So I have a freebox v6 player motherboard with an Intel atom inside and I can't find a way to flash the firmware. To replace it with a linux distribution. Any ideas ?
I think I will have to touch directly to the memory, I have never done that
Please boost :)
@PhieLaidMignon c'pas legal pour rappel

@PhieLaidMignon Find out if you have NOR or NAND flash and then get a hardware flasher.
I'm not sure how to find it ?
@PhieLaidMignon Can you take a photo of one of those memory modules close enough I can read the name printed on it?
Is it enough ? Thanks
@PhieLaidMignon @slightlyflightyone i don't know, but what about the three chips close from connector U44 and oscillator x13 ?
Oscillator x13 isn't it for true second clock ? (If it is really an oscillator).
I believe other oscillators are too close from interfaces, ethernet, usb, hdmi, …
I also believe that firmware is Bios and that it needs an oscillator. ^^
@jybz @slightlyflightyone someone talked about a JTAG https://anticapitalist.party/@teslas_moustache/100940410726748206
@PhieLaidMignon @Chakiral @slightlyflightyone so I'm looking at those 4 pins on a white plastic rectangle just to the right of that black...connector for whatever the hell that is. I'm pretty sure those are your JTAG pins, which you should be able to use to write directly to memory. That's sometimes what you use on routers to flash custom firmware like DD-WRT, though you should def see if you can connect via USB, Ethernet or anything else first.
@teslas_moustache ok I see so I have to connect something here ?
@PhieLaidMignon @Chakiral @slightlyflightyone OK, cool. So, without holding the device and messing with it, I can't tell exactly what you need to do, but plug it in and dig around in the settings. You probably need to get to the bootloader. Look into the protocols like telnet, SSH, and tftp to try and gain console access. See if you can read and write files to the system.
