Installing OpenWrt 23.05 on the TP-Link ER605v2?

I am seeing the TP-Link ER605 v2 being supported :smiley:

Does anybody know how to install openwrt on this device?
Failing here while doing firmware upgrade in the TP-Link web interface.
Is there any other method?

thnak you

Apparently, there is no such device supported.

wtf ? ... :smiley:
In that case use the initramfs first, than the sysupgrade. You may have to use TFTP.

the initramfs did not work, n dont seems to have any tftp working on this device

This somehow seems to have gotten merged, but without clear instructions for installation. I'd suggest trying through the bootloader, it has a built-in webserver (like many newer MT7621 devices). You don't seem to need TFTP.

First stop for installation instructions is the git log, if there's no device page or data entry in the wiki.

@badulesia The ToH is not a reference unfortunately. Only the git log is conclusive, since device pages and data entries require manual labour.

Any updates about openwrt er605 v2?

What kind of updates? ER605v2 is working fine with OpenWRT.

will need more development to have this device from tweeking only openwrt device to professional openwrt networking usage. I think the wait might be long or might even never see a light and stick with its core banded firmware for micro/small LANs

I found this instruction for flashing OpenWrt on 605v2

did it work for you ?
because for me the password generator doesn't work, neither root or cli debug passwords work at all

Take a look here:
