As you possess the hardware and would be doing [most of] the work, can you provide more information?

  • Serial output?
  • What does each link entail?
  • Are you going to provide any details, information, etc.?
  • What have you done thus far?

links to models and source code gpl
sorts that are similar in characteristics

As you should have read in Add support for TP-LINK AX55 V1 - #2 by slh, there's no SOC support for this target in OpenWrt, so it would be up to you to start from (almost) zero.

You are missing the definition of 'minimal', you will need a lot more than 'minimal' to access the flash, enable ethernet/ switch and wireless subsystems. Nor will a patch proposed last week magically make it into v5.15, no one says that it's impossible - but it needs serious development on your side.

Well, I understand that the patch just came out.
but it will help the development?

'Help', yes - but not more than a drop in the ocean.
