Just updated from v3.0-27858 giga, to dd-wrt.v24-33555_NEWD-2_K3.x-big-RT-N66U.trx, no problems at all. I would suggest updating over a wired connection just to be safe.
And do not do the upgrade firmware via a laptop, notebook, tablet or phone, so as to avoid battery and power issues. Plug the device to AC power if you insist. _________________ Router: Asus RT-N18U (rev. A1)

Router/Version: Asus RT-N66U
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r33525 big (10/17/17)
Kernel: Linux DD-WRT 3.10.107 #16312 Tue Oct 17 10:31:36 CEST 2017 mips DD-WRT

Reset: nvram reset before & after
Issues/Errors: yes: lost GUI for 5G radio within 7 days. 5G radio still functioned.
Post FW upgrade, did reconfigure by hand, including several additional reboots. (betas/2017/10-17-2017-r33525/broadcom_K3X/dd-wrt.v24-33525_NEWD-2_K3.x-big-RT-N66U.trx)
Sometime in the 1st 7 days of uptime on this, the webGUI stopped showing wireless settings for 5GHZ (wl1), and the 2.4GHz channel showed in the GUI as "Auto" with no choices (when in fact it was configured to a fixed channel).
Same symptom, whether accessing GUI via hardwired or wireless, and using multiple browsers.
Both radios still worked fine. Reboot brought both radio GUIs showing again. Don't know if cause is length of uptime, or (passively) accessing something else in the GUI.
