Support MA5671A SFP GPON

@anon23891239
Thank you for your contribution.

@minhng99
Nice setup you have, more future proof. It's also good for taking measurements.

Welcome again. In this thread I found a lot of interesting information that I shared on the Russian forum. I also described how to unlock the bootloader in a more friendly way, step by step. I wanted to share my description with you.

Connect the USB adapter with SFP connector to the module. Start the TeraTerm program and set the serial port parameters: drivers, speed, COM port, (115200 8N1).

This is what a locked bootloader looks like.

Create a temporary connection between contacts 4 and 5 of the flash memory and switch the module back on.

Type 7 at the prompt and send 1224ABORT.bin file to the flash. (Modified file u-boot.bin is located a couple of posts above)
TeraTerm File->Transfer->XMODEM->Send 1224ABORT.bin

When the 1224BORT.BIN file transfer is complete, press Ctrl-C to get this prompt.

FALCON =>

Enter these variables to keep the bootloader unlocked permanently.

FALCON => setenv bootdelay 5
FALCON => setenv asc 0
FALCON => setenv preboot "gpio input 105;gpio input 106;gpio input 107;gpio input 108;gpio set 3;gpio set 109;gpio set 110;gpio clear 423;gpio clear 422;gpio clear 325;gpio clear 402;gpio clear 424"
FALCON => saveenv 

Restart the module.

File transfer will take about 25 minutes.

Last step. Move the file from memory to flash.

FALCON => sf probe 0
FALCON => sf erase C0000 740000
FALCON => sf write 80800000 C0000 740000

The module should have two images on the flash: active(0) at 0xC0000 and standby(1) at 0x800000
If standby is also present, image1_is_valid=1

FALCON => printenv image1_is_valid
image1_is_valid=1
FALCON => 

Make sure the active one is 0

FALCON => printenv committed_image
committed_image=0
FALCON => 

When finished, insert the module into the router and log in at 192.168.1.10

My Alcatel-Lucent SFP doesn't do GEM multicast forwarding :frowning: Couldn't use it because I need IPTV from my ISP which goes through GEM multicast

I think it have something to do with the file /etc/mibs/sfp_alu.ini because it looks like the file containing OMCI code

i try firmware MA5671Amod-mtd2.bin
root@SFP:~# onu gtcsng
errorcode=0 serial_number=HWTC12345678

but i dont know how to change SN.

ma5671a

ref:
Support for GPON SFP FGS202

Dear friends,
After surfing the Mikrotik forum I thought about trying the firmware from Chinese modules popular in Spain on the MA5671A insert. Speaking of CarlitoProxx(CPGOS03-0490) aka Hilnk(HL23446). The software is more open and has Luci web interface and many advantages compared to highly customized solutions from telecom vendors.
First of all, the optical calibration is preserved.
Furthermore, it is possible to change these OMCI parameters used during authentication with the OLT.

  • GPON SN, GPON password, Vendor id, ONT Version, ONT model, Equipment id, LOID, LOID password(checkcode), firmware version, MAC address

It is also possible to change the EEPROM parameters of the SFP module that are displayed on the router screen.

  • Vendor name, Part number, Part number revision, Serial number, Date

The entire procedure is covered here in considerable detail:
https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116364#p751330

PROCEDURE FOR UNLOCKED MA5671A MODULE with ROOT SHELL

For a module with shell access, uploading a new firmware will not take long. To do this, login as usual to the SFP module at 192.168.1.10. Then simply move the image files from your PC to the SFP module's /tmp folder using the scp protocol. After image transfer:

root@SFP:/# cd /tmp/
root@SFP:/# cat /proc/mtd

root@SFP:/tmp# mtd -e linux write mtd2.bin linux
Unlocking linux ...
Erasing linux ...
Writing from mtd2.bin to linux ...
root@SFP:/tmp#

root@SFP:/tmp# mtd -e image1 write mtd5.bin image1

The module with the CPGOS03-0490 HL23446 firmware needs two new variables to work properly
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv ont_serial HWTC11223344
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv target oem-generic

root@SFP:/# fw_setenv committed_image 0
Restart the module for the changes to take effect.

PROCEDURE FOR NEW MA5671A MODULE WITH UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER

In case of the factory module, it must first be unlocked using the procedures described above and a small amount of soldering. After unblocking the bootloader it is enough to upload image files using kermit protocol.

FALCON => loadb 0x80800000
Ready for binary (kermit) download to 0x80800000 at 115200 bps...

TeraTerm File->Transfer->Kermit->Send mtd2.bin
File transfer will take about 13-17 minutes.

FALCON => sf probe 0
FALCON => sf erase C0000 740000
FALCON => sf write 80800000 C0000 740000

A similar approach will apply to the image1
TeraTerm File->Transfer->Kermit->Send mtd5.bin
File transfer will take about 13-17 minutes

FALCON => sf probe 0
FALCON => sf erase 800000 800000
FALCON => sf write 80800000 800000 800000

The module with CPGOS03-0490 HL23446 firmware needs two new variables to work properly
FALCON => setenv ont_serial HWTC11223344
FALCON => setenv target oem-generic

FALCON => setenv committed_image 0
FALCON => saveenv

Disconnect, insert the module into the router and log into 192.168.1.10 to complete the customization.

EXAMPLE OF CONFIGURATION

Login to the SFP module with new firmware at 192.168.1.10. Apply the desirable GPON serial number and password.

root@SFP:/# fw_setenv ont_serial ELTX11223344
root@SFP:/# uci set gpon.ploam.nPassword="0xde 0xad 0x31 0x32 0x33 0x34 0x35 0x36 0xbe 0xef"
root@SFP:/# uci commit
root@SFP:/# reboot

A selection of optional parameters
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv image0_version 9.0.0
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv image1_version 9.0.0
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv omci_loid someLOIDnumber
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv omci_lpwd LOIDpassword

root@SFP:/# uci set network.lct.macaddr="ac:9a:96:de:be:ef"
root@SFP:/# uci set network.host.macaddr="ac:9a:96:de:be:ef"
root@SFP:/# uci commit

root@SFP:/# reboot

I decided that I should also test the eprom values. Everything works well. Values like these:Vendor Name(HUWAWEI), Vendor Part Number(MA5671A), Vendor Revision(0001),Vendor Serial(ELTX11223344), Manufacturing Date(191029),MAC OUI(AC9A96) are visible on the router

Reset all eprom values(optional)
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -d yes

root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 0 -s "HUWAWEI"
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 1 -s "MA5671A"
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 2 -s "0001"
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 3 -s "ELTX11223344"
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 4 -s "191029"
root@SFP:/# sfp_i2c -i 36 -w 0xac9a96 -4 -m 0x00FFFFFF

VERIFY GPON SN and GPON Password in real time

By using the onu command we are able to view in real time the Serial Number and Password that is sent to the OLT
onu gtcpg - onu gtc password get
onu gtcsng - onu gtc serial number get
For some reason the version of onu included in this firmware displays these values in decimal format. This is still good enough for verification.
ELTX 11223344 - 69 76 84 88 17 34 51 68
0xde 0xad 0x31 0x32 0x33 0x34 0x35 0x36 0xbe 0xef - "222 173 49 50 51 52 53 54 190 239"

root@SFP:/# onu gtcsng
errorcode=0 serial_number="69 76 84 88 17 34 51 68"
root@SFP:/# onu gtcpg
errorcode=0 password="222 173 49 50 51 52 53 54 190 239"

So to remind you that the ONU successfully connected should be in the state O5
root@SFP:/# onu ploamsg
errorcode=0 curr_state=5

Hello,

First of all, thank you all for the awesome work.

Trying to flash OpenWRT on MA5671A using the last images posted.

For me, the problem is that it seems in enters in a bootloop, after starting S60optic.sh (this is the last part logged before it reboots).

uboot printenv log:

https://pastebin.com/4JpGqhma

openwrt booting messages with debug=4:

https://pastebin.com/xiUMpShf

Any ideas?

Regards

If you are using a USB powered adapter, check your SFP module in the router. The power from the computer's USB port may not be sufficient when the optics are turned on.

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, I'm using a USB powered CP2102 adapter.

But I tried on the router too and I cannot reach 192.168.1.10.

Regards

Yes, It seems this was exactly the problem.

For some reason SFP adapter has ip 192.168.1.57.

Thank you very much :smiley:

Best Regards

Hello,

I changed S/N, MACs and eeprom i2c variables to suit original equipment.

For some reason PLOAM state is always 1. Exceptionally I see 2 here but it last one or two seconds.

Receive state machine status and Receive superframe state machine status are syncing, but nothing else.

I tried rebooting with the fiber cable inserted but it has the same behaviour.

Regards

Hello morishe

A few questions
Is the printenv output given above complete? If not, what values have been deleted? In this form it appears as if the boot environment is default or without optical calibration.

Have you confirmed that the ont_serial and password changes have been saved?
Do all the variables look good?
root@SFP:/# fw_printenv ont_serial
root@SFP:/# uci show gpon.ploam.nPassword

root@SFP:/# onu gtcsng
root@SFP:/# onu gtcpg

Yes, the printenv output in pastebin above is complete.

The commands ont_serial and gpon.ploam.nPassword looks good.

ONU commands are the same but in dec form.

My ISP only checks s/n. How should I indicate that the password is blank?

The optical calibration is something exclusive from every SFP unit or it could have default values?

Regards

I haven't analyzed the optical calibration closely because there is not much documentation available for this chip. Anyway, I noticed that due to the lack of variable goi_config or default values, the laser will not turn on. See if you can extract mtd1 partition from the full image(post number 7) or from github. Save your old mtd1(uboot_env) just in case.

https://forum.openwrt.org/t/support-ma5671a-sfp-gpon/48042/7
https://github.com/minhng99/alcatel_lucent-lantiq_falcon/blob/master/mtd/mtd1

Then move the mtd1 image file from your PC to the SFP module's /tmp folder using the scp protocol. After image transfer:

root@SFP:/# cd /tmp/
root@SFP:/# cat /proc/mtd
root@SFP:/tmp# mtd -e uboot_env write mtd1 uboot_env

After restarting, verify that fw_printenv has changed and rewrite target, password, SN values again

root@SFP:/# fw_setenv target oem-generic
root@SFP:/# fw_setenv ont_serial ELTX11223344
root@SFP:/# uci set gpon.ploam.nPassword="0xde 0xad 0x31 0x32 0x33 0x34 0x35 0x36 0xbe 0xef"
root@SFP:/# uci commit
root@SFP:/# reboot

Thank you very much for the detailed instructions. I will try them now.

Keep you informed

@anon23891239

I tried with bmx29 and minhng99 mtd1's but It doesn't solve the problem :frowning:

In gtop I see PLOAM state = 1.

One thing that surprises me: If I connect the fiber cable with the module started it doesn't change anything (same values gtop with cable disconnected). If I restart the module with the cable inserted I see sync in Receive state machine status and Receive superframe state machine status and Downstream FEC= YES. In both cases same Ploam state.

Any other ideas?

i have same problem firmware HL23446 is not work
change to other firmware now working

Hi,

I think I wrote you on Mikrotik´s thread. I read you had the same problem.

I will try modified mtd2 image from @bmx29

Which firmware do you use?

Update: Indeed this was the problem. I used modded @bmx29 mtd2 and it detects light immediately. I didn't finish the config yet but it goes to Ploam State 3. Thank you @kapook007.

I will try to compare both images to shed some light.

Regards

I wonder if this problem is related to saved parameters from previous firmware.
Maybe this command will help clear the old data?
root@SFP:/# firstboot

To clarify me: Do you propose reflash with HL23446 mtd2 and execute this command?

Regards
