Trying to get a D-Link-DGS-1210-28P (version F1) moved across to OpenWRT
-its lying about in my garage and I have a project that needs many ports so I thought-why not?
I've looked at
but the upgrade via the UI keeps on failing-just comes up with a message saying the firmware failed (it looks similar to one you would get if you tried to up any router that supports OpenWRT-but your using a firmware on the target device that was for another manufactuer). I've did this countless times with no joy.
Has anybody managed to get this device flashed through the GUI?-happy to crack it open and do it serial wise but before I do that, reaching out to the community.
Thanks for the confirmation-unfortunatley, whilst trying to get the JTAG method done, I blew up the power supply on the board! So have ordered another one off Ebay-well, its a DGS-1210-16 time time, so it should be the same upgrade instructions....
Meanwhile, I'm trying the JTAG method on a DGS-1210-10P but for some reason (and tried 2 USB to serial TTL devices), I can see the output but any keystrokes from my Mac (tried it on a Windows machine as well) are not being recognised by the switch (specifically the ESC key when trying to stop autoboot)-I'm going to try perservering but will probably need to wait for Mr Courier to arrive
I can get into the switch with the normal GUI but no serial keystrokes-ah well.
Cheers guys-unfortunatley, I cant get any keystokes recognised on the DGS-1210-10 model, so will need to wait until the "new" switch arrives-and then see how it goes (before I blew up the -24, the same USB to serial adaptor worked fine, so not sure what is going on there).
Can you enter characters at a later point, once the switch has fully booted up?
Control sequences (such as [ESC]) can be a bit special, so trying alternative terminal emulators (e.g. GNU screen et al) might be worth trying, if you have an x86 system at your disposal, you might also try a linux live CD or Windows.
