  1. Just installed it over TFTP, and it seems to work perfectly.
    How is the long-term stability of openWRT on this router? Any lockups or similar that require a reboot after days/weeks/months?

  2. Used your script to upload via serial, replaced bootloader after flashing openWRT but don’t get wifi running. Got an error ‘Cant initiate hardware, error state -22’ from wifi driver. Same on vanila firmware, any sugestions?
    Perhaps hardware fault?
    Thanks 4 sharing your knowledge and files.
