Topic: Netgear MBRN3000

Hi guys,

i'm trying to install Backfire on a Netgear MBRN3000. It's essentialy a DGN2200 without ADSL modem, based on BCM6358

here is the output of CFE boot:

i've tried to compile the original firmware from Netgear but it compile and doesn't boot with the error:

Warning: unable to open an initial console.

It use for firmware image, the TRX format with the signature
reading the original command that create netgear firmware, i've tried to make a trx image combine kernel and root fs,

we i try to flash the new image with the command "flashimage" i got this error after finished loading:

**Exception 32: EPC=8042785C, Cause=8041DD04 (TLBMod   )
                RA=00435870, VAddr=8041DD04

any suggestion?

many thanks!

Re: Netgear MBRN3000

i've made some steps

first seems that this CFE doesn't have "CFE1CFE1" signature sad
second i've flashed a firmware w/CFE (but also this haven't sign) of a D-Link 2760U

anyone has a CFE 1.0.37-102.9 with a valid signature?

Any progress on your attempt to get this working?
