Hi all...

I have a couple WRT54GL v1.1 I use as backup routers.
The latest DD-WRT version I can install on those is 38253.
Good news, as it works, but bad ones also, because anything
newer than that bricks the router.
Till now I managed to unbrick them with the "paperclip" method
several times, but I don want to test my luck much more.

Someone managed to install something more recent than that ?
What could have changed from 38253 onwards to just brick
them ?

TIA

My new build release notes wrote:
k2.4 (broadcom/) builds were fixed in 39715 (broken in 39144 through 39654)
I don't recall issues shortly prior, but I also wasn't testing my old WRT54's then.

I was able to move from Tomato 1.28 to DD-WRT v3.0-r40189 mini (07/04/19) on my WRT54GL v1.1 like that:
1) 30-30-30 (hard) reset made on Tomato 1.28;
2) Flashed through Tomato 1.28 web interface to DD-WRT 07-04-2019-r40189 (dd-wrt.v24_mini_wrt54g.bin) listed as Beta version successfully;
3) 30-30-30 (hard) reset made on DD-WRT v3.0-r40189 mini (07/04/19).

All went OK and so far it looks stable. I will write here if something is not quote well in the future.

So far found that:
1) "klogd" can NOT be enabled, leading to no possibility to log in a file firewall logs if enabled (the same can be seen from the GUI and with "dmesg" from the CLI).
