Recently I joined Xtra on the pro Plan, and got a Thompson router I don't need.I thought that since it's dual voltage, I could give it to my in-laws who live in the US when I visit, but in checking the UI briefly, it looks like it's running Telecom-specific firmware.Does anyone know if I can obtain a more generic version of the firmware for this router?
TG585V7? This is the only one i can find, seems to be a scarce resource: http://www.thomson.net/GlobalEnglish/customer-service/SpeedTouchDocuments/firmware_UK_gen_TG585v7_en_7-4-4-7.zip It's a UK version however. *disclaimer goes here*
Non-standard firmware for these modems will be difficult to find, as they're updated automatically (without customer interaction) via the Telecom ACS server and you'd probably be really likely to brick your router. This is the same as the 2wire Business routers.
They can be unlocked, however it's hardly a walk in the park.
