Does anyone know anything about this device, and whether or not it can run OpenWRT. I have one lying around and it would be great if i could get OpenWRT running on it so i could use it as a Wireless client.

Ok so i decided to to a little "digging" into this issue, and so far i've determined that:

CPU: Ralink 3050F
RAM: 32MB
Flash: 4MB

I was also able to get a serial console with the device at 115200 8N1

Below are pictures.

I just managed to get the bootloader over serial at a rate of 57600.

SO my question now is, Does anyone know how and if i can flash OpenWRT? It seems the hardware should be supported and i can get s TFTP recovery. Is there some generic build of OpenWRT i can flash?

bump?

The discussion might have continued from here.
