I check regulary if new Firmware is released, so today I saw 18.06.3 is released, and dled the .bin for my LinksyWRT 3200 ACM, then went to System Menu of OpenWRT Webinterface -> BackUp Flash Firmware Menu, and choosed -> Flash new firmware image ... then choosed KEEP SETTINGS, and choosed the openwrt-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys-wrt3200acm-squashfs-sysupgrade file, i dled.
OK, reboot, but it shows still in Luci Webinterface-> Menu -> OVERVIEW version -> OpenWrt 18.06.2 r7676-cddd7b4c77 / LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-19.170.32094-4d6d8bc)
What I am doing wrong? why it doesnt show OpenWrt 18.06.3 ??
Someone has a hint? Thank you for any help or hint!
This device has two boot partitions. When you flash it, it flashes the other partition. So to have both partitions flashed, you have to flash a second time after booting from the partition you just flashed.
Though, I recommend that you try 18.06.03 first before you flash the other partition.
Thanks mhegab for reply,
I thought It will upgrade the current partition Im booting from, so for to upgrade, I have to boot into the other partition, make the upgrade there, for the partition Im using now get upgraded, and then switch back...to the partition Im using now, correct?
But to make good use of the dual boot thing, while you are on the other partition (which you just updated), give it a try first and make sure all is working well with the new release before you update the first partition.
Thanks a bunch for explaining, mhegab and davidc502 ...this really helped, now I know, for the future, what to do in case of doing a upgrade! I only hope, I find the pw...lol, I had setup for the other partition 1 (a), as I used partition 2 (b) since many many month
in worst case, I must reset partition 1 (a) to get access... lol
@tmomas sadly, I have massive Problems, DNSCRYPT doesnt work anymore for me...so its not solved yet....Im thinking go back previous version... but will now retry, if I get 18.06.3 to work....if not, go back prevoius version...
@tmomas ..seems Im a idiot, cant see behind pencil a OPTION to mark it for SOLVED ..where is it, on TOP? where my first Text is? I see Pencil there, but only Time right beside it when I postet it.... when I press the Pencil, it opens only a HISTORY Window....
