OpenWRT installation guide for RockPro64
#1
Hi there,

I’d like to install OpenWRT in the PINE RockPro64 (followed the installation instructions here: https://openwrt.org/inbox/toh/pine64/pin...pro64_v2.1) but I have a problem now. 

I’ve downloaded the OpenWRT image from here: https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/...hip/armv8/ and flashed it into a 64GB microSD card. 
When I insert the microSD card to RockPro64 and plugged in the power, there is no response. The display was black and showed nothing. 
 
Does anyone install OpenWRT in RockPro64 before? Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I have not put openwrt on the RockPro64 yet, although it sounds like a bit of an overkill. What I have done is install it on a raspberry Pi 4...You may of course just say that the Pi is just as powerful and also an overkill!!
I am doing the install headless. Openwrt defaults to 192.168.1.1 as a static address and you should be able to ssh into it as root. Can you do that?? I started with the Pi behind my ISP's router and had to change a few settings to be able to see the internet and do the required updates and installs.
So, first question. Can you ssh into your RockPro64?
