 +==== U-Boot 1.1.4 modification for routers ====
 +Forum member [[https://​forum.openwrt.org/​profile.php?​id=72549|pepe2k]] made a modification of **U-Boot 1.1.4** for **Qualcomm Atheros** SoCs based devices (the project is still being developed, so new devices and SoCs will be supported in the future). Up to date information,​ binary images and sources can be found on official [[https://​github.com/​pepe2k/​u-boot_mod|GitHub repository]].
 +
 +This modification started from [[http://​code.google.com/​p/​wr703n-uboot-with-web-failsafe/​|wr703n-uboot-with-web-failsafe]] project, but supports more devices, all modern web browsers, has a lot of improvements and other modifications (like U-Boot NetConsole, custom commands, overclocking possibilities etc.).
