I have a GL-AR300M, currently in /etc/glversion is 3.024.
My problem is that I have installed some package via opkg and now there is a new version of libopenssl installed that lighthttpd (and some other software such as mpd) is not compatible with (and I also cannot update lighthttpd as opkg says it’s up to date).
I cannot find a way to downgrade libopenssl and so I thought the easiest way out would be to install new firmware - however with lighthttpd I have also lost luci.
So could someone please explain to me how to upgrade the firmware without luci?
So what is the “web Admin Panel” for you? Is that luci for you?
What I have tried is the uboot web-ui.
In that I have one button to select an image file and another to start the update.
I have tried all *img files from the nand/v1 directory.
Some (e.g. openwrt-ar300m-ubi-3.105.img) do not work at all. I get an “Update failed” immediately.
Others (e.g, openwrt-ar300m-ubi-3.024.img) sometimes work a little bit so to speak):
What happens is that the update prcess seems to start but there is no indication of any process and it seems that no matter how long you wait the device does not restart (as it is supposed to do).
When I then restart the device sometimes nothing has changed at all. Sometimes something has changed - the WLAN SSSID has reverted to the defaullt and the password has reverted to the default. luci (that does not work in my configuration) runs again and I can log in.
But as soon as I restart the device again everything is reverted back to where I started. Absolutely everything is back to square one.
I have now tried to do a factory-reset via the “30-30-30 method” but again this does not work - it again changes nothing.
I don’t understand what is going on here but my router is in a state where some things don’t work anymore due to an inconsistent state of installed packages and there does not seem to be any way for me to install another firmware. And (as I’ve become used to): No support from GL-Inet.
