Updating a firmware

** On Mac computers with OS X Mountain Lion or Lion, use Air Port Utility 6.3.1.

Your router’s firmware is basically the operating system that is specifically designed to run on your specific make and model of router (unless you are using a multi-router compatible open source firmware such as DD-WRT).

Usually, your router manufacturer will provide firmware updates for your specific make and model of router, via their website, or via a tool within the administrative console of your router (typically accessible via a web browser).

Header P32 is labeled "P2_8" on most Jawbreakers but may be labeled "2" on prototype units. At this point Jawbreaker is ready to receive firmware over USB.

You should only use a firmware image with a filename ending in ".dfu" over DFU, not firmware ending in ".bin".

To update to the latest CPLD image, first update the SPI flash firmware, libhackrf, and hackrf-tools.

Then: After a few seconds, three LEDs should start blinking.

By default, Hack RF boots from SPI flash memory (SPIFI). In DFU boot mode, Hack RF will enumerate over USB, wait for code to be delivered using the DFU (Device Firmware Update) standard over USB, and then execute that code from RAM.

The SPIFI is normally unused and unaltered in DFU mode.

So you have a wireless router that has been quietly serving Wi-Fi to your household for many years? Chances are, if you answered yes to either question, you may not have upgraded your router’s firmware in quite some time.
