I confirm that my another xiami 3g works with spi 16mb with your method
short j10 and j11
-remove nand flash and use spi flash 25q128
But your firmware very strange now:
-with having internet network wan port , Lan port does not received ip from router. It receives ip from upper router
with no cable in wan port, lan port can receive from router.
It means I can not install package for this router from internet.
Thank you for your help.
I have another question?
In your firmware I can not go to breed boot( press reset button and plug power in), network can not have ip. I set static ip is 192.168.1.1
when router booted. I go to router by ssh and put firmware(padavan or openwrt) by command: Mtd -r write /tmp/firmwre_file firmware. Or i put bootloader to tmp
All command was lock, can not flash firmware or bootloader.
And another question is I use 25q256 with 16pin does it work?
Sorry my English because I am vietnamese.
With PandoraBox firmware i have tested just at this time with serial console ( ComX 115200):
1 -reset default -> firstboot yes -> reboot -f
2 - login root password admin
3 - ifconfig br-lan 192.168.1.5 ( my computer is 192.168.1.10) )
4 - i connect network cable ( the 2 * LAN or WAN port )
5 - i can ping my computer 192.168.1.10
After i configure without problem with the web page 192.168.1.5 root admin
WIth reset button ( 10 seconds )
I can connect webpage 192.168.1.1
For the 25Q256 i have not tested but sure with 8 pins not 16
I try to usb 16pins to 8pins spi then it was death.
I presss reset button and plug power but can not into breedboot and only red led light. I think maybe uboot fail.
I go to firmware page but it has 22mb and my bios only 16mb.
Please tell me how to flash openwrt or padavan for my router
I fell the bios is lock to flash now.
I try SPI 16pin 25q256 by connect 8 cords to mainboard. It was too hot and dead.
I try flash by command with ssh file but firmware lock
At least I updated from your firmware to padavan now over web. At this time it is padavan.
I have usb serial. Please tell me to change firmware
Have you got a firmware with breedboot then I can write to spi 25q128?
What is different between firmware for nand and spi flash?
I creat firmware file with uboot_config_factory.bin and firmware from 50000hex. I can run this firmware but can update firmware from breedboot but it not work.
Your command is install mtd package and unlock uboot to replace uboot. After that did you update firmware to openwrt from breedboot.
Some firmwares are design for nand flash not for spi flash?
