Installation

Please contact Abicom for more information about installing OpenWRT, were working on this page and will update it just as soon as we can

Currently images must be installed at the bootloader console via tftp.

Get the image you wish to install, and place it in your tftp server folder.

Interrupt the boot process, by pressing enter on the console.

Using 'pri' check the u-boot variables defined for downloading and flashing an image.

Default the tftp server ip is 10.10.42.30. Either set your server to this address, or reconfigure the u-boot serverip and ipaddr variables.

Check the u-boot variable that defines the download and flash process. Check what filename u-boot will use for the download.

"lfw=tftp 0x80060000 ${dir}scorpion450.img&&erase 0x9f050000 +$filesize&&cp.b $fileaddr 0x9f050000 $filesize"

Adjust either the server or the u-boot 'dir' variable to suit.

Rename your image to "scorpion450.img" as seen in the command above.

Start the download and flash operation with "run lfw".
