Question about flashing hah-firmware.dwb onto Livebox
I'm new to Livebox/HAH so hope my question isn't too stupid...
I've replaced the Redboot loader OK and think the next stage is to get the hah-firmware.dwb onto the Livebox (as I don't plan on assembling my own firmware)
As I don't have ready access to a Linux machine I've installed TFTP server onto Windows and am trying to translate the instructions here into Windows speak - http://www.dbzoo.com/livebox/firmware
The instructions say to "setup the linkage to the firmware" - what is meant by this? Is the factory_script_crypt just a link to the hah-firmware.dwb file or do I need something else?
Any help much appreciated!
Well, if you've 'broken in' to your Livebox and replaced the redboot, you are almost there.
You can simply use a Windows PC and the rgwrepair.exe utility to flash the hah.dwb image.
Don't forget, that one you do this, you will need to plug your HAH into your router, so that when it next boots, it will be allocated an IP address via DHCP.
Good that you have the HAH firmware onboard.
I'm sure that others would be interested in the detail of your solar power monitoring solution. Please do send us any content ... can get this put up on the Wiki.
Worked a treat, pity I didn't.
To ftp the redboot.
Set up filezilla server on windows, fought with windows firewall, created a group called 'all', allocated them read rights to the directory the , created user called anonymous with no password, made them a member of group all. Tested via ftp localhost (logged in as anonymous pressed return, return then did an ls to check I could see the expected files.
from the 'you can use the windows utility RGWrepair to transfer the firmware' just before you go into scary unix land. I started rgwrepair and pointed to the downloaded HA firmware.
Pressed button 1, Crossed fingers & toes and rebooted. NOTHING threw a hissy fit, then realised a few moments yeah right) later just what was mentioned above it has to go on your normal network with a DHCP server. did that and ran virtual lcd, poured myself a beverage toasted the development team as I admired my HAH hub!
