I got an Archer C9 v5 (EU) on hand, could someone guide me how to contribute the development so make it works with DD-WRT?

The hardware looks similar as v4:


Information from FCC.gov:


But the size of official image go much bigger:


Can upgrade from stock v1.0.0 firmware, to above Archer C9(EU)_V5_180423.zip, which show with v1.2.2.

Tried to flash with DD-WRT Archer C9 v4 firmware, but Archer C9 v5 web UI reject to do so (well, as expected...)

I also check that adding v3/v4 support shouldn't be a big issue from DD-WRT point of view:



Many thanks Smile

    I too have Archer C9 HW V5

    Question was asced more then month ago, and no reply....

    What about support Archer C9 HW V5?

    I have UART console connected with root access.

    But when I trying mtd write archer-c9v4-webflash.bin rootfs tells that mtd locked

    Code:

    Could not open mtd device: rootfs
    Can't open device for writing!
    root@Akronite:/# mtd unlock /dev/mtd3
    Could not open mtd device: /dev/mtd3
    Could not open mtd device: /dev/mtd3

    Get the flash layout then wait for Kong release fw. you can post what going inside. all have same in linux os.
    cd /proc
    then do cli such:
    cat /proc/mtd //how many mtd and what kind
    cat /proc/partitions //layout block of mtd
    cat /proc cpuinfo //what type of cpu
    cat /proc/iomem //structure of sdram
    wl -a ethx revinfo //what type of wl chipset
    wl srdump //internal eeprom of wl
    cd /sbin then ls -s //cli
    cd /bin then ls -s //cli for copy or etc...
    then back fw up to usb device
    check size of kernel=size of FW-rootfs
    then you can looking for ddwrt that have compatible until Kong release support.
    check fcc id on the back of router and do google search.

    it haves FLA1: 16 MiB (Winbond W25Q128FVSG) ???
    should be 2MB spi IC for boot,nvram and 128MBx8bit esmt flash IC for FW.

    Same here! I just purchased an Archer C9 v5 without checking that there's no v5 dd-wrt available. Sad

    My Archer C9 v5 is acting up with stock firmware. I came here hoping to find support for this router. Like everyone else, I would love to see support added for this router!

    Any update on this? I recently bought a TP-Link since it was supported by DD-WRT but found out that it is v5 which I do not see a firmware for or any comments on if we can use the build for v4 without issue.

    Broadcom HW is outdated right now. Especially MIPS based devices. I don't even have a single unit with this soc.

    ARM broadcom will get more attention again once we receive new broadcom based units. But right now it is more fun to play with atheros, especially when you don't have to workaround the number of issues broadcoms nas has.


    Good luck Rolling Eyes

    Has anyone donated a sacrificial device to BrainSlayer to port it? Serial dumps submitted? There is required information needed to port a build. Has anyone tried flashing the v4.x firmware for giggles? .....
