Topic: Support for (Easylink) elink el-ml150 (AR9331)

The content of this topic has been archived on 7 Apr 2018.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.

I bought elink el-ml150
in ali-express
(more details on the original Chinese retailer is available in
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z … obao_shop)

I am looking for that device source and configuration to customize its firmware.

It seems that they (the module producers) have not released build configuration and the OpenWrt source codes that are used in that module and maybe the build patches for that specific hardware configuration.

Can anyone in OpenWrt community ask or want them to hand out the sources and the firmware, which is required to exploit the daughter board hardware configuration?

To my understanding it seems that the OpenWrt source licensing requires manufacturers to release and make available to public all the GPL source codes that are used in their OpenWrt implementation?

Thanks

Hi,sina:

I am huangfc, EL-m150 has been designed by me.

about the sources code,you can use this patch for openwrt. i do not know how to submit to original.

Hi huangfc,

Hi,sina:

I am huangfc, EL-m150 has been designed by me.

Did you also designed the ELINK mini ? Awesome piece of hardware … Are these modules RF calibrated ?
If I could breathe a wish I would like to see a AR9341 mini module.
The benefit would be the GPIO multiplexing - the functions (e.g. I2S, 2nd Uart …) could be mapped to any port.
