Realtek based 2.5G/10G Switch Help

I recently acquired a 2.5G/10G switch that is based on Realtek RTL9310. It has 16x 2.5G & 6x 10G.

It has no branding, only a model number that doesn't produce any usable results.

I'm looking for help to find firmware updates for it, MFG official, compatible from other MFG, or open-source is fine.
I was thinking OpenWRT may be a fit?

Attached is the console boot output with technical info of the switch.

        Welcome to Layer 3 Managed Switch

Press any key to continue, check at the bottom..

I believe part of the reason why the RTL9310 port didn't go further was the odd bootloader on the ZyXEL XS 1930. This was before all the progress on the GS1920 series, and that support is still far from complete. A RTL9310 switch with U-Boot is interesting.

Is there a way for me to extract the firmware from the switch I have?
If so, I could post it, maybe it will help since it is U-Boot.

Not sure there is an easy way until you get network running in OpenWrt.

But having U-Boot makes it much easier to upload and test initramfs images. If I understood correctly, all the XS 1930 testing was based on serial upload.

I just got the same switch from a liquidation store for dirt cheap. I am currently looking around for firmware for the switch as well. It's a shame that OpenWRT doesn't support it out of the box. I will let you know if I find any more info on official firmware updates.

I actually ended up finding this post on the ServeTheHome forums that has a link to the manuals on dropbox. This seems to be the right version if that's helpful.
