FriendlyARM NanoPi R5S

The NanoPi R5S (as “R5S”) is an open source platform developed by FriendlyElec for IoT applications. The R5S uses the Rockchip RK3568B2 CPU, two 2.5Gbit and one 1Gbit Ethernet ports, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4X RAM, and 8GB or 32GB eMMC flash. It has one microSD, one M.2 NVME, two USB 3.0, and USB Type-C power delivery.

OpenWrt does not yet have an official release build for the R5S like it does the R4S. However with the move to kernel 6.1 snapshots are now available. Alternatively, FriendlyElect periodically posts new builds of their fork on their website, which they call FriendlyWrt.

Download the image you prefer, decompress it, and write it to an sd_card. Then insert the micro SD card into the R5S, plug in power, and it'll boot the image. From there it can also be copied to the eMMC from the LuCI menu. Note that while OpenWrt uses 192.168.1.1 by default, FriendlyWrt uses 192.168.2.1. Read the FriendlyElec wiki for more info on their image.

Remember that snapshots do not come with LuCI preinstalled, for that you can SSH root@192.168.1.1 and opkg update && opkg install luci.

FIXME Find out flash layout, then add the flash layout table here (copy, paste, modify the example).

Please check out the article Flash layout. It contains examples and explanations that describe how to document the flash layout.

To upgrade simply flash a sysupgrade image. Users may install luci-app-attendedsysupgrade for an assisted way to update this image and all packages in LuCI.

generic.sysupgrade

  • Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/mini/system/upgrade/ LuCI Upgrade URL
  • Upload image file for sysupgrade
  • Wait for reboot

If you don't have a GUI (LuCI) available, you can alternatively upgrade via the command line. There are two command line methods for upgrading:

  • sysupgrade
  • mtd

Note: It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.

sysupgrade

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc

mtd

If sysupgrade does not support this router, use mtd.

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
mtd write /tmp/xxx.abc linux && reboot

Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

The default network configuration is:

Interface Name Description Default configuration
br-lan EXAMPLE LAN & WiFi EXAMPLE 192.168.1.1/24
vlan0 (eth0.0) EXAMPLE LAN ports (1 to 4) EXAMPLE None
vlan1 (eth0.1) EXAMPLE WAN port EXAMPLE DHCP
wl0 EXAMPLE WiFi EXAMPLE Disabled

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Numbers 0-3 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 4 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 5 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.

Port Switch port
Internet (WAN) EXAMPLE 4
LAN 1 EXAMPLE 3
LAN 2 EXAMPLE 2
LAN 3 EXAMPLE 1
LAN 4 EXAMPLE 0
