We are working with your iMX7 Dual uCOM and we need to run OpenWrt on it.
I know that till the moment OpenWrt 18.06 only supports imx6.
How to customize an OpenWrt image which can work with iMX7 Dual uCOM.
Can you please guide me on what I can do? What do you recommend?
How can we know when OpenWrt will add the support of imx7 family?
Is there a time plan for that? @jeff
OpenWrt is a volunteer effort.
When and if a specific platform and device will be supported depends on many things, including
- Upstream support (Linux) for the platform
- Upstream support for the peripherals
- Desire for someone to take on the work
- Availability of devices to test
"We" suggests to me that you may be a commercial enterprise. As such, you are probably in good position to work on the port yourselves, especially as I'm not aware of any end-consumer wireless routers running on that platform.
My question was just a try to know how OpenWrt decides to support a device.
Thanks for your infromation.
It doesn't "decide" to support a platform. It's users implement support and push it upstream for everyone to benefit from.
