Introduction Welcome back to our introduction to hardware hacking 101 and the final installment of the JTAG blog post series! In this post we cover how to communicate with a target device via JTAG once the pinout has been identified. We walk through Open On-Chip Debugger (OpenOCD) and GDB (GNU project debugger), demonstrate how to read and write from memory, and more broadly discuss the impacts of an exposed JTAG interface on production devices.
Introduction Welcome back to our introduction to hardware hacking 101 series and our second installment of our JTAG blog post! In this post we share a teardown of a TP-Link AC1750 to demonstrate how to identify and verify a pinout for JTAG. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out part one of the JTAG post where we provide background on the interface and its characteristics. Hands On Now that we have covered how JTAG works and its interface, let’s take a look at a TP-Link Archer C7 | AC1750 dual band wireless router to demonstrate how to locate and identify the pinout for JTAG.
