Welcome

Flasher

Eventually, after a lot of hacking, I ended up with a kernel and filesystem that booted into the SIP-supporting hacked image. The nasty thing about it was that it took a Linux-machine, a WiFi-connection, an USB-connection and a serial connection to do it that way. I decided to look into the official SMC flashing tool. While the WSKP100 flasher seemed to work with unusable flash-images, probably to protect the Skype binaries, the SMCWSP100 flasher worked with plain old unencrypted binaries. Because I fiddled with the partitions the flash is divided in, I had to adjust the offset various files were written to. Luckily, these were available in plain old ascii in the flasher file. After a bit of testing, I had a tool to flash phones to my hacked version of the firmware.

You're probably itching to try the tool and firmware yourself now, so if you want to download it, it's here (15MB). Some people have reported that the WLAN-chip inside the phone gets a MAC of FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF; unfortunately I haven't found a fix for that yet. If you can tell me where the MAC on these phones is stored, please do. The source of my version of the kernel (Warning: quick hack!) is downloadable too (44MB).

I still will try and develop my own software for this nice device, when I have some time on my hands. For now, this hacked-together firmware is a nice stopgap, and a cost-effective at it: I've seen the official SIP-version of this phone for twice the price I bought this one for.

This is the current location of the firmware: http://www.mmnt.net/db/0/0/80.250.85.6/Accton_Edge-Core/VoIP/WM4101_SIP/firmware/V0.9.12.12 Microsoft has updated the desktop and mobile versions of Skype in such a way that it broke compatibility with this phone. The phone starts in a low bandwidth codec and after a few seconds (when there is enough bandwidth) it goes to a high bandwidth codec. After the Skype update only the PC or app user can hear the other side after it switches to high bandwidth.

Can it still use Skype after your hack?

Anyone noticed the file "homefs32m.jffs2.raw" missing from the hack-v1.zip file? It is listed in the Flasher.INI file. I did find one from Accton that works, but I would like to know if Sprite's is more efficient. It seems Acctons does not use WPA2 and it doesn't seem to like connecting via WPA either (AES or TKIP).

Hi I have the Belkin phone - I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong... I wonder if you can help me ? Here's what I did... * Run original Belkin firmware update tool - click next to page which says have your phone disconnected from USB * Run your update tool. Program directories have been created. Tool runs. * Tool recognises USB device , and begins to download firmware. * Normally the progress bars go from 0% to 100% several times. Here , it does that once , and then the progress bar does not show any bars. It still says downloading data. This is where it locks up - I left it overnight to run and it was stuck in the same position in the morning. Is there anything immediately obvious I can look at to help solve the problem? Thanks Lloyd

The /etc/resolv.conf linked to a non-existing /opt/home/default dir, so dns lookups didn\'t work, although DNS server was set correctly and confirmed by the phone\'s network stats.

Finally got it working after about 12 hours.. 1. did what Michael wrote at 30 Aug 2007, 19.38: 2. setup wifi and wireshark network analyser 3. telnet to device port 2323. 4. remove and replace stale symlink /etc/resolv.conf or put ip alias for sip host in /etc/hosts 5. updated /opt/home/sip.conf because it still had old settings even when a new sip profile was set on the phone or in /opt/home/Settings/sipprofile.conf I had to fill in all settings,but stun, before the phone would even try to register. (6) put wifi AP at 9,18 or 36mbit and beacon interval 1000ms for health purposes ;). Thanks Sprite, now there is super quality sound without pops and cracking as with the skype fw.

I am having the same issue as Simon- Belkin F1PP000GN-SK. The Flash software will not recognize that it's connected even though it is recognized by Windows as a Disk Drive named "Linux File-Stor Gadget USB Device". Anybody have any ideas on how to get the Sip firmware onto this phone? Seems like the flash app is looking for something other than the device as recognized by Windows? Thanks in advance!

I have a Belkin F1PP000GN-SK with firmware 2.0.0.37 (that\'s what it came with when new). I run the flasher, any version, I plug the phone it, and it is never seen by the flasher - it stays at the \'Waiting for USB Connection\' screen all the time. The phone itself is recognised by Windows (as a storage device it seems, but without a drive being assigned to it), and the phone lights up with the battery icon when plugged in to the USB. I am running Windows 7. I have also tried with a VMWare image of Windows XP, and I get exactly the same. What am I doing wrong?

I am thinking about doing some additional changes like recompiling busybox to provide wget functionality (in order to provide web-based login). Also, I found that the 1 Meg "hosts" file you found unnecessary still exists in the distribution. Do you think I can delete it to get more space for ringtones etc?

You rock. It is absolutely amazing what you have done. I'm totally into smartphones because they are the future of telecommuting. Is it possible to create a program like this one for say the G1 Android phone? Since it runs on a 3G network, you're always connected at broadband speeds. Think of it, essentially free phone service for the price of a Data plan. Data plans are getting cheaper all the time. There is currently an app that was created for the G1 to access Skype. If you could create one to access a MagicJack account, you would blow past anyone out there. Here's the info for the G1 app to use a Skype account. Company: iSkoot Inc. Application: iSkoot for Skype Price: Free "If your business uses Skype, software that lets you make telephone calls over the Internet, iSkoot will give you the ability to use all of its features with your Android handset. Make Skype calls, view your contacts, chat, and even place calls to other phones anywhere in the world." Again, you seriously rock. Good luck if you decide to take on this project and please keep us all up to date. Thanks.

sthacher wrote at 19 Oct 2008, 22.27:

Well this took a little bit of work to get it to flash mostly because the howto sucks I mean great hack but some key things are missing in the howto. And there is a file name that needs to be changed and a ini file that needed to be edited. I have done all this and repacked the files needed to flash the phone. I ended up using my flashed phone with macgicjack phone service. I just happen to own a site called magicjackhacks.com I have the fixed packages there hyper links in the order that are need to be used. So if you want pop on over there and check it out you can just ignore the parts that tell you how to configure it for use with magicjack. Again though this is really really good software hack thanks again

adriano wrote at 11 Jun 2008, 22.17:

Hi Brian, the firmware provided by Belkin is encrypted, no way to extract it. You can connect to phone via 3-wire serial line but you have to: 1. take a 10x lens to see pads on conn1 2. buy a mini soldering iron, stain and teflon wires 3. use it patiently (i've spend four hours to build it) 4. solder the 3 wires to an external Berg-type connector when you close Belkin again, then you must start create a 1.8 volt serial adaptor. I used a PL2303 based usb-to-serial cable with a 10 kilohm resistor on RX and TX. It was hard but now i have u-boot messages in minicom :-)

Helene wrote at 25 May 2008, 17.48:

I have a Belkin phone. It works with sip (My provider Internetcalls). But my phone doesn't work with DNS, so I didn't write names, but wrote IP-addresses.

Brian wrote at 22 May 2008, 5.18:

I should have tried this first but I'm running Linux. After running the flasher exe in windows, I got the familiar C:windowstempSkypyPhone directory. The Belkin firmware is probably encrypted because it's a skype-only version but I figure I'll dig around anyway. @ Sprite are you using the supplied gcc/glibc/binutils to compile the kernel?

Brian wrote at 22 May 2008, 4.22:

Is there an easy way to extract the Belkin firmware from the exe supplied, or can it be pulled from the device? If pulling it from the device, I'm going to have to assume that you would need to be connected via serial, though I'm not very clear on what's involved. I'd like to extract the Belkin jffs2 image (assuming they assembled their firmware similarly to SMC's) so I can modify it.

adriano wrote at 12 May 2008, 17.16:

If you plan to reload all rootfs.raw, you can assign any MAC address with: ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 ifconfig eth0 hw ether 01:23:45:67:89:ab for example in your /etc/network/if-pre-up/setmac. I't worked for me.

Jorg wrote at 22 Apr 2008, 19.52:

Dutch, Sprite. No, I didn't even try. I think it will be difficult without Sprites response. Wouldn't it be possible to simply compress his development directory? As adriano pointed out, the MAC address is within the environment variables, so it should be possible to change it. However, once you've got your phone running and logged on to any wireless network, you can also log in via telnet on port 2323, so no need for a serial connection! I discovered this by mounting the jffs2 file from the firmware update on my linux machine. See http://maemo.org/community/wiki/modifyingrootimage/ to discover how this can be done.

Dutch wrote at 17 Apr 2008, 20.27:

Jorg, did you manage to compile the firmware? I;m desperate in seek of a way to get about 20 phone working for a test, but the 'fixed' MAC prevents me from doing this. Also, it's just a real pain to open every single phone and make the serial connection work. The resolv.conf problem is a no issue here, we use IP to connect anyway, but I really need someway to get different MAC addresses on it. Sprite don;t have the time atm as he told me.

when one uses hacked_v1_ff-mac-fix.zip from sprite everything works except SIP. This is because /etc/resolv.conf is missing and therefore DNS is not available even if you don't use DHCP. Type cd /etc ln âs ../opt/home/default/resolv.conf . and reboot the phone. This should fix cocoboco17's problem

FSAT wrote at 29 Jan 2008, 8.52:

Flashed my phone tonight - Yeah! Took a lot of trial and error, but here are the nuggets I felt would help others: 1) As said by others, it is necessary to first upgrade your phone to the latest firmware even if it is the same as on your phone. This will get a number of tools not in the .zip file installed. 2) When the firmware updater is starting to run, navigate to where the updater was "installed". Note: the installer only puts the flash updater in this location temporarily (for the duration that the flash updater is running). You need to capture the flash updater before it is erased by the installer. The way I did this was to copy the Flasher directory to a different directory while the Flasher was "waiting" for my phone to be connected. BTW: The Flasher directory will be in the %SystemRoot%TempSkypyPhone where %SystemRoot% is where your system volume and directory are installed. Mine %SystemRoot% is C:WIN2K02 (long story) so the directory was C:WIN2K02TempSkypyPhone. You do NOT need to actually install the firmware on the phone, but you DO need to have the installer and flash updater startup so you can copy the directory. After copying the directory, cancel out of the flash updater and go on to the next step. 3) Now that the flash updater has been captured in a different directory, copy the flash updater to the %SystemRoot%/Temp/SkypyPhone/Flasher directory again. You will need to run the flash updater again. Since it is not running under the installer provided by SMC, it will not be uninstalled/erased like it was in step 2. This is important as running the flash updater again is needed to install a number of support files required by the hack. 4) Now move the Flasher directory to a different name. This is done so the files in the hack .zip can be put a directory that has the same name as used by the flash updater in step 3. 5) Now unzip the hack .zip file into the Flasher directory. HAVING THE EXACT SAME DIRECTORY NAME AS IN STEP 3 IS IMPORTANT! Also, don't just unzip the files into the same directory that the SMC flash updater was placed into. 6) Update the Flasher.INI file to reflect the directory the files were placed into. This means replacing the C:WINNT with your %SystemRoot%. 7) Rename the FlashWriterNOR-new.out file to FlashWriterNOR-PNcheck-strncmp.out. This is necessary if you are using the flash updater included with the V1.0.0.22P1 firmware. You will also need to update the Flasher.INI file. 8) Finally run the Flasher.exe file included with the hack, hooking up your phone WHEN TOLD TO DO SO. The Flash process will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete once started. Hope this helps someone -- it took me about 3 hours of trial and error to get the flash update to work, including unbricking the phone 4 times... (See earlier posts for the battery trick to do this).

With this new hack, will I be able to use sms text message through my skype phone. Because I see that sip allows it, but just have not read anything about it on this phone (I was highly disappointed to find out it did not allow sms). If so, does it work descent with it. Soon as i hear good news, I will be converting. Thanks!

V1 also worked but my fonera router doesent like the FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF broadcast adress mac adress. With V2/FF mac fix i can connect to my to WLAN and my voip provider. Only thing that doesent work right now is outbound calls but will try other WLAN today.

To charge the battery you need to plug in the usb, then switch off the phone (you will see battery image). You can either leave it off to charge or switch back on and it will charge.

Anyone with the Belkin need only do the following: 1.Delete "Flasher" folder WINDOWSTempSkypyPhone(do this every time before flashing to skype) 2. Flash with UK Belkin 1.0.0.10 3. Flash with mac fix (extract "Flasher" folder to WINDOWSTempSkypyPhone directory and run from there) 4. That's it - I recommend as good practice you delete "Flasher" folder after/before each flashing.

Hi SteveG, well... thanks for the tips. So, you are not running on a Belkin model :-( I will not flash with version V2 --> This version is not appropriate for a Belkin phone. Flashing with that version is not reversible on a Belkin phone. (I read it here in this discution). Well, does somebody already has crack a Belkin phone??? If yes, please tell us how. Thanks.

SteveG wrote at 4 Jan 2008, 23.07:

Hi Clincks, I don't have a really good step-by-step yet because I was quickly trying very many things trying to get it to work. Basics steps were: 1. flash with SMC official skype latest firmware. 2. flash with hack V2 (mac fix version) 3. flash with hack V1 (original version. It's not that easy I tried best as possible to closely follow both Matthew & Michael's instructions above. It's a very tricky mess to work through and regardless of all the great efforts here from all it's still not very clear at all what exactly you have to do. And I'm not a great help either. Kind of like hey I got it working and now I'll just run away haha! Also keep in mind that I have the SMC version hardware. Belkin might be slightly different... I don't know. For now do what you need to do to get Hack V2 to flash on your phone and then try to boot it once, wait 5 minutes... you shold see the 'sun' screen but it won't go past that. Now remove the battery and usb. Now conect the usb and try to flash hack V1 hook plug on the battery while it is trying to communicate. Do what you need to do to now get hack V1 to flash. This is what I did and it worked.... Sorry I do not have a good step-by-step. I still don;t really understand exactly what I did to make it work. Steve

However after flashing hack V2 (same won't get past bootloader problem) and then flashing Hack v1 right after. All is well! I'm not sure what really gives here... like where I/we are messing up the process.

Make sure you are running the hacked firmware from WINDOWSTempSkypyPhone otherwise you may get "image not found " error. Also, make sure you always delete that directory (the Flasher folder) before extracting the hackware to it and also before running the skype installer.

However I didn't get a MAC address, i think, the network settings section was just blank. I forgot to read the bit about upgrading to the latest Skype firmware, which I am attempting now but it doesn't seem to boot.

I have the Belkin and have flashed to the Mac fix(nonFF) and back to skype several times. However, I have the UK version - this may matter because I tried to flash from the Mac fix to the US version once (to see where the 1mb went) and it froze on the boot screen. I then flashed the UK version and all was well. The US version then flashed successfully from the UK version (just language differences). Many thanks and tributes to Sprite for this brilliant and extremely useful mod.

Mike wrote at 24 Nov 2007, 22.06:

Just a note again to BELKIN users - don't flash your phone with the non-FFed version. This second flash is NOT reversible. You can flash with the original and return to normal (just to check it out safely). Sprites wrote me a reply that said.. "What I think has happened, is that the phone itself is a bit different in its use of the primary partitions. My flash overwrites parts of it, but the original SMC flash will overwrite these parts again with it's own data, so that's no loss. I however think Belkins flash works a tad different and doesn't overwrite it." Cheers again to Sprites for this very cool mod. I returned my phone and got a new one (still under warantee) to resolve the inability to flash back to the original firmware.

The phone looks incredible, the firmware has tons of options. I guess I was so excited to remove the Belkin firmware I did not realize that I would no longer be able to log in to Skype? or am I wrong? From my reading above, I am guessing that installing the Asterisk server would enable the use of this phone? However, I am guessing that would need more hardware and a dedicated computer running 24/7? If anyone knows how I can get Skype service to work on this modded phone I would appreciate your advice.

Early versions of the SIP firmware from SMC where compatible with the WSKP100 and could be obtained from Accton (ftp.accton.com.tw dir /Maggie/SIPPhone/). v.9.12.12 was the last firmware for 16MB that I found newer versuieons where 32MB. This SIP firmware listens to Telnet on port 2323. This release is also compatibale with the Qtopia Desktop (on my Mac). This is very handy for managing your contacts. Its great to hear your story and what skills you had to use to achieve your goal. I definitely will give your firmwate a go sometime soon.

I have also tried VoipStunt and disabled firewalls etc. But still unable to call the SMC sprite-tm hacked phone. My feeling is that there is something missing from the firmware upgrade (I used the mac fixed version), I also wonder if the potentially missing bits will blow the 16Mb if incorporated. I've reflashed with Skype firmare as a 2-way device is more useful for me at this time. However I'll re-visit this very helpful forum for any new developments or advice on getting incoming calls working.

slope - I have exactly the same symptoms, Sipgate and no incoming calls and also need to use ip addresses. I am using port 0 of which I presume means automatic and when I dial another sipgate number the call is coming in from port 5060. Whilst the firmware is better than the Skype (thanks to Sprite-tm) it does rather limit the phones potential. Has anyone managed incoming call if so what provider/settings?

slope wrote at 29 Sep 2007, 20.48:

Many thanks madeira for the info - because the phone has problems with written ip addresses, these are the settings for sipgate: Domain/Proxy IP : 217.10.79.23 Port : 5060 Register IP : 217.10.79.23 Register Port : 5060 Outbound Proxy IP : 217.10.79.23 Outbound Proxy Port : 5060 STUN : 217.10.79.2 STUN Port : 10000 Phone Number : Your SIP ID User Name : Your SIP ID Password : Your SIP password These settings work but I currently can't receive incoming calls to the sipgate number. This may be a port forwarding issue - any ideas or info greatly appreciated.

Madeira, thanks for your update, time zone is now set correctly. I'm still investigating the battery problem, just returned home and the battery was flat, which may indicate that it was not charging, I've switch it off and left it charging. Like you said the Belkin units seem to be the most common, for those people in the UK, PcWorld have reduced the price down to £59, so its a real bargin Voip handset. I'm well impressed with the call quality, it will be interesting to see how it performs next week when I'm in India calling home to the UK.

Duncan, my Belkin is working ok on channel 11. About the timezone, It's a little triky but you have to select the "More" in the dropdown list (where is Taipei, if I remember well) than you have to select the map and than navigate with the joystick until you get your preferred city. Finally to be honest I didn't notice the battery problem (at the moment I reverted to Skype firmware so I can't check now). Last, looking at the last posts it seems that Belkin phones are having much more "supporters" than SMC... Ciao

Duncan wrote at 29 Sep 2007, 12.36:

Good news just updated my Belkin (UK Version) with the hacked MAC version and its all working well. I have noticed the following problems, which hopefully will be fixed in a future version: 1. I had major problems connecting to my wireless router, in the end I had to change the router channel from 10 or 11 to 7 this allowed the Belkin to connect. 2. There's no European TimeZone settings, so its not possible to configure the clock, and the automatic update seems to be locked to 'Active' 3. Battery indicator shows the battery charging, but when off charge the level indicator does not show the battery as full. Apart from these the Sip functionallity is working, I have both VoipBuster & Plus.Net all working. I've not be able to dial international numbers or receive incoming calls using Plus.Net

You need to provide the IP addresses when configuring a VoIP service because network names are not resolved... maybe a problem with DNS? Anyway, through a WEB PBX like VoxaLot or LiberaIlVoip I'm managing incoming and outbound calls. I also took a look at the hacked source code and, please, Sprite_tm provide us more details on the development environment like compiler and other tools and where to obtain them.

Matthew wrote at 30 Aug 2007, 19.55:

Excellent, glad to hear you got things working Michael! The only niggle I have now is that the phone has received the mac address written to ROM by the mac-fix hacked flasher, which means that performing the same hack on the second handset I have will give them both an identical MAC address. Not a problem if you don't want to use more than one at a time on your network, though! Just for the record, I set everything up today to allow me to connect to my Asterisk server and it works just fine, I can call all the other wired SIP phones around the house. Thanks Sprite for this excellent hack, I will have to remember to donate to the tip jar when I get paid again next month :)

Michael wrote at 30 Aug 2007, 19.38:

Sussed it! Sorry Matthew I misunderstood what you had been saying. I thought you meant I had to install SMC firmware fully 1st, not just install and close task down. Here is what I did for others who want to know. The phone is a Belkin Skype Phone. 1. Installed the SOFTWARE for SMC USA version firmware update. I then used task manager to close the flasher app and the installer. This installer creates a directory and files in c:/windows/temp/skpyphone/flasher 2. I then deleted the lot making a note of the filename FlashWriterNOR-PNcheck-strncmp.out which had been created, which is crucial for this to work. 3. In this empty directory, I extracted the hacked mac address update in here. So location again is c:/windows/temp/skpyphone/flasher 4.The important bit was to rename the file in this directory called FlashWriterNOR-new.out with FlashWriterNOR-PNcheck-strncmp.out. 5.I now ran the flasher - all went well with that. All I had though when I turned on the phone was a "frozen" belkin spash screen. Would not fully boot. This was no problem though as Matthew said. 6.Now I extracted the ORIGINAL hack of sprites into this directory c:/windows/temp/skpyphone/flasher. It overwrites some of the other ones but leaves FlashWriterNOR-PNcheck-strncmp.out. there. 7. I ran the flasher, went fine. Turned on the phone and GREAT I have a nice MAC addy which allows me to connect to my router. That's it. I was begining to think becasue I had a belkin phone I was doomed even though it is the same phone. So now it does work even if the process is a bit long winded and not very easy to explain!

The Belkin firmware is not as up to date as the SMC one, so I don't think it will work. There must be a way of forcing the SMC firmware onto my phone. The older versions from the site DO work. It is only the newer one which does not, and it says wrong hardware.

Matthew wrote at 30 Aug 2007, 7.50:

Michael, if you could run the previous hack then the Belkin flasher must be pretty similar. Are you in the US or Europe? If the latter, try going on the US Belkin site and downloading the flasher for the US model of your phone, then retry the original hack. Interestingly, even though the new hack didn't work it did manage to change the MAC address of the phone, as the handset I now have working with the original Sprite hack + american flasher package shows 00:12:01:02:03:04

Michael wrote at 30 Aug 2007, 0.12:

Not sure where it leave me though. I have a belkin Phone. F1PP000GN-SK. I have the latest firmware from Belkin. I cannot install the SMC firmware since the firmware is not allowed on my phone. It says wrong hardware type. I can install the FON firmware (the one with the sun) but not SMC. After trying the new hack I still have mac addy of FF etc. Is there a way of changing the SMC firmware to run on my phone. Bearing in mind the Belkin phone is exactly the same as SMC , with a different colour. The original hack does work but I just get FF mac addy.

Matthew wrote at 29 Aug 2007, 23.35:

Well, that appears to be it! I just downloaded the official Skype firmware (but this time the US version instead of the UK firmware intended for my WSKP100 model), ran it, and then ran with the ORIGINAL sprite hack. The phone now has a MAC!!! :D

Matthew wrote at 29 Aug 2007, 23.14:

After a little more research it appears there is indeed some difference between the UK and US firmware, both are on v1.0.0.19P1 but the SMC site reports the US version as a 15745kb download, yet the UK download package is 15529kb.

Matthew wrote at 29 Aug 2007, 22.41:

Sprite, downloaded the new flasher a few hours ago and have been messing around with it since then. First up, I noticed the readme now advises flashing to the latest Skype firmware before doing anything else, which I did. I then extracted the mac-fix hacked flasher to the correct directory and tried to run, but got the old "image file not found" error that I had previosly encounted by trying to run the program from /winnt instead of /windows. It seems that the official download for the WSKP100 from SMC now cleans up after itself when it finishes - I had to run the official flasher and then force quit via task manager before I could run the hacked flasher without getting the image not found error. I extracted the mac-fix hack for a second time to the necessary directory and tried to run, this time I received an error regarding a missing FlashWriterNOR file. After some tinkering it seems that renaming the FlashWriterNOR-new file included with the hacked package to FlashWriterNOR-PNcheck-strncmp.out as included with the official firmware seems to clear this error and actually allow the flasher to run. So, now the bit you're really interested in. The ROM was successfully written, but on powering on the handset it is nothing more than a rather expensive picture of the sun! It'll just sit at that point for as long as you leave it and never get any further in the boot process. Luckily it doesn't brick and phone and its still possible to flash back, the handset will still accept and run with the original hacked firmware (albeit with an unusable MAC address). Could this perhaps be an issue with some subtle difference with the WSKP100 you have for testing and the WSKP100UK handset that I (and presumably others) are using?

Sprite_tm wrote at 29 Aug 2007, 17.58:

Ok, I've finished a version of the code that'll change the MAC to 00:12:01:02:03:04 if it finds a mac of all FFs. If you want to, you can try it; be sure to read the readme though! File is at http://sprite.student.utwente.nl/~jeroen/tmp/wskp/hacked_v1_ff-mac-fix.zip . Reports of (non-)working phones are appreciated, as always.

Has anybody tried the reverese, to put WSKP100 (Skype) firmware into a SMCWSP-100 (SIP) phone. Is it possible and reversible? If I can help somehow with the MAC problem as I have an original SMCWSP-100 just ask.

Michael wrote at 28 Aug 2007, 22.59:

@rstefani. Yes the software does work. The flash update works and the software is installed. However in order to connect to an Access Point (wireless router) the phone has to have a MAC address other then FF:FF:FF:FF:FF . This address will not connect to a router at all, since it is a broadcast address used for other purposes. So as to it working yes it does, but it's not of much use right now. Unless you want World time or a calculator. Because the software looks so good on the phone, resembeling more of a mobile phone than skype does with its silly noises, I have left it on, and abandoned Skype altogether since I cannot face downgrading! Leaves me without a VOIP phone, but it does look rather cool as is, even if it doesn't connect to the internet. I am just anxiously awaiting some sort of fix, when that appears I will give the tip jar a good boost.

Matthew wrote at 27 Aug 2007, 22.45:

I have no idea what I must have been drinking, but my typing was absolutely atrocious at the time I wrote that! 115200 was one of the bitrates I tried (and not the 155200 I seem to have invented) but I still didn't manage to get anything useful from the handset. I took the pinouts for the serial header from the GPL devices WIKI, but looking at the revision history it seems that the connections have mysteriously moved from pins 1, 4 and 5 to 1, 5 and 6. Maybe I'll have another crack at it some time! I'm not sure how TD-er set a MAC address in software, but I had just planned to run ifconfig and set it that way. I assume the same thing can be done using HWADDR in the eth configuration file.

Sprite_tm wrote at 27 Aug 2007, 20.15:

Matthew: It's 115200, 8n1, no flow control. You sure you connect the right wires? Anyway, I'll see if I can make something like a fallback-random-mac-generator-thingy so the firmware will get a mac regardless of if a mac is found or not. TD-er: When and how exactly did you give the mac to the phone?

Matthew wrote at 27 Aug 2007, 17.06:

TD-er, I assume you used the serial console to set a MAC address? I had the idea of doing the same thing yesterday, but have been unable to initiate a working console connection with the phone. What settings did you use for the serial port on your PC? I've tried 4800,9600,19200,58400,155200bps with and without flor control (all 8N1) and only managed to get gibberish from the port.

Michael wrote at 27 Aug 2007, 15.13:

Thanyou Td-er for your reply. I looked at VOIPbuster and it looks great and offers better deals than skype. However since Im still stuck with the MAC address problem , I cannot use it which is a real shame. Any idea Sprite if you would be able to resolve this issue in the near future? or possibly any work around?

TD-er wrote at 27 Aug 2007, 14.11:

@Michael: With SIP you can connect to a VoIP-provider like VoIPBuster (voipbuster.com), or any other VoIP-provider which allows you to call landlines. It is also compatible with Asterisk, which is a free PBX. The problem with the FF:FF:...:FF MAC-address is caused by the different locations used for storing the mac-address. I've tested with assigning a MAC-address to the eth-port and then it is possible to make a connection. So perhaps it is a sollution to adapt the UI so a MAC-address can be entered by hand.

Michael wrote at 23 Aug 2007, 23.59:

It works for the Belkin Phone as well, I'm sure many will be interested in that. However the MAC address is FF:FF:FF:FF:FF and thus it will not connect to my home network router. The software is much better than skype. However I must admit I have no idea what SIP actually is or does apart from I have found I can run a home server for it and have found a windows version server also. When the MAC addy problem is fixed I will look at this again since the features are so much better than skype's.

Could be that the files have to be (literally) in c:winntTempSkypyphoneFlasher. You could try and change the .ini-file to reflect that your windows-directory is on your H:, but I'm not sure if that's gonna work. It could be too that it'll default to the temp-dir of your Windows-install; you'd have to extract the files to H:windowstempSkypyphoneFlasher then.

Pretty cool stuff, It's quite scary how many commercial devices are secretively shipping with Linux onboard. Still, I would have so much fun messing around with a device like that.. I'd likely do something silly.. (Like port BSD!! :D :D :D)

Excellent mod. I am interested in zfone and encrypted VOIP for my office. Any chance this can be implemented easily into this hack? Swiss Gadgets <a href="http://www.swissgadgets.com">http://www.swissgadgets.com</a>

LiamM: It does; it displays everything the WSKP100 does. Maurice: You'd have to expand the flash for that, actually, and I doubt you could hack the two programs (SIP and Skype) to work together nicely. I'd suggest looking into something like Skype2SIP-gateway first. TD-er: I just checked and the option is available in the menu. The firmware version I used seems to support it out of the box, I haven't meddled with that.

The original WSKP100 only supports 128-bits and 64-bits WEP. Does your modified firmware also support WPA?

Now if we could only expand the RAM, and run BOTH Skype and SIP on it.. Ooohhh...

Does the screen on the SMC still function. If so what is diplayed on it/what functionality does it provide?
