    Unfortunately; there is no device tree for “mvebu64” architecture, only “mvebu”, which I would assume is most likely non-compatible with the espressobin. I could be wrong though…

    I was able to get mine to boot correctly after using the provided documentation and OpenWRT-DD image from this official site. Using a WIN10 PC, I was able to access command line prompt through use of a microUSB cable and the supplied USB COM tty driver and using putty.

    Following the documentation; I was able to configure uboot to auto-boot to OpenWRT on the MMC on each powerup.

    I was able to define the eth0 and wan interfaces, and then set up corresponding networks using the following UCI commands on putty;

    # I brought up the physical interfaces, and gave eth0 an IP address.
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
    ifconfig wan up
    
    # I set up the lan network to be a static IP (but have yet to define it as a DHCP server, as I plan to later);
    uci set network.lan=interface
    uci set network.lan.ifname=eth0
    uci set network.lan.proto=static
    uci set network.lan.ipaddr=192.168.1.1
    uci set network.lan.netmask=255.255.255.0
    uci commit network
    
    # I set the WAN network to be a DHCP client of another router device, so I could (hopefully) pull updates from the repository later;
    uci set network.wan=interface
    uci set network.wan.ifname=wan
    uci set network.wan.proto=dhcp
    uci commit network

    I then connected a run of CAT5E ethernet cable from a LAN port on my existing (and online) home router, to the WAN port of the espressobin. I kept the espressobin connected to my Win10 desktop via microUSB/Putty connection, since I needed to enter a few more commands yet…

    # I restarted the lan and wan networks
    ifup wan
    ifup lan
    
    # Then, I confirmed that I have an WAN IP address for the espressobin's WAN network which resides on my existing home network subnet.
    ifconfig
    
    # I ran a handful of pings to Google to confirm i was online.
    ping -c 10 8.8.8.8

    HOWEVER, when I attempted to use opkg update, the command failed. I jumped online to find that the address listed in the OpenWRT image as the repository feed for packages (luci, dropbear, etc.) doesn’t actually exist online.

    Is there an third-party repository for this OpenWRT image?
