Re: Someone post latest sb6120 firmware?

said by InvalidError:

From what was said in another thread, it seems some firmware versions are on some sort of "don't touch" status and require modem replacement... this is where the ability to JTAG a new firmware in place can become useful if someone can find a firmware image.

I'd like some really authoritative confirmation that Rogers will automatically flash SB612x units. I doubt it myself. In the other thread, the cerebus summed up what has happened so far:
»Re: [Cable] Speed matching and SB612x retired from rogers networ
The end of that was Rogers doing a "one time" push of new working firmware to all connected SB612x units. While it is possible that the push is still on, so to speak, I expect it is not. It may be that Rogers will do another push sometime in the future, but I don't think Teksavvy can do much to encourage it.

I know in the case of the DCM425 the ST52.05.45 firmware won't sync with Rogers. I would pay real money for a way to update those modems to a factory firmware that works with Rogers (note: I can flash them to haxorware, but I'm not about to widely distribute modems like that).

In the case of the surfboards, I think all firmwares at least sync, so there is a chance to have Rogers update them eventually. The DCM425s are basically garbage, really annoying!

Just a confirmation that my SB6120 got provisioned successfully yesterday with the 1.0.3.5 firmware. Woke up this morning with the 1.0.6.1 firmware.

Did TekSavvy ask you which firmware you had, or did you ask them for Rogers to push new firmware?

I was under the impression that modem firmware update was automatic in the sense that rogers doesn't "push" the firmware but rather the cmts detects the modem is using an older firmware and automatically takes action to remedy the issue by sending the new firmware and then the modem will either accept it or reject the firmware.

Sounds like what happened, ya. More confirmation that this happens would be good though. Also, not to be argumentative, but Rogers equipment updating firmware without end customer intervention is pretty much the definition of Rogers pushing a firmware.

maybe but thats not true for the 6121
and they definitely pushed out 1.0.6.1 to individual teksavvy customers at the start of the fix.
the problem was rogers pushed out bad firmware at first to all 6120's.
i had a 6120 running on rogers and I tried to get them to push the update to me and they told me they could ban my 6120 and i should sign up for a 3rd party if i want to use it... .
i have my 6121 here in waterloo running 1.0.5.0, and i had another unprovisioned 6120 running on the line that used to be acanac cable.
then they decided to mass update to 1.0.6.1 the two 6210 modems got the update, and the teksavvy 6121 did not.

No and no. They did not ask, and I did not request (but am glad they did).

They updated unprovisioned modems? That isn't happening now, I can say that for certain

That's surprising. Thanks for the info though, miji2! It will be very helpful.

I'm just wondering though, I haven't yet tried a "factory reset" of my SB6120 from the Gui. I have however done a GUI reboot once or twice since I've had it. I'm advoiding the factory reset option unless I can be sure its SAFE and that its not going to put me in a position where the firmware gets messed up. Mine's only been online since Sept.

What I am going to do tomorrow is shut my whole system down anyways. And plug the modem directly into a wall socket instead of the UPS and see if that helps any. At least that'll be one less thing to have to troubble shoot.

Only thing I'd be worrying about is a brief brownout condition but I don't think I'll be too concerned about that til spring when the lightning stuff is usually nastier; not that winters don't have any.

Factory reset does not revert to any old version of firmware.

Well then this definitely contradicts some of the info from the Acanac forums, that Rogers is not provisioning modems with firmware other than 1.0.6.1.

Fuqn Rogers.
