Router: linksys ea6400
Firmware: stock linksys (version: 188.8.131.52989)
Errors: I cant flash ddwrt from stock FW, it says:
it took me weeks to figure out that i had to configure and set a password on the stock firmware (EA6500, but similar stock deisgn) and re-log into it to avoid the 'undefined error' message; then i could load dd-wrt.
linksys-ea6400-numinit-super-hacky-smaller-version.bin will give you a partially broken version of dd-wrt (stripped of many binaries that made the image too big), then you can flash linksys-ea6400-webflash.bin to get the whole thing working.
I am a terrible person for making this, but it works. A hex editor was involved, but, damnit, I've had this router for 2 years and never been able to get DD-WRT loaded onto it.
