VMWare Workstation 12.5.0 (Windows) Direct Links   Leave a comment

Here are some links directly into the URLs accessed by the Workstation client in it’s inbuilt update mechanism. Sadly it’s the only way offered to update an install (other than download the full installer and do an over-the-top.) An isolated host is in trouble. Plus, the UI update process transmits a lot of data back to VMWare you may not be comfortable with.

TP-Link 16Mb SPI Flash esp for OpenWRT   1 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   6 comments

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

Software Defined Radio – SDR… it rocks!   Leave a comment

Got myself a Realtek 2832U a.k.a RTLSDR DVB Dongle a while ago.. got sick of list listening to police/fire/ambo’s etc (cool as that is) so now I’m after more!’

I’ll write up the local frequencies in use here when I get a chance, sadly there’s no simple ‘scanner’ application for these radios yet so it’s manual ‘scope staring to find signals.

There’s not a lot of FM voice around but heaps of chips and whistles all over the place.. that means data!
Aha.. something I can sniff..
Now this isn’t easy or commonly done, there are few complete codesets around that do anything like what I want. A shame I can’t code, but I’ll try and do what I can with what’s around.
