Sorry if I misunderstand you, but are you finding a more detailed version string than:

 1.00(AAKL.21)C0

?

Looking at it again I realise now that I was wrong, my apologies. In the web GUI it shows two fields which are just the contents of two particular user-defined XML elements from the config file and so can be any strings you want. I had chosen to put in some text that looked a bit like a version number so that was what lead me astray, thinking it was the version number from the image file. My apologies.

No problem, was just making sure I wasn't missing something.

More detailed version strings that show up in the update page and else where would definitely be useful though.

does the vmg1312-b10a hardware support 30a? also some "official rumor" about my ISP:

http://en.globes.co.il/en/article-bezeq-upgrading-to-200-mbit-surfing-speeds-1001235706

so i'm getting vectoring if I'm on 17a too?

PS: 250/7.5 is what I expect from Bezeq :-X so i'm staying on vmg1312 as 40/3 is enough [next step is 100/3  ???]

No, it only supports up to 17a

also some "official rumor" about my ISP:

http://en.globes.co.il/en/article-bezeq-upgrading-to-200-mbit-surfing-speeds-1001235706

No, not necessarily.

Your ISP appears to be rolling out profile 35b, not 30a.

*I very much doubt your ECI M41 DSLAM can be upgraded to accommodate profile 35b.

They will probably be fitting different DSLAMs. Profile 17a and profile 35b share tones so vectoring can be done over both at the same time so you may indeed get vectoring while on 17a.

*The ECI M41 DSLAM doesn't support system level vectoring, only line card vectoring.
This is incredibly inefficient and requires individual phone bundles to be routed to the same line cards.
I'd be very surprised if it could be upgraded to run system level vectoring with 17a/35b combined if they couldn't even do 17a right.

I know its 35b xd just thought maybe 30a would be relevant somehow? oh well I don't need vectoring or more than 17a [we all prefer it though], was just hoping, hopes shattered then  :D

I thought they'd mention fitting another cab, the rumor says it's "already installed"  :-\

Edit: right, rumors...  :P

"Globes" has learned that the new equipment is deployed in all parts of Israel, but it has not yet been activated, which is expected to be expected in a few months. "

Bezeq stated that "Bezeq is constantly examining various possibilities for improving and upgrading its communications infrastructure, as is the case in this case. These are preliminary stages of examining the technology and its capabilities, and there is no detailed plan for its use. "

This sentence says that everything is currently talk and only God knows when it will actually take effect or where. In addition, as noted above, Bezeq and its members collect thousands of shekels from business customers on symmetric lines, so that in the future (even far), we will not see a symmetric line for private customers from Bezeq.

Found where the version string is stored, but it seems the webinterface truncates it to cut off anything after 1.00(AAJZ.14)C0.. so probably have to shorten the whole thing to get any useful info represented by it.

Here are 2 builds from the latest AAJZ.16 version for the VMG1312-B10A, the differences to last version are minor so no real need to upgrade if you dont feel like it. Just a version with the jumbo frames patches and another with the old telnetd binary if you enjoy having more than one telnet session open at a time, no updated dsl_phy as it seemed it only benefited me and caused more confusion than good.

Both tested to boot, but not on a line yet.

What is your experience if the sync rate following this upgrade? My sync rates are really not good compared with what they were, but I broke all the rules of proper testing and it could just be because I have resynched and nothing more. Conditions may have simply changed. I should have done a comparison test with the same firmware first.

Could someone remind me where we are with low-level DSL driver versions included? Is d26a the version number for the low-level DSL driver that is included in this latest release?

Another question: could someone help me with a recap on performance of the recent DSL driver releases - opinions on merits of the different releases?

I have a bit careful with trying to comparison test the different releases regarding performance because my three lines have rather different characteristics, for reasons unknown, and also simply resyncing a lot without even changing software can possibly cause odd annoying effects on sync rate, and that can muck up the results. It is very easy to get completely bogus results.

i have no DLM, but my line is VDSL, yours is ADSL, so I can't exactly test for you

about different releases the adsl_phy needs to be from the same SDK version [open source firmware?] of several other accompanying components, I PM'd johnson a page full of that kind of stuff that I stumbled upon on google, don't know what was done on the x1 so let's wait for his answer

i don't think x1 performs how it was seen as it's used on the 3925, leaving that aside the next adsl version that im curious about is w1
