Add support for D-Link COVR-X1860

Blink red ?

only red, no blinking

openwrt-ramips-mt7621-dlink_covr-x1860-a1-squashfs-recovery.bin is not intended to be used with sysupgrade, openwrt-ramips-mt7621-dlink_covr-x1860-a1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin would be the correct one in this case.
Not sure what is happening when you sysupgrade with the wrong image, but my expectation is that recovery mode is still possible afterwards because the boot loader is not modified.

Also no red blinking when you try to enter recovery mode?

what are the settings to connect over ttl?

U need click reset and put power on and wait for blink.

ok, now is blinking red and the network card show a link is up
but no website is possible to open

U need manual write lan IP like mask

ok, found the problem the recory page is on now I can upload a file, with one is the right for this?

Did you reset the IP configuration to DHCP?

No set a static ip, dhcp is not working. Ping to is possible and also ssh.

================= FAILSAFE MODE active ================
special commands:

  • firstboot reset settings to factory defaults
  • mount_root mount root-partition with config files

after mount_root:

  • passwd change root's password
  • /etc/config directory with config files

for more help see:

  • root_password_reset

root@(none):~# firstboot
This will erase all settings and remove any installed packages. Are you sure? [N/y]
/dev/ubi0_1 is not mounted
/dev/ubi0_1 will be erased on next mount

That looks strange. Where did you get the image from?

not 100% sure but from here Release COVR-X1860_Build_20230724 ยท RolandoMagico/openwrt-build (
so will try again with this one?

I didn't find your version r23086+1-3591353f51 in my builds. But yes, you can try

Do I need to manually reset the device after recovery, or will it reboot on its own?

And use a chrome based browser, other browsers might not do the upload correctly

The device should boot automatically if the flash process was successful. If flashing didn't work, it usually will stay in recovery mode and continue blinking red.

I used EDGE Browser.
Upgrade was successfull but no reboot.

And now openwrt is like this:
