Upgrading the firmware using US firmware to any version above, does not help, still failover-ing into version 1.0.1.188217.

I DO NOT know WTH you have but it just don't look right.
AFAIK there was NEVER a FW version that you have ---

You can try serial to see whats what but I would be more inclined to send it back to wherever you got it Rolling Eyes

Hi,

I bought E8500 on SG, with the following firmware version:

https://imgur.com/a/6B1xXZr (1.0.1.188217).

The firmware cannot be upgraded from FW_EA8500_1.1.3.166845_prod.img to FW_EA8500_1.1.9.x_prod.img, after updating it, it will failover to default version over and over again.

Means if I want to be upgraded to ddwrt, I have to use USB serial? I previously planned to upgrade using the E8500WW firmware.


Just guessing .... the EA8500 router you have is a made for North America (US) EA8500
That means you cannot go from a firmware that old to directly Linksys latest.
Look at 'For US' in this link ---> https://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=156300
AND
this is no place to ask about upgrading Linksys firware to another Linksys firmware.
You should call them or ask at https://www.linksys.com/us/support/


If you're looking to switch to DD-WRT, don't install the latest Linksys firmware. The last Linksys firware that will allow you to run dd-wrt without having to use a serial to USB "hack" is 1.1.4.169978.

Otherwise, MRJCD is right on...not a place to ask about linksys firmware...

You should run Kong's firmware if you're going to run DD-WRT on the EA8500.

To go from linksys to DD-WRT use this firmware first:
http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-IPQ806X/EA8500-factory-to-ddwrt.img

Then you can use BIN files for DD-WRT to DD-WRT updates:
http://www.desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-IPQ806X/

The test folder has the latest builds made by Kong, but beware they are running on the newer Linux K4.19 kernel which slows down the router on ISP connections over 75mbps.
If your connection is faster. stick to the build in the non test folder.


Can someone tell me why the newer Linux K4.19 test build has a major impact on routers with ISP connections over 75 mbps speeds? Just curious if there is a ticket open that I can look at exactly. Thanks.

Doesn't impact me much though since my ISP speed is 70 mbps haha.

The issue is with QOS. See the tickets in tatsuya46's signature.

The latest Kong build 39345M work OK on 100 Mbit/s

So I need some assistance.

After getting tired of wifi dropouts on the latest EA8500 Linksys firmware I thought I'd give dd-wrt a shot. Opened up the case to find no pins which was a bummer but was able to attach pins for the TTL leads. Then I followed the @mrjcd guide to the letter and everything seemed to be going well, got serial communication, uploaded the kong image to both partitions, reset and then...

Code:
Loading from nand0, offset 0x3780000
   Image Name:   Linux-3.18
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    2097023 Bytes = 2 MiB
   Load Address: 42208000
   Entry Point:  42208000
Automatic boot of image at addr 0x44000000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-3.18
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    2097023 Bytes = 2 MiB
   Load Address: 42208000
   Entry Point:  42208000
   Verifying Checksum ... Bad Data CRC
ERROR: can't get kernel image!


And then it just sits at the IPQ prompt. I've tried re-downloading the file and flashing again but to no avail. Tried flashing the latest kong factory file, but all the did was replace image name on boot from Linux-3.18 to DD-WRT V3.0 but still bad CRC check. Even tried old linksys firmware images but same issue. Tried the whole process over again on another computer but not difference.

I am really at a loss. Could serial pins not be attached right or damaged something when I put on the leads? Would really like to get this functioning again.

I attached the session log if that proves helpful.

balar55,
aside from you have uboot version 1.0.12 and mine are version 1.0.9
I'm not sure what you've gotton into.
What Linksys FW were you having trouble with? You say the latest...
... which their current latest is Ver. 1.1.9.192968 (03/20/2019)
I find it hard to believe it caused wifi dropouts under any type normal/decent conditions.
DID YOU RESET IT BEFORE TRYING TO GO TO DD-WRT ???
What other firmware have you tried to install?
How long have you had this router?
Where did you get it from?
sompin just don't really looky right...but who knows what's what and/or who may have done whatever

EDIT:
I dunno.... your log shows it was all transferred correct byte for byte but then he seems to erase from an ungodly address. I think something is screwed. If you try again just try to flash one time only and if completes and get you get (IPQ) # I would then type 'reset' which will reboot it...maybe it can find correct image ...I just dunno

Thank you for looking into this.
Wifi dropout might have been an incorrect phrase, devices would disconnect/reconnect in a loop until a restart. Have had the router for about three or four years new. Started with linksys 1.1.9.192968 firmware from a reset state.

First I used the factory image from the PuTTy-TFTP folder. Then I tried the EA8500-factory-to-ddwrt.img from http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-IPQ806X/
At that point I was curious so I tried linksys firmware 1.1.4.168206 and 1.1.4.169978.
Each time it acted like it was taking the firmware just fine as on restart the loading image name would change but then checksum fail. I still have serial access and can send commands. Looking around a bit it might be related to memory adresses/sizing issues. It's really weird...
