Just checked, there is a Kong build for the WRT1200 up. Not sure if it is for V1 or V2 or heck both..

http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-MVEBU/

Not sure if he is working on them again, as my 1200 running BS 10/20 has now been up for 2 days, 8:07 no issues.

Interesting. Hope he is going to give the WRT's some attention again. Although the latest Brainslayer builds work well for me. Running r33555 right now.

Guessing this build works well for either. Only real deference between the v1 and v2 is the v2 has the wireless controls baked in. LEDE/Openwrt only has the one for both.

I saw Kong's name on a few tickets / changesets a couple weeks ago.

Still hoping we get a 4.4 Kernel build for the WRT1900AC v1.

I just checked Trac and Brainslayer has already logged 6 changesets today. It’s 4:45 am Monday in Dresden!

I think he’s some kind of hybrid Linux AI. Mr. Green

You will see Kong every once in awhile doing changes. Nothing new there. He does lots of Broadcom router stuff.

On the other subject I don't think Brainslayer ever sleeps. Wink

Maybe instead of a $ donation I should send him some New Orleans coffee. Mr. Green

I hope he is, last messages he replied to me on was when some were trying to get together to send him a 3200ACM, and he said he could get one if he wanted but wasn't interested but said he may ask Linksys for a WRT32X when they came out... Maybe that peaked his interest again.

---OR---

I just flashed it on my 1200, using Linux 3.18.77-rc1 #71 SMP Sun Oct 22 11:06:19 CEST 2017 armv7l, maybe he is getting ready to help us with the WRT1900AC v1?

Would like to see get interested again. Now that there are some decent drivers for the WRT's maybe he will. Drivers is what drove him away before.
Did he include latest drivers? I think they are written for the later 4.x kernels.

well he did include the latest drivers it would appear. Would love for him to get interested in the rest of the WRT's. Suspect the wrt32x got his attention and he can get one to play with. He never displayed any real interest in the wrt3200acm. Drivers were too broken for him to mess with it.

And I never blamed him for it, LOL

Agreed.
With the state of the drivers, wrt3200 basically did not work with 3rd party driver support, I would have moved on also. Thankfully Brainslayer hung in there and now we have some good firmware for a good router. I ran my wrt3200 on the OEM firmware most of the time when I first got it a year ago this month. Fella posted it on Ebay saying he was tired of no stable 3rd party support. Was a good price so went for it.

I just upgraded my WRT1200AC V2 via the web GUI. The old version (Kong 30880) is on partition 1 and this version is on partition 2.

Everything seems to be working fine so far except for JFFS, which won’t mount. It worked fine with 30880, but not with this version. I tried disabling, re-enabling, and clearing but it still shows “Not mounted”. Any help would be appreciated.

Update:

1) I tried to enable JFFS using the CLI with no luck.
2) I also updated the first partition with this version and now JFFS doesn't work on that partition either.

So it looks like this update does not support JFFS. Please let me know if anyone can confirm this. Any comments would be appreciated.

Just tested this on my 1200 v1 with Kongs latest (10-22-17) and my ext4 drive mounts fine and i can mount it to jffs, but, my ntfs drive won't mount, so somethings going on, just not sure what.
