I am trying to Install openWRT on a Raspberry but unfortunatelly i can't achieve manage it.
Let me tell you which steps i followed:
*Important Note: Tested on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Vol.2 AND Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Vol.2*
1)I downloaded the image from
2)I used Win32DiskImager to write the image to the SDcard
3)Safely removed the SDcard and plugged it in the Raspberry.
Result: Rainbow Screen.

I tried to find a solution to that. Some said to change the boot_delay value to 1. Done that. Same problem.
Someone said that that meant that the Kernel was outdated. I downloaded the latest Kernel and overwrited the old one. Rainbow Screen again.
Another suggestion was to flush Raspbian and overwrite bootcode.bin, start.elf, fixup.dat. No openWRT again.
I also got nothing on my screen in some attempts (with different combinations).But i don't want this to be a lengthy post.
The point is that i followed lots of tutorials (including the one in and still got nothing. I am suspecting that i am missing something about the whole "Flush" thing but i started trying 2 days ago and it gets really frustrating.
Any suggestions ?
Thank you in advance :)
