Need full dump - TP Link Archer VR2600 installation

Hey, trying to install OpenWrt on this device via the TFTP method, but it does not seem to be going into TFTP boot mode when I hold the button. I have tried holding for 5, 10 and 15s but it clearly boots into the regular OS. I have tried 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.66 and 192.168.1.66 as my TFTP server IP addresses. I also tried renaming the OpenWrt firmware file ArcherVR2600_1.0_tp_recovery.bin as well as following the suggested ArcherC2600_1.0_tp_recovery.bin

Is the only way to install OpenWrt to use a serial connection? If so, should we update the docs? Just wanted to use this method because I am having difficulty getting the case open at the moment - got the screws out but I don't want to crack the plastic.

Older TP-Link firmwares used not to have a TFTP server onboard, no idea if that applies to the VR2600 as well. If you're still on stock, it might be a good idea to update to the most recent TP-Link firmware (bootloader gets replaced as well).

This is what I'm running (latest available in Australia). I tried upgrading to the VR2600v version and the EU version but it will not accept them.
Firmware Version:1.5.0 0.8.0 v0050.0 Build 170425 Rel.35576n Hardware Version:Archer VR2600 v1 00000000

Anyway, I am fine opening it and using the serial method. Got the screws out but not sure how to pop the top off without breaking it

You can also try to listen on the network interface with wireshark to obtain the needed ip address and file name of the tftp request...

No such luck, I guess it does not have the TFTP server enabled?

Don't filter only on tftp packages... If I remember it correctly, there are some arp "who has ip" requests before any tftp happen.
It would be best to connect only your device to the listening ethernet port.

How long do I need to hold the button before it interrupts the boot?

Another question: does the case come apart where the silver meets the bottom black part or in the gap?
Never mind I got it. Just stick a screw driver in the gap and twist (after removing the scews from the feet in the bottom). It comes off very easily.


Well guys, it was nice knowing you
I got a bit too quick on the keyboard and accidentally erased the bootloader. Getting nothing from serial

note that 0x3200000 should have been 0x320000 :sweat_smile:
Anything I can do with just a serial cable to recover or do I need a flash programmer? Anyone have a full dump of the default flash?

Tried the other serial port and looks like we have CFE!

biangbiangmian, did you manage to fix your VR2600? I have done something similar to you and incorrectly flashed my VR2600. It looks like need to reflash mine also. Did you manage to find a full oem dump?

Thanks
Al

No, I am still in need of a full dump
