been working on my bricked router, which is a WRT54G v6, and my other v6 which has a generic MAC address rather than the original. as usual, the tools for modifying leave one in the dark as to what is going on, so I wrote my own. next step is to build a USB to JTAG adapter with one of my microcontrollers.

maybe gonna attempt to rewrite the CFE on the working router in a few minutes, figured I'd better get this blog post off now because if it goes wrong I could be all the rest of the night trying to sort it.

found out something I'd probably known about years ago but had forgotten: xsel, as in cat cfe_nvram.py | xsel -b, then control-V at pastebin.com. sure beats copy-paste using the laptop pad and simultaneous mouseclicks.
