Update ArcherD7 v1

I'm here to ask about the possibility to update my archer d7 v1 router with openwrt already installed from version 21.02.0 to 23.05.03.
looking at the firmware selector it seems possible, are there some risks to jump so many versions?

You'd probably be fine, but best practice would be to back up your config and update without keeping current settings. Then you can use your backed up settings as a reference to reconfigure the router.

so I should just avoid to directly upload the old configuration using lucy and manually reconfigure the router again to avoid any risks

Yep, it's the safest way to do it.
