The FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable is an entry level 16x4-channel Puma6 DOCSIS 3.0 router, a little sister of the 24x8 channel FRITZ!Box 6490 Cable, and together with the 6490 the first cable model which turned a retail model. It only supports 2.4 GHz WLAN and has a slower CPU.and no FONS0 port.

Background: Before Germany got the "Routerfreiheit" (freedom to choose own router) by law in 2016-08-01[1] there was no free AVM cable model on the market. Cable models were only available from ISPs (compulsory routers, german "Zwangsrouter") and they always had custom firmware for the respective ISP, which could not be updated by the user. These custom models are still used, just everybody has the right now to buy an own router with retail firmware without any restrictions.

Note that the information above is merged from all current Firmware versions available for this model, if there are multiples.
For a more detailed per Firmware view see the Firmware-Scans below, and have a look at the Firmware-History.

Daily updated index of all FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable firmware modding projects. Last update: 2024-04-22 08:59 GMT.
This list excludes community ripping, code raping, project killing and permanent quarrel and combat enforcing individuals.
BoxMatrix tries to be a service to the community without doing harm to anyone, and not a platform to advertize the opposite.
Mother nature will bill for all time, manpower, projects, fun and passion which was ripped from the community for sick battle.
Let this reaver suck all honest work on this planet and pretend he knew it first. Mother nature will ripp it off his bones.
And if this sick (single sided) perversion continues I have no other option than invoking the police. Please someone stop him.

Daily updated scans of the latest firmware for the FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable. Last update: 2024-04-23 04:04 GMT.
Note that models with multiple Linux instances have multiple scan results per firmware labeled main/scrpn/boot/arm/prx/atom.
All dates have been converted to GMT.

No firmware to scan!


Daily updated index of all scanned FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable tarballs, most of which are online. Last update: 2024-04-22 04:33 GMT.
The (main/scrpn/boot/arm/prx/atom) label in the Model column shows which CPU is meant for models with multiple Linux instances.
The Ver column shows the Firmware-Version derived from the tarball's filename, or 00.00 if not detectable.
There's no way to find this number in the source. Click the version number to get a listing of the entire tarball.
The Kern column shows the Kernel-Version from the kernel Makefile, click it to get a listing of the kernel source.
The BB column shows the BusyBox-Version from various scan sources, click it for listing the busybox addons.
The Libc and LcVer columns show the Libc-Library and its version where it could be detected, which is complicated, no listings yet.
The CC column shows the GCC-Version from its root Makefile, click it for a listing of the gcc source in the tarball.
The BR column shows the Buildroot-Version if detectable, click it for a listing of its source in the GCC tarball.
The Date column shows the date of the newest contained file. By default this list is reverse sorted by this date.
This is no perfect method, since AVM sometimes repackages older tarballs. No better method has been found so far.
