Add support for Xiaomi Redmi Ax5400 (white version)

xiaomipedia

Released: March/22 (Only on China) RMB 399 (US$ 63 / Rs. 4,770 / BRL 350,00 approx.)
Code: RA74

Specs:
-1GHz dual-core Qualcomm IPQ5018 SoC+ 1GHz NPU
-512 Mb RAM/128 Mb ROM
-3 10/100/1000M auto-adaptive LAN ports (Auto MDI/MDIX) , 1x 10/100 / 1000M adaptive WAN port (Auto MDI / MDIX)

Looks like it has the same BASE hardware of the Xiaomi Ax5400 Gamer, with the exception of 2.5g lan port.

I think a very cost effective Router with a decent hardware, by now, looking at exploits, infos, and maybe we build a snapshot rom for it.
Thanks!

There's currently no Linux kernel support for IPQ5xxx.

Search for IPQ5018 here at the forum, if you want additional info.

Thank you! I will do that.

Can you tell me whats the problem with this SoC? Proprietary drivers? This soc isnt too new, its on market since q4/2020.

no one (Qualcomm, I guess) have added the SoC support to the Linux kernel.

I can work on the porting of IPQ5018 to ATH11K. is there an exploit working for this model?

Yes, look at Xiaomi Ax9000, that exploit seems to work on this device too.
Please give a try:

I don't have an AX5400.
I am certain that this exploit does not work on all models. If somebody here can check, I might get one

I can try only in a few weeks, i'm working on a x86/nuc custom project now
But its almost certain working.as it's almost the same hardware of Xiaomi AX6000

the exploit has nothing to do with hardware, so if they are using a newer version of qsdk, it might not work
