Can you add some details about what this version can do and what does it support? Also, how can I build the files on openwrt.org? Thank you


(Maciek Szelągowski) #3

sorry, I did not compile this version. It’s just compiled by OpenWRT team.

I only found this information on some website …

Official from openwrt-team but not bananapi/sinovoip so you should look/ask in openwrt-documentation

It looks indeed like a official build from the OpenWRT team. It’s nice to see that OpenWRT is going to support the R2. This might be a future for stable kernels?


(Frank W.) #6

Imho openwrt only supports thing from mainline (soc-support and basic board-support).other things like wifi-driver second gmac or others are possibly not supported. There are patches for it,but these have to manually applied


(Maciek Szelągowski) #7

Anyone now how to put those .bin file to SD?


(Frank W.) #8

Have you tried simple

sudo dd if=7623n-bananapi-bpi-r2-initramfs-kernel.bin of=/dev/sdx

?


(Maciek Szelągowski) #9

sure, but doesn’t boot. Will try to attach log


#10

It doesn’t sound like it will be officially supported any time soon judging from this https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1135


(Maciek Szelągowski) #11

That’s true. Due to lack of support from Sinovoip I bet none of OpenWRT / Armbian will ever be supported. I have banana pi pro (Leemaker) and it’s fully supported. What a pity …
