Support for Mikrotik RB3011UiAS-RM?


#1

hi all,

I am curious if anyone has considered to port Lede onto the rack-mount RB3011 from Mikrotik (list price $179, e-shop price around 120 EUR (without VAT) at this moment.

It is a IPQ8064 device with 1GB or RAM, 128MB of NAND flash and 10 GigE ports (I suppose 2 switches with 5 ports each), external RJ45 serial console port. This has no WiFi. The main downside of this device (besides the RouterOS) is the fact that it uses an external power supply rather than built-in power supply and standard IEC socket, which in a rack is a bit of a bummer.

I am after something which is rack mounted, not too expensive ($200-ish), has at least 8 GigE ports and has a decent CPU (I am doing some forward error correction calculations which use a lot of CPU, so a decent CPU is a must). This is for video distribution (steady streams ~30 Mbit each, not too bad).

At this moment, I am using the UBNT ER (8 port non-SFP version) and the smaller ERLite as a desktop 3-port variant, but the IPQ8064 should give far more CPU power...

I know there are Lede supported devices based on the same IPQ8064, but I know other Mikrotik devices use proprietary bootloaders and other stuff making Lede / OpenWRT ports difficult.

Any ideas or suggestions for alternatives or anyone willing to join forces for supporting the RB3011?


Is RB960PGS (Hex PoE/Routerbox Pro) supported?

Just search RB3011UiAS-2HnD-IN - it's planned for production. Also, see https://asp24.ru/obzory/obzor-marshrutizatora-mikrotik-rb3011uias-rm/ it contains image ( https://asp24.ru/images/companies/1/rb3011uias/rb3011_w_wifi.jpg ) with connected PCI-E WiFi board.

This is main problem. Also, who knows - bootloader is locked with qualcomm trustzone or not?

I can't see how integrate dtb blob into elf image format which loads bootloader.

Wow! Useful... Thanks.


#5

First step would be to get all info possible from bootloader.
RB3011 has serial port enabled so you can access bootloader and get a lot of info there,also get the boot log.
Then there is a lot of info in GPL sources as it is only ipq806x device Mikrotik has.
It looks like LEDE would also need to control voltage regulator

#7

Awesome,is your source tree on github?


#8

Nope. It's not ready for anything. SFP not working, bootloader need shrinking to fit in boot partition.
USB working, LEDs - working.


#9

I am asking just to see the code.
I am really interested in that


#10

Has there been any progress?


#11

@LynxChaus Any progress?
I am really interested in your source, should have one extra RB3011 that will be moved out of production so I can work on it.


#12

Definitely interested, if you don't mind releasing what you've done so far.


#13

Three years ago I wrote a program named kernel2minor.
This is an OpenWRT kernel packer to format that understandable to the RouterBOOT. And now, when you build a image of the OpenWRT for the Mikrotik(NOR or NAND flash), the OpenWRT uses this packer. I think, that in a new RB3011 you can also use the same packer! The RouterBOOT is still waiting for yaffs as a fs for kernel partition.

P.S:
Yes, and I, too, am going to take an rb3011 closer in 2-3 weeks. Now I’ll just bring to mind the firmware for a RB2011UiAS-RM.


#14

I just recently started a SFP on RB2011UiAS-RM. The trick is that one of the LED outputs of the AR8327 switch chip actually controls the transistor which turns on the power to the SFP PHY !!!

Accordingly, to turn on the power to the PHY, you need to do something like this(value is 0x0230c300 instead of 0x0030c300):

static struct ar8327_led_cfg rb2011_ar8327_led_cfg = {
	.led_ctrl0 = 0xc731c731,
	.led_ctrl1 = 0x00000000,
	.led_ctrl2 = 0x00000000,
	.led_ctrl3 = 0x0230c300,
	.open_drain = false,
};

For the rest, the process of SFP(SGMII) initiating is the same as for RB2011, so see mach-rb2011.c for details.

And in the RB2011UiAS-RM. an I2C is connected to the SFP and through it you can read / write the EEPROM and get the DDM data:

insmod i2c-gpio-custom bus0=0,11,21
i2cdetect 0
i2cdump 0 0x50

#15

Yes, I know - mikrotik's HW eng use atheros LED output as additional GPO lines. Stuppid idea but save $0.02 on additional GPIO extender IC.


#17

Now I plan to create a miniature elf boot loader(like lzma-loader on QCA platform) that will be launched by a RouterBOOT and prepare and launch a OpenWRT kernel.

@adron Awesome job.
I got my hands on RB450Gx4 which is IPQ4019 based RB, it has 2MB fo SPI-NOR for the bootloader and 512MB Toshiba RAW NAND.
So, I am facing same issues how to get images loaded and this one is especially tricky as GPL code has basic drivers but device specific stuff is located in "BIOS" according to Mikrotik so I pretty much gotta gues which pins are used for NAND.
So, gotta take a full dump of the SPI NOR first.

How did you get you U-boot loaded and do you maybe have sources for WIP publicly available?

Hello. For RB-3011 I use this U-Boot: Gl-Inet U-Boot. It is made for ipq-4xxx and requires aditional developerment for a ipq-806x CPUs. If anyone is interested, I can share my changes.
In a week I will also have a RB450Gx4, so my little bootloader will do both for RB-3011 and for RB450Gx4 too. And of course its source will be open.

Thats my version of U-Boot for RB-3011: uboot-ipq806x
