This is currently in the OpenWRT trunk, and while not an official marked release, if it builds, it usually builds something stable. :) If you'd like to discuss this, I created a mailing list so information isn't scattered around various forums and my own personal email. Let's get a little community going where everyone can benefit!



When preinit starts, SES light turns green. If you are holding the SES button, or at least press it quickly as soon as light turns green, then failsafe should start. Failsafe is indicated by orange light. Then you may telnet to with a PC connected to a LAN port.

From official firmware

You should be able to simply install this from the Update Firmware page in the Web interface! :)


started a package repo of our own. we need _at least_ our own kernel modules right? try this in /etc/opkg.conf:

src/gz adm8668
src/gz snapshots
dest root /
dest ram /tmp
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists
option overlay_root /overlay
arch all 5
arch brcm47xx 10
arch adm8668 20

upgrade from backfire

This should work given the feedback from Victor:

root@OpenWrt:~# source /lib/upgrade/ && run_ramfs
mount: mounting mini_fo:/overlay on /mnt failed: Function not implemented
