  • Route all traffic over a VPN when on the go.
  • WiFi to ethernet bridge.
  • A small web server.
  • IRC bouncer.
  • Meshnet node (CJDNS, Batman...).


With the release of v1.5.0, NAND flash support is not available yet. Before upgrading the router, the u-boot environment variable bootcount needs to be set higher than 3. This can be achieved by ssh'ing into the router and running :

fw_setenv bootcount 4

After rebooting the router,the router can be upgraded using a nor image. When upgrading, it is important that any settings are not saved and that the "Keep Settings" box is unchecked in luci or that the -n flag is specified when using sysupgrade.
