Features that do not exist on Gen3 firmware

NETAPPS

WDTVext

CIFS Interceptor

Files Created by Boot Process

There will be 2 files created by boot process and placed on the same USB drive as the firmware

sysconfig.patched

and one of the following

boot.rootfs - is created if booting rootfs
boot.root-tag.* - is created if booting tagged firmware
boot.firmware - is created if booting normal firmware release
No-Firmware-Found - is created if no firmware file was found


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.

Stock Telnet

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 .
