    New furby triangle security screw

    New furby triangle security screw

    I was able to remove this using my trusing 62 piece Boxer security bit set. I had to file down the edges of the bit just a little so that it would fit. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    Furby Fur Tabs

    These little plastic tabs held the fur to the base of the furby. Also there were two places that were glued to the plastic. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    I didn't know what the zigzagging wires were, but I think they are an antenna to allow the furby to chat with other furbies. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    I had to cut this off because it was attached to the exoskeleton in a way that it couldn't be removed without cutting it. I re-attached it to the motherboard. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    Furby Motherboard, Note Diagnostic Port

    Furby Motherboard, Note Diagnostic Port

    So the creators of the Furby motherboard have helpfully left nice big solder pads (J2) that connect to the RSC-4128 diagnostic port. Once I get my developer kit form Sensory I will know more about this, but hopefully it will be a serial port. The part marked B1 is the ROM chip that stores machine code and should also contain a memory chip. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    New Furby RSC-4128

    The RSC-4128 is the chip in the center covered with epoxy. The pink blurry thing is a transformer (I think) I'm not sure what the other blob of epoxy is on the upper left. ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked

    Furby Opto-encoder TI 01CJ4CK HC14

    Texas Instruments 01CJ4CK HC14 I couldn't find this part in their catalog, but I am pretty sure this board is an opto-encoder, used to tell the processor where the cam is positioned ::: tags: newfurby hack furby hacked
