HAK5 Hacks A La Fonera

Today’s HAK5 video podcast features Darren Kitchen doing a demonstration of replacing stock Fon firmware on a FON2100 with Jasager Karma using the Freifunk Ap51 EasyFlash GUI utility.

If you prefer an online tutorial, with plenty of excellent pictures, you can find it here in Kitchen’s blog, or here in the Hack5 forum.

I haven’t followed these steps personally, and haven’t used some of the helper tools, but everything looks ok after brief inspection. Use at your own risk.

As usual, i’m VERY amused at all of the references to some kind of device called “a FON”, and still don’t understand how a young, four-legged ruminant is involved, but then noone ever listens to me. 😉

    HAK5 is a cool show, they aren’t really hackers, they just copy other projects, it’s just fun to watch.
