Huawei B593 Unlock External Antenna firmware from Zain?
« on: July 06, 2013, 08:49:11 AM »
Hi, I have the Huawei B593 Smarthub from Telus in Canada.  There is no option in the software to enable the External Antenna, and Telus is no help at all.

I went to this page:
http://advanceconfig.com/2013/01/09/huawei-b593-router-cpe-unlock-external-antenna/

And downloaded the firmware file.  When I unpacked the file I got 3 files:
B593.TRX
B593-small.TRX
modem.BIN

A few questions please:

1.  What file should I use to upgrade the firmware?  Is there a certain procedure that I need to follow to get this firmware in?

2.  Also, I am assuming that this is the Zain firmware which will unlock the External Antenna option?

3.  Will upgrading to this firmware do anything to my Router other than unlocking the External Antenna option?

4.  Would anyone have a link to the very newest firmware?  I read that Zain released new firmware in April of this year, but I can't find it anywhere.

Thank you for your help.

I dont know which to use. And trying to add a firmware is dangerous, if you do the wrong thing you will turn it into a paper weight. :wink:

I dont mess with firmwares much and I dont from router that comes from ISP's as they are normally custom firmwares.
