SuperHub firmware

SuperHub firmware is a custom firmware that I have built for the SE208BW
Here are all the different versions of this firmware:

1.0
In this version I have removed the live update script, included toybox with the chroot symlink, included bash, changed the hostname to SuperHub and included the chroot scripts. Now to chroot into your USB drive simply type ch.sh for normal chroot and lch.sh for loop file chroot. With this firmware installed you may remove the root-filesystem-armv4l folder from your chroot USB drive or from loop file because it isn't needed anymore.

Installation guide:

Requirements:
1. Your SE208BW
2. A USB drive.
3. Your favourite telnet client on PC, phone or tablet. 

Steps:
1. Download the right firmware for your region...
Europe/Asia firmware based firmware version (TW)
America firmware based firmware version (AW)
...and copy of in the root of your USB drive
Do not use the TW firmware if your device has preinstalled AW firmware, and vice versa! To check the initial firmware region of your SE208BW check on the sticker under the device.
2. Insert the usb drive into your SE208BW and telnet into it. Don't forget to disconnect the adsl cable from your modem!
3. If you are installing this firmware instead of the original firmware or if you are installing it after a brick recovery type:
cd /mnt/usbs
tar -xzf firmware file name
cp ImageInfo /system
cp ImageInfo /etc
cd /
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmpmnt -o size=40m
cd /tmpmnt
mkdir upgrade
cd /
ln -s /mnt/usbs/firmware file name /tmpmnt/upgrade/firm.tar.gz
/usr/sausalito/handlers/base/upgrade2/CheckImage.sh
/usr/sausalito/handlers/base/upgrade2/flashwrite.sh &

3.1 Otherwise just type
cd /
mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmpmnt -o size=40m
cd /tmpmnt
mkdir upgrade
ln -s /mnt/usbs/firmware file name /tmpmnt/upgrade/firm.tar.gz
/usr/sausalito/handlers/base/upgrade2/CheckImage.sh
/usr/sausalito/handlers/base/upgrade2/flashwrite.sh &

4. Wait until the device reboots and enjoy your SuperHub!
