Default DGN2200M Telkom firmware update

Hi. I have the DGN2200M router that I got from Telkom in South Africa. However, this router has Telkom customized firmware on and does not allow an upgrade to Netgear firmware via the GUI. Is there any way to force a firmware update? I do accept that I will lose the guarantee.

I have tried:

- The TFTP method. I can't seem to get the router exactly at the point where it accepts a TFTP transfer.
- I have tried the method to unlock the Virgin router (via telnet, burnboardid).
- I do have Telnet access to the router. Is there no way to update firmware via direct telnet on the router? Have been searching for ages!

I have contacted netgear - no reply yet.

Thanks! Any help will be appreciated!

if you can not do it then you have to use jtag method

go to myopenrouter.com

netgear will not help you on brand firmware units

Thanks for the reply jmizoguchi.

I will look into the JTAG method. However, it makes sense to me that if one can do this via TFTP, there MUST be a way via telnet as well...
