I've overlooked your contributions unlokia and for that i appologise, your first few posts pretty much had this thing hacked wide open, if only i had read more carefully.

oh and when upgrading the images via tftp your IP address should be 192.168.1.99, I've seen it mentioned that it should end in .2 but when I captured packets with wireshark and had serial console i (to check if tftp was working, i never had it serving anything with aftp hence the -21 error, so i used the normal tftpd ubuntu package).

So if I still had a working box i would be using openWRT image builder to build an image for this, then padding out the image to the right size and trying it via tftp and the webUI, if you cant get it accepted then try taking a CRC hash of it with jacksum and then changing the last few bytes to match that checksum, doing this will change the checksum but it worked for me somehow, also the checksum quoted by the BB is different to the checksum that jacksum will give you as it can be calculated in different ways, I have scoured the internet looking for reference to Arc Magic signature but still cannot find the software they are using, i know Arc is an old compression algorythm and some compression programs can sign / encrypt files but i couldnt find an arc related one that would do that, Arc was originally an MS-DOS program and i think it may be some old windows software? i'm not sure.

so when u get an image accepted you will see this in serial:
(im not sure if this is from preboot tftp of from webUI, as the following has been sat in notepad for days unsaved lol).


Code:
ip=192.168.1.99

As i said before the image didn't boot it gave a uboot error, invalid uboot image (via serial), but remember there are 2 images you can boot from supposidly, so maybe if you get one to boot you can change the other one to mount as a read / write and then upload it so people can flash there BB's with stock firmware but be able to make changes to the filesystem, that would be sweet.

Hey guys, I've been really busy with work these last few days, hoping to get a bit of free time soon.

Very nice work so far, whitenight639, I'm sad to see that you have to give it up! Hopefully what you've got here will help us crack it open.

Not sure if they are any good, although new and unused. Could never get the Internet to connect. Such a waste to just bin them. Have offered them locally but no takers.

Wonder if they actually sell any at that price!

I would be interested to know if they actually connect to the Internet.
We were sent 3 and couldn't connect any, although the old belkin
Router is fine. Amazing that orange just kept sending replacements and not wanting the others back.

Forgive me for posting this info if it has already been posted before, but I have just upgraded, cross-graded and downgraded my Bright Box, using the Bright Box MTD rips, using the "Upgrade Software" page:

1/ Turn box OFF, and in a browser, type: http://192.168.1.1

2/ **Immediately** turn on the router, simultaneously HOLDING DOWN the reset button UNTIL you see:



3/ Once you get to ^ that page, browse for the "priimg" file for the version you want - Orange/EE

4/ Press "Update Software" button. Wait 3 mins, then repeat from step #1, except at step #3 you go to the BOTTOM part of the "Upgrade Software" page, and choose the matching Orange/EE "bootloader" file, then click the "Update Bootloader" button... and wait...


The "bootloader" flashing seems MUCH faster than the "priimg" - just keep refreshing the browser, and you'll know when it has up/downgraded, as the branding will change accordingly.



Here are my notes: Notice the different versions of "Runtime Code Version" and "Boot Code Version"

IF anyone would like to donate, and it is by no means my motivation for this, PM me - I always need coins for new gadgets/hacking tools

Thanks

How to use the Bright Box on another ISP, using the built-in debugger in Chrome browser:




!!!! #### IMPORTANT - THIS ONLY WORKS ON THE NEWER, "EE" BRANDED BRIGHT BOX FIRMWARE, SO FAR, **NOT** ON THE "ORANGE" (ORIGINAL) FIRMWARE #### !!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


!!!! #### TO UPGRADE YOUR BRIGHT BOX TO THE LATEST "EE" FIRMWARE WHICH ALLOWS THIS HACK TO PROCEED, VISIT: http://www.the-scream.co.uk/forums/s...&postcount=229 !!!! ####
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How to set Bright Box to other ISP:

1/ Open http://192.168.1.1 in Chrome

2/ Login with: "admin" as username, and your unique Bright Box login password (underneath box)

3/ Go to "Basic Set-Up" tab

4/ At the very bottom of the page, you'll see a box - "MTU" - type in the correct value (1500 for O2 and BT, 1492 for Orange/EE)

### DO NOT PRESS SAVE SETTINGS YET! ###




5/ Press "F12" key, and Chrome's de-bugger panel will appear; click "Sources" tab

6/ On the de-bugger panel, click the little square at the top left of the panel, which looks like this: [|>]

7/ You will see a list of files - DOUBLE-click the one entitled: "atmpvc.htm?t=<some_numbers_here>" - this file will now open in the de-bugger panel

8/ Scroll down to line "606" (line numbers are shown in the far LEFT, in grey) and SINGLE-click it - the line number will now be highlighted in dark blue,

and have an arrow pointing to the right

### NOTE - Line 606 should have this code in it ----> "return subForm(f, cPage, subFormWANADSLETHConf, 3)" ###




9/ In the router page (which should still be open), scroll to the bottom, and click "Save Settings" button

10/ The web page will go dark transparent grey, and at the top, it should say "Paused in debugger"

11/ In the de-bugger panel, click the "Console" tab - a white background should appear, with a tiny blue ">" at the top left

12/ Click DIRECTLY next to the little blue ">", and type as below:



#### !!!! THESE ARE EXAMPLES - DO NOT USE THESE !!!! ####


In Step #4, at the start of this document, type your MTU value for your ISP into "MTU" box (remember - DO NOT press "Save Settings" button at that point!)

setCfg("ISP_Username1","your_isp_adsl_username@you r.isp") (Now press RETURN key)

setCfg("ISP_Password1","your_isp_adsl_password") (Now press RETURN key)





For BT Broadband, use these values (#### ACTUAL VALUES - YOU *CAN* USE THESE ####):


In Step #4, at the start of this document, type "1500" into "MTU" box (remember - DO NOT press "Save Settings" button at that point!)

setCfg("ISP_Username1","bthomehub@btbroadband.com" ) (Now press RETURN key)

setCfg("ISP_Password1","") <---- this is what you enter if your ISP has a BLANK ADSL PASSWORD (Now press RETURN key)






13/ Go back to the "Sources" tab on the de-bugger panel, and on the FAR right of the panel, at the top, there is a little button that looks like the play button on a DVD player or VCR - like this: "|>" (if you hover over it with your mouse cursor, it will say "Resume script execution (f8)" )

14/ Click that button, and it will save all your ADSL settings into the Bright Box. You may now press "F12" again to close the de-bugger panel.

Done

:-)

Smile Re: [NEW] Orange "Bright Box" router hacking :-)

I have examined the javascript of the hidden web pages for the new EE firmware and I saw that the variable "hidepage" was read from the config. Also the protection.htm page called was referring to the variable "hidekey"

Code:
var hidepage=getCfg("hidepage");
if(hidepage==0)
{
    window_location_replace("parent.mainFrame", "protection.htm?pg=z983erv3210ba.htm");
}
else
{
    // Do original stuff here
}
My first thought was to use fiddler2 to respond with a modified page with the config checking removed. This worked a dream, but a bit complicated for a novice to setup.

I then noticed that "hidepage" and "hidekey" were among the list of TR069 parameters in the system section, so I though about setting this to something other than zero with the commands listed previously.

Code:
root@BrightBox:/ # /bin/util_ccfg_cli showcfg

Section: system
lang_code=0
time_zone=PST8PDT
gui_style=1
remote_mgmt_en=0
remote_mgnt_ip=0.0.0.0
remote_mgnt_mask=255.255.255.255
host_name=
wan_type=0
active_wan_type=1
ppp_pass_thru=0
default_ip=192.168.1.1
ccfg_bk_fname=backup.bin
hidepage=0
hidekey=5;m6ek
I though what the heck, lets try the string 5;m6ek as the password and it worked.

You can fiure it out tho with firebug, or can follow my method previously posted but change
Step 11 to..

/bin/util_ccfg_cli set username@wanETH=YOORUSERNAME@myISP.com

instead of username@wan#001

to do it the easy way you will need to find the variable that is assigned to that config value in the script, so for username@wan#001 the variable was something like ISP_Username1 so it will be different for the wanETH (might even be ISP_Username2 if your lucky).

Default Re: [NEW] Orange "Bright Box" router hacking :-)

How to use the Bright Box on another ISP, using the built-in debugger in Chrome browser:




!!!! #### IMPORTANT - THIS ONLY WORKS ON THE NEWER, "EE" BRANDED BRIGHT BOX FIRMWARE, SO FAR, **NOT** ON THE "ORANGE" (ORIGINAL) FIRMWARE #### !!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


!!!! #### TO UPGRADE YOUR BRIGHT BOX TO THE LATEST "EE" FIRMWARE WHICH ALLOWS THIS HACK TO PROCEED, VISIT: http://www.the-scream.co.uk/forums/s...&postcount=229 !!!! ####
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How to set Bright Box to other ISP:

1/ Open http://192.168.1.1 in Chrome

2/ Login with: "admin" as username, and your unique Bright Box login password (underneath box)

3/ Go to "Basic Set-Up" tab

4/ At the very bottom of the page, you'll see a box - "MTU" - type in the correct value (1500 for O2 and BT, 1492 for Orange/EE)

### DO NOT PRESS SAVE SETTINGS YET! ###




5/ Press "F12" key, and Chrome's de-bugger panel will appear; click "Sources" tab

6/ On the de-bugger panel, click the little square at the top left of the panel, which looks like this: [|>]

7/ You will see a list of files - DOUBLE-click the one entitled: "atmpvc.htm?t=<some_numbers_here>" - this file will now open in the de-bugger panel

8/ Scroll down to line "606" (line numbers are shown in the far LEFT, in grey) and SINGLE-click it - the line number will now be highlighted in dark blue,

and have an arrow pointing to the right

### NOTE - Line 606 should have this code in it ----> "return subForm(f, cPage, subFormWANADSLETHConf, 3)" ###




9/ In the router page (which should still be open), scroll to the bottom, and click "Save Settings" button

10/ The web page will go dark transparent grey, and at the top, it should say "Paused in debugger"

11/ In the de-bugger panel, click the "Console" tab - a white background should appear, with a tiny blue ">" at the top left

12/ Click DIRECTLY next to the little blue ">", and type as below:



#### !!!! THESE ARE EXAMPLES - DO NOT USE THESE !!!! ####


In Step #4, at the start of this document, type your MTU value for your ISP into "MTU" box (remember - DO NOT press "Save Settings" button at that point!)

setCfg("ISP_Username1","your_isp_adsl_username@you r.isp") (Now press RETURN key)

setCfg("ISP_Password1","your_isp_adsl_password") (Now press RETURN key)





For BT Broadband, use these values (#### ACTUAL VALUES - YOU *CAN* USE THESE ####):


In Step #4, at the start of this document, type "1500" into "MTU" box (remember - DO NOT press "Save Settings" button at that point!)

setCfg("ISP_Username1","bthomehub@btbroadband.com" ) (Now press RETURN key)

setCfg("ISP_Password1","") <---- this is what you enter if your ISP has a BLANK ADSL PASSWORD (Now press RETURN key)






13/ Go back to the "Sources" tab on the de-bugger panel, and on the FAR right of the panel, at the top, there is a little button that looks like the play button on a DVD player or VCR - like this: "|>" (if you hover over it with your mouse cursor, it will say "Resume script execution (f8)" )

14/ Click that button, and it will save all your ADSL settings into the Bright Box. You may now press "F12" again to close the de-bugger panel.

Done
