For kwboot compile for ARM. See my u-boot release thread.

To download ARM kwboot binary for UART booting at Dropbox

kwboot-2016.05.tar

kwboot (this is an older version)

I don't have a MIPS kwboot, but you can find the binary at Debian site such as:

https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/mipsel/u-boot-tools/download

Quote

Download Page for u-boot-tools_2021.01+dfsg-5_mipsel.deb on MIPS (little-endian) machines


And then extract the kwboot binary from the DEB package "u-boot-tools_2021.01+dfsg-5_mipsel.deb".

They should be static binaries (don't need to install them).

Copy the appropriate kwboot binary to the OpenWrt router (any folder). And execute it:

./kwboot ....

I don't think it will work like that. I'm getting this error with both the mips and mipsel binary from Debian site:
./kwboot: line 1: syntax error: unexpected word (expecting ")")

Enter the whole command (fill in ...)?

Even with the full command, the error still shows. I googled the error and It seems to be a compilation issue.
I believe this is true because if the binary is executable, it will show a help screen like this even without the whole command.
Usage: kwboot [OPTIONS] [-b <image> | -D <ima
ge> ] [-B <baud> ] <TTY>

  -b <image>: boot <image> with preamble (Kir
kwood, Armada 370/XP)
  -p: patch <image> to type 0x69 (uart boot)
  -D <image>: boot <image> without preamble (
Dove)
  -d: enter debug mode
  -a: use timings for Armada XP
  -q <req-delay>:  use specific request-delay
  -s <resp-timeo>: use specific response-time
out
  -o <block-timeo>: use specific xmodem block
 timeout

  -t: mini terminal

  -B <baud>: set baud rate

You would not get that far if the binary is Arch incompatible. In fact, if you run the ARM version on your MIPS router, you would get an error about the binary itself, and it would not execute.

Yes, I couldn't get that far. That help screen was from the ARM version on the GoFLex running your rootfs. On my MIPS router, it would just throw
the same error I mentioned before. Not even a help screen show up

You would not get this far either, if the binary is Arch incompatible.

I have successfully compiled kwboot for Android (termux) today. It runs fine on my older Android 5 tablet and the GoFlex was able to boot, but on my Android 11 phone, It gives out :
xmodem not a data message
or
xmodem protocol error

Any ideas how to fix this? I tried repeatedly running it again and again (up-arrow trick) but it did not work.

gigas,

I don't have any idea.
