Support for Xiaomi Mi Wifi 4


#1

Hi All,

Just acquired this new Xiaomi router and would like to install openwrt/Lede on it.

Do you know if any possibility exists to setup this model as openwrt/Lede box ?

Thank you


#2

At the moment, no.

However the device appears to be very similar to its predecessor (the Xiaomi mi wifi router 3g, which appears to be the better choice from a hardware point of view), so it's likely not too difficult to add support for yours as well.


#3

One difficulty is how to install openwrt on this equipment as there is no USB port ?


#4

Well,simply copy the file using SCP or wget


#5

Oh, didn't know that ssh access was available.
Thanks


#6

By default it isnt,but I am sure that you can use the same trick as for R3G and R3


#7

And may I use the same firmware than the R3G ?


#8

No,off course not


#9

Okay, so looking forward to downloading correct firmware


#10

Until a developer gets their hands on it nothing will happen.


#11

Hope that will happen soon :wink:


#12

What's news about? Maybe I can some help for testing or do other monkey work?


#13

oh my this is good ill follo this


#14

Hey guys! Up topic!
Is there any news?


#15

is there already a firmware on this


#16

as I understand it-the router does not interest anyone?


#17

Yes, There are people, but still no developer. So my device is sitting around useless. I need to disable NAT which is not possible with the original Chinese firmware.


#18

Same for me.
Box is useless as well and waiting for new firmware.


#19

Need send some money to some developer, and process will much quicker (i cant make this task)


#20

Okay. How much and send to who ?
