I have an r7000 running DD-WRT v3.0-r28444 (12/05/15)

every time I try to do an update, I get a gui crash. i tried doing a factory reset and then an update, and still no luck.

suggestions? maybe a update via putty?

suggestions?!

Use telnet update. There was a build from early December2015 that had got a bug on the update UI and you couldn't update from there.

PS. Read peacock on how to upload images. This one is too large and breaks layout.

I would check the build thread for r28444 or the thread after. I remember this issue, as well, and remember that people posted ways to flash via the CLI. I'll dig around and see if I can find it.

Nevermind, found a doc where I saved the steps:
On WinSCP:
1 Select New Site;
2 File protocol: SCP;
3 Hostname: 192.168.1.1 (or your router IP); Default port is 22, but may vary depending on custom configurations
4 Username: root
5 Password: your admin pass
6 Drag downloaded firmware from Download folder and drop in /tmp

On putty;
1 Login on 192.168.1.1 (user root and pass);
2 Type:
cd /tmp (Enter)
mtd -r write xxxxx.bin linux (Enter) (Replacing xxxx with your firmware filename...)
