ssh in to 841N and run these commands

wget https://volatilesystems.org/dl/openwrt/targets/tl-wr841n-v11/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841-v11-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin -O /tmp/firmware.bin

sysupgrade -n /tmp/firmware.bin

Hello, will this reset my current setting?

Because my ISP use PPPOE for authentication and I won't be able to physically access my router for a couple days, if PPPOE username and password is reset after sysupgrade, I won't be able to access my router.

Yes it will but if you drop the -n from the sysupgrade it should retain settings. But the current config won't have a Luci config file so the new install probably won't either if you retain settings. This may cause Luci to not work so I'd suggest retaining the -n to start fresh.

sysupgrade  /tmp/firmware.bin

Hey, thanks for fast response.

On a 2nd thoughts, can I just append the current /etc/opkg.conf

dest root /
dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
option check_signature 1

with this line using vi command :

src/gz chaos_calmer_base https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/base
src/gz chaos_calmer_packages https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/packages
src/gz chaos_calmer_luci https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/luci
src/gz chaos_calmer_routing https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/routing
src/gz chaos_calmer_telephony https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/telephony
src/gz chaos_calmer_management https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/management

so the final /etc/opkg.conf file will be like this

dest root /
dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
option check_signature 1
src/gz chaos_calmer_base https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/base
src/gz chaos_calmer_packages https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/packages
src/gz chaos_calmer_luci https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/luci
src/gz chaos_calmer_routing https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/routing
src/gz chaos_calmer_telephony https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/telephony
src/gz chaos_calmer_management https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05.1/ar71xx/generic/packages/management

Then I re-run

opkg update
opkg install luci

to install LuCi, will this work?

If it does, can you can help me verify if this is the correct packages URL is correct, that would be good.

https://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_cal … /packages/

should I be using http or https?

Apologize for noob question.

This is a standard opkg.conf on a 15.05 since yours is 15.05.1 I'd say yours should work. Try https first. You'll get errors when you run "opkg update" if it doesn't work.

Beside OpenSSL problem, it seems openwrt still trying to download from volatilesystems.org, any idea why?

wget: can't execute 'openssl': No such file or directory
That means you have to use http not https

Alright I'll give it another try, but any idea why it stills trying to download from http://volatilesystems.org?

Is option check_signature 1 necessary?

Okay http instead of https fixed it.

Everything is good after opkg update, but I still getting one 404 because it still tried to download packages from http://volatilesystems.org

Should I just ignore this and run opkg install luci?

There's /etc/opkg.conf, but the feeds should be defined in /etc/opkg/. Check the files there and replace if necessary. /etc/opkg.conf is only for general settings, all it should contain is this:

dest root /
dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
option check_signature 1

Also, you don't have enough space to install LuCI on a 4 MB device probably, but if you just do a regular sysupgrade and add the following files, I think you should be fine. It's certainly worth giving a try.

First add the configuration files, only then perform the upgrade:

/etc/config/uhttpd

config uhttpd 'main'
    list listen_http '0.0.0.0:80'
    list listen_http '[::]:80'
    option home '/www'
    option rfc1918_filter '1'
    option max_requests '3'
    option max_connections '100'
    option cert '/etc/uhttpd.crt'
    option key '/etc/uhttpd.key'
    option cgi_prefix '/cgi-bin'
    option script_timeout '60'
    option network_timeout '30'
    option http_keepalive '20'
    option tcp_keepalive '1'
    option ubus_prefix '/ubus'

config cert 'px5g'
    option days '730'
    option bits '1024'
    option country 'DE'
    option state 'Berlin'
    option location 'Berlin'
    option commonname 'OpenWrt'

/etc/config/luci

config core 'main'
    option lang 'auto'
    option resourcebase '/luci-static/resources'
    option mediaurlbase '/luci-static/bootstrap'

config extern 'flash_keep'
    option uci '/etc/config/'
    option dropbear '/etc/dropbear/'
    option openvpn '/etc/openvpn/'
    option passwd '/etc/passwd'
    option opkg '/etc/opkg.conf'
    option firewall '/etc/firewall.user'
    option uploads '/lib/uci/upload/'

config internal 'languages'
    option en 'English'

config internal 'sauth'
    option sessionpath '/tmp/luci-sessions'
    option sessiontime '3600'

config internal 'ccache'
    option enable '1'

config internal 'themes'
    option Bootstrap '/luci-static/bootstrap'
    option OpenWrt '/luci-static/openwrt.org'

So my question is :

1. Should I just ignore this and run opkg install luci?
2. Can you confirm if LuCi can be installed on 841n v11? Since your previous post says that 841n doesn't have enough storage to install LuCi even though I've seen multiple videos of people installing LuCi on 841n.

Read my instructions carefully and follow them completely. You only read half!

Hey sorry to bother you again, I'm confused if your latest instruction is meant for your latest build or previous build without LuCi?

That being said, I just broke my installation because after I install LuCi (from your old build), I tried to install luci-app-ddns, since I don't have enough space the installation stop in the middle and now I cannot access luci. It is safe to just do a fresh install from your newest build with this command?

wget https://volatilesystems.org/dl/openwrt/targets/tl-wr841n-v11/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841-v11-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin -O /tmp/firmware.bin
sysupgrade -n /tmp/firmware.bin

Thanks again

Like I said, you would not have enough space to install LuCI.

Follow these instructions:

  • Remove whatever packages you installed after flashing the firmware

  • Create the two extra configuration files like I told you in my post from yesterday

  • Flash the new firmware just with sysupgrade, without the -n, so you keep configurations.

Make sure you pull the firmware with http:// and not https:// OpenWrt doesn't support that by default afaik. If in doubt, reread the instructions carefully, and take it slowly, double check your commands.

I ended up flashing to your latest build

sysupgrade -n /tmp/firmware.bin

And it's all good now. Thanks a lot!

I'm wondering is there a way to check packages size before install?

I have 284kb free space left and wondering if it's enough for "no-ip / ddns" package.

sysupgrade -n /tmp/firmware.bin

Thank you! This worked perfectly! Appreciate your hard work.

Will this new bin file work on the oem firmware using GUI?

I have already gone through the the maze of getting 15.05.1, finding the opkg install luci command didn't work since there were no packages and then managing to brick it by trying to install dd-wrt, then unbricking back to oem firmware!

So am now a little wary. Does the latest build include luci? Thanks.

Yes it includes LuCi. I can confirm this.

So it does! Lovely. Got it working. Had to telnet into it first and then SSH'd before finding the http worked but maybe that was just me. Now I just need to install something to snazz up the GUI a little and get the firewall locked down. Can anyone recommend packages to install?

If you need to ask for that, it seems you don't really need any? Besides, your flash is very limited, you only have a few kB left. I wouldn't recommend installing anything extra at all.

Under Software it says 'Free space: 100% (13.95 MB)'. Memory shows 7100kB used of 28708kB. Also on reboot it's going back to default settings with no password.

Btw, I appreciate all the work you're doing on this update, Borromini.

That sounds very weird. Afaik the v11 has 4 MB flash like its precedessors, so if other owners can confirm and check... The RAM sounds about right. Did you mod it to accomodate a larger flash chip by any chance?

Can you try a 'firstboot' over SSH, reboot and see if your settings stick at that point?
