The gl-e750 is a portable travel router that gives you safe access to
the internet while traveling.

Specifications:
- SoC: Qualcomm Atheros AR9531 (650MHz)
- RAM: 128 MB DDR2
- Flash: 16 MB SPI NOR (W25Q128FVSG) + 128 MB SPI NAND (GD5F1GQ4UFYIG)
- Ethernet: 10/100: 1xLAN
- Wireless: QCA9531 2.4GHz (bgn) + QCA9887 5GHz (ac)
- USB: 1x USB 2.0 port
- Switch: 1x switch
- Button: 1x reset button
- OLED Screen: 128*64 px

Flash instruction:
Support for sysupgrade directive upgrades, as well as luci upgrades.

OLED screen control:
OLED controller is connected to QCA9531 through serial port, and can send
instructions to OLED controller directly through serial port.
Refer to the links below for a list of supported instructions:
https://github.com/gl-inet/GL-E750-MCU-instruction

- Serial: TX pin marked as UART-SOUT, located near the switch (115200 
8N1, 3V3 level)

- Mobile: Quectel EP06-E in mini pci-e slot, USB 2.0 connected


Correct?

I'd consider lte-power or lte_power as name here.

mtd-mac-address can be dropped here, as it will be read from this offset by mtd-cal-data automatically.

Typically, GL.inet devices can be installed with sysupgrade, so a factory image is not necessary? (And it's not set up anyway)
I think this can be dropped.

If you send a newer patch, please make sure to add a v2 ...

mtd-mac-address can be dropped here, as it will be read from this offset by mtd-cal-data automatically.
---> Will the offset of 0x2 be automatically added?

If you read caldata with mtd-cal-data, it will automatically apply a MAC address found with offset +2 compared to the start of the caldata.

So, cal-data at 0x1000 will use MAC address from 0x1002
caldata at 0x4000 will use MAC address from 0x4002
etc.

mtd-mac-address for wmac is only needed if that region does _not_ contain a proper/valid address, so you need to overwrite it with a sensible value (e.g. for many TP-Link devices, where there is only one valid MAC address in uboot partition, and all others need to be calculated with increments).

Further reading (still WIP): https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/mac.address#mac_address_pulled_by_driver

I'm only used to the old SPI-only devices from GL.inet, where you could just do anything with the sysupgrade image.

However, if you need a separate factory for u-boot now, go for it. But then, I'd prefer it to have the .bin extension as well.

And you still need to add a recipe for it ...

Hi adrian,

However, if you need a separate factory for u-boot now, go for it. But then, I'd prefer it to have the .bin extension as well.
--->In the uboot of gl-e750, the extension .bin is considered to be nor firmware and will be handled according to the upgrade process of nor firmware.
--->The reason for this is that in the original ar71xx target, the bin extension was nor firmware and the .img extension was nand firmware.
--->Although the E750 has not released nor firmware, we still have this feature in uboot.

Best regards,
Luochongjun

Hi,

I retested this patch just to be sure I didn't miss anything before.


Did you test this patch on actual hardware before sending this?

I've got 2x e750-Mudi devices which:

- I first flashed to the latest Gl.inet firmware (18.06 based) (works fine)

- Tried sysupgrade --> results in platform_check failure

- Tried forced sysupgrade --> does not boot afterwards

- Tried uboot recovery (both sysupgrade and factory images) --> does not 
boot


Using gl.inet official img, the uboot recovery mode works fine.

Thanks,

Koen

Hi Koen,

I'm really sorry that I missed your previous email.

Tried sysupgrade --> results in platform_check failure.
In the original device naming convention, E750 was named glinet,gl-e750
However, in today's openwrt, the name of the device is glinet_gl-e750, so platform_check failure is prompted.
You'd better use uboot to upgrade your firmware, follow the link below for the uboot upgrade steps
https://docs.gl-inet.com/en/3/troubleshooting/debrick/

this device also only has 1 ethernet port exposed on the board.
Yes, the E750 has only one ethernet port,
In E750, we only use GMAC0, but in ATH79 target, I had to initialize P4 via GMAC1 connected to the Ethernet switch, so you'll see eth0 and eth1 on your system.
I have tried to use GMAC0 to initialize P4 directly, but after initializing P4 in this way, the speed of P4 can only be 100M, not 100M/10M.
