I'm the owner of a Netgear wnr2000v1 and I'm trying to install LEDE / OpenWRT on it.
Sadly the only working build I managed to install on it is this one : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B8bRJIYStpVlZG13NEoyNGQ3a3M built by the dev who fleshed out the build process for this device. Here's his blog entry : https://www.tnhh.net/posts/lede-on-wnr2000v1-unsupported-hardware.html
Sadly, this build is getting old and I suspect it to be faulty as my device keeps loosing its connection to my main router. That's why I'm trying to upgrade it. But as stated before none of the builds available here https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/ work for me.
The OpenWRT ones refuse to load the image giving me a BAD CRC error.
And the LEDE ones refuse to mount correctly and always end up using a ram disk.
That's why I've built my own stripped LEDE 17.01.7 version using image builder and this command line (I plan on adding Luci later on when I get at least one build to work)
make image PROFILE=WNR2000 PACKAGES="-ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe -ip6tables -odhcp6c -kmod-ipv6 -kmod-ip6tables -odhcpd-ipv6only"
But alas, it's still refusing to mount properly. Here's the log of the boot process : https://paste.debian.net/1091932/
I'm not sure of what I could be doing wrong. I patched the boot loader as told by the wiki and follow tnhh instructions by the letter.
Does anyone have any ideas of what could be going wrong ? Any lead ?
Thanks for reading, even more thanks to those answering.
tldr : Lede mounts itself on a ramdisk for some unknown reasons
EDIT : it is working ..... I just failed too many times and posted it here without even checking
