Add support for Linksys EA6350 v3


#42

Hi escalion,

Sounds cool - so in theory you will have latest version of OpenWRT with support for the EA6350v3? How would I use the work that you complete if all goes well?


#43

If all goes well, I will share a git patch to apply to the OpenWRT git source, which will give you the Linksys EA6350v3 option in make menuconfig.

Once I'm 100% happy with it I will push it to the maintainer of the ipq40xx target :slight_smile:

Note that I haven't implemented spi0.1 yet, and the ath10k firmware defines are based off of the ASUS RT-AC58U which has the same chipset - which I need to dig through now.

Watch this space!

Great progress!!

linkwifi

Got WiFi working now, going to test out the sysupgrade file - if all goes well I will tidy up my commits and submit a patch.


#51

Did you extract the BDF-s from stock firmware?


#52

I modified the 11-ath10k-caldata script from hotplug.d to pull the caldata from ART on the SPI flash.


#53

That's not enough, since they all reuse the same BMI IDs for the IPQ40XX series you also gotta extract the BDF-s for 2.4 and 5GHz.
And generate a custom board-2.bin for them, then you include it in ipq-wifi package.
And off course push it upstream on ath10k mailing list


#54

I'm slightly confused - why have the cal data saved on flash to need a different file again?

I have seen this repo, is this the script I need?:

Is there any documentation on the correct way to do this?


#55

Calibration data is unique to each device, but BDF files are unique to design of the board and QCA unfortunately distributs them to all vendors with the same BMI IDs, so that is why upstream board-2.bin seems to recognize everything but that is not correct.
In order to calibrate the radio fully you need BDFs from stock firmware.

Yes, that is the correct script.
Take a look here, its explained really well.

I can make it for you if its an issue, you just gotta provide me with a bootlog to read BMIs from

Also, you gotta add a ath10k propery to the DTS.
Like this:


Linksys EA8300
#56

Perfect, thanks robimarko.

I'll have a read through all of the information and give it a go. (Interesting because 8devices-jalepeno is the board ID I used to get it working)

If I hit any issues is it okay to drop you a message on here?

How long do the guys upstream take to add support for new BDF's?


#57

Ok, give it a go.
But please dont reuse IDs as that way radios are way off on calibration.

Sure, please contact me if any issue arise, I have been doing a lot of IPQ40xx boards lately.
Upstream usually takes a long time, that is why we have a ipq-wifi package until its upstream.

I unpackaged the stock firmware and in /lib/firmware you can find BDFs to regions.
We usually use FCC or EU/ETSI ones.


#59

Brilliant, I managed to grab the board files from the original firmware, generated the board-2.bin and added that to the ipq-wifi package. Boot log seems good:

#60

Have you added the qcom,ath10k-calibration-variant to DTS?

Any chance you have your tree public so I can take a look at it?

For ath10k you can check the archive for September, I submitted BDF-s for 2 devices


#61

I have indeed.

I will push it to git shortly, I will post the link here. Just trying to work out how to flash the file without having a serial console - Linksys check the firmware header before doing a sysupgrade. Looking for a workaround.

Awesome, thank you.


#62

I've managed to work out the "signature" that linksys use to verify updates - and I've succeeded in writing the image at /dev/mtd10 - HOWEVER, this isn't loaded by u-boot at the address I expected, so I will have to work out what is going on there.
I'll get back to that on monday :slight_smile:

Here's my commit:

Let me know what you think :slight_smile:


#63

Left some comments.
Please, dont mess with sysupgrade image but instead make a build recipe for Linksys image and call that for factory image.
