MR3020 issue when installing PirateBox 1.0
July 10, 2014 06:12PM
Hi,

I've just bought a MR3020 to test the PirateBox 1.0 system.
But I've got a problem !

Here's what I did and the problem I encounter :
- I have plugged a 8Gb usb key with the install directory in it
- I browsed to 192.168.0.254(in 3G mode) and did a firmware update (the firmware is the good one : openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory.bin)
- The router restarts but after waiting a couple of minutes, something seems to go wrong : the router reboot every 20 seconds.
- So I decided to unpower the router an look inside the content of my usb key. I've found that it was NTFS formatted. So I formatted it to FAT32 and plugged it again to the router.
- After powering it up and waiting a few minutes (15 minutes), the lights were stables and I decided to try the telnet, witout success because there was no route to host.
- So I decided to unplug the usb key and look inside it's content. The log show me that the key was too small (no space letf on the device).
- I'm currently trying with a 32Gb usb key, but it still the same : after rebooting and waiting a long time, I can't access to the router (192.168.1.1) using telnet. Windows tries to get an ip address but can't. Inside the install.log this is what I get : http://pastebin.com/FeNdj9wZ. What I see is that there is no space on the device... but I'm surely missing something...

The access point "PirateBox : Share freely" is shown and my android phone, but I can't access it : alway trying to get an IP address.

What should I do ?

Cordially

Okay, I'm responding to myself.
I am under Windows XP, so here is what I did to connect via telnet :
- Go to network properties, go to TCP-IP properties, and choose use this IP address : 192.168.1.2, network mask : 255.255.255.0 and default gateway : 192.168.1.1 . Set DNS to 192.168.1.1, and I can connect via telnet.

But I always got the same issue : the disk is "full". Here is the df command :
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs                     896       828        68  92% /
/dev/root                 2048      2048         0 100% /rom
tmpfs                    14588        64     14524   0% /tmp
tmpfs                      512         0       512   0% /dev
/dev/mtdblock3             896       828        68  92% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay         896       828        68  92% /
/dev/sda1             31250016     11904  31238112   0% /mnt/usb
So I can't even do a passwd command to write to the disk : no space left on device...

My MR3020 is not connect to the web, only to my PC using a rj45 cable (and I only have one network card on my PC).

What can I do ?

Thank you in advance...

Working on this problem...

I followed the instructions on : http://piratebox.cc/openwrt:reflash_with_usb without going into failsafe mode (I thought I don't have to press the WPS button in my case).

So I have copied the firmware on the usb key, plugged the usb key into the router and write the firmware on it.

This time, after reboot, the df command gave something better :
root@OpenWrt:~# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs                  896.0K    216.0K    680.0K  24% /
/dev/root                 2.0M      2.0M         0 100% /rom
tmpfs                    14.2M      9.1M      5.1M  64% /tmp
tmpfs                   512.0K         0    512.0K   0% /dev
/dev/mtdblock3          896.0K    216.0K    680.0K  24% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay      896.0K    216.0K    680.0K  24% /
/dev/sda1                29.8G    158.9M     29.6G   1% /mnt/usb
/dev/loop0               98.2M     28.4M     64.9M  30% /mnt/ext

and this time I could do the passwd command and access via ssh.
thumbs up

But trying to do the post install stopped me immediatly because the /opt/piratebox/www/board/config.pl was empty.
confused smiley

I think it's anormal, so I have deleted install.log from the usb key and rebooted the router with the usb key plugged. Now the wps light is flashing and I'm waiting. I can access via ssh and the process list is :

Maybe it's installing... or not...

I'm going to sleep and will see tomorrow morning what happened.

If you have some ideas...
