Any tutorial that points you to the router database is wrong. Please ensure you know which version of the WRT1900ACS that you have.

Sticky: DD-WRT Installation, Upgrade & Basic Setup–Cliff Notes

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=331187

You may need to use a build from early 2018 for initial flash; You need at least build 32597 (2017) so that you can upgrade via DD-WRT webUI.

Current release is 48081: https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2022/01-11-2022-r48081/

No. What you need to do is upgrade to the most recent build with the webflash file in the current release directory... please read the linked information given.

You did follow the upgrade instructions about knowing which partition was in use and what to set prior to upgrading, correct?

sometimes the browser corrupts the download.

I used this method to get dd-wrt running on a 1200ac v1. Updated to webflash r48081 today with no issues from the gui.

You need to carefully read what is given to you.

If you just skim through the reading material and start flashing a bunch of different firmware builds to this router, you MIGHT end up bricking your router.

I'm not sure how different the 1900 is, but this video is for the 3200. Maybe something in this helpful to you, as well?

[quote="kernel-panic69"]You did follow the upgrade instructions about knowing which partition was in use and what to set prior to upgrading, correct?[/quote]


No.
I´m starting again from 0.
Firmware Installed is: DD-WRT v3.0-r34315 std (12/30/17).
I don´t know in which partition of the nvram is.
Telnet is on.
Putty is running.
Router Reseted for 20 seconds.
And it Booted the DD-WRT firmware, so probably i installed it bad using the two partitions.

so:

telnet 192.168.1.1
root
admin

ubootenv get boot_part
a_Penv->crc = d69a62b6
crc32 = d69a62b6
1

So i´m on Partition 1

Now i don´t know how to continue.
Probably if i install a newer version from the dd-wrt GUI it will say again " upgrade failed"

Now i´m on the index , link provided by "Kernel-panic69"

Index of /dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2022/01-11-2022-r48081/linksys-wrt1900acs/

I think that i should download -
ddwrt-linksys-wrt1900acs-webflash.bin 11-Jan-2022 05:54 37490688

is that correct?

Check out the video above. May be helpful? Also, I'm no expert, but if you're starting again you may want to start with a firmware version newer than 2017? Seems pretty old to me. Good luck!

Yes thanks for your video.
I started trying to update via linksys GUI,
with a lot of dd-wrt most recent versions,
I tried a lot of times but the router booted in linksys again and again.
Only with the Factory version Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r34315 std (12/30/17) the router booted in dd-wrt

ACS V1 or V2? Model No. is listed on the bottom in the upper right corner.

Which browser? Over wired Ethernet also no software firewall or security?

Should be able to install r34411 factory-to-ddwrt then webflash to current.
