Cant find my exact router model on OpenWrt (RT-N12+ B1)

Hi,
So i recently bought a router i wanted to instal OpenWRT on but I bought before checking. I have a Asus RT-N12 + B1. -> https://www.asus.com/Networking/RT-N12-plus-B1/
And i can't seem to find the exact model here: https://openwrt.org/toh/start?dataflt[Model*~]=rt-n12

Should i use "RT-N12 +" or "RT-N12 B1" ?

Thanks for any advice. I am quite new to this.

RT-N12 B1 is a Broadcom powered device
https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/ASUS_RT-N12_rev_B1

RT-N12 + B1 is a Mediatek powered device
https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/ASUS_RT-N12%2B_B1

ie. totally different models.

Do not use the RT-N12 images on your N12 + B1

The RT-N12 + B1 is powered by MT7628NN SoC.

The RT-N12 + is powered by older MT7620N SoC.

Looks like there is no openwrt support for RT-N12 + B1 variant.

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/ASUS_RT-N11P_B1

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/ASUS_RT-N12%2B_B1

fwiw, both share same FCC-ID MSQ-RT1P00

Found this owrt page for RT-N12plus B1 which indeed uses 'RT-N11B P1' image
https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/asus/asus_rt-n12plus_b1

It wasn't listed as RT-N12 + B1 which may be why I missed it in previous search.

Asus use DD-WRT. Why change? I had a 4G-AC68U and DD looks far
more detailed and finished then the most other crappy firmware out
there. Anyway, here the link to the broadcom based model:
DD-WRT

This is mediatek based model (B1) and not compatible with dd-wrt

Installed openwrt snapshot Asus rt-n11p b1 firmware to Asus rt-n12+ B1 Via tftp and it worked flawlessly.
