Support Fritzbox 7490

Hi,

My 7490 is running 7.12 and gets boot loop. Do you know how to get the bootlog like the one shown in the page https://openwrt.org/toh/avm/fritzbox.7490? I tried the com port (TX, RX, GND , 115200 n81) with PUTTY but it displays garbage. Also if I connect the RX pin to my usb UART, it hangs with the power/dsl led flashing. Many thanks in advance.

Which avm lantiq development snapshot build (if any) can I try for 7490?
I am also happy to test work in progress images from developers.

I would also like to try, now I am using freetz but it is terrible.

Be aware that all telephony functionality (DECT in particular, but also the FXS ports) are never going to work.

@slh thanks: I do not need DECT and DSL. I switched from VDSL2 to Cable provider and was left with the 7490. In fact I now use 7490 as access point running Freetz-ng and would also use 7490 as access point running Openwrt .

The WiFi part is only supported if you install additional patches, packages and compile a separate OpenWrt build for the WiFi hardware that runs from RAM. The pieces are generally there for the 3390 and the 3490, but you need to port them yourself to the 7490 (at least as far as I know).

Basically, you will need:

The wasp_uploader needs to be included in the Lantiq target, the wasp_downloader needs to be included in the ath79 target. Then you need to pull ath_tgt_fw1.fw from an AVM firmware and place it into /opt/wasp along with the ath79 initramfs image. Then you can start the upload script with /opt/wasp/upload-wasp.sh. If everything goes well, you can trigger the script from /etc/rc.local.

Be aware that the scripts are all not adapted for the 7490, so you will need to patch a lot. Plus, the MDIO uploader has only been tested on my 3390 and 3490 devices.

From which Fritz OS version & language (german/belgium/other) did you flash to OpenWrt @LinuxInside and was is also possible to revert to stock Fritz OS firmware?

BUMP!

any news?

I have created an experimental build based on current trunk that incorporates all that andyboeh mentioned to do. It also adds a tool in the build tools section that downloads the avm firmware, extracts it and places the vdsl, usb firmware and the wasp stage 1 firmware into /lib/firmware. bspatch is required, since ADSL firmware is extracted, but I removed the copy to keep the images small.
wasp_uploader is the package that does it in the makefile. I automated it as best as I could, such that you follow the instructions from the README, there is nothing more to build or transfer.

What does not work:

  • USB3, although the renesas patch to load the firmware is applied and it initializes
  • LAN3 and LAN4 do not work, these are the AR 8035 based phy's. They work with a 4.x based kernel or using one of the images for 3490 or 7362sl.
  • I have not tried sysupgrade. So I don't know if the nand handling is correct and the sysupgrade process works.
  • If the lantiq image gets bigger than 11-13MB, eva bootloader is stuck in boot. I suspect, that its because the rootfs (initramfs) is part of the kernel. The AVM firmware appends the rootfs after the kernel.
    The modifications are here.

Happy testing. I had the box running with both images for a day and it worked. In the current configuration, I could use it either as DSL Router with Wifi or just connect it to a switch and use it just as a wifi hotspot (while I am not sure, why I got an ip address from the switch connected network and not from openwrt lantiq instance). Booting it up takes about 90-120s for the initramfs Lantiq and after that another 90-120s for the WASP to boot and make networking available. The SSIDs for wireless are OpenWrt and OpenWrt-5G and the key is extracted from urlader partition as printed on the sticker on the back of the device, similar to how the mac addresses are extracted.


For now I am running out of ideas for USB3 and the AR 8035 ethernet ports and cannot spend more time.

Added a patch to make LAN3 LAN4 ports working by reverting the config_init function of at803x.c back to how it worked on linux 4.19.
In the earlier post, I forgot to mention that of course DECT and ISDN/POTS is not working too.
When dawn is built into the WASP image (ath79), the WASP image does not boot, don't know if dawn itself or a dependency causes it, I currently have no serial console for the wifi SoC, so cannot see whats wrong.

The problem with dawn turned out to be a size problem with the WASP image for ath79 target. It helped changing the lzma parameters and it was possible to start an 11MB image. It should be possible now to boot bigger images to the WASP SoC.
The fixes are part of the latest commit to https://github.com/kestrel1974/openwrt/tree/fritzbox7490.
The size problem with the lantiq image not booting seems to be caused if the vmlinux-imageramfs file in the build_dir exceeds 16MB. I have not found a solution to that other than booting a small working initramfs, then transfering a larger sysupgrade image to that and run sysupgrade from there.

It would be a good idea to post some benchmark result. E.g., is the hardware fast enough for SQM on 80 Mbps down / 25 Mbps up?

It's just a bog standard lantiq VRX268 SOC (just with a weird way to attach the wireless), so absolutely not. It will just barely achieve 85 MBit/s without SQM - and just over 110 MBit/s with software flow-offloading enabled (both figures assuming that SMP is enabled, otherwise you'd drop to 55-60 MBit/s).

There are two patches (or actually a reimplementation of the xrx200 legacy driver) out there: How to make the lantiq xrx200 faster, which I have also tested but not benchmarked. Apart from that, I have only done one performance test and that was to check, if the box running two OpenWrt instances would for wifi clients be fast enough to fully use my 80MBit VDSL and it did. I have not checked the switch performance on the Lantiq SoC in any way.

OK, so performance-wise, this has no advantages over a BT HomeHub 5A. Thanks for the info!

@slh I thought the fritzbox 7490 has a VRX288, but that probably does not make a difference?

In terms of performance, vrx268 and vrx288 are identical - and yes, performance should be roughly on par with the bthub5 (the wireless offloading might help a little, but only minimally).

@slh And the patches mentioned here: How can we make the lantiq xrx200 devices faster
Fixing dma and smp, is there any improvement to expect compared to openwrt trunk?

Yes, but don't expect a world of a difference it's more a matter of little by little.

Probably true in router mode, I had an BT HH5A running under OpenWrt, but essentially as bridged modem, and I could saturate my 100/32 link bidirectionally, but all the HH55 did was handling the dsl modem and the ethernet bridge, no NAT, no PPPoE no firewalling and no WiFi...
(that was with 19.07.4, IIRC, switched modes since then, but since my link got more stable due to wiring changes in my apartment, I am tempted to try the HH5A again).
