Updating omnia firmware

Wi Fi Routers are the gateway for every home and business Internet network.Though they are the mainstay behind your Internet connection so little has been done or thought about their security.Wasting no time, some chefs have already cooked up some custom ROMs for the HD2 (which will evidently live until the year 2031 with updates) and the Samsung Omnia7.

The first being a firmware update, with the follow-up presumably the Tango upgrade.

Device changes reported are as follows: Just a few weeks before it officially hits, Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh aka "Tango" (build 8773) has managed to be dumped onto XDA for the world to see (and use).

Das Update installiert auch einen Client für ein neues Software-Portal, das viele zusätzliche Anwendungen für das i900 Omnia bietet.

Im sogenannten Application Download findet man neue Programme sortiert in Kategorien wie Office, Games, Security oder Bestseller und sie direkt auf das i900 herunterladen.

You need to have installed gcc, binutils, bzip2, flex, python, perl, make, find, grep, diff, unzip, gawk, getopt, subversion, libz-dev and libc headers. It will download all sources, build the cross-compile toolchain, the kernel and all choosen applications.

Run "./scripts/feeds update -a" to get all the latest package definitions defined in / default respectively and "./scripts/feeds install -a" to install symlinks of all of them into package/feeds/. You can use "scripts/flashing/flash.sh" for remotely updating your embedded system via tftp. You will need a La Te X distribution and the tex4ht package to build the documentation. To build your own firmware you need to have access to a Linux, BSD or Mac OSX system (case-sensitive filesystem required).If you look at an average router you can buy from a shop, it comes with firmware that is not designed to ever be updated.But routers are quite easy to hack and there have been a lot of examples in the past of vulnerabilities that have never been fixed.Cygwin will not be supported because of the lack of case sensitiveness in the file system. With all the Windows Phone "Tango" update madness that's currently underway, whether you're forcing the upgrade or receiving it from the carrier, there's a number of networks pushing out the latest version of Microsoft's operating system.Now it seems someone has woken up to the dangers of vulnerable routers.
