Reverse-engineering pocket router hardware

Posted on Monday, August 27th, 2012 in reversed by the machinegeek


Squonk informs us that he’s experienced success in reverse-engineering the PCB and pinout of the Atheros AR9331 main SoC used in the popular TL-WR703N/TL-MR3020 pocket routers.

You can read Squonk’s project write up on the OpenWRT website.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
