Xiaomi AX3000T installation issues

Hy guys many thanks let me join to the board.
Hi just bought an xiaomi AX300T and follow your guide but i'm stopped on :Flash openwrt-mediatek-filogic-xiaomi_mi-router-ax3000t-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin.
After done this one i have issue to get next step (opkg update && opkg install kmod-mtd-rw) because i dont have any gateway in configuration . I try to add one in /etc/config/network or for dhcp but when router rebooted it dont keep any configuration previus saved (also for to apply root password , it not remaning)
How i can do ?

Many thanks, Sandro

Hi, it looks like you are stuck with the initramfs-factory image from step 1 of " Change to OpenWrt U-Boot" instruction.

If you don't really need to replace the bootloader (U-Boot), I would stick with the OEM one.

You just need to repeat the step 5 from the flashing instructions:

sysupgrade -n /tmp/openwrt-mediatek-filogic-xiaomi_mi-router-ax3000t-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

And after reboot you should have a working router.

Hi Dnd . yesterday i re-flashed "openwrt-mediatek-filogic-xiaomi_mi-router-ax3000t-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin" but i dont know well how to procede.
I have to complete step with "Change to OpenWrt U-Boot " ?

Many thanks , Sandro

neither do we, since you won't tell us the status of your device....


What was the result of flashing the sysupgrade image?
Can you now configure the router?
Does it keep the settings over reboots?

Like I mentioned before, the step with replacing the bootloader is optional.
This step is more dangerous, the risk of bricking the router is higher.

Which model of AX3000T you have? Currently international RD23 cannot be flashed AFAIK.

The device page doesn't mention different/unsupported versions of the device.

So some users are set up for a surprise.

Could this be connected as well?

Because this was found just a few days ago, so are you having RD23 model??

I bought a couple of AX3000T and to my surprise I received the RD23 version.
They have sw version 1.0.31 - and from what I could tell the exploit found on CN version 1.0.47 does not work.
Is there any alternative flashing method we can try?

As mentioned above, there is no known method can be used on the RD23 version.

Just like TP Link, I usually don't recommend them because of too many different hardware revisions for the same model.

i had the exact same issue as OP, i ran the following commands

ubiformat /dev/mtd8 -y -f /tmp/openwrt-mediatek-filogic-xiaomi_mi-router-ax3000t-ubootmod-initramfs-factory.ubi

But then got stuck on installing kmod due to no internet.

I followed your step to enter the sysupgrade command but i get:

upgrade: Device xiaomi,mi-router-ax3000t-ubootmod not supported by this image
upgrade: Supported devices: xiaomi,mi-router-ax3000t
invalid sysupgrade file
Image check failed...

I'm running snapshot mode with no ability to access webui. I have a rd03 device

You can use https://firmware-selector.openwrt.org/ to build a snapshot with packages preinstalled. You just need to click on customise, add the package and then click on request build. You can add luci, as well as the kmod package.
I do not have that device, so look carefull on the wiki instructions.

Hi thanks for your quick response! I've pressed request build as shown in the image, and then click download snapshot.

However, when i try to use the sysupgrade cmd with the new file i still get the invalid sysupgrade file error as previously mentioned

I see that you didn't add luci and your previously mentioned kmod package.
However xioami ax 3000t wiki you have 2 options. Flash xxx.sysupgrade.bin directly or change to Openwrt U-boot with xxx.ubootmod-initramfs-factory.ubi. Please note the differences.
Also under https://firmware-selector.openwrt.org/ you have 2 option with or without OpenWrt U-boot. I suppose yours is without.
When the build is ready download the files depending on what you want to do.. update to OpenWrt U-boot or install snapshot - you have several choices below.
Again warning- never touched this devices, so read wiki carfull and compare the naming conventions of the files you want to flash.
