i know some of you keep the other partition with the stock firmware so i know this could be a problem for you guys.


If My memory serves, the stock firmware was a version that you had to open an online account for to manage somehow? Isn't that (IMHO) a serious security hole? Just curious why folks want to keep that?

I have both WRT32X and WRT3200ACM routers. While you can create an online account to manage your router settings, you don't have to. Keeping one partition on stock firmware makes it much easier to recover from a bad flash, or to change between DD-WRT and OpenWrt.

You can recover from a bad flash with dd-rwt on both partitions just as easily if not more easily as you can leaving linksys on one of the partitions.

If your flash goes bad with dd-wrt on both it will either automatically boot to the working partition as we are seeing with this oversized firmware, or you can force it to boot to the working partition with the triple power cycle method.

As for the ease of swapping between dd-wrt and openwrt, i am not sure. I just run dd-wrt.
