hi all,

I have an hitachi's modem router based on a broadcom chip who is BCM6348,
I can't see any support of this in openwrt, freifunk ....
Many ISP use this chip on their modem-router and the firmware is opensource

the T-COM Speedport W 500V (clone of the hitachi AH4021), freebox (FR), fritzbox, livebox (FR) Siemens Adsl SL2-141-I .... have opensource firmware

They have many feature : an USB port (master or slave), 2 VOIP port, a braodcom minipci card (bcm 4318), 2 ethernet port.

Source hitachi ah4021

Source speedport w500 voip

i already worked on a port for this router but i stopped due the situation that many sources are missing in the gpl release. but there will be some ongoing process in future. i cannot open any details or time schedules. but a port is in progress

thanks Brainslayer for you reply.

I am a noob in linux embedded system and there is my question:

Can i simply compile dd-wrt source for the broadcom 6348 without to mod the source?

where is the problem with this platform?

Can i change the TSOP flash chip with a bigger from a mp3 player?
it's a SAMSUNG K9F1G08U0A 128M x 8 Bit NAND Flash Memory.
It's possible Question

I hope Brainslayer will find the way to make a custom firmware for the bcm6348 based devices.

Good luck and thanks for dd-wrt.


If anyone in this forum have a device with that chip, please say it in this topic

If pin 13 is conected on the board.. then i would think that you could use a mx29lv640at for a replacement flash ... 8M flash ---- and i dont think you can use one from a MP3 player ..

Iv looked around and i couldnt find it or a generic replacement at my more favorite supplyers here in the us ... i dont know of any overseas supplyers .

my unit has a serial. and yours have too. i see it on the picture. the connector on the right top of the cpu is one. the jtag is something you have to search. but i dont have any jtag utility right now. the good thing. the cfe has a webinterface for debricking. just push the reset button 20 or 30 seconds and the webpage will appear on the default address

I'm currently playing with this modem.
It's based on BCM9648.
Instead of applying directly an alternative firmware, I modify step by step the current version of my CI.Box.
Up to now, I rewrite in french hmtl pages and I suppress spaces in order to gain memory (webs directory is rebuced by 100K), I included a lot of function of busybox. And now i'm working about dhcp based on mac adress.

This is the welcome screnn by using serial interface
Board IP address : 192.168.1.1:ffffff00
Host IP address : 192.168.1.100
Gateway IP address :
Run from flash/host (f/h) : f
Default host run file name : vmlinux
Default host flash file name : bcm963xx_fs_kernel
et au niveau du help
w Write the whole image start from beginning of the flash
e Erase [n]vram or [a]ll flash except bootrom
r Run program from flash image or from host depend on [f/h] fl
ag
p Print boot line and board parameter info
c Change booline parameters
f Write image to the flash
i Erase persistent storage data
b Change board parameters
reset Reset the board
flashimage Flashes a compressed image after the bootloader.
help Obtain help for CFE commands


I'll be very happy if someone can tell me how to load ans start directly a firmware image with r command . The image will be located on an external tftp server.

I did a lot of tests and I don't understand which format must have my image.
I know how to write an image firmware in the flash then boot with it...but its very dangerous if my image is wrong specialy when I want play with cfe.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure this post is in the right place.

And we already have lot of docs and info about this box.

Perhaps we can bring our rock to your project ? ;)
