Support for Meraki MS220-8P

Hey,

I stumbled upon a thread in the archive that's about getting LEDE/OpenWrt support for the Meraki MS220-8P:

Cisco Meraki MS220-8P

They gathered some good information about the device including an tarball with the GPL licensed source code from Meraki, that is still downloadable from their page:

switch-8-10-20170825.tar.bz2

This tarball includes the Linux kernel-release 2.6.32.63. Maybe we should ask for an updated version of the GPL source code.

For me, I think it's a bit sad, that this POE switch is laying around here unused. Unfortunately, I'm not understanding the process of adopting the Meraki specific adjustments and additions to successfully build LEDE/OpenWrt.
So, I'm hoping that there are some other folks around here that are having this switch too and want to get LEDE/OpenWrt support for the device.

For now, I've managed to get access to the devices console (without any accessible commands) and dumped the SPI NOR Flash. I hoped for an 14-Pin EJTAG header besides the NOR Flash, but haven't got it working yet.

There is a 16MB NOR Flash and a 128MB NAND Flash onboard.

  • Macronix MB25L12805D - 16MB NOR Flash
  • Micron MT29F1G08ABADAWP - 128 MB NAND Flash - SLC, page size: 2048, OOB size: 64

Like the others said, it seems to heavily rely on Vitesse. Under the main cooler switches an Vitesse VSC7424XJG-02. ("btw... if we are getting support for it, can u recommend some thermal adhesive for getting that thing back on :grin:")

Just ask, if you would like to have the dump of the SPI Nor Flash.

I've got one that I'd be willing to do testing/troubleshooting on. I would really like to get openwrt running on this thing. I'm an IT professional, not necessarily a hardware hacker but I'll contribute however I can.

This thermal adhesive seems to be highly rated.

Actually, Can you provide the dump of the SPI NOR flash for me? I may have a coworker or two that may be able to help.

Hey Dane,

I've sent you the download link for the dump of the SPI NOR flash. Have a look into your messages.

Hi All,
I've got one of these units and the older root access methods seem to work (connect serial port header, change serial number, reboot unit and hit key for shell access).

I've downloaded a copy of the open source package above and managed to build it.
From what I can tell we are missing:

  • Complete script to build it to a complete, flashable image (the code builds the toolchain and packages for the target but no kernel or UBI image structure)
  • Confirmation we can boot via other targets on the bootloader, or shall we just keep the same UBI names?

In regards to updated kernel etc. I think this should come later as Vitesse support has likely been deprecated over the years. Let's just build on 2.6.32 for now.
Realistically this is a fairly simplistic switch, so I think the most we could ask for is to run openwrt with VLAN and PoE support, and perhaps STP.

I know there's a bootlog here but here is my bootlog, from a switch that has never been connected to the internet so never updated to a later kernel (also means I have a switch that is easier to root):

Attached mtdinfo and ubinfo, showing the split between the NOR partitions and UBI.

I have successfully dumped and transferred MTD0 (loader1), MTD1 (boot1) and MTD5 (bootubi) as these are our missing pieces of the puzzle to help understand how to boot a squashfs image.
I am having trouble mounting them, 0 & 1 are raw data images so not sure how to read the data inside them. MTD5 is UBI so should be able to attach it to a dummy block device once I have all the dependencies installed on my CentOS box.

Hi Michael,

I have little experience with building OpenWRT or embedded systems in general. However, I spent some time poking at my switch and was able to dump the NOR and NAND flash data over the last week. I was also able to modify both the first and second stage embedded initrd image to gain root access.

The loader (loader1, loader2) source code can be found from meraki-firmware/linux-2.6.32/arch/mips/vcoreiii/loader/head.S and it only loads boot1 into memory before executing it. If the loader fails to validate the image, it tries again by loading boot2. The first stage boot image (boot1, boot2) contains a header (the asm code outlines the header format including the CRC checksum), the linux kernel, and the initrd image (as a xz/cpio archive). I modified this initrd image with my own busybox binary so that I could flash a modified version of the firmware to part1 that has a root password set in /etc/passwd.

Let me know if you want copies of the dumps I have or the modified images I used.

Hi Guy, since I also own one of these puppies would like to know if there is any progress in getting an nice open wrt switch/router with poe

Hello leol,

How did you dump the firmware from the device? I am able to access the various command groups via serial connection.

I have MS220-48LP I'd like to be able to convert into a locally managed device.

Is the MS220-8P firmware also applicable for the 48 port as well?

Serial boot dump from MS220-48LP

I don't recognize any of these words. Does this mean that support for the 8P is likely or are you guys just fiddling for fun?

Very keen to understand the process; I already had root on mine in NAND but if we can flash modified images to boot1 then we're a step closer to building for this device.

I was under the impression that the 48 port was different yet again, but your dump suggests it's also board name "elemental" which is what the 8 port uses.

Not sure if the exact same firmware can be used, but the hardware is a very close match so if we can build for one device, the other will fall in line.

OpenWRT doesn't support MIPS as a target (anymore) so it will take a lot of work to build, but it's in the early stages of getting the ability to modify the platform.

I'm quite distracted trying to also crack the MX64 Security router for my own selfish needs. I managed to obtain a small 10 port PoE+ gigabit switch so the urgency for the MS220-8P isn't there, but also frees up the device to hack on.

I assume you mean it doesn't support this particular MIPS variant any more, since it most definitely still supports other MIPS targets such as ath79?

I dumped the NOR flash by connecting to J4 using a raspberry pi with flashrom. Using this same process, I rewrote the linux initramfs to gain root access to the first stage boot loader. From there, using nanddump, I was able to copy the running linux firmware.

I haven't really done anything after gaining root access and enabling the built-in web interface externally.

If anyone is interested, I've written up what I've found on my personal wiki at https://leo.leung.xyz/wiki/Meraki_MS220-8P and https://leo.leung.xyz/wiki/Rooting_the_Meraki_MS220-8P. Keep in mind that the information might be incomplete or incorrect.

I just wanted to connect with you on the MX64. I have on here and the method 'https://openwrt.org/inbox/meraki/meraki_mr32' allows for the broadcom recovery mode with it's own little busybox. From there I wonder what could be done to overwrite the whole thing. (s magic key bootloops it)

Just wondering if this has died in the water? Got one next to me that is useless and could really do with an open source firmware.
