@blkt is not kidding when he says disable your anti-virus. I've been banging my head against a wall all day trying to get an E3000 to update to the latest version. As luck would have it, the WRT32x I ordered came in today, so I switched gears to flash that, and I had the same problems! After a few choice words, I tried disabling my anti-virus, and everything flashed perfectly. $#@$R#@
Unfortunately, i lost the original partition during testing current and 'released'. Probably no great loss because stock is very minimalist.
So far I'm very pleased coming from a TPLink 1750. Needed more horsepower for VPN encryption. Can't get jffs on spare nvram working yet. Status claims 64mb, specs say 256 or 512mb. Maybe impossible....
Following the webflash updgrade using Telnet and setting the active partition, my WRT32X never reboots. Waited an hour. Manually rebooted it. Had to do the .img flash from the stock GUI again. Now I'm sitting at "Upgrading firmware... Please, wait." Has been this way for a while now.
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.
