Why use third-party firmware?

Read on for more information about the problems this third-party firmware solves, or skip to firmware downloads if you want to get started right away.

History

Several users on the DSLReports VoIP Tech Chat forum discovered how Obihai firmware could be reverse-engineered and updated so that features may be added. The first feature was the update of security certificates on the OBi100/110. Although Google Voice is no longer compatible with 100/110, this third-party firmware extended the life of these ATAs for those who like to use Google Voice. (The 100/110 can still be used with any non-Google BYOD VoIP provider.)

History

On 19 June, Google decommissioned XMPP servers so OBi100/110 don't work any more, even with the third-party firmware. While it's possible to make the 100/110 work, it's not that easy. If anyone likes to work on this project, please discuss it at DSLReports.

Today

Still are good features in the third-party firmware for OBi2/3 and OBiPHONE. The new firmware allows Google Voice to be configured without the OBiTALK portal. Also adds a SSH server, allows unlocking of vendor-customized devices, allows the OBi3 ATAs to be configured with Google Voice(!), and allows Caller ID contact list.

Do I need flash programmer?

Not any more. Some very intelligent users developed a firmware that is a direct replacement for the official firmware and can be easily installed using traditional methods.

Installation instructions

Open your OBi's web portal by entering its IP address in your web browser. If you don't know your IP address, pick up the phone and dial *** 1. Then go to System Managment, Device Update, Firmware Update.

Changes:
  1. add dropbear ssh server. default root passwd = "obi". [Hint: login and change the SSH root password asap. Now started by custom startup script in /scratch/etc/rc.custom, change as you please.]
  2. patch obiapp to use oauth token request override, for provisioning GV without obitalk. [unknown if this works with new non-XMPP GV]
  3. patch obiapp to bypass "zero touch" forced configuration. added clear_zt_params util to clear old zero touch params [param_dump available separately due to size]
  4. patch obiapp to use /scratch/contacts.xml for caller id number to name translation lookup.
  5. patch obiapp to bypass signed firmware check when loading new fw, and reuse old uboot without bootdelay=0 and silent=1 madness
  6. OBi300/OBi302: enable Google Voice.

Disclaimer

These firmwares, like the official Obihai firmwares, are provided without warranty. Standard precautions apply, such as do not install firmware over a wireless network connection.

Support

Where to get support

Obihai does not support OBi100/OBi110 ATAs (and doesn't really support their other products either).

VoIP Tech Chat

DSLReports hosts one of the busiest VoIP forums on the internet, which is the forum where this firmware was first discussed and published.

OBiTALK Community

The OBiTALK Community is a forum specific to users of OBi products. It has largely been abandoned by Obihai but the users are sometimes helpful.
