Hi, im having some trouble installing, getting this error when trying to install the factory 23.05.0 image from the firmware selector:
If i try to install the images in this thread, then the wrong file error pops up, renaming to something shorter doesn't work either.
In the thread above i noticed people were installing these images over the official 1.0.4 firmware but my device has the 1.0.1 which according to tplink website is the latest for this device, was the 1.0.4 removed at some point? or is it a different region firmware or something like that?
If you don't want an obscure image someone altered in some unknown manner then just leave it alone. @Hairo
After you overcome the boot loader security checks, you can flash any (much newer) official image you like, I for my part used up to 22.03 ...
I didn't check 23.05 so far but currently wouldn't want to try it anyway, it broke wifi on some other router for me (C2600).
However, you problem may arise from the hardware and/or country IDs used in the secure bootloader, and in your case the US id is different from a EU id.
Maybe I can find some time to build something for you
Vendor name : TP-LINK Technologies
Firmware version : ver. 1.1
Hardware ID : 0x86310001
Hardware Revision : 0x00000001
Region code : 0x00000000 (UN)
Re firmware to start flashing from, at that time some years ago I was under the (wrong) impression that the OEM firmware updates the PLC chip's firmware as well. I does not.
So using openplcutils and the images from the TP-Link forums is best to get to the latest PLC firmware then, but also not for the faint at heart.
Is this device officially supported? (if not this is not the appropriate forum and a PR should be made)
Or only supported via your altered firmware image posted in the forum?
If it is supported officially:
Is the needed install information above noted in the official Wiki - or again, only in an obscure thread?
Are the official images still broken? (i.e. the issue prompting the OP to make a new thread)
I'm not sure about the tenor of this statement or why - but I think it will help more users if the official images work and that the install instructions on the Wiki are OK (especially if some users are bricking their devices - we wouldn't know how to assist them). My apologies if you gathered some other meaning from my posting.
