Which builds specifically have you tried?

Ok, thanks.

Has anyone tried one of these builds on a V1.0 router?

I had all except one of them installed and all worked without a problem. Only thing I needed to do was to do one reboot after the install. Because all of them got stuck...
I flash the image wait 5 min, then I reboot it. After that it takes another 2-3minutes to boot up and then it is running just fine.
@ccmenb: Did you try rebooting the device?

Yes, I also tried rebooting the router, getting the same result.

I can confirm the hardware is identical in both versions, so it's bizarre as to why you are seeing any difference at all.

Historically, also, TP-link have always brought out version revisions eg v1.1, v1.2, v1.5, v1.7 but its the first number that counts. They never change the hardware if the first number is the same, just the pre-loaded firmware. If any hardware would have changed, it would be v2.x

Thanks

I can confirm that the version r48479 does not seem to work on v1.1.

Same here. Flash goes through, reboot, then no lights, no ping, does not seems to boot.

I wonder if the difference is in the contents of some of the flash partitions which are normally not overwritten by stock or openwrt firmware updates.

That would probably have to be something along those lines -- they haven't pushed out any variants on the firmware's available on the website, so they don't need something else along those lines (or they haven't released the firmware blobs yet).

I think the same, probably just some new mapping required. The HW is definitely identical so this should be supportable.

Did anyone ever figure out how to get the real MAC addresses out of the device?

Thanks

Just tested the latest r48548 build (Friday) and I have the same behaviour: flash goes through, router reboots, no led, no activity, just doesn't boot.

Thanks

The strangeness continues. I received and unboxed a C2600 today. It is labeled as v1.1 on both the box and on the C2600 itself. The factory software identifies it as hardware v1.0.

The QSDK build flashed and booted fine. (MAC addresses correct and matches sticker on hardware)
Arokh's R48548 build flashed and booted fine. (MAC addresses wrong as previously noted)

I will try to get a serial port installed tomorrow and possibly dig out the latest version of @bendavid's patches from OpenWRT-Devel and get my tree setup to build images for it.

Yes it is mysterious. I tried to run the r48548 build, again, therefore TP-Link's WebUI as the TFTP method, and once the device loads the flash and resets no longer back to boot. Same as @RedVortex.

Which R48548 file are you flashing with?

I have the same problem.
C2600 v1.1
Firmware: http://luci.subsignal.org/~trondah/c260 … actory.bin

I'm curious, what firmware from TP-Link are you using, the US or the International one ? I'm asking because, by mistake, I've installed the US one and I know it is different in some way from the International one because I cannot change the language or the country in the wireless settings anymore, it is stuck and grayed-out as United States.

Re-pushing the international one doesn't change anything, country is now fixed.

So, back to why I'm asking this: maybe we cannot install OpenWRT over the US-based firmware but it works over the International one ?

I also wonder if it is possible to re-enable the country selection, if anyone knows...

Hey guys. First of all a big thanks to bendavid for the progress he made without a working serial connection!

If experimented a bit with this device (V1.0) and the patches on the devel list - it's a bit difficult to get them together and fix them for current trunk. This is the patch I'm working with at the moment:

Is this patch complete and up to date? The ath10k stuff is partial already commited to trunk.

Everything is working fine so far except the mac address issue, which is pretty anoying. I have 6 vlans, with two ipsec tunnels bound to vti devices, multiple SSIDs with freeradius etc... But I'm experiencing a kernel panic round about every 24 hours. Sometimes the device reboots by itself, sometimes I need to reset it manually. I tried to get what's going on via a logread -f, but I don't see anything there. A serial connection would be good - did anyone make progress there? Is there anything else I can try to get at least an error message?

FWIW, I'm installing over the US firmware.

Today's project - clean out the solder in the serial port header holes, get a header on it, and try to get a serial console running.

Firmware: http://luci.subsignal.org/~trondah/c260 … actory.bin

I'm curious, what firmware from TP-Link are you using, the US or the International one ? I'm asking because, by mistake, I've installed the US one and I know it is different in some way from the International one because I cannot change the language or the country in the wireless settings anymore, it is stuck and grayed-out as United States.

Re-pushing the international one doesn't change anything, country is now fixed.

So, back to why I'm asking this: maybe we cannot install OpenWRT over the US-based firmware but it works over the International one ?

I also wonder if it is possible to re-enable the country selection, if anyone knows...

I have firmware with fix SSH from this topic. I can change Region.

@bdheaton  did You read this post?: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php … 16#p300116
My router does not have a chip U25. You have it?

C2600 in boot have: bootargs=console=ttyHSL1,115200n8
What is it HSL? Bluetooth?

Yup, read that post. I don't know that U25 is germane to serial port function. If nothing else, at least 2-3 people should try getting console working before we decide it isn't possible.

HSL1 is likely just the internal device ID for a UART on the IPQ8064 SOC. Different devices refer to on-board UARTs in different way. For example, an RPI refers to the hardware UART as /dev/ttyAMA0.

bendavid doesn't have the US model. The firmwares are actually identical between the US and international one, at least from the actual system files. There is a partition called product_info that I believe holds the lock to US only setup. I think that if that partial is empty, it acts as the international version. If you flash the US version, then it writes the country code to that which locks it.

Taking a break from that project. The 2 holes closest to the board edge cleared relatively easily. The next two are being a <insert creative language here>. Given how much heat it is taking to even start to melt the solder, I'm guessing they are VCC/GND vias and likely hooked to large tracks under the black solder mask (conformal coating?).

The QSDK build flashed and booted fine. (MAC addresses correct and matches sticker on hardware)
Arokh's R48548 build flashed and booted fine. (MAC addresses wrong as previously noted)

I wonder what the difference is between builds that makes the MAC be correct on the QSDK builds? Anyone able to discover how they are accessing the MAC from the partition data? I think this is the only bugbear for me (and others) and then it will be awesome.

Cheers
