I’m trying to install OpenWRT on the H68K i just received today, and I cannot follow the instructions, as the erase tool will not load in the RKDevTool - it simply stays ‘greyed out’ as if it is still loading the image, for what seems like ages - i left it for 15 minutes.
This isn’t normal I assume, so i am thinking the erase tool image is not valid in some way? Please help.
Also in the instructions online, it mentions selecting the bootloader, but I cannot find that download: H68K-Boot-Loader_xxx.bin Can a link please be provided?
I am having the same issues im running it on an older Microsoft surface, which i thought may be the issue> i see on the source forge page there is an android version of this devtool that i am going to try. this is pretty frustrating
I really didn’t have too much trouble getting the image installed. From a standard Windows 11 machine, I downloaded all the tools and images they listed on the install page. The only part that did not work for me was getting into MASKROM mode (and it won’t work in any other mode). Here’s what I had to do to make that happen:
Connect the USB cable
Press and hold the reset button
Keep holding the reset button until you see the the RKDevTool report the MASKROM device found.
After that, just keep following the steps to erase the old image and flash the OpenWrt image.
If it still doesn’t work, your unit might be defective.
Finally id does work. After cleaninig up the flash, you do NOT need to flash Android firmware first. Flash OpenWRT right after cleanup. Instruction is not clear here. It says that Android firmware should be flashed first.
But WIFI still does not work with OpenWRT firmware…
