Sept. Da bei mir noch eine Easybox rumfliegt und ich diese gerne als Access Point Einen Reset der Easybox durchführen, dazu auf der Rückseite mit einem spitzen die erste brauchbare und wirklich gute Anleitung!. The Vodafone Easybox A has nice router hardware. I found one on the trash recently and decided to put OpenWRT on it. Here’s how.

Currently December there is no factory image, which can be flashed from the webinterface of the original firmware. Establish a serial connection. Make a full backup see Backup of the flash storage first. Instructions are at the bottom.
You might need the configuration or your wifi will be unusable for all times. I didn’t uploaded any configuration after flashing, my wifi just worked.
But no guarantees that it will be same on yours. Better safe than sorry, make a backup! Using a functional serial communication program like minicom anpeitung running OpenWrt easier and more understandable. You just need a running U-Boot and can do everything from there.

First, let’s have a look about the available flash memory. This is from my device after flashing U-Boot permanently:. That’s fine, we won’t touch that. Unreliable serial connections can and will make your upload garbage. Let’s check the CRC32 sum. U-Boot has a handy variable for the starting point of our upload:. Compare with the local copy, upload again if needed.
Now we erase the blocks beginning from the first block after U-Boot up to the size of the uploaded image:. In this paragraph you have to take action on bootloader [bl] cmd line and sometimes on u-boot [ub] cmd line and sometimes local [lo]. To do this take a copy of the original bootloader code first k of the backup firmware and attach the squash image to it:.
Then reset and write the just created flash. This takes some more time to transmit and then takes some time again to get written to the flash. The openwrt image is on the flash but it doesn’t start automatically because u-boot isn’t on flash yet. Currently the failsafe mode on the router doesn’t work. Looking through the serial console one can see that it actually can boot into failsafe mode but it doesn’t bring up the network. The patch for this behavior if simple and can be found in https: For arvdpw22 this file is in.
However be careful, for whatever reason I am not sure that make detects changes to dts files so be sure that if you are recompiling make actually notices the change and does everything. Currently December uboot is brokensee: Please backup your original firmware! Not only that you might want to go back to the original state later, but your firmware may also contain data that is unique to your device like MAC addresses not sure about that but though.
Ro dump twice as recomended by the autor of brntool you have to plan 2 hours to backup your device.
Kill your serial terminal screen: Now you are able to dump the original firmware as shown below. As you see, the two files are the same. If you compare your own output with this example you probably note the md5sums differ, thats ok: For Wifi to work, you must preserve the original board config partition.
It consists of the last sector of your flash: If your wifi doesn’t work, you propably have accidently erased that data. Hopefully you created a backup of your original firmware.

That backup should be 8MB bytes long. The last 0x bytes are the ones we are needing here.
You can extract them using dd. Assuming you are on the machine where the original firmware backup is stored and it is named original. I don’t know if it actually helps overwriting it ever again, but it hopefully won’t hurt to protect that part of the flash:. For me at this point wifi still wouldn’t work after restarting the box. I tried that manually without success. I can now successfully scan for nearby wifi networks.
These links provide information for older versions of OpenWrt: As with most Lantiq devices there is a boot mode allowing you to recover via the serial port even if the bootloader is broken. One convenient approach might be to use flying wires from the ground and 3V3 pins of the serial port, and temporarily and carefully! If you expect to do this more than a few times, consider soldering wires going to header strips for jumpers or switches.
If you’re making the connections manually, you may carefully! With the connections removed, the device will remember this boot mode until power-cycled soft reset will remain in UART mode. Be ready to interrupt normal boot by pressing space to get a U-Boot prompt.
This only puts U-Boot in memory until power-off.
To make any permanent changes replacing brnboot with U-Boot, upgrading U-Boot, or replacing the stock image with OpenWrt you’ll need to flash something using instructions elsewhere on the page.
Be aware that U-Boot may be protecting some areas; if so you’ll need to unprotect them before you can write to them, anlwitung. Ok, prompt received Writing: Ok, prompt received File successfully written. You should run command ‘crc32 d4e4’ on the modem and the result must be 17ceed2d.
