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.

Did you use a trailed build for your model of router?
The generics won't work for the first flash.


No, I dont use it, I cant find trailed file for ea6400/I thing it isnt relased yet/

This one I presume:

Do we have updates on this?
I have the same error:

Trying to install DD-WRT on Linksys EA6400.
Found bin r28374.
Can not install it.
Answer from router is:
"JCGI return 413: Request Entity Too Large"

Try this:

Flash this, then flash the full version of DD-WRT from ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/

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.

The DD-WRT FTP will get you the rest of the way. Enjoy Smile
