OpenWRT 18.01 with HW_NAT & HW_FLOAT


#1

As part of the official support of the board, do you planned release the firmware openwrt 18.06 for BPI-R2? if the answer is yes, how long does it take?

There’s a discussion going on here - http://forum.banana-pi.org/t/banana-pi-bpi-r2-new-image-official-openwrt-18-06-0/

Sinovoip don’t seem interested in maintaining their own builds, the current one is ancient. The answer from OpenWrt dev/s is basically no or not any time soon. There is only basic board support in OpenWrt. Read what John Crispin said in this PR - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1135

I’ve certainly learned my lesson about BPI products. Probably best to move on and buy something that’s already supported. I got a pcengines apu but there’s other good stuff like ipq****/mvebu/layerscape.
