Regarding the tar file with the source code.  Does anyone know how you can compile it to flash the G1100?  I see that if you uncompress all the folders you have a bunch of folders with code.  Some you can run make on, but others you can't.  So, what do you make it a firmware file for upload to the router?

My FiOS G1100 router has:

Firmware Version

02.00.01.08

 

I see on the Open SOurce page 

Does any have instructions on how to apply the .tar file to the G1100 router?

 

EDIT:  I found this link http://192.168.1.1/#/advanced/fwupgrade gets you to the right place.  Now I just need the right FW file for 2.10.07

swieder - have you found the answer?

And is 2.00.010.07 noticeably better than 02.00.01.08?

nm ... i see it mentioned here that the tarball is the source and needs compilation suitable for upload/flash...  will continue searching for instructions to convert tarball to flashable bin ...

 

--orig q below ... duplicate.

this is my hardware.

UI Version: v1.0.294

Firmware Version: 02.00.01.08

Model Name: FiOS-G1100

Hardware Version: 1.03

 

and i am trying to update the router firmware  using

https://www.verizon.com/cs/groups/public/documents/adacct/bhr4_release_02_02_00_14.tar

 

the ok button to upload does not appear to be functional after selecting the tarball

on this page http://192.168.1.1/#/advanced/fwupgrade

 

Do i have to extract the tarball and upload individual files. Seems to many....

 

thank you in advance for any pointers.

There is no ability for a user to flash Verizon routers.  All firmware updates are pushed from the Verizon infrastructure.  Even if you could build an image, you can't load it.

 

Further, you can't build an image.  The publicly available code is the open source code in the router.  There most likely is proprietary code in the image as well, such as for the various network hardware blocks.  Any proprietary code isn't in the tarball.  I suspect there are security certificates in the image used for TR-069 and similar.  The SoC may also use a secure boot process, which means the image needs to be digitally signed.  If you don't have the public key for the digital signature, you can't make a bootable image.  I doubt Verizon makes the public key, well, public.

 

I could be wrong about this, but from what I've seen the publicly available code is missing a lot of pieces.  If you're able to figure out how to build an image and flash it without going through Verizon's servers you'll be the darling of the router hacking world.

Good Luck.
