Hi

I am new BT infinity victim
and I just have bought a new ECI modem (to use instead of the hub 6), but the modem is locked!
So I am trying to unlock it, but I could not understand how to do it! because this thread has so many pages now! So I couldn't figure it out. ???
Could you tell me how to unlock it , please?

And thank you

This works fine to unlock.Have done this myself a few times. See the post under hardware started by jsamuel.

OpenWrt (Chaos Calmer r46559) for ECI/r v1 & v2 - Update: G.INP/ReTX Support

Hi there. I thought I would share with you my OpenWrt image. It's been quite stable and there are some fixes which aren't currently in the trunk.
The configuration is setup much like an unlocked HG612 is setup, ie:
Set the router's IP to 192.168.1.2
The modem, by default is set to 192.168.1.1

LAN1 -> WAN port on the router
LAN2 -> LAN port on the router, configured with a gateway to the router so the modem has internet access for OPKG. And of course access to the modem itself via 192.168.1.1.

I've had to make some modifications to get this working, and since the switch driver is still broken there's no VLANs so LAN1 and LAN2 are back to separate ports like you might have seen in previous images. eth0/eth1

Lan2 led has been fixed too.

Graphs: see this follow up post

I've also modified lantiq_dsl.sh with the help of Kronos' additions to it last year, but I've added a few more things.
LuCI's status page has been changed to reflect this.


Nano is preinstalled, too. This image requires no additional configuration. Hopefully I've helped someone who wants to install openwrt on their ECI/r in an HG612-like setup without losing hair.

v1: openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J-squashfs.image
v2: openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J_V2-squashfs.image
Remember the SoC on the ECI /r v1 is labelled "v1.1"  and on the v2 it's labelled "v1.2"
Don't put the image for the v2 on a v1 otherwise your ethernet ports won't work effectively leaving you with a bricked unit.

If there's any stats missing, let me know.

Flashing procedure for those who aren't familiar with these modems:

Quote
Buy a USB to TTL UART connector. I used one with a CP2102 chip.
Buy a 1mm drillbit
Buy some right angle 0.1" 2.54mm header pins
carefully drill the four serial holes (see this previous post on Kitz) connect the pins to the PCB and dab some flux core solder on the bottom of the pins.
See the above image on how to connect the serial header to RXD, TXD & GND.

If on Linux use something like picocom, eg: $ sudo picocom -b 115200 -l -r /dev/ttyUSB0 115200,cs8,-parenb,cstopb,-hupcl
If on Windows use PuTTY Tray to connect to the serial and enter the following:
   Serial line: COM3
   Speed: 115200
   Connection type: Serial
Click the dropdown at Connection and select Serial.
   Databits: 8
   Stop bits: 1
   Parity: None
   Flow control: None
Save your session under something like "UART" for future reference.

Now connect to the serial and connect LAN1 to the ethernet port on your PC.
If using Linux, mkdir /tftpImage, copy your squashfs image into it and setup tftp:
   ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
   /usr/sbin/dnsmasq --listen-address="192.168.1.1" \
   --no-daemon \
   --dhcp-range="192.168.1.100,192.168.1.150,12h" \
   --interface="eth0" \
   --no-negcache \
   --enable-tftp \
   --log-queries \
   --domain="my.lan" \
   --bind-interfaces \
   --log-facility=- \
   --tftp-root=/tftpImage/,eth0 \
   --log-dhcp \
   --stop-dns-rebind \
   --no-hosts

If using Windows, see: http://tftpd32.jounin.net/

Interrupt the bootloader by pressing CTRL+C
Enter the following commands at the VRx prompt:

   set ipaddr 192.168.1.100
   set serverip 192.168.1.1
   set bootfile openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J-squashfs.image
   set bootcmd cp.b 0xb0020000 0x80002000 0x400000\; go 0x80002000
   set preboot ping 1.1.1.1\;run bootcmd
   set update_openwrt erase 0xb0020000 0xb073ffff\;tftp 0x81000000 openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J-squashfs.image\;cp.b 0x81000000 0xb0020000 \$(filesize)
   saveenv

If your modem is a v2, change:
   set bootfile openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J-squashfs.image
        [.............]
   set update_openwrt erase 0xb0020000 0xb073ffff\;tftp 0x81000000 openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J-squashfs.image\;cp.b 0x81000000 0xb0020000 \$(filesize)
to
   set bootfile openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J_V2-squashfs.image
        [.............]
   set update_openwrt erase 0xb0020000 0xb073ffff\;tftp 0x81000000 openwrt-lantiq-xrx200-VG3503J_V2-squashfs.image\;cp.b 0x81000000 0xb0020000 \$(filesize)

Now run:
   run update_openwrt
   reset

All should be good.

Thanks.

I have bought this unlocked modem from eBay

Unlocked BT Openreach ECI OpenWrt LEDE Modem-Router-Infinity-Sky-Kodi-GBox IPTV

I want to use it as a modem, and to use my smart hub (hub 6) as router only.
Could you tell me how to configure this modem to work with BT infinity, please?

Sadly the smarthub 6 is a modem/router. It wont work behind another modem as there is no option to make it a router only mode. Alternative method is to get a 3rd party router and use that behind your eci modem.

Thank yooou very much.

OK then, can I connect my PC directly to eci modem?
I just wanna make sure the modem is working before I buy a new router...

And how can I configure this modem to work with my bt infinity, please?

An ECI B-FOCuS V-2FUb/r Rev.B (ECI Cat No: 0N316150 / Rev: RA403) was recently removed from a decommissioned site at my workplace, so obviously I opened it up.

The unit was in service for probably 3 contiguous years in total, and there are three clearly faulty capacitors, all Hermei branded. The two large 25v 2200uf Hermei caps look fine, and the three Taicon 6.3v 470uf caps also look okay.

For the record:
The stock firmware reports an MTU of 1500, and 'ifconfig eth0 mtu 1508' returns an error.
Hence this modem for vdsl use cannot be configured for mini-jumbo frames to use pppoe with full 1500 byte support :(.
The LEDE/OpenWRT firmware may have the same restriction....  I have propose a mod to the ethernet driver to allow 1508 (same driver as bt homehub 5?), but have been unable to test successfully (i.e. it all seemed to work, only packets over 1500 were dropped; now I believe by the ECI!).
I'll now be ditching my ECI, having moved to BT HH 5 with LEDE, which can do the full 1500 on pppoe direct to vdsl :).
