Re: [Cable] DCM-475 firmware upgrades, anyone?

said by Nagilum:

It's my understanding that the firmware is not publicly available.

Even if the firmware was found in the wild, cablecos disable the management GUI on modems so there is no user-accessible interface to update it with unless you count JTAG.

I imagine that the internal debug interface (looks like some form of SPI on a 4-pin connector) can be used to (1) extract 02.16 from a newer modem, and then (2) flash it into the older modem.

So "in the wild" isn't a huge issue. Just wondering if anyone knows someone who does this. I do recall seeing a post somewhere from a chap in the Toronto area who was doing this kind of thing.

Cheers
