I have a R8000 with latest Kong build dd-wrt. But I cannot perform nvram erase. I always get "flash is NAND. nvram: Invalid argument.".

I tried "mtd -r erase nvram" and got the same error, however, the router was reset to factory default. Please help.

Long shot but have you tried re-flashing and try it again it with another kong build? I think there is a new one now. Or probably changing the client/way you use to telnet into the router.

I have the following message

Flash is NAND
erase[1572864]


Is that normal?
What does it mean?

Thanks.

I tried quite a few version and still cannot. I tried mtd -r erase nvram. The router would be set to factory default mode but I still have error message. Sad

I currently test dd-wrt on Asus, Buffalo, Linksys, and Netgear. Too many to list.

Looking for more test units (newer models) for the project...got a brick?...PM me to make a hardware donation. (USA) A donation is not a debricking service....it is a way to "Give back" to the dd-wrt project.

I do NOT provide personal assistance through chat or phone....so please don't ask.
