can you attach them here seperately, in two different posts?

the OpenWRT i would just use a URL for honestly.... we just need the BIN file.

Okay,

I found one of those free file sites. See if this works. I have uploaded it here:

Hi,

This one will not get you back to the factory version, but it gets you back from the OpenWRT issues. You may be able to go back to the factory version afterwards, but I have not tried that yet as I want to keep DD-WRT (this is verion 18000).

Oh okay thanks for clearing that up.

Apologises if i'm being stupid here [its very likely i am] but can someone enlighten me as to whether we are saying that if you can somehow backup the firmware from your existing buffalo stock firmware, before you flash it to a community build, you will have a way back somehow?

I'm not shy around a linux prompt, but only to basic uses....

guessing some part of my knowledge is lacking here when it comes to this bit.

Current running the latest stock firmware i could find:

http://www.buffalo-asia.com/cgi-bin/support/download.cgi?country=ar&to=wzr_hp_g300nh2

but would like to try the latest community build out, as i really want to get customising it and stuff, but still trying to find a "happy place" with it.

Dont particularly want to go to a different looking open type of firmware, as DD-WRT is all i've known [at home here] for a long time, so kinda wanna stick with it, but finally try out some of the fancier things.

Not yet tried the "User Friendly" version, although perhaps that'll do all i need (i'm kinda looking at setting up a torrent client within the router, but using a share on my NAS) so if the above works better and can do it, then perhaps i'll have to switch to that.

If anyone can provide a bit more info on what precautions to take before flashing a community version so that a way back to what I had is open to me, then that would be great Smile

Many thanks and sorry for being dumb.

So does anyone know of a way to revert back to the buffalo DD-wrt, or is it pretty much a one way trip to DD-wrt?

If you got back to my earlier posts, i was able to get back to the stock buffalo firmware with no issues.

it is not for the faint of heart, but it works.

Don't take this the wrong way, but no. If you cant understand what is currently posted, then its most likely possible that you will mess something up and actually brick the router beyond recovery.

I would just wait for someone to piece together a working bin file that can be flashed from DD-WRT.

I managed to unbrick my router with a little finagling, using tfchui's guide but now the router no longer accepts data from modem...
When I was trying to use Tfchui's guide I had to use a second computer to set up a local FTP server with the file, then I managed to use the commands to re-flash that particular open wrt firmware, then flashed back up to dd-wrt's current release for the nh2.

So any idea on how to make it a router again? or is it possible that I somehow fried the input?

Actually disregard the previous message, I managed to just get the mtd1 dump onto a flashdrive, and ran the commands from /mnt, running stock again!

Thanks for all the help guys.

Was you able to get info about how to create the 28-byte header ? If yes, please send this to me, I need to do the same thing. My email address is danieliliescu@yahoo.com.

Many thanks,
Daniel
