What Do I Need?

So, you want to recover a modem that had just suffered a bad flash, or perhaps you want to revert it to an older firmware. You will need :-

  1. An Aztech ADSL Router Modem which uses a Texas Instruments (TI) chipset
  2. A computer with an Ethernet port
  3. A straight Ethernet cable
  4. TI Remote Application 2.3
  5. The appropriate firmware
  6. Patience and some luck!


Part 1 : Download TI Remote Application 2.3

We will be using this software to reflash the modem. I obtained my copy from Aztech's FTP server. Unfortunately, they have since removed it. No worries though. You can download my copy which we have made available here. Once you download it, you will need to unzip and install it.


Part 2 : Download The Appropriate Firmware

Now, flip the modem over and look for its model number. This is important as different models may use different chipsets with different firmware.

You can download the appropriate firmware from Aztech. Here are some FTP folders where firmware for several Aztech modems are stored. Although you should use country-specific firmware where possible, you can use firmware from other countries in a pinch, if there is no firmware update for your country.

In this guide, I will concentrate on flashing the firmware version 3x.x.x. It seems that firmware version 6x.x.x for Malaysia are just upgrades, not the full firmware. Once you download the firmware, unzip it to an easily-accessible location. Now, we are ready to reflash the modem.
