I plan to upgrade a DLINK - WBR 1310 from 2MB flash to 4MB flash.

As far as i understand from reading other posts , it is possible to upload redboot on it and then install DDWRT.

I would like to know the steps of installing redboot via JTAG on the device with a 4 MB flash chip.

Thanks guys for your response.

@ sash

i know 2 MB devices are not supported , that's why i upgraded the flash to 8 MB.

i used a serial ST chip that seems to have simmilar control registers as the original spansion 2 MB flash.

the wbr-1310 i have seems to be similar to the dir-300 router , it comes with a IC+ chip and 16MB RAM.

i found somewhere on the dd-wrt website some redboot bootloader in ELF and ROM format and downloaded a ROM file version that seems to be the suiteable one for my router (IC+ / 8MB flash / 16MB RAM).

then i used TJTAG and it said that the FLASH starts from 1c000000 to 1c800000.

so i thought i upload the bootloader from 1c000000 to 1c010000 since it is 65KB.

@ fyi2000

in this post

http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=141179

you say...

Code:
0x00000000-0x00010000 : "Micro RedBoot"
0x003e0000-0x003ef000 : "FIS directory"
0x003ef000-0x003f0000 : "RedBoot config"
0x003f0000-0x00400000 : "boardconfig"


that means that the bootloader is the very first thing on the FLASH ?

will it generate the FIS directory and the config by itself ?

the other posts were talking about flashing the flash ic and then putting it back on the board.

i had the same idea too , but i could not find any full flash dump of the dir-300 i could use and then upgrade to dd-wrt later.

Initializing FIS directory and RedBoot config shouldn't be difficult. Generating boardconfig is the problem. Maybe you can try the tools written by ShadowAndy.

well i installed dd-wrt on the wbr-1310 with the 8MB flash chip.

i used a micro redboot i downloaded from the dd-wrt that is made for units with 8MB flash / 16MB ram / IC+ switch ICs.

i also uploaded the file generated from shadowandy's page which is supposed to be a dir-300 board config file.
the problem is that i had to use a pin from another unit in the genrator.

two things i noticed...

1. when i get into redboot at the startup , it complains not finding a MAC for eth0 i think.
it also appears that the radio is not working either.

2. i can not connect to the web interface of the unit on 192.168.1.1 even though i can connect to ddwrt via putty via serial port.

this is the boot log when i start up the router without forcing it into the redboot.

it keeps hanging in the very last line of the log and the only way to leave is typing reset.

as soon as i doo that the dd-wrt welcome screen comes up.

I found out what the reason is why i could not connect to the web interface.

It is the mac address that needs to be specified.

i was successful a few times setting up the right MAC address and hooking up to the web interface , and i could at one point even make the radio work too including WPA2 - AES encryption.

The problem is the setting vanish after a reboot.

It appears that the offset for the board config i am using is not correct and probably the same for the NVRAM.

do you guys have an idea where the board config exactly belongs.

Where board config and nvram partitions resides is router and firmware dependent.
If you want to fully utilize your 8MB flash then you have to use a dd-wrt build for a hardware compatible 8MB router.

I replaced the 8MB chip with a 4MB chip and got DDWRT running , but i have a different problem now.

the router does not keep the settings after a power cycle , what could be the reason for that ?
