Are you talking about the V1 or the V3 device?

For the v1, i tried to make it work, however the partitions on the device made it very difficult. Even with all firmware options basically stripped out, it was not enough space.

For the v3, i have not tried yet. I have one sitting on my desk here but have not opened it. It has a higher chance of working due to the smaller wireless firmware bin in my opinion.

Edit : I have the v3
Gargoyle is based on openwrt right?

Perhaps I will try, but I will quit my home and need it working. I'm Always afraid to brick it.
I 'm fully satisfacted with gargoyle on my wdr3600, and official firmware doesn' t provide share from a usb thetering from gsm ( this permit me to preserve battery life)

According to openwrt wiki, v3 is:
MediaTek MT7628AN ramips mt76x8
Here: https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots ... ps/mt76x8/

If there is no solution actually with gargoyle, I will try the openwrt tonight.

The wifi should be supported as of a month ago I think.

So, I'm flashing it following https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/887325/
I hope that 5ghz will works soon, and that gargoyle will be ported on this chipset too :)

Hello Guys,

have there been any updates to this? I really want to run Gargoyle on my TL_WR902AC V3, but i can't find a compatible firmware image.

If you're in a position to attempt to compile the image yourself (e.g. by using a Linux VM) I have a target config that covers the WR902AC v3 I can make available from which I have built images (I was playing with a gl-mt300n v2). I'm not in a position ATM to make a build publicly available though.
