Hacking the UV-B5
- Just wanted to share some information on hacking the UV-B5. I know there is a separate group for that radio, but the original hacking of the UV-3R started here, so I am posting the information here as well (and since the radio are very similar to each other).
Bottom line, is that the UV-B5 is a much simpler hack since they have separated the CPU from the radio with a cable. Also, the programming pads on the CPU are exposed, but I have not been able to program the CPU (maybe I have the wrong protocol).
You can read more on the hacking progress here:
