Discussion


Just started looking at this device. It's interesting for a number of reasons:

12/12/05 - Apparently this product has just been made obsolete by netgear. So get one now if you want one.

Firmware hacking

Kernel starts at 0x00000000 and a JFFS2 Filesystem at 0x00140000

JFFS2 starts with magic 0x1895

extract the filesystem:
   dd if=wgt634u_1_4_1_9.img bs=1 > rootfs.jffs2


mount it:
To mount a jffs2 filesystem you need to use the mtdram device. You may also need to creat the device to mount ( mknod /dev/mtdblock0 b 31 0 )

   
   modprobe mtdcore
   modprobe mtdpart
   modprobe mtdram totalsize=32768 erasesize=256
   modprobe jffs2
   dd if=rootfs2 of=/dev/mtdblock0
   mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock0 ./mnt


Inside is a bunch of lrp packages. On boot the device creates a ramfs then unpacks the .lrp packages into it. A .lrp is a simple package inside a tar.gz archive.
