Be careful!
FW r32597 bricks DIR-615rev.H.
Back to life only after multiple!!! (thought I had to scrap the device) trials via
emergency room - D-Link FW - DD-WRT factory webflash - DD-WRT webflash (r31924 locally stored but not on the server anymore).
Pretty laborious.

Unfortunately i went flashing as soon as i saw the r32597 build, without looking into the forum first.

Bricked my DIR-615H when coming from r31924 (i'm keeping a local copy, too), had to do the same recovery procedure as described by ervau. Instead of going back to r31924, i went with the public r31899 for the time.

Now r32753 is online, who wants to flash? Twisted Evil

The first 615H i updated was on r31722, and the update to r32753 went without any problems.

The second 615H i updated was on r31889, and there were some issues after reboot:

- the web interface didn't open anymore. the browser connected to the router's ip, but nothing was displayed
- while internet access was working at first, i couldn't ping external DNS or IP adresses after 2 or 3 reboots via SSH
- did a recovery flash back to r31889, flashed again to r32753 but this time including "reset to defaults after reboot"
- this time, the web interface was accessible altough slow and sluggish. did take a few hits to F5 while configuring as some pages would suddenly blank out
- did a final reboot after applying my settings, which seems to have fixed the web interface problems, everything works fine and fast again
