This site will be used to describe my attempts to modify the firmware on a couple of wireless routers that are based on the BCM6348 chip from Broadcom which has a MIPS core and runs on a Linux kernel. Both these routers are using various pieces of Open Source Software along with a lot of proprietary software.
There are a few other sites around with information regarding modifying these types of routers, as well as some sites that are devoted to a sister chip, a BCM6345, also from Broadcom. These routers also use Linux, in most instances a similar version, and a majority of the tricks work on all the routers. The sites I have visited are as follows:
OpenWrt Wireless Freedom
DarkFader's Livebox Site
Livebox on wikipedia
Skaya Wiki Broadcom 96345
Broadcom 6345 Linux Distribution
TinyGT minimal DG834GT distribution ** This Site is No Longer Available **

To see what I have managed to do with the Inventel Wanadoo router, start here.
So far I haven't done anything to the BT HomeHub except add a JTAG Connector, build a Serial Cable and backup the flash via JTAG..
The locations for various source codes, for various BCM6348 routers, are listed at the following location.
