Adding OpenWrt support for Asus RT-AC5300

Hey all:

I have an Asus RT-AC5300, on which I used DD-WRT. However, after messing with OpenWRT in a Virtual Machine, I'd like to use OpenWRT (and perhaps OpenWisp) on my main router. However, it seems as if the Asus RT-AC5300 isn't supported. How would I go about porting OpenWRT for the AC5300? I've compiled the firmware for the same chipset and all, but is there anything else I have to do to make this work and not brick my router?


Probably by looking into the bcm53xx target, at least the wireless should be covered by brcmfmac.

So is it supported now?

GT-AC5300 is supported, same device ?
no wifi though.
