Some possibly (very?) useful D-Link info and a request for some help...
For the DIR-2660 (and probably all other D-Link MT7621 devices) the
failsafe mode is easy to enter (after soldering 3 pins to J1) by hitting "f"
at the right time, but the full boot console requires a password. It turns out
that the password is stored in an area of flash. In the failsafe terminal type:
mknod /dev/apsoc_nvram c 251 0
nvram_get 2860 Login
nvram_get 2860 Password
At least for me, the 'admin' (eg: root permissions) pw was the normal router
admin pw, with a string of the form '@Txxxxxxxxx' appended to the end.
My question is - how to safely install OpenWRT?
Using the recent (2/13 snapshot) of the DIR-2660 and even using dirkomatic@'s excellent tip
), a checksum error (2d2d2d2d2d) is printed to the console
It is running a old (2013 - Barrier Breaker) version of OpenWRT underneath the D-Link GUI.
But it is heavily customized - there is no /overlay, and the preinit sequence seems to be very
different than any documentation that I could find. It is currently running 1.01 but the UBoot
version is reported as both 1.1.3 and 188.8.131.52 within a few lines of each other.
I've checked all the other postings, but the decrypt work would not seem to apply here, the\telnet hack not needed due to the serial cable / pw.
Have a fair amount of openwrt experience, but not on D-Link. Willing to risk the router, but prefer not.
(Apologies if anything wrong - first posting)
