I've searched the forum and there seems to be a lot of threads related to WRT32X and it's cousin the 3200ACM. I hope that I am correct in saying that most of these threads seem to refer to getting the 3200ACM builds to work on WRT32X before WRT32X support was "officially" added to LEDE/OpenWRT.
I have downloaded the 18.06-RC2 as well as davidc502's (Build = r7493)
Before I attempt to flash anything I have the following questions which I hope you guys can help me with:
Do I flash through the normal route i.e. flash the bin file as if it were Linksys' ROM?
There are two bin files, Factory and Sysupgrade. Which do I use and why?
There was mention of 2 partitions which leads me to believe that LEDE could potentially run on another partition allowing the switching between Linksys's firmware and LEDE/OpenWRT. Is this correct?
If yes, how do I install LEDE/OpenWRT while keeping the original firmware? Is there a specific method?
If the above is mostly incorrect, what would be the best way to get either the RC2 or Davidc502 builds on the WRT32X while maintaining a route back to the original firmware and what are the latest bugs to be aware of?
In the future, you may want to notify him by doing this: @davidc502
Since I don't have your exact device, I can only help you with this question. Factory images are designed to work to flash from OEM stock firmware to OpenWrt. Sysupgrade is used to upgrade on a device already running OpenWrt.
@davidc502 Hi David. I recently purchased a preowned WRT32X ($50); been trying to install openwrt. Upload .img file but it does nothing. Just populates with name. I disabled ad/popup blocker on Chrome, Brave and Edge. Even tried in private window using browsers. Any suggestions? I am stumped!
Also tried setting up VPN on the factory fw; only allows me to upload an openvpn file. I use Torguard w/wineguard.
