Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

Simply superb. Thanks so much. Is there any way to make Barrier Breaker 14.07 running on this version?

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the support to this model. I bought the same router few days back to check openwrt. Am very new to the openwrt coming from Windows experience. Could you please help to apply the above mentioned patch or either to edit the image header. Also refer me some easy docs to understand the whole build process & environment of openwrt.

Thanks a ton.

Okay I got it working !!

Here is what I did to make it work.

Take the TL-WR841N Version 10 Openwrt factory image. Edit the header to reflect 740N V6 and change the checksum to the new value. Then flash through TFTP. The 740N V6 router downlaods the image, reboots and works perfectly. I can access Luci. Wifi is working so are the LED's and the LAN ports.

This hopefully confirms that the TL-WR740N V6 has the same hardware as the 841N V10. I will request the Dev team to please add support for the TL-WR740N V6 in the proper fashion since it already is present in the 841N V10 tree.

Hi,

I followed the steps mentioned here https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php … 67#p206667, edited the header and checksum value. But still getting error message (code: 18005) when uploading the edited .bin using tp-link's web portal. Any help to proceed further is much appreciated

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

Is there a chance of getting a .bin for the v6?

You can change header with this tool: TP路由固件头修改工具.exe

08410010 and 00000001 to
07400006 and 00000001

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

Hi Guys, I finished setting up openwrt using tftp method with the help of http://bkil.blogspot.in/2014/12/tftp-se … vered.html. Can anyone lead me to find correct or working material for setting up coovachilli with radiusdesk for social login, I already implemented radiusdesk at cloud with ubuntu. Dont know which material to follow for coovachilli & lot of them are confusing.

It's tested right? It won't brick it or anything?
Also, can I update through the standart firmware updater or do I need to follow that tutorial?

EDIT: Tested it. Worked. Thanks!

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

I'm not good at posting ticket to developpers, but looks like reset button is not properly configured and cannot be used to enter failsafe mode. Please someone confirm that and post ticked to developers.

740 OFF
nothing connected to 740 (lan & Wan ports)
now press reset button and keep holding it pressed
turn on 740
after 10 or 15 seconds, has to go into Failsafe
try more than once

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

I've got really bad news regarding the new TP Link firmware version TL-WR740N(EU)_V6_160325.

According to documentation, once this one is flashed, the router could not be downgraded any more.

The EU firmware was specialized for CE certificating and can’t be downgraded to other version, please click here for choosing your region and selecting the most suitable firmware version to upgrade.

Unfortunately I already had bricked it, and in the rush, flashed this particular version. Now I am not able to flash anything else, neither by tftp or http method.

I guess that the algorithm by which u-Boot and httpd checks the CRC is changed.

Any advice or solution?

Re: TP-Link WR740N Version 6

Bricked or flashed Trunk
For bricked read post #43
If flashed a Trunk version those don't have gui
Connect via Putty/SSH to 192.168.1.1 and write passwd and write admin hit enter again admin hit enter again, you had set password its admin, if you succeed it's not bricked, has a Trunk (snapshots) version
