Hi all. I see that there is a topic about this model Dir 853 a2 - For Developers - OpenWrt Forum, but it is closed for new replies and the downloads are expired, and it still doesn't seem to be supported, so I would like to ask if this could be worked on and added to official supported devices. I'm a programmer without much experience in soldering or whatever (neither what is required to make OpenWRT work), but I'm very curious and interested in making this a possible improvement for the project, just let me know how can I help.
@kar200 as you were the one the were able to help op there, can you please share the file or code you had there?
this is what I'm thinking "same as the DIR-2060-A1/A2"
but no one has been able to tell me what the firmware thinks it is yet ?
the last person just replied with the external sticker
I would test this via upload the DIR-853-A1 firmware via the normal
update web interface "most protection against invalid firmware"
if that's is successful it's expecting the DIR-853-A1 header
and to use the A1 openwrt files
Hi guys! Sorry the delay, it was not intentional. I was just able to check your suggestions and I got a crazy thing here. If I went to my local (Brazil) D-Link site, I would only see FW v1.1 and that matches current installed version on the router.
Checking web UI it displays "DIR-853 HW: A2, FW 1.10"
However, the firmware file says A1, so I took a shot and downloaded A1 FW 1.2 and tried to update via web UI and...
Well, now I can try OpenWRT for A1 and hopefully it will work.
