https://github.com/johnson442/custom-zyxel-firmware

Finally got the docker build cleaned up and put on github.

A reasonable amount of combinations built and tested for 1312 & 8x24 based on latest V17 & V28 source are available under the releases section:

Its coming! Have the docker build working great but needs cleaning up. Was going to suggest https://github.com/trejan/VMG3925-B10B/releases but it seems they have removed the V13 for some reason.

Do you just want jumbo frames on the latest version Alex? Can build test and upload that fast if so.

Yes, jumbo frames is the important thing but the custom stats stuff would be REALLY nice as AFAIK nobody has included it in any 3925 builds before.

In all honestly though I can probably wait however long it takes as my devices seem pretty stable as they are, so long as I do not enable WiFi AP mode. ;)

Brilliant!
8x24-B10A-28-jumbo-tel-x6-cmd.bin is loaded and working perfectly.

Thanks,  ;D

Do I want to upgrade my modems - VMG1312-B10A devices ?

(To 1312-B10A-17-jumbo-tel-x6-stats-cmd.bin )

I'd be inclined to say - why fool with a running piece? With lightning issues and engineers coming I would keep as many variables as possible the same.

That said, once you have stable lines they are some benefits from the new stats server. Everything under /data updates on access rather than having to perform a /getdata or relying on /data/varStats.

But I would not change the adsl_phy modem code unless you want to test, stick to 1312-B10A-17-jumbo-tel-stats-cmd.bin, or even one with less. No problems making a 1312-B10A-17-jumbo-stats.bin if it suits.

Got it. Will do as you suggest. Is the new phy module ‘under test/evaluation’ status?

yeah not sure why the 3925 has had the least attention, however that build on the github is stable in terms of vdsl connectivity I am using it right now, but the new UI on it is a joke.  The holding page e.g. thinks my dsl is down at the moment.

What is special about v13 vs v5.13?

johnson can you do 3925 builds "before" cleaning up docker like you did with others? thanks.

Yeah it says mine is down too, I figured that just doesn't work in bridge mode.

I think both of mine came with the new UI, so never seen the old one to compare.

It has the least attention from me because its inferior to 1312s & 8x24s. It is missing the input filter that makes these modems the best syncing, I bought one to test and found these results.

The new GUI is really quite a step up from the old, it works well on smaller screens and mobile where the old one was broken.

Regarding v13 and v5.13, you are looking at the wrong part of the version number. V5.13(AAVF.12) vs V5.13(AAVF.13).

My experience has been the same - my 3925 languishes in a cupboard as a backup (one of quite a few different devices  :-[) as my 8924-B10A trumps it and all the rest on sync speed. I still occasionally buy yet another cheap router from eBay in the hope that I will find something better, but with the exception of a Netgear D6220 (which synced equally well, and I used until it suffered a hardware failure) I've so far found nothing to match it.

I saw no discernible difference to the HG612, does that not have the filter either?

I'd imagine the input filter would only make a difference under certain line conditions.  Maybe would have more impact if I were on a Hauwei cabinet at 3dB rather than ECI?

The HG612 is old and syncs low also. Get an 8324 or 8924 and you will never go back  ;)
If you are on a Huawei cab of course...

I'm waiting on g.FAST/FTTP and stuck on an ECI cabinet until then, so it makes no sense to replace them now.  Just get the most I can from the hacked firmware.
