How do you get the Flint into Uboot mode to upload?
I tried pressing the “synch” button while booting with a LAN cable plugged in (LAN nearest the WAN), it just booted normally into th current firmware?
According to debricking article, should flash 3 times then LED goes white.
and speaking of uboot,… I was hoping for some sort of uboot backup (firmware+user config) before trying out 4.xx :: so if i don’t like it, i execute a file and previous firmware and config that worked, restored instantly. If such feature does not exist, IT Should!
Kernel 4.4.60 (OpenWrt 21.02-SNAPSHOT, r16273+113-378769b555) and still IPv6 not working. At least I can now use material-theme for LuCI. With all these can’t resolve address errors the flint still isn’t ready to be the primary router connected to the fibre modem. I still prefer old but well supported WiFi 5 routers.
I could not download the gre protocol for Flint.
I sort of expected this as the feed is opewrt snapshot, where as the AXT-1800 has some gl-inet respositories. I suspect the focus is on get Slate AXT 4 out the door and then flint.
From my quick test for normal routing it seems OK, anything too fancy and you may have package dependency problems. Not ready yet, but I will be loving the flint when version 4 becomes stable!
Until then AXT-1800 seems the best GL.inet router.
