openwrt on Edimax NS-1500N working?

gWell I wasn't expecting that to happen.

I thought I'd try the fon 2.0n openwrt build environment on it as they are similar chips, anways  I messed around with kernel configs abit and seemed I broke something so I had to manually select setting, so I picked rt3050 options and proper memory size an hey presto a stock fon2.0n flashed fine :O
wifi and usb all seem to work, next is how to remove all the fon branding etc. but for now I can start writing my data logging software now yay!

With a bit of fat cut out the firmware I bet this would work on other edimax stuff  like the 3g-6200n and maybe even the 36-6200nl?

Change of plans?

Had a tiny bit more progress on the zoom, managed to dump the firmware, and now I've been able to distinguish the header and checksums, all the info will be documented in a wiki once working.

Also another ebay bargin an Edimax NS-1500N, this listed on their site as a wireless NAS but has an RT3050.

This thing is tiny! its like 1/2 the size of the zoom. its listed as having 4MB flash on the edimax site but Amazingly it seems to have 8MB of flash inside :O so I'll be moving focus to that.
