Build for CPE210 v3.20

I recently bought an CPE210 to have a wifi signal in my (small) garden. I choose to buy a CPE210 because v1, v2 and v3 are supported by Openwrt. I noticed that version of my CPE210 was 3.2 and I assumed I needed the v3 firmware. When I tried to upgrade the firmware, I got an error message saying that the selected openwrt firmware doesn't match. The hardware specifications of the v3.20 seem almost similar to th especifications of the 3.0 hardware, except the power (9 dbi vs 12dbi) and the angle.

Does somebody have experience with the CPE210 v3.20, and can I use the CPE210 v3 builds in some way?

Can somebody help me?

It might be enough to add the new version string to the tplink_safeloader support list:

CPE210(TP-LINK|UN|N300-2|00000000):3.20

The TP-Link firmware images seem similar, so this might just be it. However, I don't guarantee anything, of course. If you confirm this to be working, it could be easily patched into OpenWrt.

Similar issue reported here (in German):

I am absolutely willing to test this, but where should I start? Do I have build my own firmware image, based on the adjusted tplink-safeloader?

Hi, I've built an image for testing:
https://www.adrianschmutzler.net/upload/cpe210v32.zip

This is essentially a recent snapshot just with the additional strings added. You supposedly should be able to just flash the factory in the zip file.

Note that there is no LuCI included in those images, just like with the regular snapshots from master; if flashing works, you can then directly sysupgrade into a stable 19.07 version (ath79!) of the same device with LuCI builtin if you prefer.

Also note that although I had a quick look at the images from TP-Link, you always have a risk of bricking your device during test, e.g. when TP-Link has changed something in partitioning/bootloader I didn't spot from the image. So, please don't come crying after :slight_smile:

Thanx Adrian. And I won't come after you when my device is bricked.

I assume that the following debricking procedure is still valid:

How to use firmware recovery function of Pharos CPE: http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?81684-How-to-use-firmware-recovery-function-of-Pharos-CPE

If you are experimenting with CPE210 and you flash a wrong firmware and the device doesn't boot, you can restore the original firmware.

  • Set PC to fixed ip address 192.168.0.100
  • Download original firmware from TP-Link and rename it to recovery.bin
  • Start a tftp server (like tftpd32 or similar) and put recovery.bin in the working directory of server
  • Turn off your CPE210
  • Set the server interface of tftpd32 on 192.168.0.100
  • Push (and hold) the reset button while giving the power to the CPE210
  • Afther some seconds Tftpd32.exe interface will send the recovery for flashing
  • Wait and then go to 192.168.0.254 to visit the stock interface (if you used the stock firmware)

I will try your firmware in the next days.

I assume the TFTP procedure is still working, however I've made the experience that uboot in CPE210 only works for some devices. With v1, it really was a matter of chance whether you could use TFTP with your device or not. When I experimented with v2/v3 a long time ago, it worked for these devices.

Despite, as I said, I cannot tell too much about a device that I don't have. If you are unsure, you can always check whether TFTP works before flashing my firmware.

Apart from that, conceptually, there is always the chance that flashing might destroy your uboot partition, and then there won't be any uboot left to do TFTP with. However, it does not look like partitioning has changed, so that's quite unprobable in this case.

I know the risks. When I was using dd-wrt I bricked 2 of my precious devices :flushed:

I tried your image tonight and..... it seems to work!

Now trying to luci up and running...

Do I have to provide additional info to be certain that this is working?

Thanks for testing, actually I just found it only today because I did not receive an e-mail.

You already did most of the relevant testing.

What would be interesting beyond that:

  • Do the buttons/LEDs work as well?
  • Are the MAC address for ethernet/WiFi set up correctly (i.e. do they correspond to the label)

Thanks for checking.

I will push the change to master and after some days and your positive response also backport to 19.07.

Ah, and would you provide a

Tested-by: Full Name <mailaddress>

that I can include into the patch notes?

Update: Does the label state which region your device belongs into? Typically EU or US? Otherwise, just tell me which country you are in, so I can add that to the notes about device test.

No problem, I will check this

As far as I know, there aren't any buttons (except the reset button), so that is an easy one.

Yes, it's fairly boring, just want to make sure that they didn't change any GPIOs.

(Sometimes they just change a single one between variants or revisions, e.g. between WBS210 and CPE210 where just one LED is different ...)

I checked the items you mentioned.

  • The MAC address corresponds with the label, so that is ok.
  • The LAN and power leds dow work ok.
  • The leds that show the signal strength light up when I connect a device to the access point, so I think that is ok too.
  • It is a EU device.

Thanks for testing.

Do you want to provide a Tested-by for the commit message?

Just post a Tested-by: Full Name <mailaddress> here, then I will merge the thing.

Merged it without explicit tested-by now, but added a link to this thread.

I will backport this to 19.07 as well after a few days.

hi will follow this thread . looking forward for the build with luci .

thank you so much

sir did you mean that this has no webinterface ? thank you so much for making a test build . looking forward for the official released
