Topic: Build and upload firmware for WR710N V2.0

The content of this topic has been archived on 1 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hi,

On the Wiki, agren wrote, that the v2.0 of this hardware is not supported but it has been seen working with a modified makefile. I've got two questions about this:

Was the Makefile modification something like:

-$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR710,tl-wr710n-v1,TL-R710N,ttyATH0,115200,0x07100001,1,8Mlzma))
+$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR710,tl-wr710n-v2,TL-R710N,ttyATH0,115200,0x07100001,1,4Mlzma))

Only to get it running on the 4MB flash?

The other is that when I want to install the firmware with the original router software, I get the message:

Error code: 18005
Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name.

Is this because of the naming convention of the filename or because of the content of the file? I've tried serveral filenames with the same content without any luck. The filenames I've tried are:
- wr710nv2-en-up.bin
- wr710nv2_en_3_17_0_up(150104).bin
- TL-WR710N_V2_150122.bin

Can anyone (maby even agren) help me get this figured out?

Hi,
I'm searching too...

Maybe we should replace 0x07100001 with 0x07100002 ?

if we look at the other profiles, it seems to be related with the model and version numbers...

$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR703,tl-wr703n-v1,TL-WR703N,ttyATH0,115200,0x07030101,1,4Mlzma))
$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR710,tl-wr710n-v1,TL-WR710N,ttyATH0,115200,0x07100001,1,8Mlzma))
$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR720NV3,tl-wr720n-v3,TL-WR720N-v3,ttyATH0,115200,0x07200103,1,4Mlzma))
$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR740NV4,tl-wr740n-v4,TL-WR741ND-v4,ttyATH0,115200,0x07400004,1,4Mlzma))
$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR741NV4,tl-wr741nd-v4,TL-WR741ND-v4,ttyATH0,115200,0x07410004,1,4Mlzma))
$(eval $(call SingleProfile,TPLINK-LZMA,64kraw,TLWR743NV2,tl-wr743nd-v2,TL-WR741ND-v4,ttyATH0,115200,0x07430002,1,4Mlzma))

My linux box is not ready to compile...

YES !!! I succeeded !

replace in the Makefile
- tl-wr710n-v1 with tl-wr710n-v2
- 0x07100001 with 0x07100002
- 8Mlzma with 4Mlzma

then,
make image PROFILE=TLWR710 PACKAGES="-ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe luci openvpn-easy-rsa"
(add openvpn, add luci, and remove ppp)

Then flash from tplink gui with no error !

Then it works !

Many thanks Cees !

hmmm... made a mistake, openvpn is openvpn-openssl not openvpn-easy-rsa
Now, with openvpn-openssl + luci, I can't build: images too big !

I tried to remove, usb things, ipv6 things... but no.

So, I've downloaded Attitude Adjustment instead of Barrier Breaker.
I've just changed the version and name of the old wr703n profile (cause wr710n does'nt exists) , build, flash, and everythings seems to be OK.
Just the second ethernet port is not working.

Now I'm trying to configure the openvpn client...

Great! Thanks a lot for posting your progress.

Can you send me the image?
I made an image, but something went bad... no error on compilation, but the router is dead.

Thanks.

Hi Filipe.
Here it is: https://mega.co.nz/#!sREVQKgI!7--tJRVdX … k595QXtrHs
(my first one, with Barrier Breaker and luci, without openvpn)

Are you sure the router is dead ?
Did you try a long push on the reset button till reboot ?
Maybe you can try to plug on the other ethernet port ?

If you set a static ip address on your PC with 192.168.1.2, you cannot ping 192.168.1.1 ?

Hi,

I have installed "openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr710n-v2-squashfs-factory.bin" from here:
https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots … x/generic/

The installation was successful, but I have no WebUI LuCi because of insufficient space.

Question:
Can I flash the other image from lab34?
If yes, how?
And how could I flash original TP-Link image?

THX

Did you have any luck restoring the factory firmware?

The discussion might have continued from here.
