GL-MT300N-V2 Mango update Tor version

Hello Forum,

I use a GL-MT300N-V2 Mango with the Tor firmware “GL-MT300N-V2 ver.3.215”. This version was released on “2022-11-22”. The version of the tor plugin is I am not sure where to check the version of the tor installation but I assume it must be as old or even older than the firmware version that I installed.

I researched and find that I can use this imagebuilder to build an image by myself Tor - GL.iNet Router Docs 3. Is this a way to get an image with a newer version of Tor? The linked github repos seem pretty outdated too if I interpreting this right.

Problem: I assume my tor version on my GL-MT300N-V2 is old
Question: How to update the tor version on this device

Thank you.

You can try to download the latest Tor which is, as show in packages/net/tor/Makefile at openwrt-23.05 · openwrt/packages · GitHub

The bin is Index of /releases/23.05.3/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages/

Maybe you can try to install it. But I suspect it will work correctly.

Maybe you can just install openwrt vanilla firmware.

Thank you for this idea. I installed openwrt 23.05 with the “upgrade path” Firmware over the GliNet WebUI local upgrade menu. Then I followed the openwrt documentation regarding the Tor installation.

And its working very good. I am now on tor- :slight_smile:

I think it should be more obvious that users with the GliNet Firmware are on an old version like in my case My understanding is, that for this version even some CVEs are listed tor vulnerabilities - Repology but my knowlegde is not sufficient enough to judge if this is a security problem or not. But in my opinion it is always better to use latest software or at least newest available.

thank you.Upgrading tor is already in the works
