matter what I do inclusding opening ports TELNET is not working, so I can not install REDBOOT on it.


I only have one good router working with DD- WRT and yes it does upgrade to the latest dd-wrt from the WEB. I am however running the latest brainslayer build and this is my main EDGE router.

I have not gotten too far trying to decipher the JTAG ports , so I just ordered another parallel port jtag and see if I can get any luck

this time around I orderd this kit

http://www.diygadget.com/jtag-cables/parallel-jtag-utility-bundle.html

I sure wish I knew what the difference is between the Jungo boot utility and the REDboot that is used here and at openwrt

I hope I can lear how to force WRITE the redboot to the router bypassing the need for telnet.

I read somewhere that TFTP is used sometimes, but need more knowledge

if anyone has any info on any of this please feel free to email me if you do not post it here

rtoledo2002@yahoo.com

thanks

you may want to open a rev E or the new F they may be based on a new processor, not sure but I have a wild guess they may be the same as the Westell 9100 using the Infineon CPU

I just got what may be a bricked 9100 from Ebay for 9.00 dollars so as soon as I get the JTAG hardware I ordered I want to start playing with it too.

IF anyone in here has any links on how to tell what each pin is on the 14 pin pad on the 9100 or how to use a ohm meter to trace the pins to the cpu chip itself please post the links

I thank you in advanced!

well I found this post regarding the IXP425 cpu in the Actiontec

Pronghorn Metro SBC includes an ARM-standard 20-pin JTAG header for use with IXP42x emulators and
debuggers. The Pronghorn SBC 200 and 210 are intended for very low-cost, high-volume CPE
applications and they do not include the JTAG connector in order to save the cost of an unused

feature.
Pronghorn Metro SBC’s JTAG port is compatible with any of the available third-party XScale JTAG tools,
from vendors including Macraigor Systems, Abatron, Embedded Performance, ARM, and others.
Table 7.
IXP425 JTAG Connector Pinout

Pin# PinName Connect To Pin

1 VTREF +3.3V
2 VSUPPLY +3.3V
3 TRST_N JTG_TRST 10-K Ω pulldown

– TRST also
generated from reset
circuit whenever system
reset asserted and from
Corelis test equipment

4 GND GND
5 TDI JTG_TDI
6 GND GND
7 TMS JTG_TMS 10-K Ω pull-up
8 GND GND
9 TCK JTG_TCK 10-K Ω pull-up
10 GND GND
11 RTCK GND
12 GND GND
13 TDO JTG_TDO
14 GND GND
15 SRST_N Reset circuitry
16 GND GND
17 DBGRQ Not Connected
18 GND GND
19 DGBACK Not Connected
20 GND GND


seems like the pins are the same as the WRV54g so it's safe to say I either have the wrong software or this USB to Serial port is not what I need, guess I will wait a week till the new JTAG port comes to continue. in the meantime I am downlaoding every jtag piece of software just in case.
