Adding OpenWrt support for AVM FRITZ!WLAN Mesh Repeater 2400

I saw a PR for the current AVM Repeater 3000 flagship and want to ask, if there is any chance that the AVM FRITZ!WLAN Mesh Repeater 2400 could get OpenWrt support, too?
I already have two 1750E with OpenWrt and maybe the 2400 is not that different.
Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance!

According to boxmatrix, the FRITZ!Repeater 2400 uses the QCN5502 SoC.

Because the TP-Link Archer A9 v6.x has the same SoC, its chances of OpenWrt support will be similar. I suggest to refer to this post to get an idea what needs to be done. Are you planning to work on OpenWrt support for the FRITZ!Repeater 2400?

In case you just want to use a device without development, also consider the FRITZ!Repeater 1200 and 3000.
They both use the IPQ4019 SoC and are already supported by OpenWrt. Note that I do not own either of them, my recommendation is based on their specs and discussions in this forum.

Hello everyone, Archer A9 V6 support has been added to OpenWrt (https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/commit/9c335accfe57f3049850b8fdb684c9e7e5feea82). It is therefore possible to obtain a firmware for Fritz 2400 too ?

It won't magically materialize by itself, but that certainly helps (keep in mind that QCN5502 support is still very basic and rough, e.g. no 2.4 GHz wireless support yet).

Ok. Obviously no claims on your part (which you already do a lot) but I hope it can be developed. The original software is not that great. I reported some requests to the help desk and they didn't even bother to answer. Thank you.
