I noticed today that the V3 version of this model has an entry in the beta branch now, including both a webflash and factory-to-ddwrt version. I feel like playing some russian roulette so I want to see how well this works. I've wanted DD-WRT on this router for years, the stock OS is too limited.
I haven't been able to find any recent info related to this model, although I didn't exactly spend hours looking. When was this added? How much testing has been done? I'm willing to be a guinea pig for this, I have a backup router.

Officially supported since r45820:

Flash and report in the appropriate build thread. Keep in mind, releases 46604 and up use swconfig instead of the old Broadcom way of doing things with vlans and switched ports, so now the way of doing things is similar to Atheros, Marvell, and Ralink/MediaTek.

I guess there's some wiki updating to do...

Awesome! Thanks for the response. I'll keep your advice in mind too. This'll be my first ARM device flash, I've done a few others.
