Today I received my Xiaomi Router 3G. Unfortunately I have some problems obtaining SSH access on the stock firmware to install OpenWrt. The Wiki page seems to be a bit misleading here: https://openwrt.org/toh/xiaomi/mir3g
It says to either install the dev firmware to obtain access or to follow the steps described by a forum post: Xiaomi WiFi Router 3G. So silly me thought that installing the dev firmware would be enough. But it turns out that is not the case.
Also I unfortunately mixed up descriptions for the R3 model using code injection by accessing certain urls on the router, (https://openwrt.org/toh/xiaomi/mir3#to_get_sshdropbear_access) but that is another story. Turns out it probably don't work for the R3G model.
So what I'd like to know is: Is the described procedure from the forum post (Xiaomi WiFi Router 3G) still the easiest way to obtain SSH access? If so, the Wiki should be updated to reflect that instead of listing it as an "Alternative". I can do that, but just wanted to check, whether there is an easier way.
