OpenWrt support for Linksys MX4200

There's a v1 and V2 of the mx4200, anyone know what the difference is?

Nothing majorly different seems to have exact same specs, knowing Linksys it's probably because they changed the supplier for some parts

Looking at the kernel source and logs we have IPQ8174 is a rebranded IPQ807X, uses same DTSI files

@supersebbo could you by any chance try to boot Xiaomi AX3600 initramfs through UART and see if it boots, id do it but i dont have a uart to usb dongle

Hi, I have both a V1 and V2 MX4200 and a USB to UART dongle.

Also is there is guide / info of how to boot though UART? I assume 3.3v is used on this board? Thanks

You just plug it in through uart and the use putty to connect and get shell access command is tftpboot 50000000 IP:LOCATION_xiaomi_ax3600-initramfs-fit-uImage.itb; bootm
