Also a note: Got two international versions Mi Router AX3200, both with telnet unlocked
Production date: 08/2021
Bought from different stores in Bulgaria. Also there was one in the Xiaomi Store with the same production date. One of the suppliers stated that those are from the last batch, I don't know if that is true.
I find OpenWRT an awesome project and the Devs did a great job with adding support for this device!
My RB03 device finally arrived and i have tried several snapshots, including rc3:
openwrt-22.03-snapshot-r19381-b42511c007-mediatek-mt7622-xiaomi_redmi-router-ax6s-squashfs-factory.bin - currently using this one (OpenWrt 22.03-SNAPSHOT r19381-b42511c007 / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-22.140.66268-ef99568)
With each one though i get the same issue - the 5G wifi driver doesn't seem to start:

And i don't get to see a wlan1 interface. On the stock firmware both wifi radios worked. I haven't seen anyone mention such an issue and any hints for solving this are appreciated!
At the present moment (April 2022) there is no known way to enable telnet on the Xiaomi AX3200 (model RB01, international version). So if you have this device, you can check if it came from factory with telnet enabled. If so you can install OpenWrt, otherwise it is not possible to install OpenWrt on the Xiaomi AX3200 (model RB01).
I couldn't find anything related to this in the thread, so I apologize if this is a redundant question. But just to make sure: wouldn't I be able to bypass this restriction by soldering pins to the serial pins and use that to login as root? Or is there no active serial console on those pins?
Im using vnStat to monitor bandwidth and I think monitoring doesn't work correctly on this device, is that because NAT Offloading is enabled ? I selected wan interface and it detects about 30% of real bandwidth. Anyone else using vnstat ?
Got a November 2021 RB03 (running 1.0.19) and successfully installed OpenWRT yesterday. Be warned though that the web UI is Chinese with seemingly no way to switch to English.
I used DeepL and a lot of guessing to flash the beta firmware to get telnet access after which it was smooth sailing (well except for the part were my existing network already uses 192.168.1.1 as gateway )
