Installing LEDE on Charter r6300v2


Not totally sure where to post this, but just some quick guidance for anyone else who wants to install LEDE on these.
The charter models are very cheap, so I picked one up. Wireless is barely functional on LEDE, but I personally don't need WiFi.

I used this utility

And ran commands from here

telnetenable ROUTERSMACADDRESS admin password

Then connect via telnet and type

burnboardid U12H240T00_NETGEAR

Then you can flash now flash LEDE.
