Title says, stay away from this till its fixed. On DIR-825 B1 the 2.4 GHz radio is completely GONE, DD-WRT only sees ath0 as the 5 GHz radio thats it, even after resets and reflashes back to 14929...

Great..

After 15+ tries I managed to save my (well now my friend's) DIR-825 with caldata restore, all DIR-825 users do NOT flash 15279!

Firmware is too big - overflowing into the caldata area.

Yes.
With the caldata partition locked in a fixed place which is at 6.5 MB from flash start so firmware can not be bigger than ~6200 KB.
