So I opened this device up and it appears to be a mix of the TP-Link TL-WR841N v8 and v9. The CPU is an Atheros AR9341-DL3A, the flash chip is a Spansion FL032PIF, and the RAM chip is a Winbond W9425G6JH-5. I have pictures of the chips if that would help. I would like to put DD-WRT on this if possible. Can someone assist? Thanks.

I was able to flash my Rosewill RNX-N300RTv2 with the latest version of DD-WRT (tplink_tl-wr841ndv8 r27805). Basically after reading through some OpenWRT forums, I saw someone had this program called TP????????.exe (firmware hw id modifier). I downloaded it from a website (google) and used that program to change the header of the factory-to-ddwrt.bin file with the header of the original firmware for this device from the Rosewill website. I'm uploading this file as an attachment. Hopefully this will help others who were in the same boat as me. Thanks.

I know this is an old thread but just in case someone was wondering how to put the serial connection on this device please see below. I accidentally bricked one of my routers copying the wrong version of DD-WRT on it. I bought this cable USB-to-Serial Cable: 3.3V TTL, 6 Bare Wires http://microcontrollershop.com/product_info.php?cPath=407_414&products_id=2561, attached black to ground on the picture, orange wire is TX which connects to RX on board, yellow wire is RX which connects to TX on board. From there I followed the instructions from this link at TFTP install/recovery via serial https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr841nd using V8 which is basically this router and was able to put the new image via tftp. Hope this helps someone out. Thanks.
