The latest firmware available is the release build [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic/|Attitude Adjustment 12.09]] or the trunk build [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/|Barrier Breaker]], with working ethernet and dual-band wireless (disabled by default). If your wireless cannot be enabled when using wide channel modes, this may be due to the friendly neighbour "feature" that prohibits operation of such a mode and you may have to use the standard modes before wireless can be enabled. For some people radio0 works only when radio2 is also enabled.  The latest firmware available is the release build [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic/|Attitude Adjustment 12.09]] or the trunk build [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/|Barrier Breaker]], with working ethernet and dual-band wireless (disabled by default).

 +===== TFTP auto recovery in revision 1.5 =====
-==== Flash Layout ====+At least some revision 1.5 routers contains bootloader recovery TFTP client. To activate it press and hold WPS/Reset Button during powering on until WPS LED turns on. Connect computer to LAN1. Using TCPdump, you should see ARP requests from router having address 192.168.0.86 looking for address 192.168.0.66. 
 +  
 +<code># tcpdump -ni eth0 arp 
 +ARP, Request who-has 192.168.0.66 tell 192.168.0.86, length 46</code> 
 + 
 +Set up your computer to address 192.168.0.66, netmask /24 (255.255.255.0). 
 + 
 +<code> 
 +# ip addr add dev eth0 192.168.0.66/24 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +Using TCPdump, you should now see request for new firmware image: 
 + 
 +<code> 
 +# tcpdump -npi eth0 udp 
 +IP 192.168.0.86.2195 > 192.168.0.66.69:  44 RRQ "wdr3600v1_tp_recovery.bin" octet timeout 5 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +Rename factory image to given name and put it into TFTP server root.  
 +-> [[doc:howto:generic.flashing.tftp]] 
 + 
 +:!: In case you are flashing back original firmware, make sure original firmware image name does not contain word ''**boot**'' -> [[#back.to.stock.firmware]]. 
 + 
 +<code># cp openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wdr3600-v1-squashfs-factory.bin wdr3600v1_tp_recovery.bin 
 +# atftpd --no-fork --daemon .</code> 
 + 
 +After downloading, the flashing starts immediatelly. After cca. 1 minute, the router reboots automatically.

 +-> [[doc:howto:generic.uninstall]] 
 + 
 +{{page>meta:infobox:dangerous&noheader&nofooter&noeditbtn}} 
 + 
 +With the TL-WR3600 router, there is a catch: the stock firmware is obtained from the OEM: http://www.tplink.com/en/support/download/?model=TL-WDR3600 
 + 
 +  * in case the file name of this firmware file does not contain the word **//"boot"//** in it, you can simply revert back to original firmware 
 +  * in case the file name of this firmware file does contain the word **//"boot"//** in it, you need to cut off parts of the image file //before// flashing it: 
 + 
 + 
 +An example of an image file with the word "boot" in it is ''wdr3600v1_en_3_13_34_up_boot(130909).bin''. 
 + 
 +Cut the first 0x20200 (that is 131,584 = 257*512) Bytes from original firmware: 
 +<code> 
 +dd if=orig.bin of=tplink.bin skip=257 bs=512 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +You should transfer the firmeware image to the /tmp folder and revert back to original firmware (if availlable you can flash the firmware via the webinterface as well): 
 + 
 +Via the safer method using sysupgrade: 
 +<code> 
 +sysupgrade /tmp/tplink.bin 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +Or alternatively you can use the mtd method: 
 +<code> 
 +mtd -r write /tmp/tplink.bin firmware 
 +</code>

 +==== Useful Information about Stock Firmware ==== 
 + 
 +Updated versions of stock firmware have [[https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=46371|Firmware Recovery Mode]]. Recommend upgrading latest stock firmware before flashing to OpenWrt for the first time so you can utilise this if necessary.

 +==== U-Boot 1.1.4 modification for routers ====
 +Forum member [[https://forum.openwrt.org/profile.php?id=72549|pepe2k]] made a modification of **U-Boot 1.1.4** for **Qualcomm Atheros** SoCs based devices (the project is still being developed, so new devices and SoCs will be supported in the future). Up to date information, binary images and sources can be found on official [[https://github.com/pepe2k/u-boot_mod|GitHub repository]].
 +
 +This modification started from [[http://code.google.com/p/wr703n-uboot-with-web-failsafe/|wr703n-uboot-with-web-failsafe]] project, but supports more devices, all modern web browsers, has a lot of improvements and other modifications (like U-Boot NetConsole, custom commands, overclocking possibilities etc.).
