hi which is easiest moto to do and can u buy the blackcat lead anywhere ? thanx in advance
I agree. I would recommend the 5100. It is easy enough to do this modem (follow the new tut in the downloads section) and it is a more future proof choice. It can be done with a serial (max adapter) connection but it far easier to do with a black cat jtag adapter. Tailor Made Circuits now stock these http://www.tailor-madecircuits.com/blackcat_clone.htm. Or you can make your own, they are no harder to make than a max232 adapter.L33tpL4y4 said:sb4200 is very simply to mod, but there is no free hacked firm for docsis 1.1, only for 1.0. If your isp migrates to 1.1 is possible that this stop working.
sb5100 is simply to mod aswell but you'll need a special cable for jtag ( called blackcat ). The hacked firms for this model work well with docsis 1.0, 1.1 and also 2.0 so i would recommend this other one.
