I am trying to determine if I can install dd-wrt on a Linksys EA6100. I haven't found anything saying it isn't supported, but I also haven't found anything for the Mediatek chip. I have attached the photos of the internals.
While there is a build for the WHR-1166D, getting the first copy of DD-WRT onto it remains an issue. I have done some research, but as yet have had no success. There is some possibility that an image can be built that can be loaded onto the unit via TFTP, but I would have to learn a lot about the Linux build process and creating an image before I could do so myself.

I was able to get a serial terminal open. Similar to the WRT1900AC. It is the 6-pin header (labelled J2). Pin 6 is ground (wouldn't solder for me), pin 5 is Tx, pin 3 is Rx. VCC is the square hole, pin 1, don't connect it. Settings are 57600 baud, 8N1.
Some dd-wrt wiki pages are up to date, others are not. PM me if you find an old one, I am trying to update them.
