Alternative Partition Reboot Web UI (luci-mod-alt-reboot)


This package allows you to reboot to alternative partition on supported (dual-partition) routers. This package overwrites default Reboot (System –> Reboot) page.

Supported Devices

Currently supported devices include:

If you’re interested in having your device supported, please check OpenWrt Forum Support Thread.

How to install

Install luci-mod-alt-reboot package from Web UI or run the following in the command line:

opkg update
opkg --force-overwrite install luci-mod-alt-reboot

If the luci-mod-alt-reboot package is not found in the official feed/repo for your version of OpenWrt, you will need to add a custom repo to your router following instructions on GitHub/jsDelivr first.

How to uninstall

Run the following commands in ssh session to your router:

cp /rom/usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin/system.lua /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin/system.lua
cp /rom/usr/lib/lua/luci/view/admin_system/reboot.htm /usr/lib/lua/luci/view/admin_system/reboot.htm
rm -rf /var/luci-modulecache/; rm -f /var/luci-indexcache;

Notes/Known Issues


I’d like to thank everyone who helped create, test and troubleshoot this package. Without contributions from @hnyman, @jpstyves it wouldn’t have been possible.
