Am tweaking server hardware. Site will be down for this weekend. You can use this google drive link for now.
Flash the initramfs-kernel-factory.img via Linksys UI. Then once openwrt loads, log in and flash squashfs-sysupgrade.bin.
You can ask questions here: Help with flashing Linksys EA8100 -MT7621
Thanks for the heads up. I installed initramfs-kernel-factory.img but now router LED is not turning on but it seems like router is turned on. With LAN connected I can ssh my router from linux but cant open in browser. But dont know how to proceed for next step.
I was also following installation process for other linksys routers and was trying to install Luci but i am getting this error "Only have 0kb available on filesystem /overlay, pkg luci needs 1"
Cannot install luci"
How should i go forward?
Did you flash squashfs-sysupgrade.bin in a ssh session after flashing initramfs-kernel-factory?
I didn’t do that as i couldn’t find out how to do that. Some pointers will be very helpful.
And now i managed to boot the router into its own firmware by restarting it 3 times so i also want to know how do i reboot into openwrt firmware when i would flash squashfs-sysupgrade.bin.
Scp the sysupgrade file into /tmp then follow the "Flash the new OpenWrt firmware" section in this page:
Contrary to what the page says, my ea8100 openwrt bin does not preserve settings across upgrades.
