Flashing a Colour Maximite 2 from Linux

The official method of updating the firmware on the CMM2 is detailed in the manual, and requires the use of STM’s ‘STM32CubeProgrammer’ software. I don’t really want to have to mess around with Windows if I can avoid it, and many of the steps listed in the manual assume the use of an earlier revision of the CMM2 with the processor on its own Waveshare daughterboard. With the model I have there’s only one board with the processor mounted directly onto it. Read more...

Logging the MikroTik LTE setup process

Today I used the setup I built in the previous lab to capture the setup process for the MikroTik R11e-LTE6 modem. Very little configuration is required for this in RouterOS. The first step is to configure the APN details for your mobile carrier. APN profiles are first-class objects in RouterOS, to allow them to be independently attached to and detached from interfaces and SIM slots without losing the configuration. /interface lte apn add name=vodafone apn=pp. Read more...

Running RouterOS on a PC Engines APU

This post is setup for a larger project; I’m trying to build a small homebrew router using OpenBSD and a MikroTik LTE card. Unfortunately documentation for this card is rather sparse; OpenBSD does recognise it on boot as a urndis device and a couple of serial ports, but to get it working requires configuring the card with AT commands over the first serial port. This process is not documented. Fortunately, it’s possible to enable LTE logging within RouterOS, so you can see how MikroTik themselves configure the card. Read more...
