I will pray that someone will make a new firmware version for this model.
I hope that the changings in the code are not too big? Wink

I would also like to know if you get it flashing via serial. If you get it, I would try it on my router. But I don't want to mod the router unless I know there's a good chance it will work.

Interrupting the boot process on version 5.0 works just fine by typing "tpl" before it boots. However, I'm having trouble finding the correct image to flash with this process. Guess I'll have to compile it myself to get anything other than the factory and sysupgrade bin files?

Bolt,

I noticed the original post showed this WR941ND 5 uses the same CPU as the WR841ND v8.

Perhaps the DDWRT firmware for WR841ND v8 would work on here? It may not activate the third antenna, but it might at least boot to DDWRT...

From what I can tell, that is what I would try if you can load it via serial.

I will, tomorrow. I'm setting it up for work, so I'm not on it during the weekend.

Nope. Had a sudden deadline. Work is work Smile
I'll try again tomorrow, unless someone has already figured this one out.

To be honest while waiting for an update I ll be using linksys E900 V1 model instead of WR941ND V5. Please update WR941ND V5. Anyone reading this, forward this message to the forum admin and gurus. One of them will probably will publish the update otherwise no ddwrt senior will read this topic Very Happy

Here is a header patched factory-to-ddwrt firmware for WR841NDv8 which the WR941NDv5 will accept.

Use the official dd-wrt webflash bin for WR841NDv8 for future updates until the time when WR941NDv5 gets its own builds.

Observe, this is for the "new" v5 only - the "old" v5 which is a v4 should only use v4 builds!

Please share the dd-wrt webflash bin file also since there is no files in router database for wr841ndV8. Thanks.

Well dont use the webflash bin for wr941NDv5 on top of WR841NDv8 factory bin, I ve bricked my brand new wr941ndv5 since there is no files in router database for wr841ndV8. Why dont u share the webflash bin here also?

please help the link u ve shared for factory bin works but I m not sure which dd-wrt webflash bin you are talking about we should update on top of factory bin. Because in router database WR841NDv8 has no files no webflash no factory bin. Are you talking about we should use the webflash bin in WR941NDv5 on top of WR841NDv8 factory bin u've shared. I dont wanna brick the router. Please enlighten us. Thanks.


You don't need any webflash bin right now, the factory bin is r21676 which currently is the latest released dd-wrt firmware version.
You will need a webflash bin in the future when new dd-wrt firmware is released - use the webflash for 841NDv8 if there is no release for 941NDv5.

The router database is worked on and the recommended build for 841NDv8 is not yet there, it should however not be too difficult for you to read the forum and find new build advertisement threads with link to the build..

Please paste the output from dmesg directly after rooter reboot - it contains important info for the developers and may speed up the official dd-wrt support for the 941NDv5.
