I have ZyXEL NBG6716 and want to use the ath79 current version 21

i have ZyXEL NBG6716 and want to use the ath79 current version 21

my flash size is

[ 0.923740] m25p80 spi0.0: found mx25l3205d, expected m25p80
[ 0.930023] m25p80 spi0.0: mx25l3205d (4096 Kbytes)

[ 0.971735] nand: device found, Manufacturer ID: 0xad, Chip ID: 0xf1
[ 0.978219] nand: Hynix NAND 128MiB 3,3V 8-bit
[ 0.982725] nand: 128 MiB, SLC, erase size: 128 KiB, page size: 2048, OOB size: 64

i look at below

ath79: add support for ZyXEL NBG6716

but it does not say what to do after i unlock the zloader into uboot

and the sysupgrade 4m is confusing too

any hints? thx

model generic install instruction https://openwrt.org/toh/zyxel/nbg6716
since the instruction doesn't appear to cover 21.02, install the 19, and upgrade.

i am using 19, but thats from the ar71xx (support 19 only), now its using ath79 (support 21 only) and the flash layout is changed between them


  • ar71xx = no future support after 19.07.x; no ar71xx images will be built with the next stable release (20.x)
  • ath79 = future support will be available even after 19.07.x

i cant reply/bump to that because its closed. but the user there didnt update, whereas i want to update

Does this help?
