Adding OpenWrt support for Xiaomi AX6000

Pls. do not be confused by Xiaomi AX6000 and Redmi AX6000, they are different.
If you are asking Redmi AX6000, it is already working with snapshot.
I just bought a Redmi AX6000 and flashed, fully working hardware, thanks to those talented people.

I'm sorry, is this the topic about Redmi AX6000?

Hey, can you send me the kernel and patches? i'm trying to port openwrt based on qsdk to xiaomi ax3000RA80 (same soc ipq5018+qcn6122 but 256ram ) and i'm having problems to make wifi work

Hello, could you please help me by explaining how to generate kernel patch from AU_LINUX_QSDK_NHSS.QSDK.12.1.R3_TARGET_ALL.

And how to apply the patch afterwards


Any news on OpenWRT firmware for Xiaomi AX 6000 (not a Redmi one)? Maybe some ETA on it?

Looking forward to see more good news of OpenWRT supporting Xiaomi AX6000!


do you have any updates?
your idea is very interesting!


I wanted to ask if there is currently already support for the Xiaomi AX6000 AIoT?
As with @yuanjianpeng his router, it also has a Qualcomm IPQ5018 installed.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to assemble the firmware myself so that I can create a suitable image for it.

There is no one working on ipq50xx so far, and quite a lot of very basic and fundamental kernel support is missing for this SOC, I wouldn't see that changing anytime soon either.

Have a look at (supported-) ipq807x based devices instead, which aren't necessarily more expensive (e.g. the Dynalink DL-WRX36 is even ~35% cheaper than the ax6000), but are working - now.

Thanks for the info.
I decided to go for the Xiaomi Redmi AX6000 after all.
I just ordered it for a few euros more.
I want to hang the router on the wall, this is a bit tricky with the Dynalink.
The MediaTek MT7986A is supported with the Snapshot version.

Hangs on the wall very easily with two screws.

I have this router since 2021 and I am beginning to regret having changed my previous router WRT32B for this one and it seems that it is giving a lot of difficulties, it doesn't even let me open the ports correctly, I had to connect my PC to the ISP router to do this, I don't know what you think, I'm losing hope that Openwrt can be installed without problem's

Just wondering, I've seen this:

Ipq5018 support was added to mainline. Go nuts

(source - Adding OpenWrt support for TP-Link RE700X, IPQ5018 - #14 by ct25)
Is this in any way related to us AX6000 users?


Would like to leave this info here briefly to save people from problems:
