OM1P config

From DD-WRT Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


The OM1P has a hardware watchdog that will reset the device every 5 minutes if it's not reset via a GPIO device.

[edit] Permanent Fix

install DD-WRT Micro_Redboot to disable the HW watchdog permanently

[edit] Workaround

After you got the route flashed you have 5 minutes to configure this.

Tested on:

  • DD-WRT v24 Beta (08/03/07) std
  • DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) std

Go to your web interface add a custom script:

chdir / 
/sbin/gpio enable 3 

echo "1" >/proc/gpio/3_out 
echo "0" >/proc/gpio/3_out 

echo "1" >/proc/gpio/3_dir 
echo "0" >/proc/gpio/3_dir

Then enable Cron under management and add this line Code:

*/4  *  *   *   *   root  /tmp/

Log into via console or web interface and restart cron:

stopservice cron && startservice cron

Not sure but i think you have to do this every time you restart the device.

# wait one second/milli second?
