Has anyone started to hack the WVC54G firmware?

    I downloaded the firmware and confirmed that it once again uses Linux. However, I did not see the source code posted yet on the Linksys website.

    Anybody know if there is an easy way to "get in" so that we can start hacking the firmware and hardware? One could presumably vastly improve the ability to control and access the camera as well as making it less Windoze dependent.

    Yeah that would be nice. If it was possible to stream the camera traffic as multicast or anything that ex. VideoLan could talk to, would make this a soo much better product. I really see a problem with it, it doesn't capture single frames and it only records 5 secs. video for every 2 minutes when there's movement.. It's not usable as things are right now.

    Don't know how I missed your post when I placed mine but I did. I want to hack my WVC11B and WVC54G camera's but I don't have any experience hacking these devices. I will be trying to find a way though.

    I see the tar file for the firmware of the wvc11b version 2.13. So I guess that is a place to start.

    From your message you said that the device "once again uses linux" so I am wondering if you know of any hacks for the WVC11B which has been around a little longer.

    I would still like to hack this thing. The firmware GPL code is on the site now. Only problem is I have never done this before so I have no clue where to begin. Can anyone point me to any information on hacking linksys devices which use linux ?

    Take care if you update with your own firmware. There is no possiblity to rollback with a stable one. So you can crash your camera ...
