I finally got my TP-Link MR 3040 running as MiniPwner.

Thanks to the recent fixes in OpenWrt this device is now supported and can be set up as MiniPwner following the "Build One" steps.

This piece of hardware has the advantage that it already includes a 2000mAh Battery in a sleek housing.

For more details check out TP-Links website:

Everything works just as described:

BusyBox v1.19.4 (2012-07-16 05:30:14 MSK) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

I am trying to do the same with my TL-MR3040.

When I follow the 'Build One' steps to 27, my device seems to be running out of space.

I tried to delete the 1.7MB file in
rm /tmp/opkg-lists/

and run the commands again of step 27 but it is still out of space

du -sh at / shows 16.6M

Any advice?

I can't reply because apparently my reply is spam :/

megal0maniac said "(bongk, why isn't extroot used by default? Just one extra step, and you can skip opkg config, -dest every time you install, and symlinking problematic packages. I could even build an image with USB support and extroot pre-configured. One command to copy /overlay, reboot, and you're set)"

Yeah I agree that's a better solution. I went the route I did because it seemed simpler and I wanted the setup process to be as straightforward for newbees as possible. Though with all the extra little hacks that are needed to install and run software from /mnt/usb it probably ends up being a wash.

hi jatiki,

I unfortunately bricked my TP-Link MR 3040

What is the quickest way to unbrick it?
