Hacking RTL960x

  • Hacking V2801F, TWCGPON657 & DFP-34X-2C2 to suite your ISP Fiber
  • GPON market is a mess, plus explicit OMCI cause ONU Stick did not work
  • 4-port ONU Emulation Table

Sucess Story

List of users has successfully ditch stock ONU!

  1. @stich86 2.5GbE Internet
  2. My journey connecting fiber internet to my router
  3. Hinet users in TW
  4. @izhamsatria: ~2.5Gbps on TM Unifi before TIME announce 2Gbps plan in Malaysia

Where to buy?

  1. HSGQ @ Taobao Mall
  2. Fibershow @ AliExpress (Choose XPON)


  • Much cheaper than VSOL V2801F & CarlitoxxPro CPGOS03-0490 v2.0!
  • Using latest SoC RTL9601D!
  • Support HEX PLOAM Password! Using 220304 Firmware
  • Support 2.5GbE via HiSGMII or 2500Base-X! See Compatibility, SpeedTest
  • Using newer SFP Body with intergrated heatsink See Picture
  • Very efficient, just 45°C without fan!
  • Automatic/Transparent bridge like VSOL V2801F! Using 220304 Firmware
  • Support 4-port ONU Emulation

V2801F Alternative

  1. TWCGPON657 with V2801F Firmware as V2801F substitute
  2. Opton GP801R Found by @AreYouLoco


  • Limited 2.5GbE Support wrong LAN_SDS_MODE can lock you out, no auto switch
  • HEX PLOAM Password require modification from @zry98
  • Automatic/Full Transparent
  • Support 4-port ONU Emulation
  • Modern WebGUI

Triple Play Multiple ISP Problem, 4-port ONU Emulation

  • Majority fiber vendor support multiple ISP
  • ISP provide Triple Play service (Internet, VoIP & IPTV)
  • Vendor supply 4-port ONU for each service or ISP

4-port ONU Emulation

Based on ru-board, xPON Stick with 4-Port Emulation support is limited!

ONU LAN Port Binding example

If you using 4-port ONU like Huawei HG8240H5, Nokia G-240G-E and Router connected to ONU LAN 2/3/4, you have limited option, I recommend ODI DFP-34X-2C2 with 220304 or newer firmware.

Table 4-port ONU Emulation

Here list of xPON Stick on the market that support 4-port ONU Emulation:

xPON Stick Huawei HG8240H LAN Port Firmware
Root 1 2 3 4 PVID
Huawei MA5671a ✔️ ✔️ OpenWRT
Nokia G-010S-P ✔️ ✔️ OpenWRT
ODI DFP-34X-2C2 ✔️ ✔️ 210702, 220527
ODI DFP-34X-2C2 ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ 220304, 220414
TWCGPON657 ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ C00R657V2801F_V1.9.0-220404.tar
V-SOL V2801F ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ Stock Firmware

✔️ Port Emulation Support

Not Supported

Root mean your ONU is All in One where PPPoE/DHCP ended inside ONU (not bridge/route mode)

PVID is VLAN untagging, at router side, WAN connected without VLAN, useful consumer router such as TL-XDR5480 without VLAN support
