Luxul xbr4500 alternative firmware

Hi I have a XBR-4500 and I noticed it runs openwrt.
I am wondering if I can use custon f/w on it.
I need a way to block websites and I need to be able to "drop" inbound traffic instead of "reject".
I'd also like more log information like dropped incoming.
I'd also like to remove domotz & Router Limits as I wont be purchasing them and would like them removed if possible for security reason.

Does anyone have any info on this router?
Should I sell it and get something else?

The reason I bought it is:
1: I dont use wireless and most router have wireless
2: My dir655 was gigabit but wouldn't reach even 1/2 gigabit speeds (180Mbits) and I now have 300Mb
3: I got it brand new for $100CAD off an online auction

It would be nice to see my logs and block IP ranges for security reasons and this router is lacking.

Example of what I could block with my old router:


Have you checked the Table of Hardware?

I don't see an "xbr4500" listed as being supported.

While this update comes quite late, I find it quite exciting.

As it happens Luxul XBR-4500 has its .dts file upstreamed and OpenWrt provides firmware for it starting with the commit 1d47f81581bc ("bcm53xx: build images for Luxul ABR-4500 and XBR-4500 routers").


very interesting, thank you!
