Got OpenWrt running on Mikrotik SXT Lite2 without any issues. I first
wanted to flash it over serial port, so I soldered pins to tx, rx and gnd
pins but when I didn't get any output on serial I thought that devices
can't be flashed to OpenWrt... so I left it for a week.

Then I saw that they have netboot procedure which is used to load openwrt
image into ram and then flashed from there, that worked without issues!

Now I have my first Mikrotik device running OpenWrt! I would recommend you
all get few Mikrotik devices and try for your self, but this device looks
like an awesome device for building outdoor 2.4 Ghz network. It uses AR9344
(http://cykey.ca/~cykey/airport/AR9344.pdf) and that is awesome because
that SoC is rock solidly stable under OpenWrt with ath9k driver.

Hardware is really nice (http://routerboard.com/RBSXT2nDr2) and it has
128MB of onboard flash storage! Those who are used to 4MB of flash on most
devices this will be a luxury! Antenna is 10dBi 60° sector (panel) antenna
in outdoor case, POE powered (8-30V). And price is also great for outdoor
device, usually cheaper than Ubiquiti Loco M2 devices...
