Introduction

The EasyBox 904 LTE is a 4G WiFi router, with a tiny 3 inch display, which has a 2.4 GHz and a 5 GHz WiFi interface, four 1G LAN ports, an ISDN RJ45 port, a 4 pin terminal also for use with ISDN and 3 TAE ports. Also there are 2 covered SMA ports for external LTE antenna, a covered SIM slot and two USB 2.0 ports (one also covered). Under the hood it has a Mini-PCIe slot, which is used for a QUANTA 1KG2 LTE modem, also connected to the SMA ports and onboard antennas. At least you can find a serial port at J8, next to the VIA VT6212L, which starts listening to 115200 baud (8N1).

For some people it might be a big surprise, but if you look at the firmware of the device (e.g. UEfullimage_AT904L-03.18.bin), it introduces itself as OpenWrt Backfire 10.03.1-RC5 as of /etc/openwrt_version and /etc/openwrt_release in the squashfs_root. Anyway, at first glance, it doesn't primarily rely on uci, but they are using ccfg_cli and a simplified Web-UI to make the “voodoo” work.
