The software which drives any of the Box-Models is called FRITZ!OS, the firmware. It is based on Linux, many open source packages and a lot of proprietary code from AVM.

FRITZ!OS is a downloadable *.image file which is an uncompressed tar archive containing the Firmware-Files.
For emergency situations AVM also offers it in form of a Windows program, the Recovery.exe.


FRITZ!OS is a mix of open source and AVM proprietary software. The core consists of a Linux kernel with many Kernel-Modules. In userspace it consists of numerous Shared-Libraries used by even more Shell-Commands, the basic ones are the BusyBox-Commands.

The Configuration is maintained by a HTTP Webinterface which internally consists of subject grouped UI-Modules. AVM also provides a remote configuraton API via TR-064, which is used by Smartphone-Apps and a lot of Open-Source projects.


You can find the latest FRITZ!OS for a model in the Downloads section of the respective Box-Models article and in the Firmware-History. There you also find the latest Recovery.exe and the source code in form of AVM-Tarballs. Current beta releases from the FRITZ!Lab can be found in Labor-Files.
