My RaspberryPI has arrived

Yay! After around 4 months of waiting, it is finally here. My very own Raspberry PI 🙂

It appears I received a rev2 board which, among other small improvements, should feature 512MB of RAM instead of 256.

The board comes packed in a nice neat pink(?!) case, together with a quick start guide giving you the essential information on how to get the thing started…

Recovering a bricked Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 using JTAG – Part 1: the hardware

I got a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 router that somewhat worked and somewhat didn’t: it booted alright (no led errors), responded to ping on its default IP (, bot other than that, it did not respond on the web interface, nor telnet/ssh, nor dhcp.

I tried the 30/30/30 reset , tried TFTP recovery – nothing worked.

As it had the original Linksys firmware, at this point it was either a hardware failure or the only recovery course would be the JTAG reflash.
