Getting A Fon Today. What To Do?


Recommended Posts

That is the current guide and was created by Darren so I'd go with that.

If you get stuck ask questions but please give as much info as you can on what you did, what worked and didn't work and where you are stuck.

It is a UK Fon? If so then it is closed by default, you need a cable to access and enable it. If it isn't UK based then when are you running the flashing app? You need to power on the Fon after the flash app has started as redboot is only enabled for the first 4 seconds or so after boot.

I don't think it's UK. But it is possible. Can I check that somewhere.. And how can I manualy enable it?

-- I am running the flashapp when the FON power is plugged out and a ethernet cable is connected to my PC. Then I hit GO in the app and plug the power in. After a couple of NO PACKET's I see that error

sounds like it is either a UK one or one that has the same setting as a UK one. Basically it only listens on 0.0.0.0 for redboot, i.e. you can't connect to it.

No idea how to tell from the outside, just know that that is the case.

To enable it you'll need a serial cable and connect direct to the console.

I downgraded to 0.7.1 r1. Followed the steps on this page http://forums.hak5.org/index.php?showtopic=9908. And it worked! I am flashing the firmware right now as I am typing this. Just needed to patch the redboot. And that is supersimple with that old but GOLDWORTH forumpost. Thanks Darren! You're a genius

-- I downgraded to 0.7.1 r1 by holding the reset button for 20 seconds. After that. It will reset to factory rom. After that. I could run the SSHenable.html and get in my FON.

I've heard someone say that before but not for a long time. Dig back through the forums and you might find the reference. No idea what could cause it as the software doesn't do anything to modify signal strengths.
