Thanks to Sin for posting firmware file and Lcdx for reupload it to english website.
I have TL_MR11U v2 and was able to flash it to usual TL-MR3040 firmware. Below a short instruction. Files available by link below.
1. Flash from Chinese firmware to OpenWRT

thanks to johndoe!

can i use this for mr11u v1.1?

Files of mveplus were removed from Dropbox.

Been trying to figure this out but so far not getting anywhere.
I tried flashing my MR11U v.1.1 a while ago and thought it was bricked.
Now found out about getting in with Putty but cant seem to figure out how to get the gui loaded.
Probably need to get it configured with command line to connect to wifi internet  but not having any luck.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Should work also for other Chinese routers like TP-LINK, FAST, Mercury, etc.

Use it at your risk!


anybody knows where the source of this tool can be found? recently some tp-link images appeared with ascii region code in image header and both tool versions i've tried (1.00 and 1.02) do not accept full hex range but numerical only (0-9)

The discussion might have continued from here.
