great router for the price, has 5g capability. was a bit of a task to downgrade then ssh in and flash worth the fun though.

 

https://www.libremesh.org/docs/hardware/xiaomi-miwifir3.html  followed these instructions and it worked great.  http://10.13.0.1 afterwards

 

https://www.libremesh.org/howitworks.html good read afterwards

 

recovering the router from u-boot, i soldered a uart onto it and got the message to press reset after flashing kernel from recovery folder on mega.nz.

Download firmware and store as miwifi.bin on an USB flash drive (must be FAT or FAT32)

then press reset when it says to in the serial console.
