Last 2 stable releases not available for Linksys WRT1900ACS

Hello. I have a Linksys WRT1900ACS v2 which has been happily running OpenWRT since sometime last year. However, the last two stable releases (I believe 22.03.4 and 22.03.3) have not been available for it—as in, firmware downloads don't show up in either the "firmware selector" or "table of hardware" linked from the OpenWRT homepage.

Can anybody help me understand what's going on? Has my router become unsupported? Could there be some build issue introduced sometime after 22.03.2 that needs attention? I am willing and able to get under the hood and troubleshoot a broken build if necessary, but I can't find any information on why firmware might be missing for a particular device so I don't know where to start.

I'm sorry if this is answered elsewhere, but I've looked for answers on several different occasions and found nothing.

uhm, cough, cough use master.

Are you referring to the file marvell_a385-db-ap-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin linked at

Can you help me understand how this file differs from the device-specific sysupgrade files I've previously used, if at all? This, again, is a question I've previously searched for and found no clear answers to. I am a relative newcomer to OpenWRT so things that are obvious to you may not be so obvious to me.

Ah, I see, you are likely referring to the chain of comments starting here in which some breakage is discussed. Thanks.

I referred you to a post that explains why the mvebu target devices were disabled. I assumed by reading the post you would understand they are currently borked with the stable kernels, you need to go back to previous stable, or preferably forward to master snapshot with kernel 5.15.x

You referred me to what appears to be a general announcement post for the 22.03.3 release with a cryptic comment to "use master", which means nothing to me, and still doesn't even after reading the thread and getting the gist of what the actual problem is. I am a self-admitted relative newcomer to OpenWRT and not psychic. If you want somebody like me to actually understand what you're talking about, you ought to use more words or (probably even better) link directly to the comment in the thread where the discussion of the issue starts.

But we did get there in the end. Thanks, again.

The current master might be getting wifi drops though: Users needed to test Wi-Fi stability on Linksys WRT3200ACM & WRT32X on OpenWrt 21.02 - #894 by xopher

I just installed it on a WRT32x and I'm getting random wifi drops. Someone mentioned their WRT1900ACS is having the same issue.

Reason is given in OpenWrt 22.03.3 third service release.
