Zyxel GS1900-48

Just ordered the GS1900-48 to use with OpenWRT. Noticed some installation issues including bootloops and some confusion around the correct install process (Zyxel GS1900-48 flashing from OEM)

  • Who is using this device - how has it been?
  • What is the recommended version (22.03.5 or snapshot?)
  • What is the recommended installation method from OEM firmware

OpenWRT is now installed (flashed initramfs from WebUI, flashed sysupgrade from OpenWRT CLI)

However I am only seeing 960K of overlay space?

root@OpenWrt:~# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                 2.5M      2.5M         0 100% /rom

/dev/mtdblock8          960.0K    892.0K     68.0K  93% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay      960.0K    892.0K     68.0K  93% /

How do I fix this?

Guess this is due to the 2x MTD firmware partitions. Could we do a re-partition to get 8MB for packages and enable Luci? I was thinking of experimenting with a luci app for LLDP that i saw.

Compiled a custom firmware and was able to include basic luci-ssl by removing odhcpd6 and adding lldpd, 6.8MB.
