I did install LEDE and it seems to be working fine
The serial cable installation was pretty straight forward similar to the EA8500 with newer stock firmware. I read about here:
So very unfortunately, there will be no possible way of getting ddwrt on to the Linksys EA9500. Although we have developed dd-wrt for it, it will not be able to work as the firmware for both the models (v1 having a dual core broadcom northstar cpu. And v2 having arm 64 quadcore cpu) are encrypted and signed via pgp. A sad day indeed Sad
I don't understand how LEDE gets around this. Does LEDE have access to signed/encrypted firmware?
