Building OpenWRT from scratch for VoCore2

Sat Nov 26, 2022 4:41 am

Hello,

I want to build OpenWRT for VoCore2 from scratch on Ubuntu.

Is there steps i can follow somewhere to do that?

I tried following the steps from https://github.com/Vonger/vocore2

But it didnt work for me, I got different errors depending on which set of steps I followed. One of the errors was that mt6828.ko was not found, something like that,

Can anyone help? Is there an official list of steps I can follow, I been trying to get it built for a week now and have failed.

Thanks

LuHui

Hello,

I found the mt6828.ko driver and it builds without error now.

But when i load the build to the board it doesnt boot up anymore, the red light comes on but no SSID is broadcast, so i cant do anything anymore i cant connect to it to flash the factory firmware, so its bricked!

Anybody can help?

Thanks

mt7628.ko driver can not work with default openwrt, it will need the mediatek modified openwrt to support it.
to unbrick a vocore is not hard, check vocore.io/v2.html, you will need some cable. If you are using VoCore2 Ultimate, one usb cable is ok to recover from uboot by kermit.

Return to VoCore2/Lite/Ultimate
