Topic: HAME MPR-A1 - Small and cheap router with built-in battery

The content of this topic has been archived between 12 May 2015 and 2 May 2018. Unfortunately there are posts – most likely complete pages – missing.

Squonk--My device arrived (MPR-L8-V8), and I downloaded the patches from your post mentioned above after doing "svn up".  The first two were applied without errors.  There were some errors from the third patch because of changes in the downloaded files.  I tracked them down and got everything patched correctly (I think).

When I did "make menuconfig", after selecting "Target System: (Ralink RT288x/RT3xxx)" and "Subtarget: (RT305x based boards)", there was no "HAME MPR-A1" available under "Target Profile".

I went back and checked each patched file, and they look ok to me. 

What might I have done wrong, or what do I need to do to get the "HAME MPR-A1" option to show up?

There probably has been some changes in the trunk since I did the patches: I created them against revision 34872.

So you may check out this particular revision instead of HEAD, using:

svn co -r 34872 svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/

... or let me some time to freshen them up!

You may have to remove the "tmp" directory in trunk, then redo a "make menuconfig": I found that there are some dependencies that are not refreshed correctly (as they should) if you patch files related to profiles like we do here...

I deleted the contents of the tmp directory and with "make menuconfig" I got the HAME MPR-A1 option.  It's running now--we'll see how it turns out.

It doesn't work: problem in the mac80211 package, because of some mods in trunk 10 hours ago!

Serge's RF (second) patch does not apply cleanly any more, it also needs to be modified.

The easiest if you want to test your MPR-L8 board quickly is to go back to revision 34872 until I fix the mess in the patches brought by latest trunk...

Just to update, unfortunatly after talking to the factory the header modifications will not be done. Apparenty the research and development time to remap the new pcb is not possible for the time being for our expected initial order quantity. This would have to be kept for the next potential model or release of the product.

With this in mind is there any possibility that the device can still be used to interact with peripherals without the header? Im not very tech savvy but would it be possible just to use the existing i2c and free gpios to connect to the peripherals perhaps through soldering?  I ask so that i can be sure whether or not i can mention that it is capable of communicating with devices/robotics etc in my marketing campaign or whether its impossible without the header discussed previously.

For now the confirmed upgrades are the 32mb ram and 8mb flash. Perhaps if the device can support larger flash than i will try to upgrade it even further. Will have to check the limitations of the uboot and compatible chips.

Please also make 8MB flash version if possible. Is your goal still to be ready in february? Will you have worldwide availability with free shipping?

Squonk--my compile left to run last night failed as you described.  I'm starting the process with r34872.  Thanks.

I will probably have time to work on it this week end: I will update the patches so they run again against latest trunk.

After "svn co -r 34872 svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/ r34872" I got to pick "HAME MPR-A1" but when I ran "make V=99" I got the error shown below.  I'll wait and try again when the patches are updated.  Thanks for your work.

The Device will have 8mb flash and 32mb ram. This is confirmed and tested by us successfully.
Worldwide delivery also a Yes.

Free shipping is a complicated one. Due to our business strategy, we might be offering free delivery only to the U.S and maybe even the U.K.

Our timeline still holds true for a February release date. However due to a few setbacks and delays in marketing and press releases it may be end of February instead of the orginal plan for beginning of February.

I had to add a missing newline at the end of each file from PasteBin (you can also replace all CRLF by LF, but this is not required), but beside that , I had no problem with revision 38472:

Hi can you share .config file for this router?
Thanks a lot.

There probably has been some changes in the trunk since I did the patches: I created them against revision 34872.

So you may check out this particular revision instead of HEAD, using:

svn co -r 34872 svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/

... or let me some time to freshen them up!

You may have to remove the "tmp" directory in trunk, then redo a "make menuconfig": I found that there are some dependencies that are not refreshed correctly (as they should) if you patch files related to profiles like we do here...

Can someone send compiled firmware image? Because I tried 10 times without a succesfull build. Maybe my system is debian ,and dependencies are broken

Squonk--with your code suggested in post 160, I successfully compiled the firmware.  I loaded it with tftp on the device without errors, but when I boot, it terminates with this:

This is similar to your post 87 boot log up to here

[    0.650000] VFS: Mounted root (squashfs filesystem) readonly on device 31:4.
[    0.660000] Freeing unused kernel memory: 176k freed

After this it goes off, with hotplug2 apparently detecting an error.

Any ideas about what may have gone wrong?  (I'm awaiting my 8mb flash modules, so no great loss if this is a bust--it was experimental).

Squonk--with your code suggested in post 160, I successfully compiled the firmware.  I loaded it with tftp on the device without errors, but when I boot, it terminates with this:

Ouch, only 8MB SDRAM hmm

I guess this is the main reason for the crash sad

My MPR-L8 is 16 MB, and I find it small already... I thought it was the smallest possible capacity available for these routers...

Can you tell me exactly what is written onto the SDRAM chip? Maybe the bootloader is guessing wrong?

SDRAM marking: Etrontech EM639165TS-6G N49AG05AGB749.13ZQ

According to the datasheet, this is "8M x 16 bit Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM)", so should be 16MB. 

Datasheet: http://www.qinuo.com.cn/Attaches/Produc … 848109.pdf

So I wonder why only 8MBytes is detected?

This seems to be an old bootloader: it doesn't even detect correctly the Flash chip used...

You can try to edit the kernel command line in uboot using printenv and setenv, and add a "mem=16M" option to it.

Squonk--thanks for the suggestion.  I wasn't sure where to put the "mem=16M" option.  I first added it freestanding, and it had no effect.  Then I added it to the "addmisc" variable.  That also had no effect.  Here is my printenv

bootcmd=tftp
bootdelay=2
baudrate=57600
ethaddr="00:AA:BB:CC:DD:10"
ramargs=setenv bootargs root=/dev/ram rw
addip=setenv bootargs $(bootargs) ip=$(ipaddr):$(serverip):$(gatewayip):$(netmask):$(hostname):$(netdev):off

u_fs=era bc540000 bc83ffff;cp.b 8A100000 BC540000 $(filesize)
test_tftp=tftp 8A100000 root.cramfs;run test_tftp

stdin=serial
stdout=serial
stderr=serial
addmisc=setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,57600 ethaddr="00:AA:BB:CC:DD:10" panic=1

How should I add the mem variable?

Type:
setenv ram 16M

no equal sign.

Finally I've build succesfully. With default settings works very good but when add luci interface it can't operate.

If you only have 16 MB of RAM, then this is not enough to run LuCI.

Yes I have 16 mb memory, I'll try extroot and swap options. I think it will be possible.

Yes, it may be a viable option!

Or if you have a hot air station and a 256 or 512 Mbit SDRAM chip available, just replace it...

I updated the patches required to build OpenWrt on the HAME MPR-A1 and other Ralink RT5350-based routers to work with the latest trunk revision (revision 35145).

This has been made necessary, as major changes took place recently in the trunk:

  • switch from Linux kernel 3.6.11 to 3.7.2

  • switch from package mac80211 2012-12-06  to 2013-01-07

This caused major disruptions in the previous patches proper applications.

This is now fixed, and I took the opportunity to add the JEDEC definitions for GigaDevices GD25Q32 and GD25Q64 chips.

As PasteBin is no longer appropriate to keep track of revisions, I switch to a GitHub repository:
https://github.com/Squonk42/OpenWrt-RT5350

A brief introduction, build instructions and patch contents are provided there.

Enjoy big_smile

Thank you @Squonk. I'm going to make a build for my Poray M3 with the new patches and report what happen.

Not good in features Linux.
My HAME MPR-A1 works fine Yota LTE LU150.
My MPR-L8 is not working Yota LTE LU150.
Two questions:
1. You can flash the MPR-L8 => HAME MPR-A1 A1_2.3.105.214_20120821024324.bin ?
2. Support Yota LTE LU150 MPR-L8 OpenWTR ?

Thank you.
