I've just bought an MSI RG54SE II and was looking for some information in
the net for it when I came across your post.
For me the first part (index 0x0..0x97ff) looks like an binary loaded to
extract (and install?) the appended BZ file.
The second part seems to be a BZ packed image file containing the linux
kernel (2.4.18-MIPS-01.00) and an compressed BZ packed RAM disk.
Some interesting strings:
GCC: (GNU) 3.3.3
>From what I can tell by staring to the images busybox has no telnet(d)
support compiled in nor a dropbear SSH(d) is available. But there seems to
be plenty enough space; half of the RAM disk is empty (0x0).
Sadly I don't have the time nor the experience (that meens the time ;-) to
make the needed adjustments to plug in a telnet and or SSH and make this box
But maybe this information is helpful though I *did not find* any hint of
using GPL software in that box.
And there are *plenty* of it in that box.
Happy suing ;)
