Hello Everyone,

Is it safe to upgrade e4200 STRAIGHT from currenly installed build 27119-k26 to any build-k3x using web gui? No need to start with a mini nv60k or do 30-30-30 or reset?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!![/b]

Thank you, KrypteX!

That link does not answer my question. I know that part mini build first then mega build with a couple of 30/30/30 between.

my e4200 is presently flashed with k26 build. Any k3x build does not have a mini nv60 or nv64 build.

My question should I go straight to k3x from k26 with no 30/30/30 or reset?

I was confused to read here few different opinions regarding the k3x upgrade process. I am not sure which is right or wrong. And this to avoid to brick my box. i hope you understand my point.

Thank you once again, KrypteX!

After doing that what is the K3X build to use? There are no more nv60 builds for K3X on the new beta builds.

I successfully flashed my two linksys routers e4200 with 26138 k3.x build known as the most stable build following the upgrade process documented at the link you provided. No Tx errors! Repeater bridge works perfect! I was finally able to connect my ipad to the virtual interface with wpa2/aes on. VAP does not even work in the latest 2.6 builds.

Thank you KrypteX!

From now on I get to find a better build stable and faster than the old good 26138. I'll upgrade slowly, gradually and safely tot he lates k3.x build. No need to use nv60 anymore.

Have a wonerful day bro!

Hi e3000usr,

Just follow the steps below and you'll be fine!

K3.x upgrade

To update your E3000 unit to K3.x. These EXACT builds MUST be used to upgrade to K3.x for the first time. Any other builds will soft brick the device....Start with a hard reset then follow the steps below.

Three steps required to get K3.x on the unit:

1 - K2.6_21676_mini_e3000 ....wait 5 minutes....hard reset.....next load from the GUI

2 - K2.6_21676_mega_nv60K ....wait 5 minutes....hard reset.....next load from the GUI

3 - K3.x_21676_mega_nv60K...wait 5 minutes....hard reset.

....after that you can put a newer K3.x_mega build on directly...no need for nv60K builds any longer.

then:
    dd-wrt.v24-26947_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-e4200.bin

hi Gseely

How is your build 26947 k3x? Stable? No wifi disconnect? Higher bandwidth rates? No tx or ex errors? Repeater bridge working well with wpa2/aes? The reason I am asking you is that my build 26138 is a good stable and reliable ddwrt flash but I am disappointed by the low wifi rates (no more than (54mbps in N 5ghz).

thanks!
