Hardware

Raspberry Pi 2 v1.2

OpenWRT does not list an official image for the Raspberry Pi 2 v1.2 board. Neither the Pi 3 or Pi 2 image works. This is because the Raspberry Pi 2 v1.2 board uses the bcm2710 SOC (same as the Pi 3) but both images don't properly handle the Pi 2 v1.2 board and as such, both versions fail to boot.

To get OpenWRT to work on this board, image the SD card with the bcm2710 image (the Pi 3 version) and then:

  1. Mount /boot
  2. Copy bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb to bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb

A copy can be found at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/raw/master/boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb to bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb.

Raspberry Pi

For all other Raspberry Pis, the installation information can be found at https://openwrt.org/toh/raspberry_pi_foundation/raspberry_pi

The installation process involves dd'ing the image to the SD card. You may wish to resize the SD card after the image has been written. To do so, resize the data partition and then run e2fsck -f /dev/mmcblk0p2 and resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2. More info at https://elinux.org/RPi_Resize_Flash_Partitions#Manually_resizing_the_SD_card_on_Linux.

# dd if=openwrt-brcm2708-bcm270{8,9}-sdcard-vfat-ext4.img of=/dev/sdX bs=2M conv=fsync status=progress

## Optionally resize the data partition
# e2fsck -f /dev/sdX2
# resize2fs /dev/sdX2

Serial is enabled and is available via GPIO pins 8 and 10 for TX and RX respectively.

Buffalo WZR-600HP

Flashing OpenWRT from DD-WRT was very straight forward. There is an issue with getting USB working however.

Links:

Flashing (on stock firmware):

# cd /tmp
# scp foo@host:~/openwrt-18.06.1-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin .
# mtd -r write openwrt-18.06.1-ar71xx-generic-wzr-600dhp-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin linux
## This may take about 1-2 minutes, and the -r will automatically reboot the device

USB Issues

USB support?

  • opkg install kmod-usb-printer
  • opkg install usbutils


  • opkg install kmod-usb-ohci kmod-usb2

I am only seeing:

There should be a device at /dev/usb/lp... but there isn't using OpenWRT 18.01. This definitely worked with the stock firmware. LEDE 17.01 was unable to detect any USB devices at all.


On the stock firmware...

Reverting to Stock Firmware

# arp -s 192.168.11.1 02:aa:bb:cc:dd:20
## Type the following, but don't run the PUT command just yet.
## Power on the device. When the router's link light blinks on startup, press the enter key.
# tftp 192.168.11.1
tftp> binary
tftp> rexmt 1
tftp> timeout 60 
tftp> trace 
Packet tracing on.
tftp> put wzr600dhp-pro-v3.0-r30356.enc

## The transfer took about 33 seconds and the diagnostic light will blink rapidly initially, then followed by a slightly slower blink. It took another 5 or so minutes for it to come online afterwards.

## Clear the ARP table:
arp -d 192.168.11.1

The router will be accessible at 192.168.11.1 with the new stock firmware with the stock username/password 'admin' and 'password.

Tasks

Backup

Run oci export to dump all configs. Useful for generating a periodic config backup.

$ ssh root@openwrt "uci export" > config
