Nope.
Kong was the only dev working on it and he has gone dark the last month.
Could be he is on holiday but we don't really know.

Hi, I was wondering if there is any indication how long before a working version of DD-WRT is available for the Linksys.

I've tried using OpenWRT but I prefer the overall DD-WRT experience.

Thanks

There was actually an unannounced release April 14, but other than that I haven't seen hide nor hair of Kong either. And it was posted as a .bin only, so if you were on stock firmware you needed to update to the previous .img so that you could update to the new .bin. Unless you had already flashed the previous .img, that is *smile*. That was the case here.

I know everyone wants an official release but its probably better to wait for things to be all worked out. Marvel is still pushing updates to the wi-fi drivers giving us more goodies. The last push happened just 4 hours ago:
https://github.com/kaloz/mwlwifi/commit/85cdc98457c31d27a62f3ded31f508a75a95c810

Kong won't let us down!

I am willing to wait, all of the DD-WRT stuff I have used in the past has been awesome. So I am willing to wait for the official release.

Thanks to everyone, especially Kong

Thanks @gufus for pointing that update out to me from Kaloz. Nice update. Thanks @Kaloz for your work. I should learn that when I name names I always leave someone out. Sad

No offence taken Smile

David Lin dlin[at]marvell[dot]com from marvell.com fixed the driver, not kaloz, I opened the issue.

They used to blame Marvell for not releasing a good driver, so that's wrong.
A single user was able to point out a flaw and have it corrected (thanks).
so...
1. Does Linksys already have the cleaned-up, pretty/shiny version, so no updates (since December) are necessary?
2. Is DD-WRT still officially not supporting WRT-1900AC (that was a bad question, please use your own words).
3. Does Kong's driver (anyone's driver) let a person use Unii-2 (channel 100)?
Thanks in advance

My first router was a wrt54g. I had dd-wrt on it and loved it.

When the wrt1900ac came out, I had to get it, expecting to put dd-wrt on it too, of course.

I was very disappointed to hear that Linksys was obstructing the development of third-party software, by not releasing the driver.

I am so glad to hear that the situation has improved and that you guys are working on it. I eagerly await an official release.

Thanks for all the good work! You rock!

**update**
Kong released a new version of the firmware today.



Since this is a Marvel based chipset, do we have a Marvel forum we should be posting in?

I don't mind posting in the Broadcom or Atheros but it seems a bit odd to locate Marvel posts in another chipset forum.

Is it even worth adding a Marvel forum?

Kong, since this router has 2 firmware partitions what do you suggest as a standard for upgrading the ddwrt firmware to a newer version of ddwrt?

In other words, running your firmware on flash partition 2 & wanting to upgrade that partition to a newer version of ddwrt should we just run the gui upgrade or do we need to boot off the backup flash partition 1 (Linksys firmware)?

Would hate to brick the thing already.

The good thing is that now we have two other marvel based routers that are going to be able to benefit from Kongs work:

WRT1900ac V2
http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=156194

WRT1200ac
http://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-WRT1200AC/

Both use the same open driver Smile

The press really hated the fan 1900AC fan.
It probably saved .59 cents to not include it.
I also see they lowered the power supply rating.
I want my fan, I like my fan.
Hasn't ever come on in a year, but I still like it.
Now, if they'd said "V2 has more channels", "V2 complies with the new FCC rules", I might have sat up and taken notice, and budgeted living like a monk for a month to buy yet another one (I have two V1).
I still want a signal meter and channel 100.
It won't matter much if it comes from Kong or not, but Linksys/cisco/Belkin seem to have abandoned TPS and Unii-2

If your fan didn't come it just means that you don't load router high.

Downloading torrents at 100mbit over wi-fi during several hours makes this fan ON, and it sounds really terrible and has big resonanse in addition.

Btw new CPU Armada 385 rated up to 1.6GHz, so perhaps they just downclocked it to 1.3GHz to get rid of the fan.

Not sure how the fan was implemented in oem fw, but it is now implemented as pwm fan which allows to control the fan speed in steps, unlike gpio fan which only allowed on (at full speed) or off.
When I ran tests it was not necessary to run it at full speed, thus you cannot really hear the fan at all.
