I saw that the Afoundry EW1200 router already is supported by OpenWRT(LEDE, but I have one Afoundry EW750 device.
Can I hope for the future for my device to be supported? Or already I can flash my device with the EW1200 firmware?
Thanks in advance.
I decompressed the config file and found two folders under the "wireless" folder, named respectively:
Could somebody tell to me some words on the support for this device?
I am searching information on EW1200 because it seems the only Afoundry device already supported by OpenWRT/LEDE and it seems very similar to the EW750.
I'm not an engineer, but I have some computer knowledge and mostly I've seen the goodness of OpenWRT/LEDE and I would like much to replace the stock firmware with it.
For now I can say that ther's no SSH and Telnet capabilities.
Thanks in advance.
Without either a boot log or some poking around in a running system, it's hard to know what is in there. Blindly flashing another device's firmware is not recommended as the chances of hard-bricking your device are pretty high.
If it is based on OpenWRT, it might have a failsafe mode which might enable either telnet or ssh, depending on the age of the source and how they may have modified it. You might try clicking the reset button, if it has one, during the early boot.
At least with recent versions of OpenWRT on some devices, the "power" light will flash a few times a second early in the boot process. Clicking the reset or WPS (or ...?) button during that two- or three-second window triggers failsafe and makes the power light flash even faster.
In the time you wrote the above messages, you could have already opened your device and you could have taken photos of the relevant chips, including flash + RAM. 10min later you could have updated https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Afoundry_EW750.
That would have been helpful, not only for OpenWrt but for everyone interested in this device.
Hello, I can't post a picture of the main chips, because the router in question is very difficult to disassemble: you need a very long screwdriver that I don't have.
Could I flash this router with OpenWRT based on the information above?
My seller replied stating this device has:
Hello, finally I have opened the device, and took a photo of the most relevant chip, I suppose.
This could help to get the correect version of Openwrt?
It would be very difficult getting other pictures, since I dont know how to disassemble this device more than this.
