    Hello all,

    Just wondering if Talisman is dead...don't see any activity at all on the Sveasoft linksys link!? Made mistake of subscribing to Sveasoft, no link to download Talisman, no way to logon to Sveasoft forum/support and no answer to any of my emails!? I think I'm hosed!??

    I ran Sveasoft back in the day. And I paid for it, back before Sveasoft started efforts to copy protect and force folks to pay for it.

    As far as I am aware, things fell apart there some time ago. Many paying users, such as myself, and contributing developers seemingly bailed for other firmware with more active development, open atmosphere and less controversy. As Sveasoft was apparently very much a business, slowing development and profit took the expected inevitable toll. I found a blog out there which has some news although is clearly not a fan site, to say the least.

    I'd suggest checking out Tomato or perhaps DD-WRT which after all started life as a Sveasoft fork. I could be wrong, but all I have read indicates there is little future, or even present for that matter, in sticking with Sveasoft.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not really a Sveasoft hater. In fact I thought very highly of it at one point. But I've moved on and just trying to report what I've read.

    Sveasoft is a scam!

    Hello all,

    Just wanted other people to know that Sveasoft Firmware is apparently a scam! I made the mistake of purchasing the firmware through Paypal, never received a link for the firmware, never got a response from Sveasoft after numerous emails and was unable to get my money back through Paypal! (Now I even have second thoughts about Paypal!) So, beware of Sveasoft firmware...you'll be sorry!!:mad::mad::mad:

    Tbh just glacing over their build list makes me suspicious. The fact the kids doing HNCs produce more impressive site being the other :p

    Still, pp is quite good with scam claims usually. Failing that you can always charge-back unless you linked yu bank to pp and left it as the default payment, in which case you have to go though pp. Call them, there's nothing to loose.

    That's what I thought too...PP has been good in the past but...I filed a claim through PP and they told me that they couldn't verify whether I got the firmware or not so they would not resolve the claim in my favor. The bad part is, Sveasoft never even responded to PP let alone me! Something fishy going on there I'm afraid!! Heck, had I even received a link to the firmware, I wouldn't have filed a claim whether I liked or disliked the firmware. The guy has a good scam going I'm afraid...the PP payment goes through really good to his bank but after that, no link, no response to emails...guys got a good thing going.
