first post here, I got left with one FritzBox 7360 v2 and was looking to make it more exciting. OpenWRT came to mind, checked if it was supported and there it was - supported.
After few things, I managed to follow the instructions on the WiKi here but to no avail.
Managed to get to file transfer and than it broke with 425 error (I think) during transfer of the image.
It was still replying on 192.168.178.1 and I could FTP to it.
Than found one post where it was stated to verify the ENV with quote GETENV linux_fs_start and there was no ENV set (message.
Set it to 0, reboot, same thing as before, FTP available.
I figured there is nothing to lose so I went with the recommendation from following blog:
If there is no recover.exe available for your FritzBox, you can try to boot from the alternative partition set.
Step 1 :
Open a Command Line (as Administrator/Root) and type :
Connect the FritzBox with your PCs LAN Port. Now connect the FB with the power supply and as the LEDs of the FB blink red immediately press Enter. Now you should be asked to type name and password. Use adam2 for both.
If not, you maybe missed the right point in time. If so, try again a few times or try to start pinging the FB while plugging in so the FB is being hold in the Bootloader. Now you should be able to connect using the ftp command.
Step 2 :
Find out which partition set you are using right now.
quote GETENV linux_fs_start
Step 3 :
Depending on the Output of the previous command type (using the opposite partition set)
quote SETENV linux_fs_start 0
quote SETENV linux_fs_start 1"
On variable 0 same thing, FTP available, nothing else. Set to 1, now only green light is on and nothing happens afterwards. Only 2 Gigabit ports are active, other two are not responding and are not in "up" (no light of switch shown when connected).
Is there something I can do now? There is no visible communication form it (used Wireshark) at all on the network.
Thank you, you knowledgeable collective!
