Topic: WGT624V3 - Flash upgrade and Redboot bootloader - A little help

The content of this topic has been archived on 1 May 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Dear all,

   I have just replaced my WGT624 V3 flash from 2 MB(25P16) to 4MB (25P32) for I was trying to get rid of the VXWorks Bootloader without jtaging it (due to the lack of information). After building a flash programmer, I was able  to back up my router's firmware.  The next step was copying my backed up firmware to a new 25P32 and booting the WGT624 in order to see if everything went right. The WGT624 recognized the extra space but it complained about the cheksum.

   Then using the source of the Redboot cobra from DD-WRT, I could compile a fresh Bootloader and I could give a try on it. It worked properly even though I couldn't set my MAC address properly.

  Now, I am trying to build a good kernel to get my WGT624 back to life and free from VXWorks. However, up to now, I haven't succed.  I have tried different OpenWRT flavors. I couldn't boot a Meraki's kernel on it so I tried the litestation 2, which I suppose is based on the ar2316 SOC, from Ubiquity.  The router boots properly but the madwifi terminates on error. I tried to compile newer madwifi versions but I'm not as keen in linux programming as with hardware modifications.
   The latest test I tried was using the fonera's port tailored to the WGT624 hardware, based on the kernel 2.4.36.  Once again, It boots up properly (I even have access to the "fon's" console) but when the madwifi's modules are loaded the system crashes.

I would like some help to compile the madwifi port or perhaps the new ath5k in order to replace them into the rootfs to bring back to a new life this nice piece of equipment

Regards.

I have openwrt working on a wgt624 v3 booting from ftp with the vxworks bootloader, all configuration prebuilt in the image file. very little change required (there's an unhandled irq that spams the console infinitely after startup, had to disable it). using trunk 11573 as of now. can you post instructions on getting redboot working?

How did this thing evolve?
Any luck?

I had a post how to build madwifi from the latest port to openwrt to 7.09.

I could make Openwrt 8.09 working in my WGT624V3 after striping everything I could from the kernel yet it shows some unstability. It seems it lacks of enough memory (only 8 M) because it only worked after shrinking the kernel as much as I could.

I could also compile the Fonera's buildroot to work on the WGT (kernel 2.4.32). However, I had to fix all routines related to board and radio config to find the correct possition in the flash memory but I couldn't make the Marvell switch 88E6060 to work properly  in order to get LAN, WAN and possibly Vlan.

  All in all, It works but I still have an unstable router so I may change the SDRAM to a 256 mbits part to get rid of the paging fault since I don't have enough skills to shrink the kernel to overcome this problem (as the micro version of DD-WRT that I have in my WRT54G V5).

I've been working on trying to get the latest trunk version to work on a modded wgt624v3 but I'm pretty stuck. The thing is I *had* it working perfectly after patching mvswitch.c a little. But now I'm not able to get it to work again after reflashing.

I have changed to flash prom to a M25P64.

I initially had problem to get the 88E6060 marvell switch to register it self but after changing a couple of lines in mvswitch.c i got it to be detected.

The problem is I can't ping or telnet the router via wired ethernet, looking at ifconfig eth0 seem not transmitting anything at all. Telnetting over wlan is working perfectly.

Any Ideas what the problem is? I've a feeling I've forgotten something.

I have been playing around with a WGT 624 v2 and I ran into an issue similar to yours with the MV88E6060 switch.  In my case, the PHY driver for the Marvell switch was not being selected by the AR531X Ethernet driver.  I filed a ticket and submitted an initial patch to fix this problem, if you want to try it, see Ticket 13413.  Consider using the second "robust" patch.  Best of luck.

I have been running into trouble installing redboot on my WGT-624 v2.  I can run it from ram, but if I fis init, the FIS directory block is written over my board config data (which contains MAC addresses and other info).  I am trying to modify a redboot to place the FIS block in a different location.  Additionally, it appears that the WGT-624 v2 has two blocks of configuration data at the end of the flash, the first, penultimate block is the normal board configuration data, the second and final block appears to have information about wireless regulatory information or something related to the wireless.  I wonder if it is possible to shrink or combine these to recover the use of one more eraseblock.

I have been able to get Barrier Breaker to load from TFTP using both ram based Redboot and the VXWorks boot loader, and boot from a ramdisk and run, but I need to have some storage on the flash to store config files and extra packages.  I wanted to put  a modified microredboot which would load OpenWRT from tftp and then have an overlay for JFFS from ~1.5 MB of the flash remaining after redboot, and all the config blocks have been taken into account.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to get redboot to properly initialize my hardware when running from flash.  I have been unsuccessful with both AP43 and AP48 based redboot ROM images.  Do you have any pointers, or could you share your .ecc file and any patches you needed to get redboot working on your device?  I understand this may or may not work for me due to the hardware differences between the board revisions.

Hello,

I have been trying to get the combination of ar2313 and 88e6060 switch to work in a dlink di624 rev. 3c wireless router.
The suggested patch to force the mvswitch phy driver to attach instead of the generic one from Ticket 13413 was
helpful.
I did some further research on this, and found in drivers/phy/phy_device.c the function get_phy_device(...) interesting.
The phy_id is checked against 0x1fffffff in that place, and in that case, NULL is returned.

What about doing a further check in that function against phy_id == 0 ?

The modifications of the ar231x.c, as suggested in Ticket 13413 are not necessary, if the mdiobus scan doesn't
populate the phy table with a bunch of phy's with a phy_id of 0. If the zero phy's are not in the table,
the first real phy_id found is in my case 0x01410c87 at mdio address 0x10, which is the one from the real
88e6060 device.

Perhaps anybody cound answer the question, if it is allowed for a real phy to have a phy_id of zero, respectively
if there exist real phy's, which have a zero phy_id ?

Kind Regards,
Gerald
