On Xiaomi MI3 I was trying to install openWRT first time by replacing Chinese firmware.
I followed the method mentioned in the below url.
However, till last, it went fine, once I hit reboot my router is going into orange color nothing is happening. I am not able to access the router anymore. Pls help. I really like MI3 and want to functional again.
Your urgent help/ expert advise to recover my router.
Pls note am not much linux expert but able to handle some stuff.
Which step in the description did you complete last ? Are you currently at 4.6 ?
4.6. Power off the router (disconnect the power cable) and then hold the reset button then power up the router, release the reset button after 2/3 seconds after powering up. You will see breath style yellow led will glow
Have you used a lan cable to connect to a lan port ? What happens ? Maybe you have to give the computer a fixed ip address 192.168.1.2.
Can you ping 192.168.1.1 ?
You are quite short with information. Does not work is not much. What did you try ?
yes, I tried that process too. While installing OpenWRT I used lan cable everything went well till step 4.6. Once reboot router always glows yellow so tried hard reset multiple times. Over lan, updated laptop IP4 192.168.1.2 and tried to ping 192.168.1.1 nothing happened. Watched videos & read multiple blogs couldn't found the answer.
Actually, I skip the PandoraBox steps. Tried to install X-wrt & followed steps 4.12 thru 4.14.
Seems this went wrong, and the router not going into bootloader. With the yellow led light seems the router is not booting.
How do I recover now. By rolling back the original Xiaomi firmware and then install OpenWRT.
