Access serial header (easy way)
Since opening the case is relatively hard (because of the hard to remove silver clip and strong plastic clips), the easiest way to gain Serial access is by using some snips to cut out part of the case.
To open the case you have to remove two screws underneath the information sticker and one screw below the silver front clip which should push forward, then you need to pry open the rest of the case which is clipped together (2×3 side clips; 2 front clips; 2 back clips).
Developers are currently working on OpenWrt for this router Here. The following tutorial allows only a complete shell access to the router.
When the firmware will be ready for this router, this page will be updated with a proper guide.
