Hello! I'm attempting to follow the install instructions for a brand new Netgear R8000 which came with Firmware Version V18.104.22.168_10.1.63.
According to the R8000 info page, this install should be as simple as downloading the most recent version, logging into the router, and then using the built in upgrade system to flash the update and get to OpenWrt.
"As of OpenWrt 19.07, the R8000 can be flashed to OpenWrt through the stock web UI."
The version linked, however, did not pass the verification step and failed to update.
Any suggestions on what to try next? If I can't manage to get OpenWrt running, I'm planning on returning this router and downgrading to one that I can run OpenWrt on.
