#12636 new defect

D-Link DIR-615-D3: eeprom dump is defect

Reported by: whatever Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


On first boot of openwrt on my D-Link DIR-615-D3 the file /lib/firmware/RT305X.eeprom is created by reading 272 bytes from /dev/mtd2 at offset 0.
At least on my hardware this is the wrong partition and offset.


  • wifi not working
  • wrong mac-address on wifi
  • wifi-led shows wrong status

Dirty fix:

  1. dd if=/dev/mtd1 of=/lib/firmware/RT305X.eeprom bs=1 skip=16384 count=272
  2. delete /etc/config/wireless
  3. reboot

A proper fix should of course dump the right eeprom in the first place.
Maybe /dev/mtd1 at 0x4000 works for all dir-615-d models while the current /dev/mtd2 @ 0x0 only works for some? Otherwise the dump script should check the first bytes of several locations and only dump if it "looks" right (starts with 0x52 0x30).

Patch was confirmed to be working on D3/D4 by "-=niki=-" and "7f_orz" in the forum!

It would be great to have this patch (and #12653) applied to Attitude Adjustment before final release. The changes are minimal and proven to be a huge improvement for dir-615-d owners, there shouldn't be any risk for regressions.
