I finally received my wt1520's and followed your steps and they worked like a charm, however I could not get openvpn installed on the router. Can you please help me with this or point me in the right direction. Below is output from ssh. Thank you again!

opkg tells you that there's 1) current kernel version in trunk differs from image's kernel 2) not enough free space on internal flash to install openvpn

you can only fix these two problems by compiling your own firmware, all needed patches for this you can find in this topic, please read it carefully. and if you try to compile your image with openvpn, you should compile it with openvpn-polarssl, not with openvpn-openssl, because polarssl is smaller than openssl.

ps it seems that current trunk is slightly different from trunk i made patches for some time ago, so i uploaded unpatched trunk imagebuilder i used to compile to yandex.disk hosting:
https://yadi.sk/d/_HzmX73eYi8iY
update 10 Sep 2014, just use github repo, i updated patch.

Please, compiling your firmware with newer modules. Linux I do not have. I can not install dlna.

Пожалуйста скомпилируйте вашу прошивку с использованием свежих модуле. Линукс я не имею, и ничего в нём не понимаю. Я тоже не могу установить dlna сервер, появляется ошибка описанная выше.

Sergun, there's no need for any modules for dlna. Read openwrt wiki about ExtRoot(http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/extroot#openwrt.barrier.breaker.trunk) on external disk. Then you should have free space needed for dlna-server. I can't compile firmware with dlna, because there's no free space on internal flash for it, only with external disk.

I have connected an external drive and moved the system.

recently I have got one of this Nexx. and flash it to openwrt. have a question: can i flash it now to another build openwrt from webface? tnx

Could you tell me what I'm doing wrong, please?

I need to add kmod-usb-serial-cp210x, serial2file, serial2mysql, digitemp and ohci_hcd for USB. I'm trying to run USB based temperature sensor on my nexx box.

Thanks!

nexxt, see post 28

I'm sorry for my stupid questions, but I have a problem with the architecture. I'm getting this error:

/home/adminuser/OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ramips_rt305x-for-linux-x86_64/staging_dir/host/bin/opkg: line 4: /home/adminuser/OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ramips_rt305x-for-linux-x86_64/staging_dir/host/bin/bundled/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2: cannot execute binary file

I'm running this on VirtualBox with Debian:

Linux debian-i386-vdi 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.41-2 i686 GNU/Linux

What I'm doing wrong?

OK, it worked with this one:

Now, let's see how add/remove packages :-)

Any idea what is what here and which bin file I have to use to flash my router? I don't want to brick it

First time you used i386 debian, not x86_64 one. Fedora was x64, so worked fine.
All four you listed are not what should you achieve, look at name of my firmware. I think you didn't patched imagebuilder. Or you want too many packages and they didn't fit into image.

Gently, stop repeating this, if you want this in the trunk - make contribution to opensource send patch to openwrt, feel free to use my openwrt patches.

Hi hackru!
Help to build me firmware with LED, USB HDD (samba server), Wi-Fi. Would it be possible without connecting to the Internet from a flash drive via wifi to transmit data to mobile devices? What programs on mobile devices you want to use for this? The Ipad for example.

Hello hackru,


I received my Nexx yesterday and I have a problem.

I cannot use the WiFi Repeater mode. It cannot connect to my existing AP.

Appreciate if you can help me out.

Hello, shay_13_my, sorry, but i can't help you, unless you're using openwrt firmware. Original firmware is off topic here.

Hackru,


I'm a noob. Can you tell me step by step to how to install this firmware of yours.

I hope with your firmware I can get the Wifi repeater functioning as it supposed to be.

Hi Hackru,
I'd like to try to push your patch to the trunk if you don't mind.
Waiting till I get a router to test the upgrade procedure.
I have a questions for you:
1. Where did you take mtd3.bin? During regular build only *-sysupgrade.bin created.
2. May I use mtd to write a *-sysupgrade.bin image (as written in wiki) instead of writing mtd3, and then doing sysupgrade? What could be implication?

(Last edited by Romanp on 24 Aug 2014, 05:21)

I don't mind, feel free to push it, because i don't really have time for this. There is some unneeded lines in patch, like nonexistent LED, you'll see.
1. It's flash dump of mine openwrt mtd partition, i'm not sure, maybe it's not needed
2. You could try if you have spi programmer, probably it should work, but again, i'm not sure.
update, 2. tested on router like this(i will post jailbreak intructions little bit later), mtd3 is not needed, you can write openwrt sysupgrade directly, without mtd3 file.

Thanks a lot for the update, I've prepared a changes on latest trunk, build for new target works fine. Will post it once I'll be able to test it. This could take about month since I didn't get a router yet.

PS: If there is any volunteer(s) to test a patch, let me know I'll send a patch file to you in PM to keep this branch clear.

Hi all,

I recently purchased newly launched model by nexx - WT3020H
I am getting very slow read speed from the USB storage connected to the device - max that I can see is around 1MB/s
Can someone please confirm what is the read/write speeds you are getting on your devices (wt1520).
Also is it possible to flash openwrt on this wt3020h device? This device has MT7620N chipset 8MB flash 64Mb ram.
Thanks.

Well, but still i recommend flashing twice, first time with mtd_write, second - with sysupgrade. Seriously. Sometimes filesystem with mtd_write becomes non-critical corrupted, don't know why.

You sure about flash and ram? Then it will be very hackable device. BUT. There's no official openwrt for it, because of no open-source wifi drivers. I saw sdk from vonets based on ralink sdk and some chinese openwrt fork.
