TP-Link 16Mb SPI Flash esp for OpenWRT   Leave a comment

Using a replacement SPI 16Mb / 128Mbit IC W25Q128FVSSIG you can upgrade the flash in a WR703N / MR3040 / WR720N / MR10U / MR11U / MR13U from 4Mb-8Mb to 16Mb.

The W25Q128FVSSIG is commonly available on aliexpress for a dollar each. And uniqiely, it’s a 200 mil SOP8 not the usual 16 pin that 16 mbyte IC’s are, so it’s pin-for pin with the original SPI IC.. Check W25Q128FV on winbond site.

You need a modified bootloader to recognise it however.(start with https://github.com/pepe2k/u-boot_mod ) as well as a build of openwrt for 16MB flash for your platform.

You can use a dirt-cheap CH341A usb programmer along with a socket for SOP8′s and an adapter board to get data in and out of the SPI to prepare it.

I’ll try and add more detail here about what’s needed, where to get it and how much.

But the most important thing is the SPI programmer.. for less that $50 you’re stuck with CH341A.

And after days of searching I found a driver/software combo that supports 16mbyte SPI.

Programmer – driver – CH341A v1.12

Life, and Ubiquiti Compliance Test   1 comment

Living hell as a shell right now, in the aftermath of a year-long self-induced destruction of my mind, personality and life.

Completely lost it and fell into a world of paranoid psychosis and self-delusion.

At least I don’t believe I’m possessed anymore. And I’m not imagining self-realities to make people want to kill me.

 

Anyhow,

 

Ubiquiti canned compliance test mode in their latest AirOS. You should still be able to reenable it by:

  • Login: UBNT, password: UBNT
  • select country Bolivia
  • upgrade to 5.5.8
  • after the upgrade log in the website again and we reset to default

2 After a reset to factory settings

  • log in through putty (address 192.168.1.20)
  • create a file with the command: touch /etc/ persistent/ ct
  • then the command: save
  • then: reboot

3 After the restart

  • at first logon the website, select the country “compliance test” instead of Bolivia

Outlook.com / Hotmail / Live Mail – Room for improvement   Leave a comment

New MS Hotmail / Outlook.com is a bit overbloated with script and active content but everything’s like that n0w I spose.

Despite the fat causing browsers to suffer resource bloat, therefore making it costly to leave a tab open for Hotmail while browsing, it’s still quite good.

It could do with room to improve though.

Here’s some suggestions, blogged so I can pass them to the devs; the feedback form isn’t much chop with limited chars and no provision for a two-way dialog or issue tracking functionality..

INBOX WORKFLOW / KEYBOARD ACCELERATORS

When reading email from the Inbox, after selecting a message, (and the content then showing in the reading pane), the space-bar doesn’t work to scroll down-page in the reading pane.
It did behave that way in the past.
Obviously this small keyboard shortcut/feature is very useful when wading through a full inbox!
An ideal scenario which is not currently possible for reading an inbox with many new messages would be the provising of keyboard accelerators for a workflow similar to this:
-Beginning in the reading pane..
-Shift-tab from Reading Pane back up to the currently active email in the Message List,
-Then arrow down to the next email, with it then displaying in reading pane
-Press tab to make reading pane active
-Space-bar and/or arrow up/down through the message
-Tab or Shift Tab back to Message List when done
-Press delete, ctrl-m for move, or one of a number of other appropriate accelerators for common actions to deal with the message
-Return highlight/selection to the next email down in the Msg List
-Tab down to the Reading Pane

Firefox Addons: Remember Passwords   Leave a comment

I found another Firefox “Remember Passwords” addon.. here’s the two that I know of that can work instead of, or in conjunction with, my patched omni.ja.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/remember-passwords/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/rememberpass/

They run together fine, not sure if they redundantly overlap but I don’t care, whatever helps remember the damned passwords..

UPDATE:

New addon , AustCompleteAnywhere..- <a title="AutocompleteAnywhere" href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autocompleteanywhere">https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/autocompleteanywhere</a>
