Herelink - Ethernet

Herelink Ethernet I’m trying to get ethernet passthrough working. I’m running on the Beta Channel, SRU01200616 on the ground unit and the corresponding version on the airside.

I understand an ethernet adapter with a R8152/8153 chip is required, I have an ANKER A7610011 and a Cable Matters 202023-BLK for testing. Both use the correct chip according to the Amazon comments, although it's very hard to get the information directly from the manufactures.

On the ground side, I have a generic OTG adapter and have tested it with a USB stick. On the airside I have an OTG charging passthrough cable, this allows to power the adapter (and the airside, and cube, I’m not sure if that is a good idea).

I understand with an adapter on both ends it should be a transparent link but I can't seem to get it working.

It does have to be said that I am a complete beginner with regard to networking stuff such as this.

The next trick is getting ADB access to confirm (GCS) Here is a new bootimage for the GCS unit to make the R8152/53 detect. 2 (GCS unit bootimage with R8152) the stock image includes AX8817X AX88179_178A NET1080

to update the boot image via USB (i assume you have ADB access already/developer mode)

adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash boot boot.img fastboot reboot

Next, we enable ADB via TCPIP, but first, we need to enable this via USB

adb shell setprop persist.adb.tcp.port 5555 reboot

then after the reboot, get the IP of the GCS unit (eg

adb connect adb shell

you should get the shell again do a


and check if eth0 exists

Now verify we can ADB into the air unit once you have ADB to the GCS unit, power on the air unit and do a

adb shell (gets you into the gcs unit) adb connect adb -s shell

this should now get you into the air unit.

Next try running a

/bin/busybox brctl show

under interfaces, you should see vxlan1 and eth0

optimus:/ $ /bin/busybox brctl show bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces br-vxlan 8000.00e04c360345 no vxlan1 eth0

also, run

ping ping

these are the bridge endpoint IP’s

during testing, make sure the screen stays on there GCS unit, otherwise, power-saving features limit background data flow (A most likely setting I have not found yet)

I've just confirmed that this is working ok. one possible caveat. if your home network is using 192.168.0.x, things may not work.
