Can anyone confirm if it is necessary to remove dd-wrt from both partitions in order to go back to stock?


If you follow the guide provided in #6 on this thread it overwrites DD-WRT, so you can write to one partition or both, so answer no need to remove DD-WRT on either partition.
hope this helps

tl;dr had the same issue and worked for me but only with the venom.img file uploaded to this thread, not with the oficial firmware from linksys.

I bought, literally yesterday, a linksys wrt32x with the idea of using dd-wrt on it to remember those days when I had a wrt54gl

I flashed it and I discovered the fact that 2 different partitions exist too late... none of those had the stock firmware.

Te solution provided here worked for me like a charm, but the stock image from Linsys website (FW_WRT32X_1.0.180404.58.img) didn't work I was bale to flash only the vemon.img provided in this thread.

@aaronburro I did not remove anything in fact now, I have dd-wrt in one partition an stock in ahoter.

Is there a good source for the pinouts/connector for the WRT32X using the USB-TTL cable? I just bought a used system on Ebay and I want to put a fresh/clean version of DD-WRT and the stock firmware on the system and be prepared for the worst.

Thanks.

This may be a long shot at this point in the conversation, but have you tried simply holding the reset on the back for 10 seconds, and if no response just unplug the power from the back of the router turn off the switch wait 10 seconds, and plug in, and power on. Only if it's not a extreme brick it should pull linksys factory firmware back. If no help then TTL cable will be a sure fix.

[quote="spuriousoffspring"]Like I said I haven't verified this for myself and there is a good chance of soft-bricking your WRT32X.
[color=red][b]Use at your own risk.[/b][/color]

[color=blue][b]Read the entire thread before you begin[/b][/color]

First, enable SSH in DD-WRT GUI [b]Services[/b] Tab - [b]Services[/b] Sub Tab - [i]Secure Shell[/i] Section - SSHd (Enable)

Second, download and install PuTTY and WinSCP (assuming you are using a Windows PC)
PuTTY:
https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html
WinSCP:
https://winscp.net/eng/index.php

PuTTY & WinSCP login credentials:
User Name is always: [b][i]root[/i][/b]
Password is: [i]your dd-wrt admin password[/i]

Third, use WinSCP to copy the [i]venom.img[/i] (attached to last post) to [b][i]/tmp[/i][/b] on your WRT32X.

Forth, open PuTTY and SSH into router

[u]The commands you will need to enter[/u]:

[b][i]erase nvram[/i][/b]
[b][i]mtd -r -e kernel1 write venom.img kernel1[/i][/b]

[color=blue][b]EDIT:[/b][/color] Correct commands are:
[b][i]mtd -e linux -r write /tmp/venom.img linux[/i][/b]
[b][i]mtd -e linux2 -r write /tmp/venom.img linux2[/i][/b]

I highly recommend you get a USB-TTL cable. It is the only way to recover your WRT32X if something goes wrong.

I currently use Windows. How do I use "mtd -e linux -r write /tmp/venom.img linux" command in Windows?
