I second this question. I've not been able to find any concrete information.

So, just recently decided to start using DDWRT after some recommendations of people I talk to and ran into issues....

stock model WRT32X using the 07-04-2019-r40189 and was constantly getting invalid firmware (using the img file) and was getting incorrect when attempting the bin file. Doing a bit of research, really didn't find anything specific that was useful. Decided to use a different build to test and found a few people that had no issues using 01-18-2019-r38326 and was able to load it first time go.Hope this helps anyone having the same issue I had.

Linksys WRT32X with serial 22C10
Venom Version 1.0.170828.208

stil does not work Smile in fact I believe that there is no 2019 image that would work.

after hours of wasted efforts to install dd-wrt on wrt32x, this worked for me. for others trying to install, i am adding the link to firmware version that is working.


thanks bluethunder1080 for the solution.

Just bought a WRT32X (S/N starting with 22C11) and also kept getting "invalid firmware" when trying to upgrade from stock to FW_WRT32X_1.0.666_DDWRT.img.

- At first I tried 09-07-2019-r40932... no good.
- I tried rebooting the router in case that would help but still no good.
- Then I tried 01-18-2019-r38326 which sounded promising from others... again no good
- Then I went and downloaded all of the 2019 builds up to 09-07-2019-r40932 as I was ready to try them all.
- I started with 01-02-2019-r38159, and to my surprise it didn't get the "invalid firmware" message when uploaded!
- Then I tried 09-07-2019-r40932 again, and was even more surprised to find that it now worked too.

So it seems like either the router just needed some time to get "settled in" (I did happen to leave it alone for ~1hr) before accepting firmwares or some other action I did caused it to start accepting firmwares but I have no idea what it could be.

Since that was the latest image at the time I just went ahead and did the install, not wanting to risk it giving me the "invalid firmware" message again.

The install was successful, after which I did trick to upgrade from the DD-WRT factory to webupgrade image on the same partition, and now am running the full 09-07-2019-r40932 build with no issues Smile

Perhaps this can help some of you who still got "invalid firmware" even after trying old images and may have given up.

I just installed the firmware on my 32X and at first it would not take the img file. I was attempting the newest listed (v3.0 build 40559) and it seems that it was too large. I instead went with the oldest listed (v3.0 build 36247) and it worked like a charm. It's important to note that the oldest listed version was smaller than the newest, not by much but that seems to have made all of the difference.

I Bought WRT32X with SN 22C1060...
Updated to Linksys Factory FW Ver. 1.0.180404.58
After trying a couple of 2019's betas I then uploaded ddwrt 09-20-2019-r41075 and it worked fine for me. I mean I dind't test anything yet just didn't get invalid firmware and get the ddwrt GUI.
