I think to unbricked using linux method much easy and no tffp servers problem.

Seeing how many people is not reading this forum, installing the latests snapshot and bricking their device, I have added a note to the issue in the readme, and pointed to the binary firmwares provided by @Zorro. Find the updated readme here: https://github.com/acecilia/OpenWRTInvasion

Thanks all :rocket:

Can you tell plz me which firmware you loaded? From the official openwrt snapshots ?

https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ramips/mt7621/openwrt-ramips-mt7621-xiaomi_mir3g-v2-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin --output firmware.bin ? Or something custom ?

What version is it?

I was having issues debricking with BOOTP-DHCP so moved to dhcpserver.de version, if you add the firmware to the wwwroot directory (named test.bin) and use the wiz to enable webserver and TFTP all worked perfectly for me, remember to wait for blue flashing light before rebooting. Also, don't use original openwrt image use the version from zorro or you will brick the device. I had to use wget (instead of curl) on the mediafire link, if you keep the --output firmware.bin all other commands work as before.
e.g wget http://download1863.mediafire.com/c9g50nkv0psg/0qetz7rm8n9hr04/openwrt-ramips-mt7621-xiaomi_mir3g-v2-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin --output firmware.bin

Hello everyone

Hope you all are safe in this craziness

right of the bat im letting you know Im an amateur in this area. so i wanted to buy the 4a gigabit version to and use openwrt(some one recomended it) to be able to use openvpn and wireguard on router. is it possible ? will you recommend it ? can i install it myself or i need extra hardware ? ive read that it may brick your router will it be ok later ?

Thanks Alot

Hi
it's not that straight forward

yes this is a router with good hardware and decent price that can do most of what you want with openwrt but at the moment there is a problem with the snapshot builds so you're going to have to use older builds that don't have openvpn built in and you won't be able to install it

as your second question it's not hard at all and you don't need to get into hardware but you do need some basic understanding of command lines and network setting

yes , you can install openwrt by using dear @acecilia method . thanks to him alot. you don't need any extra hardware.but latest openwrt snapshot will brick your router it is under development by openwrt team and has a new kernel.

Thanks alot. both of you for replying back.

Im assuming snap shot is the build you have to use on the routher right ?

So if the latest build brick the device , will it gonna be fixed anytime soon or its gonna stay the same ? how much often they update the build ? like every week ? month ?

and most important question does WireGuard and openvpn both works smoothly on it ?

between 4a and RB941-2nd-tc HAP Lite which one do you recommend ? my only need is sharing those 2 protocol vpn

DID somebody manage to install any VPN solution(in particular OpenVPN package) ? i get an error with cannot install due to wrong kernel version

See my answer here:

As this router has SNAPSHOT release only, you need to build a new image which contains your favourite packages.
You could also use the Image Builder, if you don't like building from source.
