Hi, i am trying to flash dd-wrt on my Archer C8 V3 (US) router. There is a very good thread (now locked) about different attempts to get dd-wrt on the router and then back to stock: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=283416 However all those tests are about version 1 or 2.
/dev/mtdblock2 on / type squashfs (ro,noatime)
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=62564k,nr_inodes=15641,mode=755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noatime)
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noatime,mode=600)
root on /overlay type tmpfs (rw,noatime,mode=755)
/dev/mtdblock2 on /mnt type squashfs (ro,noatime)
root on /mnt type tmpfs (rw,noatime,mode=755)
none on /etc type ramfs (rw,relatime)
none on /lib/wifi type ramfs (rw,relatime)
none on /usr/lib/lua type ramfs (rw,relatime)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,relatime)
I can't find definitive information on the v3; only v1, v2, and v4.
Accorind to the boot log it has 16MB flash, so i guess it would be possible to open the rev1 buidl on it, but i don't know how to flash from CFE. Is there any document describing how to flash dd-wrt from CFE? How to get the linux and CFE parts from the firmware image?
