Cyborg Unplug firmware files for the sold 16M SPI flash, 32M RAM RT5350f target Little Snipper. Please see the wr710n branch for the 'homebake' DIY Atheros target (currently TP-Link WR710N).

This firmware builds on OpenWrt BARRIER BREAKER (Bleeding Edge).


Cyborg Unplug is a privacy appliance for the home, hotel and workplace. It detects and optionally disconnects (outside US only) selected devices known to pose a risk to personal privacy, stopping streams of image, video and audio data to the Internet (or the car outside).

Using a Virtual Private Network, this little plug also encrypts your Internet traffic, locking out spies along the route. It can also be used to easily and privately share files on a USB stick with others on the same network. No extra software is required on your phone, tablet or laptop.

Visit the project page here.


Note the wr710n branch is lagging behind master due to differences in hardware and features such as the free SSL sheathed VPN service, automatic firmware updates and private email alerts/notification system. These are only available with Little Snipper hardware sold due to the work involved, alongside the financial and administrative costs of having thousands of people on the project VPN.


You may note that the branches have an /etc/shadow published here. The password is a dummy and will be ineffective in a physical attack on the device. For-sale devices are all given a unique /etc/shadow just prior to shipping. More so, remote SSH attempts are not possible against shipped devices, which are blocked by a firewall for all WAN clients (including the Cyborg Unplug VPN admins!).
