Topic: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

I've noticed on a few Russian and Chinese sites (e.g. here: http://mysku.ru/blog/aliexpress/29103.html) that there appears to be a U-boot mod for the WT3020 that adds web flashing support.

I have a WT3020 with OpenWrt on it, but I'd like to upgrade the stock U-boot. Can someone provide a guide in English?

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

You can't write to the U-Boot partition from a standard OpenWrt build, it has safeguards in place specifically to prevent U-Boot from being overwritten. You'd need to either build a custom OpenWrt with that safeguard disabled, flash it, and then flash U-Boot from there, or directly go through the bootloader with a serial console connected.

Thanks, think I had heard that before.

I was looking for a guide specific to the WT3020 though, and I haven't been able to find proper download of the latest U-boot.

DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK

I just completely brick my WT3020 and have to reprogram it with program tools.

Damn! Where'd you go wrong? Did you flash from the stock firmware?

Damn! Where'd you go wrong?

It just stop at "Starting kernel..." after flashing another firmware.


Did you flash from the stock firmware?

No, my router already upgraded to 16MB but I'll roll back to original state for the next test, since my flash ic is not permanently soldered.


There is another MT7620 uboot mod with web fail safe that I've manage to mod it for WT3020 but still at testing stage if you interested.

Nope, it's not only UI design. He took my sources and my work. Almost all output from serial console during web upgrade came from my project.

So he stole my work... did he wrote U-Boot from scratch or stole it too? smile Your question is almost year old...

OK, I will politely ask him for sources last time and then I will contact directly with authors of software which licenses he is violating.

That guy simply doesn't understand and violating GPL license terms. He can't publicly provide binaries WITHOUT source codes! If he want to make modification and use them privately... no problem.

I hate that kind of stupid people.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

The following worked just without any problem on my wt3020f (8mb).
Download the following archive:
https://mega.co.nz/#!jdRECSxA!tq4kk0zHI … svxoP9gYe4
unzip it and check it:
$ md5sum u-boot-nexx-3020-7620.bin
9002d70c8af2ca878df956934b122a39  u-boot-nexx-3020-7620.bin
offer it via http, so it can be downloaded from the router
$ python -m SimpleHTTPServer

directly connect the router via the lan port to your computer.
$ sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.8.5
$ telnet 192.168.8.1 (login: nexxadmin pass: y1n2inc.com0755 )
# cd /tmp/
# wget http://192.168.8.5:8000/u-boot-nexx-3020-7620.bin
// proceed only, if you successfully downloaded the new uboot file
# mtd_write unlock mtd0
GetFileSize: No such file or directory
Unlocking mtd0 ...
# mtd_write erase mtd0
GetFileSize: No such file or directory
Unlocking mtd0 ...

# mtd_write -r write u-boot-nexx-3020-7620.bin mtd0
Unlocking mtd0 ...
Writing from u-boot-nexx-3020-7620.bin to mtd0 ... [w]

it hangs now, just wait another minute and then power it down and start it up again
To check if the new uboot works, press and hold reset-button, then connect power.
Once the led flashes several times, you can release the reset button.

$ sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.5

On http://192.168.1.1 is the uboot-webinterface
download https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots … pgrade.bin
and upgrade it directly from uboot. (Firmware Upgrade -> generic firmware -> firmware)

after a reboot:

$ telnet 192.168.1.1
Trying 192.168.1.1...
Connected to 192.168.1.1.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

Does anyone have a link to the stock firmware for the WT3020?

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

Attention, failsafe is broken in WT3020 - https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/18768

Maybe someone in this thread has the knowledge to fix it? I suspect that TCP connections are not working when VLAN is disabled just like on other MediaTek/Ralink chipsets.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

not exactly, just take a look at 07_set_preinit_iface_ramips file in /lib/preinit/.
i think you will notice what's wrong here.

hint, two possible solutions(don't remember which is okay):
1)
swconfig dev mt7620 set enable_vlan 1
swconfig dev mt7620 vlan 1 set ports "0 6"
swconfig dev mt7620 port 6 set untag 0
swconfig dev mt7620 set apply 1
vconfig add eth0 1
ifconfig eth0 up

2)
swconfig dev mt7620 set enable_vlan 2
swconfig dev mt7620 vlan 2 set ports "1 2 3 4 5 6"
swconfig dev mt7620 port 6 set untag 0
swconfig dev mt7620 set apply 1
vconfig add eth0 2
ifconfig eth0 up

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

I've noticed that there's a new u-boot called "Breed" by this Chinese guy -- anyone try it?

yes, i tested it, obviously wink
works perfectly, but without english language in web-interface. google chrome's internal translator works well.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

Ah, cool I didn't even realize whose site it was haha.

I just found what I think might be an English version for the WT3020, can you confirm anything (my Russian is bad tongue): http://mysku.ru/blog/china-stores/31557 … ment912788

Also any idea why the file size is 128KB, compared to official version (which is 77KB)?

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

it's my article and my comment smile i padded file with 0xFF(as i explained in my blog - http://blog.hackru.ru/2015/04/pad-file- … xff.html), because previous uboot was complaining about loader size, expecting 128kb file.
about english version - nope, it's just screenshot from my screen, translated with google chrome from chinese.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

Thanks hackru, makes sense!

BTW I finally got around to upgrading the U-Boot on a factory WT3020 based on malfi's instructions above (also on the wiki) and had some issues. The actual U-Boot installation went fine, but I couldn't get OpenWrt to boot after flashing it from the U-Boot recovery console webpage (note that you have to use the sysupgrade firmware, not the factory one).

I fixed it by upgrading to the Breed bootloader (again, from the recovery console). I used breed-mt7620-reset1_128k.bin from 2015/4, which was pre-padded. After the upgrade the router booted straight into the OpenWrt installation that wouldn't boot before!

I then upgraded to the latest Breed (breed-mt7620-reset1.bin, build r623, non-padded) from http://breed.hackpascal.net and all seems fine still. Turns out that upgrading to this one directly (skipping breed-mt7620-reset1_128k.bin) also works.

Re: Nexx WT3020 U-boot mod?

Can someone point me to the stock firmware for the WT3020F (8M)? Their website (http://www.nexx.com.cn/index.php/home/page?p=222) only has the WT3020A (4M).

I did track down this: http://www.nexx.com.cn/download/NEXX_30 … pgrade.bin

But I may be flashing it wrong (from LuCI) because it says wrong format.
