BoBLite

iinet released a home grown BoB although the menu structure looks highly dependent on the Belkin original version of BoB.

It is a fairly cheap box which does pretty well overall. Amazing to see how well Broadcom have managed to jam so much into a single piece of silicon.
The actual chip marking is hard to read.. somewhat blurred.. maybe so it doesn't come out well in photo shots??
BCM6361VKFEBG (CFE identifies it somewhat differently).
And cpuinfo differently again, just to make sure you have no idea.
cpu model        : Broadcom4350 V7.0
It has stacks of flash 16MB and ram 64MB.

Again rather than paste the whole lot here you can download the full text of the boot file.. at the end of the file, I have tried to login to busybox shell but no such luck.
The cat command is available and I have listed the help commands available .. as typical of other broadcom modems.
Like BoB the telnet is active but the username and password is not made available.. and not the same as web username and password so there is zero access unless you solder in console.

Picture coming.
