How To Reset a Gen3 Device
There are several methods for resetting a Gen3 device (all accomplish the same thing).
1. Webend "Reset EVERYTHING" button
2. win-stock-reset.bat or option 7 of linux-homebrew.sh
3. place empty file on same thumbdrive as firmware called "reset-all" if this is present at boot time, device will be reset
4. place empty file on same thumbdrive as firmware called "reset-pwd" if this is present at boot time, device passwords only will be reset
5. from cmd line do
rm -rf /conf/* config_tool -s config_tool -s reboot
Please note none of the above will change the opperating mode back to stock. To return to stock mode, win-homebrew-stockify.bat
Also there is a 2nd writable area on Gen3 devices, this is still being researched.
The homebrew kit is also capable to launching telnet while under stock firmware.
Windoze Users run win-stock-telnetd.bat
Linux Users select option 6 of linux-homebrew.sh .
