Minikrebs: A Customized OpenWRT image generator

Original Documentation:


If you want to know more about the project and how to use it, go to irc:// to #krebs or contact @makefoo on twitter.

Example Usage

Build instacam webcam server

# grab repository
git clone && cd minikrebs
# get everything ready for instacam
# this may need some time run initially
./prepare instacam 
# PLATFORM=TLMR3020 ./prepare instacam # for a MR3020 based image

# build the image
# flash the device, either copy the sysupgrade image (from output before)
# to the device or use the upgrade script (ssh must be available)
./upgrade <ip-of-device>

Build image that contains a webradio client

Build A webradio client based on probonopd@github's code

# If you want to build for a device other than the TP-LINK TL-WR703N, do:
export PLATFORM=DIR505A1 # for D-Link DIR-505
# Get ready
./prepare radio
# Build the firmware image
# Flash to the device - this asks for the root password of the device twice, then reboots
# Note: OpenWRT must already be running on the device
./upgrade # replace with the IP address of the device

The device will get an IP address via DHCP on wired Ethernet, and default password is "minikrebs".

Setting up WLAN client mode

  • Wifi: Scan, Join Network, Create / Assign firewall-zone: select lan (green)! (this is no longer needed since the firewall packet is no longer installed), Submit, Save and apply
  • Interfaces -> WWAN -> Advanced settings -> Override MAC address: Has the WRONG IP, so set IP+1, Save and apply
  • Interfaces: Both LAN and WWAN should be green now and both should have an IP address
  • HTML interface should be reachable on both addresses

If you have totally mis-configured the network and can't get in anymore, use "OpenWRT Failsafe" (using an Ethernet cable and the reset button)

Setting up radio stations and remote control codes
