That was my first guess, but I am using the open source u-boot version
on the BT Home Hub 5A (= Annex A device) and it still refuses to
connect to Annex B (at least back when I tried last, I switched to
VDSL like two months ago).

If you can figure out where the boot_sel pins are (similar to [0] or
[1]) to get it into CFG04 mode (= boot via UART) then I can add a
patch for Daniel Schwierzeck's open source lantiq u-boot. But be
aware: you need to pull some of them HIGH (= 3.3V, *NOT* 5V) - you
could damage your device by pulling the wrong pin HIGH.
