Info
Linux devices typically are located in /dev and provide a communication interface between the userspace and builtin or loaded Kernel-Modules. There are 2 kinds of devices found in FRITZ!OS, character based Character-Devices and block based Block-Devices. An example of a character device is /dev/tty representing the Terminal of the current process, an example for a block device is /dev/mtdblock0, representing the first partition of the MTD (flash) drivers.

In early FRITZ!OS device nodes were hardcoded in rootfs. In recent firmware they are dynamically created.
For this the devtmpfs is mounted to /dev in order to make it writable at runtime.

Since devices are collected from Firmware-Probes and Supportdata2 probes the following 2 text blocks both are valid:

Daily updated index of all devices found scanning Firmware-Probes . Last update: 2023-01-29 06:36 GMT.
The label (device) in the Device column shows there are other objects in this wiki using this name.
The Mod column shows the amount of models using the respective device. Click the column header to sort by this number.

Daily updated index of all devices found scanning Supportdata2 probes. Last update: 2023-01-29 05:29 GMT.
The label (device) in the Device column shows there are other objects in this wiki using this name.
The Mod column shows the amount of models using the respective device. Click the column header to sort by this number.

This is still unfinished. The Mod columns show wrong numbers. The Model-Matrix is empty for some devices.

Character-Devices[edit]

If Path contains /dev* the Device is hardcoded in Firmware-Probes. /dev means it was found in Supportdata2.

Block-Devices[edit]

If Path contains /dev* the Device is hardcoded in Firmware-Probes. /dev means it was found in Supportdata2.

Special-Devices[edit]

This will disappear and currently collects todo devices which are not only Char or Block.
