[Banana Pi BPI-R64] Mainline OpenWRT image

Thanks to @dangowrt R64 is now fully supported, so my r64-emmc branch will no longer be updated.

However for those who want, I created a branch which uses swconfig instead of DSA, since DSA does not utilize the 2 CPU ports on this device.

You can check it here: https://github.com/graphine27/openwrt/tree/r64-swconfig


Source will be great :slight_smile:

As soon as I will have the build system generate correct image, right now it’s stitched together manually.

How do I do it? I can compile it here, but I don’t know how to set it up. Can you give me some advice?

I have checked commit compare, i found new commit have some binary file, can you show us these binary how to make it. Execute me, i think are you employee of Banana Pi ?

Not an employee.

I got most of the files from: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R64-openwrt/tree/master/staging_dir/target-aarch64_cortex-a53_musl/image

The partition table inside GPT_EMMC in my repo is modified.

Some more binary files can be found here: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R64-BSP/tree/master/mt-pack/mtk/bpi-r64/bin

Hello. I tried to build an image from your branch. As a result, I got a file with the extension * .bin. copied this image to micro SD with Ubuntu system and ran this command

dd of = / dev / mmcblk0 bs = 512 seek = 0 if = openwrt-mediatek-mt7622-bpi_bananapi-r64-rootdisk-ext4-fullimage-emmc.bin.

After rebooting the R64, enabling the choice 0 will boot from emmc and the first time the boot was successful. But the next times the system is rebooting all the time.

Maybe I did something wrong.

Here is the log:

There is a bug,where rebooting to emmc is not working.

Yes, that’s right. I didn’t think about config filesystem. I will try to build and write about the result

no errors, the same log that I wrote in the post above

If r64 is booted to emmc and a software-reboot is done,r64 will try booting to sdcard not emmc.

I found the problem. The reboot of the device turned out to be due to a 4g modem or any other pci device.

The built image works thanks

Can you share image witch you build?

Thank you…

Hi guys I am compile images with transmission and samba, here they are:

Hello. I have a problem. After a while, the memory on / dev / root ends where it flows, I can’t find it. After the memory has faded. dev / root becomes read only read only filesystem
