Hi to all,
i'd like to test on my old but always glorious, WRT600N, the broadcom_K3X_mipsel32r1 release.

What is the correct flash order to flash this build?

currently i'm using this build :
https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2020/03-20-2020-r42747/broadcom/dd-wrt.v24_mega_special_wrt600n.bin

but i'm not be able to flash :

https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2020/03-20-2020-r42747/broadcom_K3X_mipsel32r1/dd-wrt.v24-42747_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-nv64k.bin

What's wrong?

It means your going to brick your router if you don't know what your doing. I would not recommend "testing" on a wrt600n as there is no jtag to bring it back.

BrainSlayer didn't really disseminate the actual procedure to flash that build AFAIK, just that he had tested it on this device. The only thing I can think of is TFTP flashing, but you do it at your own risk or bricking your router.

about all I know...
https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1180265#1180265

I am not sure I would want to brick the beauty, but it's been collecting dust for a long time over here...

I just remember how big of a PITA timing the TFTP client push would be on this router...but I was always able to recover it...

What's the advantage of this mipsel build vs the regular old bcm builds?

Newer patched kernel is probably the only "advantage". But if all you are using it for is as an AP, I don't see the need.

So I tried to load the mipselr1 firmware on the 600N and it resulted in a bootloop so I had to TFTP back to V2.4 42803. I have an email in to BS to ask how to "properly" load the mipselr1 version on the 600N.

Also, I thought this was a 300mbps MCS router...both radios seem to top out at 270....it's been so long....is that the best on this thing-270? No 64-QAM 5/6 support? Am I forgetting to enable some feature...again...I've forgotten more than I can remember about the 600N.

EDIT:
I think it's because this was a draft N chipset and no short gain index of 400ns, only 800ns, which makes sense why it can't hit 300 then...

Hi,
i have a serial pin connection to the mainboard of this router so it's easy to revert to a previous firmware using a tftp flash.
I have tested the K3X_mipsel32r1( and i can confirm the boot loop ) the days that i have wrote this article on the forum. Sad

the main reason of this post is to undertand WHY to use this kernel/build and how to flash.

i have found into the wiki of this router, at the end, that is possible to flash:
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/WRT600N

for "msoengineer" i can confirm what i remember about the WRT600N, so 270 Mbit is the theorical max for this old router.

I just soldered on two 4 pin headers onto the board, but I cannot get putty to see the router. I am using this as my guide for the wiring:



Anyone know if this is correct?

I did not connect the 5V, as I was using past experience to not hook it up.

I confirmed my usb to ttl is working right.

It would help to see the reset of the reference. Maybe orientation is the issue?

No guide regrettably... Just the wikicat page with it...

I don't know if my USB to ttl is 5V or 3.3.... No way to tell...have to break out the multimeter...

I can confirm the pin layout, my info here...

either of these two make any sense? or should I be able to fully read the output?

I had to name them with a txt extension to upload.

Well, I'm throwing the towel in on this one...I see there are two pads for resistors just below the tx and rx lines on the pcb...tried to jumper one of them and my iron was too hot and burned up the trace on the tx line out from the pcb (rx of ttl). Still get an output... But not clean... Something else is up.... Maybe you can sort out why the mipselr1 won't load...bs asked me to send my bootlog for troubleshooting...

He has the OG 1.0 of the 600N. I have the 1.1 and the mipsel firmware fails both tftp and webgui upgrade...

I know my ttl worked to flash my two ea8500's... Maybe got lucky? I'm not sure what is causing the gobbly gook output...need sleep... Night and thanks!

Usually, garbled output is a loose or bad connection. I've had to reflow solder and all kinds of fun on some devices.
