Can you please rpovide me latest version of mi4a firmware global version.
Thanks in advance
and thanks for guiding

i got it.


what is the latest openwrt firmware which i can install on mi4a directly with openwrt invasion?
is it best to install breed on router or openwrt ?
what is best practice?

please guide.

doesn't matter, install whatever people reported works, then upgrade.

breed is a boot loader, not a router OS.

read the thread linked to, previously.


Breed is not is but it’s easy to load is on router.
Rather than openwrtinvaion way

according to

Please have a look @ point after 4.

1)download TinyPXE.zip and unpack it.

2)connect ethernet cable to the router, set static ip to your local network(192.168.1.x)

3)turn off your router and hold down the reset button then power on your router when power LED start flashing slowly release it .

4)run pxesrv.exe (it is fully configured), click "Online" ( i have used international version 3.0.24 to flash, file renamed as test.bin)

after clicking online, within a minute, in router yellow light will stop blinking and will be constant on position,

wait 7-10 minutes when power led turns blue or keeps on blinking blue, power off your router then power on it.

note: if yellow or purple light keeps on blinking, this means wrong firmware is selected.

It is the method from the first answer.
