Hi guys,

Got myself some bricked router hardware and I really need to get in and do a CFE fix via UART (or JTAG) -- while there is a lot of information on how to get out of this kind of bind once the case is open, and I have significant experience dealing with Broadcom SoCs in other products that would mean I wouldn't need too much help anyway, there isn't so much on how to open the cases in the first place.

I found a little advice on the WZR-600DHP2 in that some models have screws and some are glued -- I'm fairly sure these are glued together -- but even in that event, where do I put my spudger or stanley knife? What kind of case damage would I cause if it is glued?

I couldn't find a reasonable teardown or description of where the screws or clips are on the case, I can't even figure out how they put these things together in the first place.

Does anyone have any experience/photographs/directions in breaking open one of the newer style Buffalo units?

And we can pretty much close the issue. I found this -- I'm guessing searching for a WZR-600DHP2 or WZR-1750DHP doesn't help if nobody is cracking the cases lately.

Of course, Magnetron1.1, you are a star! Both the 600DHP2 and 1750DHP seem to open about the same way, the 1750 being far more sturdily built -- it also has a metal tab thermal taped/glued to the top of the processor module (a large heat sink on the side of the case) which doesn't seem to be capable of being moved in a way that would mechanically damage the RF shield or anything under it -- but is a little bit of a bear to get off and might need a touch more care.
