Modifying the firmware images
#1
OK so not quite a tutorial yet ... but hopefully soon!

I'm just picking through the firmware upgrade file (for my N4200Pro ... "XXXseries_1U4600_N0503_N4200series_N5500_N7700series_N8800series_FW_5.03.01.bin") and I can see the kernel images that are to be put onto partition 2 of the DOM and lots of other interesting stuff, I also see with the kernel is a "bz5200v1.sum" file ... does anyone know what app is used to create that file ? I'm assuming it is a checksum and that the upgrade script will fail if I drop in a kernel of my own crafting in place of the original file.

Im trying to recompile the kernel (which isnt the hardest part) and transfer it to my thecus n5550.
Thecus doesnt want to enable my usb 2 serial device, just a matter of setting a flag in the menuconfig
