Guys,

Take a looks at page 22 of this thread. I had the exact same issue you guys are facing. The person who posted about updating to the latest linksys firmware and then straight to DD-wrt, I believe is a V1 hardware. The flash would work for a little while but then after a reboot it would revert back. For the V2 hardware of the EA6350 that I am currently using, you must hook up a serial cable to the pinout on the motherboard. Page 22 of this thread breaks down my experience with flashing dd-wrt on my EA6350. Overall, I'm very happy that I did flash dd-wrt. It's been way better that the stock FW. Also due warning, there's no reverting back to stock after you're on DD-wrt. At least no method that I have found.

Good luck !

I'm here if you have questions or need an old KONG fw file.

Could you resize that image to 800x600, please? And yes, the original wikidevi is no longer, but there is these two sites for information:

Sorry about that, image resized. Here's a direct link to the EA6350 V2 site.

Hope this helps.

Please re-read this thread in it's entirety to figure out how to install DD-WRT on the EA6350.


...or someone that knows how, can write a Install Guide and/or wiki.

Because reading 26 pages (and growing), half of it not pertaining to you, is a good day spent.


It's like the old Linux saying:
Linux is the best OS!!!!
as long as you can spend 6 months reading forums, just to figure out how to turn up the volume.

EDITED: Yes, I agree that this thread is cumbersome. I will see what I can do to compile the information in the thread to pass on to the other moderator(s) who have wiki access to populate this page: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_EA6350.

ADD: I have posted in the moderator forum to see about locking this thread temporarily to clean it up and get the information sorted out.

@Dark_Shadow, if you have started manipulating the wiki page, thanks.

@kernel-panic69

Sorry, I did not mean to come across harsh.

It's just that I've been doing this for 40ish years. RtFM is a wonderful answer... If the .MAN is shot and to the point.

Growing up with a C64, the manual was 6 or 7 books, and that did not cover the add-on-hardware and programs*.

The long and short of it, I have two v1 and a v2. I'd just like to get DD-WRT on them so the family stops Sad Mad Evil or Very Mad

*Any one else remember the WordStar manual?

This procedure should work for both v1 and v2:

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1111599&highlight=#1111599

using this as a reference for pinout (verify with multimeter)*:

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1190747#1190747

Otherwise, you have to use the numminit-super-hacky file via Linksys stock webUI and then flash the webflash bin file.

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=988698#988698

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/download.php?id=33546

Somewhere in this thread, I believe they mention having to use a modified CFE for the v1 but NOT the v2 due to the 32k nvram bug in EA series routers:

https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1168061#1168061

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_EA6400

@imWACCo: No worries. I am only trying to help clean up the train wrecks.

@Dark_Shadow: If you removed the placeholder for the wiki, that was not a nice thing to do.

I don't think new devices pages are really necessary, since the procedures for all these are basically the same, right? Other than the 6350v2 that is, which is not in the supported list but can be flashed via serial?

Is all that is needed to properly support it is for BS to add the board id? Looks like lots of these models all use the EA6350 build already.

I will update the EA6400 wiki to mention which files to use for the appropriate model.

I have already updated the Supported Devices wiki to point the EA6xxx devices to the appropriate threads, afaik:
EA6300, EA6350v1, and EA6400 point to EA6400 wiki
EA6500 and EA6700 point to EA6700
EA6900 points to EA6900 (unchanged)

Should I update Supported Devices to add the 6350v2, and point to the serial flash thread, or just mention it in the wiki (at least until and if BS adds the support, if its easy).

I would ping BS about the v2. I don't think there is much difference, but he may want certain information to port it and have it identified properly.

https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru/Linksys_EA6350_v2

As far as new device pages, I dunno. People want Gerber in a spoon. I personally think that would be a little more logical and organized than the train wrecks I've seen on the forum and in the wiki, but I digress Cool Wink Evil or Very Mad

Looks like these nvram params are needed from the v2:
    boardtype
    boardrev
    boardnum


There was a ticket for this which mentions the v2 is boardnum=20151023:

And who's names are in the comments? Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil Cool

@imWACCo: If you could use the serial method of flashing and give us a dump of the CFE boot log before you flash one of each in text files and attach them to the ticket, that would be awesome! Just a small request...

EDIT: I edited my previous post about procedure to reflect LOM's post about the CFE for v1 and technoside's post about the CFE for v2. I'm not going to entertain deslatha's broken English interjections. Sh*t this thread is a train wreck.

Well, no and yes. I've not seen my TTL cable in... 8?... years. Just ordered one from Am Prime, should be here in two days.

I got a bunch of different N/AC routers for free. It seems like every one of the %&#@ things need TTL

kernel-panic69, what can I do to help? sorry for the mess on this thread. I have a spare EA6350 V2 not currently using it, and I can get whatever is needed for this.

@technoside2, imWACCo: Pretty much an entire serial boot log from stock firmware, preferably. Attach to this ticket: https://svn.dd-wrt.com/ticket/6529

P.S. If you don't have access to the Trac system, you can also attach them here as text files and I can transfer them to the ticket.
