Dynalink DL-WRX36 Askey RT5010W IPQ8074 OpenWrt support

This shouldn't be a big problem as fw_setenv is provided in the stock OS so they can just paste the commands provided in the install instructions. We could have another condition where if active=2 then run tftpboot, then the user can paste everything in one go and sysupgrade will set it back to 0 or 1 to boot from NAND.

@robimarko for your backlog I think the dts is wrong the wan maps to eth4 & eth3 seems to be mapping to eth0 ... noticed this as I was setting up veth devices for mwan3 ... maybe the dts is wrong ... just thought to report thank you

first impressions ... the ipq8072 really come out ... this is a setup with with wan's using mwan3 ... I am going to leave it running on this build but only two antennas seem to do much better than the xiaomi 3600

Can you clarify a bit?

the markings on the router wan& eth1-4 etc don't match.... wan = eth4 what it seems are the definitions on the dts ... maybe something else but just reporting

i am using mwan3 with veth/macvlan hence finding this out ...

Ok, I think I traced them properly, but will check once I get home.

all good with your last patch so far ... will report back if there any problems

How did you flash it? Using ubiformat?

yes ... boot the itb image ... flash both rootfs and roofs_1 with
ubiformat /dev/mtd18 & 20 -f /tmp/openwrt-ipq807x-generic-xiaomi_ax3600-squashfs-nand-factory.ubi -s 2048 -O 2048

important for this to work is that from uart you save the uboot environment and setup the bootcmd as described on one of my posts ... note I don't think this is optimal but at least it works and I am able to do sysupgrade etc without bothering with uart

can somebody upload the config to enable ssh with a working password again?
Thx!! :). The old links are expired ...

@robimarko one observation based on testing performance with "ondemand" that response is providing a much better performance that on what is on "schedutil" by default.

The processor changes much more quickly to upward Hz on ondemand than on schedutil... any possibility of changing to ondemand by default? thank you

I dont plan on moving back to ondemand, we moved to schedutil as it generally has better performance.

edit:
bootm did the trick ...


I have part set up and my tufts server is copying the initram but the device is not rebooting ...

I gues I am missing something ... ?

Help is highly appreciated :smiley:

can somebody share a working image with wifi and ethernet included / or a config. In my self compiled one is too much missing. No ethernet and complains about the wifi board-2.bin

if you forked robi's repo you can add to your https://github.com//openwrt/tree/ipq807x-5.15-pr-dynalink/.github/workflows the action from https://github.com/robimarko/openwrt/blob/ipq807x-5.15-pr/.github/workflows/ipq807x.yaml and customise. It should be able to give the essentials to boot

here's an extract below ... you may want to add CONFIG_TARGET_ipq807x_generic_DEVICE_dynalink_dl-wrx36=y

           - name: Generate config for IPQ807x Generic
              run: |
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_ipq807x=y" > .config
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_ipq807x_generic=y\n" >> .config
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_MULTI_PROFILE=y\n" >> .config
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_ALL_PROFILES=y\n" >> .config
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_PER_DEVICE_ROOTFS=y\n" >> .config
                echo "CONFIG_TARGET_ROOTFS_INITRAMFS=y\n" >> .config

uboot ... in order to set variable on uboot you need to use "setenv" check this example https://stackoverflow.com/questions/67224268/how-to-save-u-boot-environment-variable-persistently

make sure you save the variables in the end using saveenv

Now it works!

I had to set the commands in "" to get it set properly ...

like:

setenv setpartfs "ubi part fs;ubi read 0x44000000 kernel 0x80000000"

otherwise the command is truncated.
