Topic: Build own Image for TL-MR3220 / MR3420

The content of this topic has been archived on 7 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

hi...
I from Indonesia...
I have router TL-MR3220 with openwrt kernel 2.6.39.. http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … actory.bin
and it running very well

but I want to build own image my MR3220 on my ubuntu 10.10.

and I try compile it with command "make menuconfig" and "make" but "target profile" no option for "TL-MR3220"

so I try again with image builder (download this http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … 6.tar.bz2)

but it same problem, that no option target  for TL-MR3220..

I think, with the target TL-WA901ND who will produce an image with a TL-MR3220 the capability, but have not dared to flash into my router

may be, there are  a solution??

thank

Not backfire supported. Just trunk for now.
That also means no support for you, specially wink

thank Bro Nilfred...

that means we have not chance to modify the trunk version??

Checkout trunk instead of backfire, use the search engine and read the wiki.

now I have easy step.
and this's my step in ubuntu 10.10:

 nay@HPmini:~$ mkdir naywrt  
 nay@HPmini:~$ cd naywrt 
 nay@HPmini:~/naywrt$ svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/
 ........this process download source......................................

 nay@HPmini:~/naywrt$ cd trunk
 nay@HPmini:~/naywr/trunk$ make menuconfig
 .................this process make config target AR71XX, mr3220, etc..........
nay@HPmini:~/naywr/trunk$ make defconfig
 ................this process check for ready to compile................. 
nay@HPmini:~/naywr/trunk$ make download
 .................this process download file source..........
  nay@HPmini:~/naywr/trunk$ make v=99
 ................this process compile to be image...........................

You must select a target before "make defconfig" or default broadcom is selected:

echo CONFIG_TARGET_ar71xx=y > .config
make defconfig

Then is advisable to run make without any further modification to menuconfig for test and debug purposes. If fail at this point must fill a bug and wait another revision...
BUT, before any make is advisable to download sources at once:

echo CONFIG_TARGET_ar71xx=y > .config
make defconfig
make download

This fill up "dl" directory, so the real time saver is keep "dl" away from distclean reach:

echo CONFIG_TARGET_ar71xx=y > .config
make defconfig
ln -sf ../../dl
make download
make

Finally if all goes well you are free to issue "make menuconfig" and go on.

Just wanted to thank mang for this build which I am now using on my TL-MR3220. Hopefully I will figure out how to use openwrt as a repeater, I have read quite a bit but it is all a bit confusing to figure out.

Hi mang, I'm also interested in creating my own image for my mr3220. Actually I'm configuring the makefile for the image, can you post the .config you used to compile your image? what way you used to flash the ap with your custom image? the mtd method?
thank you in advance.
